  • The global Personal Protective Equipment market is primarily driven by the adoption of stringent regulatory framework and safety regulations coupled with increasing awareness about the importance of workplace safety.

  • The International Labor Organization (ILO) estimates that some 2.3 million women and men around the world succumb to work-related accidents or diseases every year.

  • Worldwide, there are around 340 million occupational accidents and 160 million victims of work-related illnesses annually.

  • Furthermore, mandated policies by government agencies specifying the type of PPE required during various industrial processes are expected to boost the growth. For instance, strict standards by EU PPE Directive 89/686/EEC covers the marketing and manufacture to ensure the quality and durability of PPE to increase reliability and usage across end-user industries in Europe.

  • Additionally, the growing number of construction investments mainly in India, China, Saudi Arabia, and South Africa owing to high investments and available financial assistance is projected to stimulate demand for PPE.

  • However, the increased automation in end-use industries and the high price of specialized clothing may hinder market growth.

Personal Protective Equipment Market Segmentation Analysis

  • By Product, the global Personal Protective Equipment market is segmented into head protection, eye & face protection, hearing protection, protective clothing, respiratory protection, protective footwear, fall protection, hand protection, and others.

  • Hand protection PPE share holds the most significant revenue share owing to its high demand with the increasing number of hand and arm injuries in the workplace.

  • In a recent US Department of Labor study, of all injuries reported, injuries to the fingers and hands accounted for more than 23%, making them the highest in preventable injuries.

  • Hand injuries send more than one million workers to the emergency room each year in the US, and 70% of workers who experienced hand injuries were not wearing gloves, while the remaining 30% of injured workers did wear gloves, but the gloves were inadequate, damaged or the wrong type for the type of hazard present.

  • The protective clothing segment holds a significant market share and is sub-segmented into heat and flame protection, chemical defending, cleanroom clothing, mechanical protective clothing, and others.

  • Its high-performance characteristics and the rising awareness among employers to protect employees have resulted in the increased penetration and demand of the product in end-user industries.

  • By Application, the global Personal Protective Equipment market is segmented into construction, manufacturing, oil & gas, chemicals, food, pharmaceuticals, transportation, mining, and others.
