Global Hazmat Suit Market - 2022-2029
Hazmat suit market size was valued at US$ xx million in 2021 and is estimated to reach US$ XX million by 2029, growing at a CAGR of x% during the forecast period (2022-2029).
The hazmat suit is personal protective equipment (PPE) designed for the purpose to protect the person from hazardous materials or chemical, radioactive, and biological agents while working in a field such as industrial work. It is a whole body covering garment that contains breathing facilities to provide a continuous supply of breathable air to the person.
The hazmat suit market growth is driven by the rise in prevalence of different diseases such as cancer, neurological disorders such as alzimers disease, rising adoption of Hazmat Suit s for diagnosis of diseases, increase in the geriatric population, and research activities.
The growing product development is expected to drive the market growth
From healthcare to the emergency worker in the industry of chemical and biological incidence, a hazmat suit has a different meaning between life and death. The article published in Polymers journal in April 2022, mentioned that the development of protective clothing is essential nowadays, as increased the level of harmful biological risk mainly for military forces and civilians. The primary aim of barrier textiles is to protect the user or person against external hazards such as BWAs while maintaining safety and comfort against the skin. There are different types of traditional biological protection available such as an impermeable membrane (A), an air-permeable shell layer (B), a semipermeable shell layer (C), and a selectively permeable membrane (D). While, mainly the available protective clothing systems depend upon passive protection, characterizing as a full barrier against vapors, air, and liquids, as in hazardous materials (HAZMAT) suits. Those materials used for designing the suits are chemically or mechanically insensitive to the environment to meet performance conditions even in worst-case events.
In addition, the development of new protective clothing with different features can fight against hazardous materials. For instance, in May 2022, Kappler and Lakeland collaborated to expand high-level hazmat chemical worker protection in India. This collaboration strengthens the competitiveness in the United States region.
The psychological reactions will hamper the growth of the market
However, when the user will wear the hazmat suit there is a lack of communication and understanding, lack of information exchange, protective clothing and breathing apparatus specifically can cause a variety of psycho-physiological effects, such as sweating, overheating, respiratory difficulty, escalating into hyperventilation and acute psychological reactions such as anxiety, claustrophobia, and panic. These are limiting the market growth worldwide.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
The appearance of COVID-19 considerably impacted the global hazmat suit market. In 2020, the WHO suggested the regular use of personal protective equipment (PPE) in the health care sector and home care settings, to prevent the spread of infection in the pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggested that healthcare personnel should wear a clean isolation gown while entering into patient room or area and also to wear before performing the patient care in to protect from the infection. Moreover, the market players expanded their production and quick delivery of protection kits in the pandemic. For instance, in March 2020, Dupont expanded their production and delivery of its Tyvek gowns and coveralls for healthcare workers and also, developed a limited run protective fabric especifically for the COVID-19 pandemic to meet growing demand in the market.
On the other hand, due to shutdown of many industries in pandemic there is disruption of the global supply chain and faced the severe shortages of PPE in the market. To meet the shortage of hazmat suit that is protective equipment the many governments start their local production. For instance, in March 2020, India started local production of hazmat suits for healthcare workers as faced supply interupptions in coronavirus outbreak. The South India Textiles research association (SITRA) and two more manufactureres were invited to meet the requiment of the government. Overall, the COVID-19 has positive impact on the hazmat suit market.
The hazardous materials segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2022-2029)
The hazardous materials segment is expected to boost the market over the period of the forecast. As per the Hazardous Waste statistics 2022, approximately 13 tons of hazardous waste is generated every second globally. Each year, 400 million tons of hazardous waste are generated.
