Growing Intensity of Air Pollution Worldwide to Boost the Market
One of the central factors driving the protective face mask market growth is the intensification of air pollution and its effects on human health across globe. Recent data from the WHO reveals that 90% of people breathe polluted air, with ambient and household air pollution resulting in 7 million deaths worldwide every year. The main culprit is PM2.5 (particulate matter of less than 2.5 micro-meters), according to a report published by the World Bank, which penetrates the lungs and cardiovascular system, leading to life-threatening conditions such as stroke, lung cancer, respiratory infections, and heart disease. Protective face masks are effective in filtering these pollutants and preventing inhalation of deadly air contaminants. These masks are extensively used in urban areas, especially in developing countries, where energy consumption is high and pollution levels have reached inordinate levels.
