“Personal protective equipment market expected to grow at CAGR of 6.5% during forecast period”
The personal protective equipment market is expected to reach USD 58.34 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2017 to 2022. The growth is primarily due to the stringent government regulations regarding the use of personal protective equipment, coupled with the increasing awareness about the importance of work safety. However, increased automation in end-use industries and high price of specialized protective clothing are restraining the growth of the market.

“Hands & arm protection segment expected to be the largest type segment of the personal protective equipment market”
Based on type, the hands & arm protection segment is expected to be the largest type segment of the global personal protective equipment market during 2017 to 2022. Hands & arm protection equipment are the most widely used personal protective equipment due to their widespread applications. Moreover, the rising demand from the construction and manufacturing industries is also fueling the growth of this segment.

“Manufacturing anticipated to be the largest end-use industry segment of the personal protective equipment market during the forecast period”
Manufacturing is expected to be the largest end-use industry segment of the personal protective equipment market during 2017 to 2022. The rising demand for personal protective equipment in production of chemicals, electronics, pulp & paper, metal fabrication, steel, wood, and glass is driving this segment. Moreover, developing countries such as India and China are witnessing rapid infrastructure growth. This increases employment in the manufacturing sector, and, in turn, triggers the demand for personal protective equipment in the manufacturing industry.

“Asia Pacific projected to be the fastest-growing personal protective equipment market during the forecast period”
The Asia Pacific region is the fastest-growing personal protective equipment market. Economic development and substantial investments in industries such as manufacturing, transportation, and construction are fueling the growth of the personal protective equipment market. With economic contraction and saturation in the European and North American markets, the demand is shifting to the Asia-Pacific region.
