TOKYO -- Japan's top mask maker plans to export the protective face coverings to Asian countries now that domestic demand has been sated.

Unicharm early next year will begin exporting about 20 million face masks per month, spread out to India, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand. It plans to add more export markets in the future.
