According to researchers at NanoMarkets, this production trend makes ESD an ever-growing and increasingly dangerous element that must be neutralized in manufacturing facilities, technology offices, and other workplaces.

Eagle Mat and Floor Products announces a special promotion on all anti-static and static dissipative matting to help businesses neutralize the risk of electrostatic discharge (ESD) in the workplace. Through the month of May, all online orders receive free shipping as well as guaranteed lowest pricing on all ESD protection products.
Anti-static mats and static dissipative matting are an integral piece of the 21st century workplace. Recent studies indicate that more electrical equipment leads to corresponding increases in electrostatic discharge (ESD). As an uncontrolled flow of electricity between two objects, ESD has the potential to injure employees, damage electrical equipment, and cause serious setbacks to business operations. Anti-static and dissipative mats effectively prevent these issues, acting as a medium through which ESD is safely channeled and grounded.
The risk of ESD increases as technology evolves, according to a report issued by NanoMarkets LC. A leader in research and analysis for emerging energy and technology markets, NanoMarkets details these findings in a report titled “Markets for ESD and Antistatic Protection Materials and Product in Electronics 2012.” According to the report, the market for anti-static matting, static dissipative mats, and other ESD protection products may experience a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CGAR) of up to 13%. By 2019, the research firm estimates total market value to grow as large as $3.4 billion.
A key driver towards the growing market for ESD protection products is the similarly growing production of electronics, which are becoming smaller and more powerful. According to researchers at NanoMarkets, this production trend makes ESD an ever-growing and increasingly dangerous element that must be neutralized in manufacturing facilities, technology offices, and other workplaces.
In addition to regular facility maintenance and employee training, safety consultants at Eagle Mat and Floor Products recommend business owners conduct a thorough risk assessment to better understand the danger that ESD may pose to employees, electrical equipment, and larger business objectives and goals. Following risk assessment, business owners are invited to shop ANSI/ASTM compliant anti-static and static dissipative matting products on Eaglemat.com. Throughout the month of May, all online orders receive free shipping and guaranteed low pricing.
