Europe Protective Clothing market was evaluated at US$1,424.31 million for the year 2019.
The protective clothing market in the European region is projected to show robust growth during the coming years due to the high incidence of COVID-19 outbreak throughout the region across the various countries which include Italy, UK, Germany, and others. This, in turn, is projected to boost the demand for protective clothing and significantly add up to the market growth during the short run.
Furthermore, the booming manufacturing sector coupled with solid growth of oil and gas, and mining industry in countries like Russia also provide an impetus for the market to surge over the forecast period and beyond. Also, the presence of well-established industries in countries such as Germany, France, and Italy among others is considered to be one of the prime factors bolstering the demand for these types of clothing throughout the region. The booming manufacturing sector in the United Kingdom and growth of numerous industries which were earlier hindered by the Brexit deal also shows the potential for the market to surge in the region during the coming years as the outlook for the manufacturing sector in the country looks positive over the next five years as the uncertainty in the business environment caused by the Brexit is expected to reduce.
Moreover, growing investments in the oil and gas sectors in the region also provide burgeoning growth opportunities for the key players to invest in the region and capture a market share to maintain a competitive edge in the protective clothing market in Europe. For instance, in January 2019, Irkutsk Polymer Plant, a subsidiary of Irkutsk Oil Company (INK), awarded a contract to Toyo Engineering Corporation to build a 650,000 t/y ethylene and polyethylene plant in Ust-Kut, Russia. As such investments into the expansion of oil and petrochemical production facilities continue, the demand for protective clothing is expected to increase. This is driving the growth of the protective clothing market in the European region in the coming years.
