Coronavirus mask prices expected to rise further.

Despite already having risen 500% since November, the Aeotec Health team is forecasting a further price rise for protective face masks this week.

At the source, we’re noting that prices for the raw material used to make the middle-layer on most masks increased today. Giving some days’ buffer for new pricing to trickle down to manufacturers, we’re advising partners that to anticipate a price rise of US$0.10 to US$0.21 per mask unit by the week’s end.
