Global safety goggles and glasses market forecast

According to the safety goggles and glasses industry analysis, our analysts at Technavio has shown that the safety goggles and glasses market will grow at a steady pace and will post a moderate CAGR of close to 4% over the forecast period.  The safety goggles and glasses market is characterized by continuous innovations, the focus of which is shifting from performance to the aesthetic appeal of the safety glass. As vendors have achieved optimum performance standards set by the market, they are now focusing on features and styling to expand their product portfolios. The increasing focus on the aesthetic appeal of the safety goggles will drive this market’s growth in the coming years.

The augmented demand for safety glasses with anti-fog functionality is one of the emerging safety goggles and glasses market trends spurring the growth prospects for this market during the predicted period. Lenses fog easily when the outside temperature is lower than the body temperature, leading to obscure vision. This defeats the purpose of wearing protective eyewear, forcing the wearer to remove the lens to clean them. Removing the lenses, even for a short period, makes the wearer vulnerable to eye injuries due to non-compliance. This has led to the rising demand and adoption for safety goggles with anti-fog coatings. Vendors in the market offer anti-fog products that use different modes of action to prevent fogging of lenses. For instance, vendors, including 3M, offer safety goggles and glasses that use lenses with permanently-bonded anti-fog coatings. These advanced coatings provide a long-lasting and clear view to the wearer.
