India Protective Clothing Market is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 4.99% over the forecast period to attain a market size of US$341.312 million in 2027, from US$242.716 million in 2020.  Rising concerns regarding workers’ safety in various industries with hazardous work environments are boosting the demand for protective clothing in the country. The country’s increasing investment in industries such as healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals to ramp up domestic production is also contributing to the increasing demand for protective clothing in the country. For instance, in 2018, Asian Paints invested Rs4,000 crore to expand the capacity at its Mysuru and Vishakhapatnam facilities. With an increasing number of investors coming forward to invest in ever-growing sectors including pharma and biotechnology, supported by the positive measures taken up by the central and state governments, the country’s cleanroom industry is booming, which, in turn, is also fuelling the demand for protective clothing in India.

The recent COVID-19 global pandemic outbreak has also severely affected India. With a surging number of people with coronavirus and the need to treat them while preventing the spread is also augmenting the demand for protective clothing in the country. The Indian government is actively collaborating with protective clothing manufacturers to keep up the supply of required medical protective gear and medical equipment, including masks and ventilators. For example, the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) has collaborated with local companies to manufacture 20,000 N99 masks per day.


Clinical manifestations of 2019-nCoV contamination might range from mild pneumonia to severe pneumonia with severe respiratory distress and multi-organ discomfort, ultimately leading to death. Global case numbers are anticipated to rise, and countries have been contacted to assess their pandemic flu readiness. Therefore, it is anticipated that disposable protective clothes will be crucial in the COVID-19 pandemic. To address its needs during the pandemic, India is importing copious amounts of personal protective apparel from China, Singapore, and Korea. Given that the government has classified the food business as one of the vital services, the need for protective clothing from the food and beverage industry is anticipated to increase significantly. Even if the limits are lifted, there will still be a rise in the demand for disposable gloves. Since significant government investments have been made to create COVID-19 vaccine, it is anticipated that the pharmaceutical business would see a remarkable boom during the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to prevent cross-contamination during the manufacturing of pharmaceutical products and for use by scientists working on the creation of vaccines, it is also anticipated that this will raise demand for protective clothing market.
