Impact of COVID-19 on the Thermal Induction Cap Coatings Market

Over the years, surgical masks have remained one of the most important protective gear among medical professionals when performing medical procedures.

Surgical masks provide protection against exposure to harmful bacteria and other organisms found in blood and other bodily fluids that medical professionals may come into contact with during surgical procedures.

As the number of surgeries continues to rise in direct proportion to the expanding geriatric population, the demand for protective surgical equipment, including surgical masks, is expected to prevail in the coming years.

According to statistics from The Lancet, the number of surgeries performed globally exceeded 313 million in recent years and continues to increase year on year, providing substantial revenue opportunities for market players.

Similarly, high levels of air pollution in East Asian countries such as China, South Korea, and Japan have made mask-wearing a common practice among people in those regions.

Additionally, mask sales in the aforementioned regions have historically seen a surge during flu seasons. In this sense, the COVID-19 outbreak is creating an unprecedented demand for surgical masks, as they are an integral part of routine during the pandemic.
