Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Industrial Protective Clothing Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global industrial protective clothing market: 3M, Alpha ProTech, Ansell, Dräger, and Kimberly-Clark.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Gateway Safety, Honeywell, Jallatte, and Kwintet.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Growing emphasis on green materials and processes will be a key trend for market growth. Increasing awareness regarding eco-friendly alternatives across businesses is compelling consumers to seek alternatives that reduce carbon footprint. Owing to this factor, the use of green materials like nitrile for gloves and high-density polyethene for hard hats used in protective clothing are gaining traction. For several segments of protective clothing, costs are being reduced by using less water and decreasing the consumption of non-productive electricity. Many companies are also seeking methods to reduce scrap and minimize the use of resources derived from petrochemical sources.”

According to the report, the non-use of chemical protective clothing in the workplace can incur significant losses. This is a major driver for the growth of the global industrial protective clothing market. The losses incurred due to chemical-related accidents in the workplace are comparatively higher than the price of procuring chemical protective clothing. Therefore, companies worldwide are providing chemical protective clothing to employees to prevent accidents and reduce monetary losses associated with worker injuries. In addition, governments of many countries are imposing severe penalties for laxity in workplace safety.

Further, the report states that stringent government regulations regarding employee health and safety have compelled employers to abide by the mandates for proving safety equipment rather than ensuring its appropriate use and functionality. Therefore, the functionality of the equipment becomes a prime concern. Purchase of protective clothing for its employees is an expensive affair for organizations. The provision of quality products that offer efficient safety at a reasonable cost poses a significant challenge to the vendors in the market. The cost of protective clothing includes many factors such as purchase price, maintenance cost, and service life. Therefore, using the more expensive equipment which provides assured quality and functionality will be cheaper to the buyer over a long run.
