Market outlook of foot protective equipment

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global foot protective equipment (FPE) market to grow at a rate of 7% during the forecast period. The manufacturing and construction industry in the APAC region is undergoing radical upgradation in terms of work safety, thereby driving the demand for FPE over the forecast period.

The increased focus by the European Commission on the compliance with regulations and legislations is expected to drive the growth of the FPE market. Various organizations have been appointed to supervise the proper implementation of these directives such as the FIOH, the Norwegian Industrial Safety and Security Organization, and the Danish Association of Occupational Health and Safety Consultants. With these organizations working for safer workplaces, the FPE market is expected to benefit from stringent workplace safety regulations.
