According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Personal Protective Equipment Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global personal protective equipment market reached a value of US$ 63.0 Billion in 2021. Personal protective equipment (PPE) refers to a gear that is generally utilized in medical settings to aid in minimizing the chances of contracting infections. It acts as a barrier between the body and infectious materials, including bacterial and viral contaminants. PPE mainly includes various wearable gears, such as glasses, gloves, shoes, muffs or earplugs, respirators, helmets, vests or full bodysuits. These gears are commonly manufactured using hard plastics, laminates and nonwoven materials that differ on the basis of varying levels of resistance to penetration, permeation and degradation by hazardous substances. Along with this, PPE is also extensively used for blocking the transmission of contaminants from respiratory and blood secretions.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
