Drivers & Restraints-

Rising Cases of Workplace Hazards Worldwide to Augment Growth

The rising number of ongoing and planned construction and infrastructure projects, especially in India, China, and the U.S. is anticipated to propel the personal protective equipment market growth in the near future. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), in 2019, approximately 5,333 workers died on job. Also, on average, around 15 deaths took place every day in the same year. Hence, the need to provide construction workers with protective shoes or boots with slip or puncture-resistant soles is set to surge rapidly. At the same time, regulatory bodies of various countries are implementing strict norms to protect workers against falls, electrocution, trench cave-ins, and toxic materials. However, the lack of awareness of workplace hazards may hamper the demand for these equipments.

Regional Insights-

Increasing Expenditure in Healthcare Sector to Help North America Dominate

Geographically, North America earned USD 42,805.7 million in 2020 in terms of revenue and is likely to remain at the forefront. The rising government expenditure in the healthcare and medical sectors is expected to drive growth. Besides, the surging awareness of manufacturers and workers about crucial occupational safety measures is set to aid growth.

In Europe, the market would remain in the second position throughout the forthcoming years because of the favorable government norms, such as the EU Directive 2016/425. The regulation aims to ensure quality standards of PPE available in the European market. Asia Pacific, on the other hand, is likely to showcase significant growth backed by the rapid industrialization in China, Vietnam, and India.
