Medical Protective Clothing Market Growth & Trends
The global medical protective clothing market size is expected to reach USD 661.0 million by 2027, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., expanding at a CAGR of 7.4% from 2020 to 2027. Increasing demand for medical protective clothing to ensure employees’ safety during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is expected to boost market growth.
Stringent government regulations pertaining to employee safety are forcing employers to comply with the industry standards, thereby augmenting the product demand. Furthermore, shifting customer preference towards better performing, comfortable, and stylish clothing is driving the companies to invest significantly in research & development activities.
Increasing number of COVID-19 cases in the economies, including Italy, China, and U.S., coupled with insufficient supply of protective kits, is likely to drive product demand. Implementation of the Defense Production Act (DPA) by U.S. has resulted in other apparel manufacturers focusing on the production of protective clothing, thereby complementing growth.
Fashion conglomerates, luxury labels, and designers are engaged in the production of protective clothing for providing protection to the personnel exposed to the COVID-19 virus. In addition, various small-scale companies are involved in providing alternative solutions, such as disposable or reusable laboratory coats and aprons with long sleeves and snaps or buttons for fastening.
