The Western European fall protection market generated revenue of €343.5 million in 2016, and is expected to reach €412.2 million in 2021. Wind energy, transportation, and utilities are expected to experience high market growth due to adoption of sophisticated products and growing penetration. On the other hand, construction and general industrial are expected to offer high potential for growth due to existing low compliance in these verticals coupled with stringent enforcement of regulations.

The fall protection market is expected to offer high growth when compared to other PPE product segments. This is because of growing awareness and stringent enforcement of safety regulations across Western Europe. Fall protection installed systems and fall protection services are expected to offer high growth opportunities as their penetration in utilities, telecom, and transportation industries is expected to increase.

Dearth for industry specific innovation in access systems and monorails and guardrails segments is expected to restrain market revenues. Britain’s exit from the European Union has temporarily resulted in higher product prices, however, this is not expected to restrain adoption as fall protection is considered highly essential with increasing customer and end-user awareness. With uptake of automation in many industry verticals, the need for fall protection is expected to deter during the long term of the forecast period.
