N95 Grade Medical Protective Masks Market is forecasted to value over USD 1.8 billion by 2027 end and register a CAGR of 11.5 % from the forecast period 2020-2027.

The N95 graded masks are designed to block over 95% of test particles that are less than or equal to 0.3 microns. They fit closely to the face which is what allows the mask to filter as mech air intake as possible. The N95 masks cleared by the FDA are called surgical N95 respirators and they are to be used in healthcare settings only. These respirators receive a clearance which involves performance testing from testing flammability and fluidic resistance and safety data evaluation from biocompatibility testing. There are two types of N95 masks, one with the exhalation valve and one without the exhalation valve. The masks having exhalation valve are more preferred because it reduces sweat and is easy for breathing through. 
There has been a sudden rise in the demand for these masks, especially in the United States and European countries like Italy, Spain, France where the COVID-19 patient numbers have skyrocketed. The largest surgical mask manufacturer in the Unites States, Prestige Ameritech, has received a demand of over 1.4 billion masks. CDC has recommended that general public should not purchase the N95 mask as it limits the supply required to be provide to healthcare personnel and to stay indoors instead. But the public seem to pay no heed to the instructions provided by WHO and CDC which has increased the demand for these masks.

Over 9,900 machines are currently operating in the United States and each machine are capable of processing over 480 masks every day.
