The global face shield market is expected to grow from $2.60 billion in 2020 to $2.86 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.8%. The growth is mainly due to surging face shield demand during the outbreak of COVID-19 as it adds an extra level of protection from getting infected by the virus. The market is expected grow at 10.2% annually to $4.22 billion by 2025.
The face shield market consists of sales of face shields and related services by entities (organizations, sole traders and partnerships) that manufacture face shield that is worn over the face as personal protective equipment.A face shield is simply a curved plastic or Plexiglas panel attached to a band that can be worn over the face, and it should fit securely such that there is no gap between the band and forehead and extend beyond the chin.
Many workers in the medical, dental and veterinary industries use it to protect their facial area and associated mucous membranes from body fluids, sprays and splashes. This includes only goods and services that are traded between entities or sold directly to end consumers.
The main types of face shields are reusable and disposable. They are made from cellulose acetate or polycarbonate and can be used in a variety of industries, including healthcare, construction, oil &gas, and manufacturing.
Asia Pacific was the largest region in the face shield market in 2020.This region is expected to continue to be the fastest-growing region in the forecast period.
This report covers Asia-Pacific and Western Europe.
The availability of counterfeit products and the inefficiency of the face shield in completely preventing the spread of the virus are expected to limit the growth of the face shield market.Products such as masks are still the preferred alternatives to face shields.
A study published Physics of Fluids by AIP publishing used visualizations to know how effective face shields are at reducing the spread of the virus and the result showed that the face shield did block the initial forward motion of the simulated cough or sneeze but the expelled droplets were still able to move around the visor and were spread out to the larger area. The availability of counterfeit products and the inefficiency of the face shield in completely preventing the spread of the virus are expected to limit the growth of the face shield market.
Aspen Surgical Products, Inc., a leader of surgical disposable products, purchased North Carolina-based Precept Medical Products in May 2020 for an undisclosed sum. Precept is a leader in the US surgical face mask market with its high-quality Fogshield brand and also offers a full line of procedure face masks, face shield, non-surgical isolation gowns, lab jackets, scrubs, coveralls, patient gowns, lab coats, and cold therapy packs. The acquisition will enhance Aspen’s product portfolio with products that are critical for the health and safety of healthcare professionals.
Awareness due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and several government initiatives contributed to the growth of the face shield market.According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the coronavirus transmits through droplets of saliva when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
The awareness could be due to a spike in the number of COVID-19 cases and lockdowns imposed by governments across the globe.Initiatives by the government to reduce the spread of the virus supported the face shield market.
The European Commission, for example, has waived customs duties, VAT, on protective equipment, testing kits, medical devices and other items until the end April 2021. The awareness due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and several government initiatives drove the face shield market.
Face shield manufacturers are using 3D printing machines to manufacture the face shield. 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, uses computer-aided designs to create three-dimensional objects via a layering technique. For instance, in April 2020, Adidas worked with Carbon to manufacture a 3D-printed face shield, and the face shields are used to support healthcare organizations and underserved communities. Anatomiz3D is an Indian 3D modeling and 3-D printing company that specializes in healthcare. Anatomiz3D manufactured cost-effective 3D printed face shields for COVID-19 protection and delivered 3D printed face shields for frontline workers.
