According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Personal Protective Equipment Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028," the global personal protective equipment market size reached US$ 69.3 Billion in 2022. Personal protective equipment (PPE) refers to clothing and wearable gear that protect users from various potential hazards. It includes gloves, goggles, face shields, masks, respirators, hard hats, earplugs, and safety shoes. They are manufactured using various lightweight, durable, and chemical-resistant raw materials, such as rubbers, plastics, polymers, metals, nylon, and polyester. PPE is widely used for various activities, such as mining, oil and gas drilling, welding, construction, manufacturing, and food processing. They are also used in healthcare facilities, research laboratories, and during natural disasters and emergencies. PPE aids in ensuring enhanced protection against accidents, reducing the risk of respiratory illness and injuries, and building a safer and more secure work environment.
Personal Protective Equipment Market Trends:
The significant growth in the construction industry is one of the primary factors supporting market growth. PPE is widely used during construction activities to protect workers from heat, chemicals, fire, dust, falling objects, electrical hazards, and sharp materials. In addition to this, the increasing focus on worker safety among organizations is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the widespread product utilization in the healthcare industry to protect medical professionals from infectious diseases, bloodborne pathogens, and other biological hazards is providing an impetus to the market growth. Additionally, the introduction of smart PPEs that are equipped with sensors, communication devices, and software to detect potential collisions and falling objects and provide real-time monitoring of body vitals and safety parameters is positively influencing the market growth. Apart from this, the recent development of advanced PPEs that are breathable, lightweight, and manufactured using nanomaterials, which provide virus-filtering, anti-microbial, and self-cleaning capabilities, is favoring the market growth. Moreover, the implementation of stringent government regulations to mandate the utilization of PPE in hazardous environments to promote worker safety is creating a positive outlook for the market. Other factors, including rapid industrialization activities, easy product availability across e-commerce platforms, the widespread utilization of biodegradable and sustainable materials to manufacture PPE, increasing investment in the research and development (R&D) of new products, and growing incidences of workplace injuries, are anticipated to drive the market growth. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market value is expected to reach US$ 115.0 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 8.7% during 2023-2028.
