Numerous organizations across the region have introduced standards and practices to improve worker safety. For instance, under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a number of regulations and standards to protect worker safety. As per these regulations, employees must be provided with the necessary negative pressure escape masks when working in an environment with a high risk of exposure to biological, radiological, chemical, or nuclear (CBRN) substances.
 

These masks are utilized in a variety of industries, including construction, mining, oil & gas, chemical manufacturing, marine, etc. They are commonly utilized in the medical and healthcare industries to avoid or prevent contamination brought on by communicable or airborne diseases. One of the pivotal application of negative pressure escape masks is in the pharmaceutical sector for developing drug formulations. The drug formulation process involves the use of many active medicinal chemicals and volatile solvents that could be dangerous for employees. To ensure worker safety under these circumstances, the use of PPE devices like helmets, hoods, visors, and half- and full-face masks becomes essential. Similarly, the manufacturing process of medical tablets involves the possibility of exposure to fine active medicinal components that can get inhaled by workers and cause health issues. Using of masks with air filters can shield workers during such drug development process in the pharmaceutical sector.
 

High cost of negative pressure escape masks can be one of the key factors that will impact U.S. negative pressure escape masks market growth. The production of these masks requires the use of expensive raw materials including silicon rubber, neoprene rubber, silicone, and other flexible forms of rubbers, which raises the price of the finished product. The manufacturing of these masks is also labor and machine-intensive, which raises the final cost of the product. Apart from this, leading product manufacturers in the region like 3M and Honeywell are relying on imported raw materials that increase the cost of the overall product.

U.S. negative pressure escape masks market from industrial application is estimated to record over USD 50 million by 2032. Numerous industries including oil and gas, chemical manufacturing, marine, mining, nuclear, metal fabrication, aerospace manufacturing, food manufacturing, textile manufacturing, etc. use negative pressure escape masks. Chemical substances used in paints, varnishes, and degreasers as well as emissions from welding, coal tar, and diesel engines are mostly blamed for generating harmful vapors that can impact human health.
 

To need to ensure adequate worker safety has encourage companies in both the chemical production and oil & gas industries to deploy air purifying respirators. For instance, half mask and full-face respirators are used to a greater extent in chemical manufacturing to provide workers with breathable, clean air in environments that are heavily concentrated with dangerous chemicals or gas.
 

Increasing use of negative pressure escape masks in military and aviation applications

U.S. negative pressure escape masks market from military and aviation application is estimated to record over USD 5.5 million by 2032. Military soldiers frequently wear negative pressure escape masks to shield themselves from harmful gases produced from weapons during battle or to prevent contact with harmful chemicals. These masks are also widely deployed in the aviation sector, notably in crisis situations. They feature anti-claustrophobic clear hood that is useful during accidents, industrial spills, terrorist attacks, and other harmful environments.
 

Strategic expansion activities to augment U.S. negative pressure escape masks industry outlook

Some of the leading companies in the U.S. negative pressure escape masks market include RPB Safety LLC, Mine Safety Appliances (MSA), The Gerson Company, Honeywell International Inc., Delta Plus Group, ILC Dover, Shigematsu Works Company Limited, Gentex Corporation, RSG Safety BV, Drägerwerk AG & Co. KGaA, Moldex-Metric Inc, Scandia Gear Europe B.V., Kasco srl, and 3M. These companies are looking to increase their production output to meet emerging product demand, especially from the healthcare sector.
 

Impacts of COVID-19 pandemic on the U.S. negative pressure escape masks market

COVID-19 pandemic had a positive impact on the U.S. negative pressure escape masks industry growth. Rising number of COVID patients during the peak of the pandemic led to a surge in the demand of medical mask and respirators in the region. Due to high demand for PPE, many companies began expanding their production capacity. For instance, the U.S. Department of Defense recently gave 3M two contracts to increase the manufacturing N95 respirator in the United States.
