March 2021 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Personal Protective Equipment Market Growth & Trends

The global personal protective equipment market size is expected to reach USD 112.07 billion by 2028, registering a CAGR of 7.3% over the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The upgrading of the public healthcare system and infrastructure coupled with investments in new facilities in developing economies is anticipated to drive the product demand over the coming years.

The stringent regulations imposed by the U.S. Department of Labor and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in the country have a positive impact on product demand from the end-use industries. In addition, the growing employee awareness related to personal safety has a significant influence on the increased penetration of personal protective equipment (PPE) in the country.

Constant innovations, in terms of production, such as the development of lighter, comfortable industrial protective equipment using premium-quality fabric, are projected to propel market growth. High demand for PPE, which combines safety with improved aesthetics and technological innovation, is further estimated to augment market growth.

Various countries implemented Covid-19 related acts, such as the Families First Coronavirus Response Act by the U.S., for protecting public health workers, establishing free testing, providing paid leaves, and important benefits to children and families in 2020 to curb the spread of the virus. Increasing domestic production coupled with restraints on imports and exports of PPE surged the product demand in 2020.
