Overview of the global personal protective equipment (PPE) market for women

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global PPE market for women will grow steadily during the forecast period and post a CAGR of more than 8% by 2021. This market research analysis identifies the cost and functionality trade off as one of the primary growth factors for this market. Many industries require the wearers to wear various PPEs in response to various types of hazards which cannot be used in combination as it will defeat the purpose of the safety equipment. It has been observed that the majority injuries are caused due to incorrect PPEs and consequently the governments have introduced regulation that mandates employers to provide safety equipment. Subsequently the employers should ensure product quality on safety and functionality while not exceeding the cost. Women workers lack access to PPE as the manufacturers focus more on male workers though this view is currently shifting.

The market research report identifies the integration of e-commerce channels for the procurement of PPE for women as one of the primary trends behind the growth of this market. The B2B market provides scope for the growth of the market and contributes to a significant number of sales every year. Additionally, the online retailers also earn higher profits at relatively lower prices. As a result, the vendors in the market will start focusing on the e-commerce sector especially in the developed and developing countries by forming partnerships with the leading retailers.
