Production Enhancement by Leading Facemask Makers amid COVID-19 to Fuel the Market
The COVID-19 pandemic has and continues to ravage Europe, with cases soaring at a relentless pace. According to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), as of 16 February 2021, the number of coronavirus cases stood at 2,047,376 and the number of deaths at 495,716 across the European Union (EU). Protective face masks have been proven to be the first and the primary line of defense against the virus and to meet the escalating demand several companies have been enhancing their production over the past year. In May 2020, for instance, Honeywell signed a deal with the UK government to build a new production line with a capacity to manufacture 4.5 million FFP2 and FFP3 disposable face masks per month to aid the government’s efforts against the coronavirus. In June, the EU declared that it will increase mask production 20-fold by November. The Europe protective face mask market growth is thus set to skyrocket due to the COVID-19 contagion.

Innovative Offerings by Facemask Manufacturers to Accelerate Market Progress
The heightened need for protective face masks in Europe has not only pushed companies to ramp up production, but it has also stoked the creative energies of mask makers. For example, Osmotex, a Swiss sterilizing specialist, announced the development of a unique mask equipped with the osmosis mechanism, which allows the mask to self-sterilize and thus can be used multiple times. The mask is made of osmosis textile and, along with an N95 filter the mask also has a mini control box with a rechargeable battery to perform the sterilization process. France-based Saint-Gobain also announced plans to release its next-generation mask, PRECIMASK, by the end of 2020. This face mask, according to the company, will be transparent and have an unending lifespan due to its ceramic particle filters. These innovations are, thus, giving a positive thrust to this market amid the current pandemic.
Consistent Rise in COVID-19 Cases to Propel the Market
The major western European economies, mainly the UK, France, and Germany, are set to lead the Europe protective face mask market share during the forecast period on account of the relentless increase in coronavirus cases in these countries. For example, in Spain, latest data from the World Health Organization (WHO) show that at present, there are over 3 million active cases in the country and nearly 66,000 deaths. In the UK, as of 15 February 2021, over 4 million people are COVID positive, with the country reporting 117,166 deaths. In such a dire scenario, the demand for protective face masks is likely to remain exponentially high throughout 2021.

April 2020: DACH Schutzbekleidung announced that it will be delivering 300,000 respiratory masks and 3 million face masks to the German Federal Ministry of Health for distribution across critical infrastructures. By mid-April, the company will supply another 5 million masks.
