Respiratory Protection Equipment Manufacturing in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Respiratory Protection Equipment Manufacturing

The Respiratory Protection Equipment Manufacturing industry has exhibited slight growth due to the high prevalence of respiratory diseases among many downstream sectors. Additionally, many manufacturers have integrated their products with technology, which has been particularly integral in attracting downstream markets that operate in extreme conditions (e.g. the mining sector). Industry revenue is expected to continue growing modestly over the next five years, but strong foreign competition will constrain profit.

This industry manufactures respiratory protection equipment, including respirators, masks and accessories, gas masks, respiration air supplying self-contained breathing apparatus and accessories, respirator filters and accessories, protective films, and powered air-purifying respirator systems (PAPRs) and accessories. The industry does not include sleep and breathing aids for consumers with medical conditions, since these products are not considered protection equipment.

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.
