The global disposable oxygen masks market is growing at a high CAGR during the forecast period (2023-2030).
Disposable oxygen masks cover the complete face or just the lips and nostrils. Silicone, plastic, and rubber are used in oxygen masks. In some cases, instead of using a mask, oxygen is given through a nasal cannula. Users can get a better fit and more comfort with disposable oxygen masks. The ergonomic and soft shape of disposable oxygen masks is designed for patient comfort. Disposable oxygen masks with barbed fittings make it difficult for the patient to disconnect the mask, while adjustable nose clips and elastic straps keep it in place for a better fit.
Product launches in the Disposable Oxygen Masks are expected to drive market growth.
On 29 July 2021, Vyaire Medical launched a new oxygen therapy device to advance the standard of care for those patients receiving low-flow oxygen therapy. For instance, Dubbed AirLife Oxygen, the mask features various nasal cannula, oxygen masks and non-rebreather benefits to revolutionize a patient’s treatment. Moreover, the mask design distributes oxygen flow through unique jet orifices, creating a soft curtain of oxygen around the nose and mouth, reducing the risk of rebreathing carbon dioxide, and patients can still eat, drink and easily communicate without removing the mask. Thus, the market is expected to drive in the forecast period from the above statements.
The availability of alternative products such as a nasal cannula, short-term use, and government interventions are some factors the market is expected to get hampered in the forecast period.
COVID-19 pandemic has positively impacted the healthcare industry with increased demand for disposable oxygen masks, which is likely to drive the market during the forecast period. COVID- 19 infections can produce various symptoms, but they most commonly affect the respiratory system. These symptoms might range from a sore throat to cough to more serious lung issues. Reactive airway disease, which causes wheezing and shortness of breath, or severe respiratory compromise, which can be caused by acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and necessitates mechanical ventilation, are more severe symptoms. Moreover, Supplemental oxygen is the primary and most important step in treating severe COVID-19 hypoxemia patients. It should be a top priority in resource-constrained environments when invasive ventilation is limited. The use of a non-rebreathing mask and prone stance can help to enhance oxygen delivery. Lung protective ventilation is critical in these individuals. COVID-19 severe pneumonia varies from other causes of severe pneumonia or acute respiratory distress syndrome in several ways, and reducing the positive end-expiratory pressure level on the ventilator may be crucial. This ventilation approach can lower the currently high case fatality rate of more than 50% in COVID-19 patients who are invasively ventilated.
In contrast, the pandemic interrupts the supply chain and process. Many companies will vary to other geographic regions to ensure that products remain available and protect their supply chain. Thus, the market is expected to gain traction quickly with the resumption of economic activities from the above statements.

The increasing prevalence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, the rising geriatric population, increased health awareness, increasing demand for disposable oxygen masks, and product launches by the key players are some factors the market is expected to boost in the forecast period. For instance, it is estimated that approximately 14.8 million adults have been diagnosed with COPD, and approximately 12 million people were not yet diagnosed in 2020. More than 50% of adults with low pulmonary function were unaware that they had COPD so the actual number may be higher. Moreover, Dynarex stated in June 2019 that it had introduced a new product line that was added to its existing portfolio. Customers will receive a one-stop shopping experience, strengthening brand loyalty. Therefore, it has increased the demand for disposable oxygen masks.
