Japan Protective Clothing Market Size, Share, Opportunities, COVID-19 Impact, And Trends By Type (Flame Retardant Apparel, Chemical Defending Garment, Cleanroom Clothing, Mechanical Protective Clothing, Limited General-Use Clothing), And By End-User Industry (Oil And Gas, Chemical, Pharmaceuticals, Aerospace And Defense, Healthcare, Government) - Forecasts From 2022 To 2027

Published:  Aug 2022 Report Code: KSI061613533 Pages: 90

Japan protective clothing market is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 4.74% over the forecast period to attain a market size of US$714.294 million in 2027, from US$516.671 million in 2020.  

Japan’s growing pharmaceutical industry is one of the major factors that is boosting the market growth of protective clothing in the country. The booming aging population in the country is leading to rising manufacturing across the pharmaceutical industry. This is further supported by the government’s favorable policies to promote and attract pharma companies, both foreign and domestic, to the Japanese market. For example, the revision of the nation’s pharmaceuticals law, PMD Act, in 2014, along with other changes, has accelerated regulatory approval for some drugs and devices, leading to a number of licensing deals, partnerships, and research collaborations in the country. The presence of many chemical manufacturing facilities in Japan also drives the demand for protective clothing in the country. Furthermore, this growing geriatric population base in Japan is also spurring the demand for more and better healthcare facilities which, in turn, is propelling the protective clothing market growth in the country. All these factors encourage market players to diversify their product portfolio in order to gain significant market share. For example, in 2019, Toray Industries developed Livmoa CL, a sterilized type of clothing that can be used in cleanrooms, in collaboration with the research and development center for cell therapy at the Foundation for Biomedical Research and Innovation (FBRI) at Kobe.


In the early stages of a coronavirus pandemic outbreak, the government had mandated the use of protective clothing to lower the risk of infection. All health workers who would have been working on the front lines to combat the pandemic were given PPE kit, which led to an increase in demand for protective kit, which later led to a scarcity of protective clothing products, most of which were unavailable.

Japan's protective clothing market has been segmented based on the type and end-user industry. By type, the market has been segmented as flame retardant apparel, chemical defending garments, cleanroom clothing, mechanical protective clothing, and limited general-use clothing. By the end-user industry, Japan's protective clothing market has been classified into oil and gas, chemical, pharmaceuticals, aerospace and defense, healthcare, and government.
