Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

Personal Protective Equipment Manufacturing

The Personal Protective Equipment Manufacturing industry thrives on safety regulations. Revenue growth depends on industrial production and construction activity because these downstream markets are the largest purchasers of personal protective equipment and clothing. While construction activity lagged early in the period, heavy construction activity is expected through 2016. Low-cost imports pose a growing threat to domestic manufacturers despite rising demand. To effectively compete, many companies are developing innovative products that compete on the basis of quality rather than price. Booming demand from construction and industrial growth will continue to drive demand for personal protective equipment and clothing over the five years to 2021.

Operators in this industry manufacture personal protective equipment. This includes protective equipment for hands, feet, eyes, ears, faces and respiratory systems. This industry also manufactures ergonomic and fall protection equipment, and protective clothing such as hazmat suits and reflective vests.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
