A huge number of construction projects have been postponed or terminated as a result of the impact of the new coronavirus on the governments and enterprises that commissioned them. Furthermore, supply chain constraints of materials and equipment particularly raw materials such as steel from Asia are expected to create project delays in the coming years, limiting demand for face shields. Following the pandemic, the booming healthcare and pharmaceutical industries will drive market growth.

 U.S. face shields market size, by product, 2020 - 2030 (USD Million)

The recent Covid-19 pandemic outbreak is anticipated to fuel demand for these products in the region. The U.S is one of the world’s most adversely impacted countries by a coronavirus. The rapid spread of Covid-19 throughout the country has raised the demand for face shields, particularly in the healthcare sector, in order to minimize future disease transmission. Some key elements propelling the healthcare business in the U.S. are the country’s huge elderly population, advanced healthcare infrastructure, and comparatively greater disposable incomes of patients.

Fashion conglomerates, premium brands, and designers are also producing PPE, such as masks, face shields, to safeguard employees exposed to the COVID-19 virus. For example, in April 2020, Adidas, a German multinational producer of shoes, clothes, and accessories, joined with Carbon, a 3D printing business located in the U.S., to develop 3D printed face shields to aid with the pandemic crisis.

In the chemical industry, these products protect against chemicals, foreign substances, heat, and dust are used to protect personnel’s faces. Chemical production in the U. S. is predicted to decrease by 9.3% by the end of 2020 and grow by 12.3% in 2021, according to the American Chemistry Council (ACC). This is linked to a 6% drop in the country’s economic growth as a result of the widespread Covid-19 outbreak.

Oil and gas wells can expose workers to hydrogen sulfide gas and crystalline silica, which can cause silicosis. Hence, the demand for PPE in the oil and gas industry is expected to increase significantly over the coming years as the workers are exposed to molten metal, flying particles, or potentially harmful light radiation.

Workers in oil and gas wells can be exposed to crystalline silica and hydrogen sulfide gas, both of which can lead to silicosis. As a result, the need for PPE in the oil and gas industry is anticipated to grow significantly over the next several years as employees are exposed to hot metal, flying debris, and potentially dangerous light radiation.

Regional Insights

North America accounted for 30.5% of the global revenue share in 2021. Rising healthcare expenditure, an aging population, and more awareness of healthcare-acquired illnesses among medical personnel are expected to have a favorable influence on the market. Growing demand for dairy and meat products is projected to drive innovation in the manufacturing and packaging industries. Cleaning, operating, and handling machinery and surfactants are common actions in these sectors. Various processing and packaging concerns, such as bacterial infection, are likely to boost demand for PPEs such as hand protection, face shields, and breathing protection. Europe’s expanding automotive and industrial industries are likely to boost market growth throughout the forecast period.

Asia Pacific led the market and accounted for 19.7% of the global revenue share in 2021. The rising number of occupational fatalities, coupled with rising face shields requirements, with the need for high durability mechanical wear resistance, and high utility in the majority of core industries such as oil and gas, refining, metal manufacturing, and automotive, is expected to drive market growth in the Asia Pacific segment over the forecast period.

Face Shields Market Trends by Region

The Middle East’s expanding oil and gas industry is predicted to increase demand throughout the forecast period. Increased investment in the construction and oil and gas industries is projected to boost regional industrial growth.
