Carbon Respirator Market: Introduction
- A carbon respirator is a carbon activated mask designed to protect the facial area and the mucous membranes of the eye, lip, and nose from harmful air pollutants and airborne infections. A carbon respirator features a carbon activated filter to eliminate germs and pollutants. The filter is made of polyester and polyamide and active carbon. Active carbon has a large surface area and absorbs toxic gases more effectively than other respirator masks.
Key Drivers of the Global Carbon Respirator Market
- Rise in air borne diseases and increasing concerns related to air pollution is driving the demand for carbon respirators across the globe. Rapid industrialization and growing urbanization are the key factors contributing to the rising air pollution across the world. Around 2.6 billion people are expected to live in emerging cities by 2025, a rise of approximately 70% from the current position.
- Decrease in indoor air quality (IAQ) levels at alarming rates in major cities such as Delhi, Beijing, and other metros in India and China are anticipated to propel the demand for carbon respirators during the forecast period.
- Rising population and large number of middle class families in emerging countries with increasing disposable income influences consumers to invest in personal protective equipment including face masks and hand gloves. Moreover, end-users tend to use air carbon respirators for protection against allergens and contaminants that directly affects breathing efficiency.
Opportunities in the Global Carbon Respirator Market
- The current coronavirus crisis offers significant opportunities for carbon respirators. Demand for carbon respirators has extended from its niche segments to several other mainstream segments including salons, hotels, transportation, airports, and gyms. Moreover, the step by step unlocking in major towns across the world is expected to increase the demand for carbon respirators.
