3M's estimated sales increase due to coronavirus 2020

Consumer demand for face masks has dramatically increased globally due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, to the extent that many stores have run out of them. As one of the world's largest manufacturers of N95 respiratory masks and other protective products, it is estimated that 3M Company could have a sales boost of up more than one billion U.S. dollars in 2020 because of coronavirus-related demand. Comparatively, during the the 'swine flu' H1N1 virus pandemic in 2009-2010, 3M's sales were boosted by 350 million U.S. dollars. President Trump's administration reportedly plans to order millions of face masks from 3M.
