Impact of Industrial Automation on the Global Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Market
Industrial automation is expected to have a low negative impact on the overall PPE market during the forecast period, which will increase steadily and have a more visible impact in approximately years time.
The degree of impact will vary across regions, industries, and PPE segments; however, in general, manufacturing is currently the most automated industrial sector. Transportation and storage remains the fastest growing area for industrial automation, which is expected to have a moderate negative impact on PPE usage in this industry.
In general, automation in industries of developing economies focus on improving labor productivity while those in developed economies aim to improve worker safety.
Industries of developed economies are characterized by a high degree of automation, and any possible impact on industry employment levels remains limited. The focus in these regions is to make the machines and the work environment safer for employees and cut down on litigation costs due to workplace-related injuries.
