The Top Selling PPE Products Of 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic has now put personal protective equipment at the forefront of everybody’s priorities. Whether you are a healthcare worker, someone who works at Walmart, or even someone who wants to grab a quick bite at MacDonald’s, it is now impossible without wearing the right PPE. So, the question is, what are the most popular PPE products of 2020? We’ve spoken to a couple of industry experts and have the results for you below.
Face Masks – Everybody is Wearing Them
We’d have to say that face masks are the biggest winners here. If anything, the demand for face masks at the start of March 2020 went up by 200%, and that later quadrupled. Not only are N95s now, some of the most sought-after face masks, but many businesses are now getting into the PPE industry because the demand for face masks is at an all-time high. However, the biggest sellers would have to be disposable cloth masks. In some countries, disposable face masks are still being sold at a premium mainly because demand outweighs supply. It may remain like this at least until the threat of the pandemic looms.

Gloves – Latex, Disposable plastic gloves and others
Protective gloves are now the second most in-demand PPE products. In the past, gloves would only be worn by employees in the food industry. However, now just about anyone and everyone needs to wear a pair of gloves regardless of its type. Though not unsurprisingly, the most commonly worn type is disposable plastic gloves. Not only are they cheap, but they provide adequate protection so that anyone can wear them.
Gloves help protect wearers from the COVID-19 virus by preventing it from making contact with the skin. Since researchers discovered that COVID-19 spread through skin contact, it seems as though the demand for gloves more than quadrupled overnight. Today, everyone who goes to buy groceries to the person working as a valet needs to be wearing gloves, making it an essential PPE.

While hand sanitizers don’t prevent COVID-19, the way masks and gloves do; they are nevertheless an important part of preventing the spread of the virus. That’s why it is also one of the essential PPE products that, at one point, was hard to find. While supplies in most stores for hand sanitizer is replenished, for the most part, there are still strict limits on how much you can purchase. Not to mention that the demand has led to many knockoffs and low-quality imitations being sold online.
Hand sanitizers work by making sure that your hands are thoroughly sanitized. Doing this prevents the spread of the virus from contact, especially if you shake hands or touch something contaminated.
