October 2021 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Respiratory Protective Equipment Market Growth & Trends

The global respiratory protective equipment market size is expected to reach USD 14.46 billion by 2028, registering a CAGR of 7.7% over the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Favorable occupational safety regulations, the emergence of infectious biological hazards, and rising incidences of mesothelioma disease are expected to boost the demand for respiratory protective equipment (RPE). The rising cases of COVID-19 resulted in the shortages of N95 masks and other particle filtering respirator masks leading to hoarding and panic buying. Export bans, trade restrictions, and government regulations led to increased prices, which is expected to augment the market growth.

Occupational safety regulations laid out by agencies, such as Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), European Committee for Standardization (CEN), and ISO, have resulted in a favorable environment for the adoption of RPE. Furthermore, the invoking of certain laws, such as the Defense Production Act, during the pandemic is expected to boost the market growth. Key players in the industry are developing products with distinctive features, such as powered air-purifying respirators with automatic filters to gain dominance in the global market. For instance, LG Electronics launched its face mask, which is a combination of electronic fans and HEPA filters making it an air purifier.
