At the same time, with the improvement of people's living standards and health awareness, the demand for medical masks will continue to grow.

   In terms of production, China is a large country in masks, accounting for about 50% of the world's mask production. But before the outbreak, China's daily mask production peaked at more than 2000 million. Since the beginning of 2020, the outbreak of new crown pneumonia, medical masks and other medical protective equipment in short supply, the world once faced a shortage of production capacity and insufficient demand for masks. Driven by policy support and other factors, daily output grew rapidly. According to the data, in early February 2020, the total production capacity of China's mask industry exceeded 20 million units/day. By the end of February 2020, the daily output of China's mask industry will reach 0.11 billion masks, and the daily output will reach 0.116 billion masks.


   With the rapid growth of daily production, China's mask production capacity is also rising rapidly. Data show that the production of masks in 2020 will be 10.1 billion, up 102 percent year-on-year. In 2021, as the epidemic is under control, market demand will decline to some extent, and mask excess capacity will face a major adjustment. Overall production will decline, rising 6.93 percent year-on-year to 9.4 billion.
