The protective clothing market is mainly driven by government regulations for the protection of workers in hazardous environments and by the rapid industrialization in emerging economies such as Asia-Pacific and Latin America. High awareness on part of the employer for worker safety is also contributing to market growth. Long-term growth drivers include use of advanced fabrics such as phase change materials for increasing the functionality of protective clothing, and simultaneously making it more comfortable to wear.
