Global Foot Protective Equipment Market 2015-2019

Market outlook of foot protective equipment

Technavio's market research analyst predicts the global foot protective equipment (FPE) market to grow at a rate of 7% during the forecast period. The manufacturing and construction industry in the APAC region is undergoing radical upgradation in terms of work safety, thereby driving the demand for FPE over the forecast period.
