Personal Protective Equipment in the Global Steel Industry—Outlook and Trends

This research service looks at the opportunities for personal protective equipment (PPE) in the global steel industry.

The steel industry forms the backbone of the global economy and is the key to ensure economic and infrastructure development. The industry, however, presents one of the most challenging work environments because of a presence of a variety of physical, chemical, mechanical, and electrical hazards.

This statement is corroborated by the fact that the steel industry remains the most injury-prone manufacturing sub-sector, with almost 􂀀% of its workforce requiring the mandatory use of PPE.

The steel industry has experienced high consolidation activities over the last decade, accompanied by a steep increase in labor productivity and steel production output. Additionally, the industry faces stiff challenges with respect to overcapacity, volatile raw material costs, and low margins, all resulting in restrained growth in employment opportunities.

Global steel producers increasingly seek to spread safety awareness and equip the workforce with quality PPE, with the intention to reduce the risk of liabilities and worker compensation costs.

The objective of this Frost & Sullivan strategic market insight is to assess current trends and future growth prospects for PPE use in the steel industry.
