Industrial Protective Clothing : A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Industrial facilities are often characterized by hazardous work environments that are prone to cause injuries and infections to employees. Industrial protective clothing including garments, protects employees from undue exposure to hazardous elements such as heat, flame, extreme cold, toxic chemical agents, chemical splashes, radiation, bullets, bacteria and viruses, among others. Rising instances of workplace accidents involving life-threatening injuries and fatalities have been driving strong demand for industrial protective clothing in recent years. The market is also driven by stringent occupational safety regulations that mandate employers to provide suitable protective equipment and clothing for ensuring worker safety. The high costs associated with workplace accidents such as employee compensation, medical expenditure and opportunity cost of lost productive hours is resulting in companies making proactive investments in personal protective equipment.

Given the market’s sensitivity to broad economic health and employment rates, global sales of industrial protective clothing declined during the years 2012 & 2013. The European debt crisis, uncertainty over debt ceiling in the United States, and a temporary deceleration in economic growth in developing markets affected vital end-use industries such as, manufacturing, steel, chemicals, petrochemicals, automotive, construction and energy generation, among others. Demand currently is beginning to recover with the global economy showing signs of improvement as evidenced by the growth in GDP and manufacturing PMI data. Future growth in the market will continue to benefit from the critical focus shed on personnel safety by manufacturing firms, heavy industries and processing companies. The growing need for replacements will also help boost market prospects in the coming years.

As stated by the new market research report on Industrial Protective Clothing, Europe represents the largest regional market worldwide. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 9.8% over the analysis period.
