Global Disposable Respirator Market 2017-2021

About Disposable Respirator

Disposable respirators are one of the most widely used respiratory protection devices due to the ease of use and disposal as well as their reasonable prices. Unlike face masks, disposable respirators provide low breathing resistance and efficient protection against oil-based and non-oil-based particulates. A disposable respirator constitutes a face seal and straps and sometimes includes an exhalation valve and an adjustable nose clip. Disposable respirators are one of the widely used respiratory protection equipment due to their ease of use and disposal, and their reasonable prices. Unlike face masks, disposable respirators provide low breathing resistance and efficient protection against oil-based and non-oil-based particulates.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Disposable Respirator Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global disposable respirator market: 3M, Honeywell International, Kimberly-Clark, and Moldex.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Alpha ProTech, Alpha Solway, Ansell, Drägerwerk , Gateway Safety, The Gerson Company, and VWR.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in market is provision of ergonomically designed disposable respirators. Various kinds of work hazards include burns, dusts inhalation, inhalation of harmful fumes and smoke. These hazards can be prevented by using various PPE such as eye protection, helmets, and gloves. Along with these hazards, there are various comfort issues such as heat producing working environment, pinching nose piece, static posture, and working in confined spaces.”

According to the report, one driver in market is frequent outbreaks of epidemics. Epidemic refers to a widespread outbreak of a contagious or infectious disease within a short time in a particular geographical region. A flu or any other disease can turn into an epidemic due to delay in implementing control measures or the absence of control measures, poor sanitation, and poor immunity among the indigenous population against the disease. Disposable respirators play an important role in containing and preventing such outbreaks of airborne diseases. For instance, the influenza virus is generally spread through air. During instances of widespread infection, government bodies recommend the use of respirators that filter out harmful viruses, bacteria, and mold. Airborne diseases such as influenza, meningitis, and measles are spread through the liquid droplets suspended in the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

Further, the report states that one challenges in market is increasing adoption of advanced respiratory equipment. Advanced respiratory equipment is slowly replacing disposable respirators in various industries. Various types of respirators perform two major functions: supply clean air through the tank or airline, and to remove contaminants by filtering. These functions are carried out using disposable respirators, air-purifying respirators, self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA), and PAPR. Disposable respirators have their limitations when compared with advanced respiratory equipment. Disposable respirators can filter out most of the air contaminants but in places with unusual high levels of air pollution, the resultant filtered air might still not be fit for breathing.
