Strategic Analysis of North American Construction Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Market

Strategic Analysis of North American Construction Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Market

The North American construction industry personal protective equipment (PPE) market generated revenue of $􂀀 billion in 2014 and is expected to grow with a CAGR of 􂀀% to reach $􂀀 billion in 2019.

The most important factor influencing this market is the competitive pricing of products. Despite factors such as comfort, design, and style having a notable impact on the sales of PPE, pricing continues to be the key decision-making factor that drives business; hence, it is increasingly important for PPE manufacturers to adopt cost-efficient business practices so that the end product remains competitive in terms of price.

In a market that is affected by lack of awareness and is extremely under-compliant to safety standards, it is important for manufacturers to increase the level of awareness through educational campaigns, not only for end users, but also for distributors as they are the most important link between PPE manufacturers and the construction industry.

The construction industry is markedly different from other industries, as the hazards in it are often unidentified; as a result, it is very difficult to educate end users about them. Customer service and end-user engagement, therefore, play a vital role in helping companies build long-term relationships with their clients. In addition to providing a reliable supply of products, PPE manufacturers that invest time and effort in understanding the specific needs of their clients are successful.
