U.S. Negative Pressure Escape Masks Market size to exceed $90Mn by 2032

  • Published Date: December 14, 2022

U.S. Negative Pressure Escape Masks Market size is projected to surpass USD 90 million by the year 2032, according to a recent report announced by Global Market Insights Inc.

Growing awareness regarding airborne and communicable diseases is expected to drive the demand for negative pressure escape masks in the U.S. healthcare sector. The product is used for ensuring protection against non-toxic dust, and oil/water base particulates. They are suitable for application in the mining, medical, construction, and pharmaceutical sector and are widely used to safeguard medical practitioners from the risk of contracting airborne or communicable diseases.

Robust advancements in drug development activities and the pressing need for improved medicinal treatments for addressing diverse health conditions should elevate product penetration in the pharmaceutical sector. Numerous operations are carried out during the production of drug formulations, some of which involve the use of many volatile solvents and active pharmaceutical ingredients that can potentially be hazardous to workers. In such a working scenario, different types of the PPE products such as half-face masks, hoods, full-face masks, helmets, and visors are used to provide the utmost safety to health workers.

Growing instances of fire outbreaks across industrial sites

U.S. negative pressure escape masks market size from public service application is estimated to reach USD 3.5 million by 2032. Fire is a risk that is in virtually every industrial setting, but it becomes more lethal when workers and firefighters are exposed to smoke and other hazardous gases. Negative pressure escape masks are primarily used by firefighters for safeguarding their lives during such emergency situations. Air respirator such as negative pressure escape masks helps personnel to overcome oxygen-deficient atmospheres at the fire site and perform their duties effectively. It also helps workers to locate and reach exit routes during emergency situations. The high-performance filter provides thorough protection, while the wide lens ensures an increased field of vision, and the low breathing resistance reduces claustrophobia.

Rising cases of industrial fire outbreaks should amplify the demand for these masks in the public services sector. According to recent fire statistics from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), around 37,000 fires occur at industrial & manufacturing sites each year across the US.

Rising cases of infectious diseases to drive product deployment

U.S. negative pressure escape masks market share from medical & healthcare application will register over 6.5% CAGR between 2032 to 2032. Healthcare facilities use control measures such as isolation rooms, air filtration, negative pressure ventilation, and disinfection to minimize exposure to airborne infectious agents. However, these measures can be inadequate in some cases as healthcare workers can be prone to infectious airborne particles that remain suspended in the air for an extended duration of time.

Healthcare workers are required to use PPEs like negative pressure escape masks for respiratory protection. These masks can protect practitioners against infectious agents that are easily transmitted through the air and during aerosol-generating medical procedures. New research and development (R&D) efforts to formulate treatments for novel infectious diseases should elevate the demand for these masks in the healthcare sector.

Business expansion efforts by leading industry players

U.S. negative pressure escape masks market is inclusive of companies like 3M, Mine Safety Appliances (MSA), RPB Safety LLC, Honeywell International Inc., The Gerson Company, Bullard, Delta Plus Group, ILC Dover, and Gentex Corporation. These companies are focusing on expanding their product portfolio and production capacity to strengthen their business footprint. For instance, in March 2020, Honeywell International Inc. announced that it has expanded its operations at its Smithfield, R.I. eye protection products plant. The move aimed at manufacturing millions of N95 masks and hiring at least 500 new workers to support these efforts to deliver masks to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to boost the national stockpile.
