Report Overview 

The global fashion face mask market size was valued at USD 465.4 million in 2019 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22.7% from 2020 to 2027.

People have been opting for a fashion face mask to save themselves from pollution, dust, and direct sunlight without compromising on their style statement.

U.S. fashion face mask market size

The recent, unprecedented spread of coronavirus across the globe, most notably in European and North American countries, has spurred the demand for all types of face covering masks, including fashion face mask.

Governments of many countries, including U.S. and France, have restricted the selling of surgical masks and recommended N95 mask, which effectively filters up to 95% of the tiny particles, including many viruses, to the normal public as the priority has shifted to the frontline workers in police and the healthcare sector, who are experiencing a shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE), including masks, surgical gloves, and gowns.

Enthused by the emergency existent in this space, leading fashion apparel manufacturers such as Prada, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, and Dior have been focusing on the concept of producing face mask for both medical-and consumer-grade. For instance, R-Collection, a fashion firm in Finland, has been engaged in producing face masks to help fight against the coronavirus pandemic. According to Lilli Norio, the head of design at the company, consumers are opting for masks that appear both dynamic and fashionable and do not necessarily have to be only available in the traditional white color. The fashion industry’s abrupt practice to make face masks has garnered praise and attention of consumers across the world, which is expected to positively impact the market growth.

Although the demand for fashion face mask has been growing, the industry witnesses fluctuations in demand, which can be mainly attributed to changing fashion trends among consumers. Besides, increasing preference for colored and designer bandannas and scarves used by consumers to cover their mouths is expected to have a negative influence on market growth.

Moreover, these practices are followed by famous bands in such countries.
