The North American powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR)) market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.59% during the forecast period to reach US$520.590 million by 2027, from US$274.143 million in 2020.
Workers in hazardous environments, such as industrial production, construction, and healthcare, require filtered air to breathe. A PAPR device is used for welders to avoid inhaling harmful welding toxic gases or vapours produced by welding metals. A welding PAPR system would include a welding headgear with a battery-powered blower that delivers purified air under high pressures. The powered air-purifying respirator has 99.97% filter efficiency. It is a user-friendly device that is made for reuse and requires a one-time investment. Its sizes do not vary because it is suitable for all sizes. Its positive features include accommodating people with facial inconsistencies and men with facial hair. With increasing pollution, population, COVIDcases, and respiratory illnesses in the region, the North American Powered Air Purifying Respirators market is expected to grow. According to global health data exchange, North America in 2019 has seen a death rate of 10.07% due to air pollution, causing awareness among the people of the safety measures available owing to the growth of the market for powered air purifying respirators.
Factors Influencing the Growth of Powered Air-Purifying Respirators in North AmericaThe emergence of biological viruses such as MERS, Novel Coronavirus, Zika, and SARS, and the sudden transition in the healthcare sector toward proactive measures, are projected to drive the market for powered air purifying respirators over the forecast period. Healthcare providers who have been heavily exposed to the novel coronavirus are supposed to wear medical respiratory protection. In the event that these protection measures are not available, alternative solutions such as surgical facemasks and other categories of filtered face shield respirators, such as powered air purifying respirators and elastomeric half-mask respirators, are used. During the COVID-19 pandemic, this is expected to drive the market for power air purifying respirators in the health sector.
Powerful air purifying respirators are cumbersome devices that are not user-friendly or patient friendly, making it difficult to use the device at home, which is expected to be one of the major challenges the market will face. The cost of maintaining the device is also expected to be a barrier to the market for powered air-purifying respirators.
The pandemic is expected to have a positive impact on the North American powered air purifying respirator market as it is one of the worst hit regions by the pandemic due to government initiatives to provide safety measures to healthcare professionals at work as they are at high risk of contracting the infectious disease due to their direct contact with COVID-19 contracted patients. It was advised to wear a full-face shield mask for them, which is expected to increase the market for PAPR in the region.
The powered air purifying respirator market is expected to be led by the North American region. COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on North America, making it one of the most affected regions globally, as stated by WHO. The USA alone is seeing 24,062.44 confirmed cases per 100,000 population, which is approximately a 16% rise in cases of coronavirus. The spread of the coronavirus in the region is expected to result in an increase in demand for powered air purifying respirators in North America over the forecast period. Following the COVID-19 pandemic, regional governments are expected to invest more heavily in medical infrastructure. This is anticipated to have a positive impact on the growth of the North American powered air purifying respirator market.
