Pune, May 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global personal protective equipment market size is projected to reach USD 85.72 billion by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.3% during the forecast period. Exponential growth in COVID-19 cases worldwide will spike the demand for PPE, states Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis by Product (Head Protection, Eye & Face Protection, Hearing Protection, Protective Clothing, Respiratory Protection, Fall Protection Protective Footwear, Hand Protection, and Others), By Application (Construction, Manufacturing, Oil & Gas, Chemical, Food, Pharmaceutical, Transportation, and Others) and Regional Forecast, 2019-2026”.

According to Johns Hopkins University in the US, the number of confirmed coronavirus cases worldwide is inching towards 5 million, with more than 300,000 deaths. The situation is worsening as the number of cases among frontline healthcare workers is also steadily. The International Council of Nurses (ICN) estimates that around 90,000 health workers have been infected by the coronavirus and over 260 nurses have died because of the pandemic. This crisis, therefore, has heightened the need for PPE such as gowns, face masks, and goggles, with World Health Organization having urged governments and manufacturers in February 2020 to ramp up their PPE production by 40% to meet the imminent demand. As the spread of COVID-19 intensifies, the demand for PPE is likely to remain sky-high for 2020.

Market Drivers:

Rising Fatalities in the Construction Sector to Favor Market Growth

One of most prominent factors driving the personal protective equipment market growth is the rising number of accidents and deaths of workers at construction sites. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) of the US Department of Labor, on average 20% of worker deaths in the US happen in the construction sector annually. Moreover, the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimated that roughly 47% of the fatal work injuries reported in 2018 occurred among construction workers. These workers have to work in extremely hazardous environments and therefore require adequate and efficient protection equipment to ensure their safety while working. Thus, rising construction activities worldwide will fuel the demand for PPE and propel the market growth.

PPE Industry Regional Analysis:

Growing Concern for Occupational Safety to Catalyze the Market in North America

With a market size of USD 17.86 billion in 2019, North America is poised to command the personal protective equipment market share in the coming years. This dominance will be premised on the growing awareness regarding safety of workers in dangerous settings such as construction sites. In addition to this, the skyrocketing number of COVID-19 cases in the US has spurred the government to enhance production of PPE to protect frontline health workers in the country.

In Europe, stringent regulations governing the quality standards of personal protective equipment for workers will mainly drive the market. Similar to the US, high number of coronavirus infections will create wide sales opportunities in Europe for market players. The market in Asia-Pacific will be propelled by rapid industrialization and a speedily expanding construction sector in India and China.
