Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Gas Masks Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global gas masks market: 3M, Honeywell, Avon Protection Systems, and MSA Safety.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Bullard, Gateway Safety, ILC Dover, Kimberly-Clark, Moldex, Optrel, RPB Safety, RSG Safety, Scott Safety, and Sundström Safety.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is demand from first responders. First responders include firefighters, police officers, and rescuers. Their role includes rescuing civilians trapped in emergency situations, preventing fires, and quickly adapting to changing environments in hazardous conditions. Hazardous conditions faced by first responders include fire, smoke, and leakage of toxic gases and other contaminants into the air.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is demand from manufacturing industries. Gas masks, including air-purifying respirators and general purpose respirators, protect users by preventing the inhalation of hazardous gases, smoke, and vapors. They also provide clean and purified air by removing contaminants and other harmful materials. Manufacturing industries such as paper mills, wood sawmills, textile mills, metal fabrication, oil and gas, and food processing plants involve the risk of minute particles, fumes, smoke, and toxic gases, which can be harmful to workers.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is need for regular maintenance. Gas masks such as PAPR, SCBA, and other supplied air purifying respirators include components like valves, cartridges, breathing tubes, blowers, and pumps. These types of gas masks require proper maintenance and additional care to ensure efficient and safe operation. Any damage or tear in the components can be potentially dangerous to the user. After using a gas mask in any extreme environment, it needs to be inspected and maintained properly before next use. Manufacturers provide guidelines for using and maintaining various types of gas masks.
