By Product Type, End-use Industry and
Geography - Trends and Forecast to
Personal protective equipment (PPE) refers to protective helmets, clothing, footwear,
goggles, or other equipment that are designed to protect the wearer’s body from
infection or injury. These aid in protecting the body against high volt electric current,
certain chemicals, excessive heat, biohazards, and others. Personal protective
equipment can be used for various purposes such as occupational safety, sports, and
for recreational activities.
Increasing awareness regarding the importance of occupational safety and stringent
regulatory framework related to it are major drivers for growth of the personal protective
equipment market. For instance, the European Union developed directives to improve
safety and health at work and to ensure the quality of PPE is maintained. The directive
covers marketing and manufacturing of personal protective equipment and must comply
with basic safety and health requirements. However, low awareness about the use of
personal protective equipment is anticipated to restrain growth of this market. For
instance, according to National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), 2014,
Nigeria and South Africa reported poor usage of PPE, where only 35.9% of welders in
Nigeria use PPE.
