Asia Pacific Powered Air-Purifying Respirator (PAPR) Market Size, Share, Opportunities, COVID-19 Impact, And Trends By Facepiece Type (Full Facepiece, Half Mask Facepiece, Others), By Industry Vertical (Manufacturing, Construction, Mining, Healthcare, Oil And Gas, Chemical), And By Country - Forecasts From 2022 To 2027

Published:  Mar 2022 Report Code: KSI061612307 Pages: 115

The Asia Pacific powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR) market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 11.12% during the forecast period to reach US$102.411 million by 2027, from US$50.520 million in 2020.

Powered Air-purifying respirators (PAPRs) use canisters, filters, or cartridges to remove gases, vapors, aerosols (droplets and solid particles), or a combination of contaminants that are present in the air. Because these respirators do not provide oxygen, they cannot be used in an oxygen-deficient or immediately dangerous to life or health environment. The suitable respirator for a given situation is determined by the contaminant level present in the environment. A powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR) is a type of respiratory protective device that supplies and filters breathing gas using a fan. The breathable air supplied is generally clean and comes from an uncontaminated source, such as most buildings with HVAC systems or from Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus cylinders when used outside. PAPRs frequently protect against chemicals and gases in addition to filtering particles out of the airflow before they enter the user's lungs.

Growth Driver of Powered Air-Purifying Respirator

A growing number of large-scale infrastructural development, such as hotels and medical hospital projects, are expected to drive the market. Increased demand for floor area expansion in various industries is expected to lead to an increase in construction and renovation projects across the country. As a result, product demand is expected to rise as the construction sector expands. A major contributor to the growth of powered air-purifying respirators is expected to be the air pollution in the region, according to WHO data. According to new World Health Organization data, air pollution levels in many parts of Asia remain dangerously high. One-third, or 2.2 million, of the world's 7 million premature deaths each year are caused by household (indoor) and ambient (outdoor) air pollution in the Western Pacific Region, home to one-quarter of the world's population.  This is expected to lead to the growth of PARP in the Asia Pacific as cleaner air to breathe is the need of the hour.

Powered Air-Purifying Respirators Restraints

With the high cost associated with the raw materials and the complexity of the manufacturing processes, powered air-purifying respirator production is highly capital-intensive. Primary supply chain operations and material manufacturers have collaborated throughout the value chain to establish these products and accessories at a low cost. The initial investment is greater, which is expected to be a hurdle for new market players. An intricate production process, combined with the need to achieve safety standards, is a big hurdle in this powered air-purifying respirators market. PAPRs that do not meet safety regulations will not be commercially available. Any flaws in the production process would result in the product being rejected due to strict standards. This could pose a significant challenge to the market.

COVID-19 Impact on Asia Pacific Powered Air-Purifying Respirator (PAPR) Market

Due to the increasing number of Coronavirus cases, healthcare workers are at a high risk of contracting respiratory illnesses during patient check-ups and operations, which is expected to increase demand for these products.  Stringent regulatory standards regarding workplace safety and health in high-risk activities are expected to drive market growth over the forecast period.

Regional Analysis

Demand for powered air-purifying respirators products is expected to grow the fastest in the Asia Pacific over the forecast period. A rising number of industrial casualties in the region's emerging economies due to a lack of employee safety practices and appropriate face shields is expected to drive market growth in the region over the forecasted period.
