Mask Wearing 101. There is clear scientific evidence that wearing a face covering prevents the spread of COVID - 19 . While cloth face coverings are strongly encouraged to reduce the spread of COVID - 19 , it may not be possible in every situation or for some people to wear a face covering.

COVID - 19 is mostly spread via respiratory droplets — the little secretions we generate when we sneeze or cough — and face masks can help to catch some of these fluid splashes. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently updated its guidelines to recommend all Americans wear

"Masks will become a leading product in the same way as Coca-Cola or Nutella, all the brands are preparing to make commercial offers for the start of the school year." This statement by Thierry Cotillard, president of the Intermarché and Netto brands, underlines the change in behavior of the French since the middle of July.

Demand for masks is on the rise again

Sales of masks have started to rise again. "The week of confinement, we sold up to 10 million masks per day in our stores, which represented 50% of the distribution market, assures Thierry Cotillard. The figures then fell to 150,000 in June but they come to go back to 1million units, or 18% of the market according to the research firm Nielsen. "

A trend which should strengthen in September. This is what all the players in the trade are anticipating.

The proposal will be structured around four axes to meet the needs of each family: washable fabric masks, lots of 10 surgical masks intended for children, lots of 10 and 50 surgical masks for adults.

The return of sea freight is lowering costs

Good news, prices are being announced down sharply in supermarkets and hypermarkets. Current prices (on average 25 euros for a box of 50 masks, which has become the market standard) should soon be halved. When? Around the start of the school year. The warning signs of this collapse are already noticeable and are making smart buyers happy. A Parisian store Franprix has just launched a promotional operation at 12.99 euros per box of 50 masks. "It is an isolated initiative, underlines François Alarcon, director of marketing of Franprix. The stores have a small autonomy to make supplies directly; but the sign does not intend to generalize this operation in all its stores [900 points of sale including 85% in Paris and in the Paris region]. "

This prudence plays into the hands of the mavericks who obtain their supplies directly from independent importers.

We no longer have to transport boxes of Kleenex in first class


How to explain this market inversion? Two factors are at work: on the one hand, the supply, which remains mainly Chinese, has become bloated; on the other hand, deliveries are now made by boat.
