The Middle East and Africa’s powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR) market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.26% during the forecast period to reach US$34.147 million by 2027, from US$19.582 million in 2020.
PAPRs are respiratory protective devices that provide good air quality for the user by using a battery to control a blower that pumps clean air through a filtration system into a hood, mask, or helmet. When a face mask alone would not provide adequate protection against atmospheric contaminants, aid workers use PAPRs. Powered air purifying respirators, or PAPRs, are an essential element of laboratory personal protective equipment (PPE). PAPRs are used in a variety of respiratory applications, including BSL 3 environmental work, biological/chemical protection, and allergy protection. Powered Air-purifying Respiratory protection equipment refers to the type of devices worn by factory workers to avoid accidental inhalation of harmful particles found in the atmosphere. These devices aid in filtering the air and removing toxic substances, resulting in clean air to inhale. Respirators are commonly used by employees who work in low-oxygen environments.
The Growth Driver of the Middle East and Africa A Powered Air-Purifying Respirator Pollution is a major concern in the Middle East and Africa, a region with one of the highest concentrations of oil resources globally. Extensive oil drilling, but also traffic density, desertification, biodiversity loss, and conflicts all contribute to pollution's devastating impact on the environment and people's health. According to WHO, the level of air pollution in the region is expected to be second to none . In the Middle East and Africa, the average urban resident exhales air that contains more than ten times the number of contaminants considered safe. Ambient pollution in the Middle East and North Africa costs the average resident at least 60 days of illness over their lifetime and is responsible for 270,000 premature deaths in 2019. Furthermore, WHO demonstrated that exposing pregnant women to periods of elevated AAP increases the risk of stunted growth in children. This is expected to increase the growth of the powered air-purifying respirator market in the region. A major growth factor for the market of powered air purifying respirators expected to be the rising awareness of the clean, pollutant free breathing air quality and the growth of the population. According to the World Bank, the Middle East and Africa region has a population growth rate of 3.4%,. which is predicted to be the key growth factor in the region.
Because of the growing number of coronavirus cases, health professionals are at a greater risk of acquiring respiratory infections during patient consultations and operations, which is expected to drive up demand for these products. Strict regulatory standards for employee health and safety in high-risk activities are expected to drive industry growth throughout the forecast period. The World Health Organization recently shifted its focus to the possibility of coronavirus airborne transmission. During everyday activities like coughing and talking, an aerosolized route has been identified as a possible mode. The WHO issued a call for lightweight, highly protective PAPRs designed specifically for HCWs. which is expected to boost the market for powered air-purifying respirators in the region.
Over the projected period, the growth of powered air-purifying respirators is expected to increase substantially in the Middle East and Africa. A rising number of oil reserves, industrial mortalities, and increasing awareness about the safety of employees at work in the region's emerging economies, as well as the requirement for appropriate face shields, are expected to drive regional market growth over the forecasted period.
