Global Respiratory Protective Equipment Market to Grow at 4.1% During 2022-2027, Bolstered by Onset of COVID-19

Published on Jul 03, 2020

IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “Respiratory Protective Equipment Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global respiratory protective equipment market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.1% during 2022-2027. Respiratory protective equipment (RPE) are wearable devices used to protect individuals from inhaling hazardous substances. They comprise visors, hoods, helmets, filtering devices, supplied-air respirators, escape/airline respirators, half/full mask respirators and breathing apparatus. They either cover the nose and mouth or the entire face to filter out contaminants. Nowadays, respiratory protective equipment is commonly utilized in the mining, chemical, oil and gas, healthcare, construction and petrochemical industries to ensure maximum protection against hazards and accidents. 

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.

Global Respiratory Protective Equipment Market Trends:

The onset of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has escalated the demand for personal protective equipment (PPE), such as masks, gloves, respirators and protective clothing. Besides this, the rising instances of respiratory or infectious diseases, such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), Ebola Virus Disease (EVD), and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), are also contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, governments of different countries have implemented stringent policies regarding promoting occupational safety and health standards. This has also created awareness among workers about the importance of workplace safety, thereby utilizing RPE to prevent inhalation of harmful chemicals, gases and radiological and nuclear material. Moreover, the introduction of RPE integrated with auto-darkening filters (ADF) and sensors helps minimize eye damage and offer protection from fumes.
