Published:  Nov 2022 Report Code: KSI061613126 Pages: 138

The global personal protective equipment market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.98%, reaching a market size of US$69.271 billion in 2027 from US$37.929 billion in 2020.

Growing demand for personal protective equipment to ensure the safety of employees working in mining, petrochemicals, and various other industries will fuel the growth of the personal protective equipment market.

Personal protective equipment (PPE) includes clothing and equipment worn by employees, workers, or staff to protect or shield their bodies from workplace hazards like physical, heat, chemicals, electricity, airborne particulate matter, and biohazards. PPE includes a variety of items like protective gear, eye protection, gloves, safety footwear, high-visibility apparel, and life vests that are designed to protect various body parts from severe work-related injuries. Additionally, respiratory protection equipment is included (RPE).

Personal protective equipment can impose a barrier between the wearer and the working environment and hence are used in diverse services and manufacturing industries. Thus, the user is prone to witness additional stress and discomfort and weakening their ability to carry out their work. Thus, ergonomically designed personal protective equipment can help to minimize such barriers and help in ensuring maximum safety and healthy working conditions. The need for PPE is assessed by a person who is competent to judge whether other methods of risk control can offer better protection of safety and health than the provision of PPE. Suitable PPE is also provided for visitors who may be exposed to hazards in the workplace.

The global personal protective equipment market is anticipated to witness steady growth during the given forecast period. Stringent occupational health and safety regulations pertaining to the safety of the workers at the workplace will drive the demand for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) from various end-use industries. Growing employee awareness related to personal safety will also boost the demand for PPE during the given forecast period. Issues affecting the use of PPE include discomfort and inconvenience, and inappropriate or poorly maintained equipment. The rising adoption of the automated process in industries and construction sites requires fewer workers and has resulted in a decreasing demand for personal protective equipment.

By Type

By type, the global personal protective equipment market is segmented as head protection, foot protection, hand protection, eye and face protection, hearing protection, fall protection, and respiratory protection. The hand protection segment is projected to witness significant market growth during the forecast period.

By End-Use Industry

In terms of end-user, the global personal protective equipment market is segmented as mining, oil and gas, construction, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and others. The construction industry is likely to provide significant scope for personal protective equipment owing to the rising construction activities in developing economies, thus, rising the demand for personal protective equipment during the given time frame.

By Geography

Geographically, the global personal protective equipment market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific. North America accounted for a significant market share in 2018 owing to stringent regulations imposed by regulatory bodies such as OSHA. Asia Pacific is projected to witness significant regional market growth during the forecast period. On account of economic growth and rapid industrialization. Growing awareness regarding workplace safety will also augment the growth of the market in the region.
