The global personal protective equipment market was worth US$ 46.7 Billion in 2018. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is a collective term used for wearable equipment and gear that protects users against various potential occupational hazards. It primarily includes equipment for the protection of face, eyes, ears, head and feet. According to various government agencies, it is mandatory for workers to wear puncture-resistant safety boots with slip-resistant soles and hard hats to ensure maximum protection against hazards and accidents. As a result, PPE finds extensive application in labor-oriented industries such as chemical, oil and gas, construction and pharmaceutical, wherein injuries can result from contact with physical, chemical, mechanical and radioactive substances.
Rapid industrialization is one of the key factors contributing to the market growth. It has led to an increase in the construction activities across the globe. However, there exists a severe lack in terms of safety measures at construction sites, which has resulted in frequent cases of occupational hazards worldwide, leading to a loss of valuable workforce and time. Consequently, there has been a rise in the awareness of personal and occupational safety among workers and employers to ensure maximum protection at the workplace. Owing to these factors, PPE is now widely incorporated in both developed and emerging economies. Furthermore, various product innovations such as the introduction of smart wearables with sensors that can identify patterns and the presence of hazardous elements in a mine or an oil rig are also catalyzing the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach a value of US$ 68.1 Billion by 2024, registering a CAGR of 6.5% during 2019-2024.
