Global Healthcare PPE Demand amid COVID-19 Impact, is expected to reach 265.4 million units by August 2020, the US to witness the highest demand
The healthcare workers rely on personal protective equipment to protect themselves and their patients from being infected and infecting others. But shortages of such PPE are leaving doctors, nurses and other frontline workers dangerously ill-equipped to care for COVID-19 patients, due to limited access to supplies such as gloves, medical masks, respirators, goggles, face shields, gowns, and aprons. The World Health Organization has warned that severe and mounting disruption to the global supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) caused by rising demand, panic buying, hoarding and misuse is putting lives at risk from the new coronavirus and other infectious diseases. As the number of COVID-19 cases continues to grow worldwide, political leaders are encouraging physical (or “social”) distancing to slow the rate of transmission. The goal of this practice is to flatten the curve of a new infection, thereby avoiding a surge of demand on the health care system, but the effects of physical distancing may take weeks to appear.

Healthcare Personal Protective Equipment manufacturers are racing to boost production of the medical PPE required to save the lives of many critically ill COVID-19 patients, but they will not be able to ramp up production quickly enough to meet the demands of the exponentially growing cases of COVID-19. 3M Company, Dowdupont, MSA Safety, Honeywell International, Ansell Limited are among the largest suppliers of medical personal protective equipment, and these are working day and night to meet increased global demand. For instance: Since January, 3M has doubled production of N95 respirators to 1.1 billion per year at its global manufacturing facilities, including in the U.S., Asia and Europe. 3M aims to double its capacity again to 2 billion per year within the next 12 months. In this crisis, 3M is experiencing an unprecedented surge in demand for N95 respirators, and demand will outpace supply for the foreseeable future.

Across the world, frontline medical staff is clamoring for face masks and other personal protective equipment (PPE). In the United States, the new epicentre of the pandemic, shortages are so acute that health workers have taken to social media to appeal for help under the hashtag. Frontline medical staff in many countries say shortages of masks and other equipment have left them vulnerable to catching the virus - which forces them into isolation and reduces staff numbers. There are two main kinds of mask: The surgical masks worn routinely on many Asian streets, which can provide some protection; and the higher-standard respirators, often known by designations such as N95 or FFP (“filtering facepiece”), which are meant for medical procedures to protect workers from the droplets through which the virus spreads. The demand for all of them has skyrocketed. Besides, the government is taking initiatives regarding healthcare PPE production given rising COVID-19 cases across the world. NSW Health is implementing a state-wide strategy to ensure all staff has the personal protective equipment needed to protect them at work by collaborating with the Federal Government to access the national medical stockpile and seeking alternative supply chains. UNICEF Spain has donated 418,000 face masks to the Government of Spain in support of the national response on COVID-19. Announcing Indian Railways’ foray into another major COVID-19 relief initiative, Minister Piyush Goyal states that it will soon begin large-scale manufacturing of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) kits to augment their supply amidst a growing demand while at the same time, ensure that India’s medical staff are adequately equipped to fight COVID-19.
