Market Overview

People who work in hospitals, clinics, and healthcare facilities are prone to exposure to biological hazards and pathogens. Facial masks are used to protect professionals against such infections. According to the Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992 in Europe, every employer should ensure that suitable personal protective equipment (PPE) is provided free of charge. This is necessary wherever there are concerns about health. Employers should also provide information, training, and instructions on the use of this equipment.

Growing awareness among people regarding personal safety will surge demand and the growth of the facial mask market. It is sole responsibility of a facility in-charge or the employer to supply PPE and train the staff and workers about its usage. In Russia, the Decree of the Ministry of Labor and Social Development of the Russian Federation N 290H was adopted on approval of the Inter-industry regulations of provisions of employees with special clothing, special footwear, and other personal protective equipment, as amended in 2009. Such safety regulations favor the adoption of facial masks, driving the expansion of the facial mask market size.
