As per the report, the market pertaining to the Protective Clothing Market is expected to grow at a steady pace.           

The protective clothing demand is increasing due to expanding manufacturing and other industrial sectors around the world that require specific protection equipment for worker's security. The oil and gas industry poses a high risk of human lives as well as the environment and is potentially one of the most hazardous industry sectors around the globe that has one of the most thorough safety programs. The combination of powerful equipment, flammable chemicals, and processes that are used to being under high pressure can lead to hazardous and even deadly incidents. Therefore, a high level of protective clothing is required in such an industry. Growing oil and gas industry around the world and rising occupational accidents in the industry is expected to be the driving factor for the growth of the market during the forecast period. In addition, growing demand for workplace safety in the oil and gas industry in various parts of the globe is further anticipated to propel the demand for protective clothing in the coming years. Furthermore, growing stringent industry standards for workers' safety in the oil and gas industry is anticipated to boost the demand over the forecast period. For instance, some of applicable OSHA regulatory requirements, as well as industry standards for companies involved in oil and gas, are OSHA’s General Industry standards (29 CFR 1910), OSHA’s Construction standards (29CFR 1926) and General Duty Clause of the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act which overview the safety of oil and gas projects. 

The market for protective apparels will continue to rise in the upcoming years due to the requirement at the time of high-infection scenarios such as the previous Ebola outbreak. In the present scenario, the COVID-19 outbreak has created an emergency at the international level, hence, the demand for these protective clothing is at its peak for all the healthcare workers attending the suspected or confirmed COVID-19 patients. The market is sub-segmented into disposable staff apparel and disposable towels and bedding. Out of the two, disposable staff apparel is estimated to hold a significant share followed by disposable towels and bedding during the forecast period. Additionally, with the growing geriatric population in various developed economies around the world, the market is further poised to strengthen in the forecast period. For example, the population in the United States is projected to surge from 7.9% in 2010 to 17% in 2020 (source: US Census Bureau).

Asia Pacific region has been known for its manufacturing and development of high-tech machinery and robotics especially in the field of automotive and aviation. Moreover, China’s chemical industry also leads globally regarding sales and export. These industries are also projected to grow during the forecast period on account of the rising demand for automotive, aviation, and chemical products worldwide which will further boost the demand for protective clothing. In the automotive and aviation industry, protective clothing is used to protect workers from exposure to specialty coatings. The chemical industry requires protecting clothing to protect workers from exposure to toxic fumes, making it a necessary protective gear in these industries, leading to a direct increase in the demand for protective gear with growth in these industries. In developed regions like Europe, there is also a rise in the cases of lung cancers due to the inhalation of asbestos in the working environment. Lung disease deaths linked to past exposure at work amounts to about 12,000, and 20,000 new or worsened self-reported cases are made every year. According to the Health and Safety Executive, the number of cases of mesothelioma in Great Britain has been on the rise since 1980 and is projected to reach a death toll of 2,500 per year by 2020. For this, the UK government has been striving to achieve better work safety for the employees. The British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF) joined hands with Health and Safety Executive to make an accreditation scheme to check the competency of face-piece fitters for respirators.
