Extensive research carried out by the analysts at Technavio has shown that the global respiratory protection equipment (RPE) market will witness steady growth and will post a CAGR of close to 7% over the forecast period. The governments of various countries around the world have implemented stringent regulations on the work environment to ascertain the welfare and safety of employees, which is one of the major factors driving this market’s growth. For instance, OSHA international is charged with ensuring that a workplace is free from recognized hazards that can cause serious physical harm to workers in North America, Europe, Asia, and others. Moreover, the increasing number of accidents at the workplace and reports of unsafe working conditions has led governing bodies to ensure that the employers follow the regulations on work environment, employee safety, and the use of personal protective equipment (PPE). Furthermore, these agencies also conduct safety inspections at facilities to ensure the safety of employees. As these regulations are mandatory in various industries, employers need to follow these guidelines and will lead to the increasing adoption of RPE in the coming years.
In terms of geography, North America was the highest revenue-contributing region in the global RPE market and accounted for over 41% of the market shares during 2015. According to the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries conducted by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, fatal injuries increased by 17% in the mining sector, by 14% in the agriculture sector, and by 9% in the manufacturing sector. Moreover, the improvement in the economy of North America has boosted the construction industry in the region, which will also contribute to this market’s growth in the region.
The global RPE market is partially fragmented with the presence of several small- and medium-sized vendors. The increasing focus on R&D activities and investments by the market leaders ensure that product innovation is given priority. Although the top-five vendors cater to the majority of the market, most private labels sell PPE at a lower price in an attempt to use sales volumes to gain market share. This has led to the entry of several new vendors in this market. However, these new vendors are limited to producing equipment that requires low technical knowledge and expertise.
Key vendors in this market are -
Other prominent vendors in the market include Alpha Pro Tech, Bullard, Drägerwerk, Gentex, Grolls, Gurit, Intech Safety, Kimberly-Clark, Moldex-Metric, Ocenco, RPB Safety, RSG Safety, and Siyasebenza Manufacturing.
During 2015, the air-purifying respirators segment dominated the global RPE market and accounted for close to 57% of the revenue market shares. APR is used to prevent airborne contaminants such as toxic vapors, particles, and gasses from entering the respiratory system of the wearer. These systems are extensively used in environments with sufficient oxygen and low level of contamination. They are mostly used in oil and mining and chemical industries. The manufacturers are developing new types of respirators that are comfortable to wear for a longer period, which will boost this segment’s growth in the coming years.
According to the market research analysts, the healthcare segment will dominate the market and accounted for close to 26% of the market shares in terms of revenue. Healthcare personnel includes staff that provides housekeeping, clerical, dietary, housekeeping, security, and maintenance services. As the hospital staff is directly or indirectly exposed to pathogens that cause airborne transmissible diseases, it is mandatory for the hospitals to take the necessary safety precautions to protect the staff from exposure to these pathogens. Moreover, the increase in epidemics in the recent years, like Ebola will also lead to the augmented adoption of RPE by hospitals around the world.
