Market Size & Trends

The Asia Pacific disposable face masks market size was estimated at USD 495.5 million in 2023 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 4.5% from 2024 to 2030.

Though disposable masks may not offer complete protection from harmful particles present in the air, these reduce the direct impact of environmental contaminants and are widely available in stores. Thus, a large number of people in the region have been using these masks.

China Disposable Face Masks Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

Asia Pacific disposable face masks market accounted for a 34.1% share of the global disposable face masks industry in 2023.

Product Insights

The protective mask segment accounted for a revenue share of 36.5% in 2023. Protective masks are specially designed to offer the wearer a physical barrier between their mouth and nose, restricting potential contaminants in the environment from entering the body. The mouth and nose are two of the most vulnerable entry points for foreign particles; thus, the demand for these masks has been high in the industrial and medical sectors.

The non-woven mask is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% from 2024 to 2030. Non-woven masks are gaining popularity among consumers as they do not contain latex or ethylhexyl phthalate materials that can cause respiratory issues. These masks are manufactured from a fabric-like staple fiber and long fibers glued together via chemical, heat, mechanical, or solvent treatment, offering high microbial filtration efficiency, which is one of the key reasons driving the product demand.

Distribution Channel Insights

Based on distribution channels, the offline segment led the market and accounted for a revenue share of 73.8% in 2023. Offline channels include hyper/supermarkets, retailers, convenience stores, direct selling, and brand outlets. The segment growth is attributed to consumer satisfaction, and physical verification of products.

The online distribution channel is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2024 to 2030. The availability of a wide range of products in online retail stores as compared to brick-and-mortar shops is expected to be the primary driver for online sales. Furthermore, e-commerce offers an easy and robust platform to small- and medium-scale manufacturers to list their products online. Online websites and e-commerce retailers allow buyers to compare numerous products at once and provide reviews from other shoppers, thus saving the lead time for consumers. These are among the main factors driving segment growth.

Application Insights

The industrial application segment accounted for a revenue share of 43.2% in 2023. The establishment of a large number of manufacturing and pharmaceutical research and development centers in this region is expected to increase the demand for disposable masks. Countries such as India, China, and Indonesia are among the largest manufacturing hubs in the world. According to WorldAtlas, China has one of the leading pharma research industries in the world, covering synthetic chemicals and drugs, apparatus and instruments, medical devices, hygiene materials, and pharmaceutical machinery.
