Published:  Aug 2022 Report Code: KSI061613526 Pages: 90

Canada protective clothing market is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 3.01% over the forecast period to attain a market size of US$318.066 million in 2027, from US$258.510 million in 2020. The country's growing emphasis on worker safety in hazardous working environments, backed up by strict worker safety regulations, is significantly increasing the demand for protective clothing in the country. Increasing investments in the country’s healthcare infrastructure are one of the driving factors of the Canadian protective clothing market. In April 2019, the Ontario government announced plans to invest $27 billion over the next ten years in essential hospital infrastructure. The investment will allow us to increase the frontline care capacity with more than 3,000 new hospital beds. With expanding healthcare infrastructure, the demand for various types of protective clothing will increase across the country’s healthcare sector during the next five years. Rising manufacturing across chemical, aerospace and defense industries also fuels the protective clothing market growth in Canada. 

The recent global pandemic due to coronavirus is acting as a major factor in the current booming demand for protective clothing in the country. The Ontario government has recently launched a $50-million fund to help companies to re-start their operations in order to manufacture more medical equipment and personal protective gear for front-line workers. The Government of Canada has also signed a new procurement agreement with Canadian companies to purchase and boost the capacity to manufacture supplies and equipment including surgical masks, portable ventilators, and rapid testing kits. It has also signed letters of intent with five companies, including Calco Group and Precision Biomonitoring, to produce additional hand sanitizer, test kits, and protective apparel, including masks and gowns.

COVID-19 Impact:

The COVID 19 pandemic has positively impacted the Canadian protective clothing market. The worldwide coronavirus pandemic is a significant contributor to the nation's already growing demand for protective apparel. The Ontario government has announced funds to assist businesses in resuming production so that more medical equipment and personal protection equipment for front-line employees may be produced. In order to increase the production of items like surgical masks, portable ventilators, and rapid test kits, the Canadian government has also entered into a new procurement arrangement with Canadian businesses.
