The South American powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR) market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.26% during the forecast period to reach US$76.808 million by 2027, up from US$50.520 million in 2020.
Doctors and nurses use powered air purifying respirators when treating infectious disease cases. A PAPR draws heavily contaminated surrounding air into an inlet, through which a blower forces air through filter cartridges, purifying the air, and directing it back into the dedicated breathing zone of the user wearing it. Many jobs require safety gear due to various types of air-bone illnesses and industrial emissions. The powered air-purifying respirator is a self-contained respiratory apparatus that is designed to protect against harmful toxins such as bacteria, viruses, and even dust particles. It is a primary consideration that must be kept at the forefront of safety precautions at work. The powered air-purifying respirator has a filter efficiency of 99.97%. It is a user-friendly device that is designed to be reused and has a one-time investment cost. Its sizes are consistent because it fits people of all sizes. Its advantages include the ability to accommodate people with facial inconsistencies and men with facial hair. With the increasing number of Corona virus cases, pollution, poor air quality, and diseases related to respiration in the region, the South American Powered Air Purifying Respirators market is expected to grow. According to the global health data exchange, South America in 2019 has seen 19,826 deaths due to air pollution, which consists of industrial pollution or pollution by emissions. As per health data.org 2019, accounts for a large number of deaths due to air pollution, which makes air pollution the 4th leading cause of death in the world, causing 7 million deaths globally. The South American Powered Air Purifying Respirators are expected to grow due to increased awareness and government initiatives in the field to improve the situation.
It is anticipated that the growth of powered air purifying respirators could be the onset of viruses which are biological in nature, like COVID-19, Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, or ZIKA. The countermeasures taken by the healthcare industry towards the safety of medical professionals are expected to drive the powered air purifying respirator market over the projected period. Healthcare respiratory protection is necessary for medical providers who have been highly linked to the novel coronavirus. Possible options, such as surgery masks and other kinds of face shield respirators, such as powered air purifying respirators and half-mask respiratory protection, are being used if these safeguards are not available. This is anticipated to drive the market for powered air purifying respirators in the health sector.
According to the air quality guidelines of WHO, the Index of Pollutants has to be adapted by region to improve the quality of air for breathing.
The PAPR are large and heavy devices that are neither user- nor patient-friendly, making home use of the devices difficult, which is expected to be one of the market's biggest challenges. The device's maintenance costs are also expected to be a roadblock to the market for powered air-purifying respirators for the foreseen period
The global epidemic is believed to have a positive impact on the South American PAPR market. Peru had the highest mortality rate during the period, making the region one of the most badly affected by the pandemic. Due to the outbreak, the government took initiatives to provide safe practices to medical practitioners at work as they are at greater risk of acquiring the infectious disease due to their immediate contact with COVID 19 patients, which is expected to increase the market demand in the region for powered air-purifying respirators.
South America is expected to see the most growth in the powered air purifying respirator market. According to WHO, Brazil has one of the highest caseloads of COVID-19, making it one of the most severely affected regions in the world. The propagation of the coronavirus is anticipated to drive growth in the powered air purifying respirator market in South America over the foreseen period. Local authorities are expected to invest more money in healthcare technology in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. This is expected to have a positive effect on the development of the South American powered air purifying respirator market.
