Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Nuclear Protective Clothing Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global nuclear protective clothing market: 3M, DuPont, Honeywell, and Lakeland Industries.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Eastern Technologies, Kappler, Lancs Industries, MATISEC, Professional Protection Systems, and W. L. Gore & Associates.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is integration of e-commerce channels for procurement of nuclear protective clothing. The growing popularity of quick delivery services will drive the growth of Internet retailing worldwide. The growth of e-commerce retail sales will drive the market for nuclear protective clothing. Vendors are majorly focusing on e-commerce in the developed countries, such as the UK and the US. Another trend in the market is the procurement of PPE via e-commerce channels. The B2B e-commerce market is still maturing and shows a wide scope for growth. The major reasons for this growth is the higher adoption of mobile and Internet penetration, growing competition of e-commerce players, and improved logistics and infrastructure.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is highly regulated industry. Occupational exposure to ionizing radiation occurs in nuclear power plants and nuclear research institutes. Workers exposed to radiation in nuclear power plants and research labs are required to be protected from harmful radiation. This radiation can cause deterministic effects, and there is a probability of the occurrence of stochastic effects. Deterministic effects are the harmful effects of radiation caused due to a certain dose of radiation leading to harmful tissue reactions, causing radiation sickness. Stochastic effects are severe effects caused by radiation on an individual leading to hereditary effects and cancer.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is optimizing comfort and performance. Comfort is a key factor that determines wearer compliance. Heavy PPE may cause discomfort to the wearers due to increased heat and sweat, low ventilation, and allergies during work. For instance, nuclear protective wear is usually manufactured using heavy fabrics that offer efficient protection. However, their weight may cause the wearer discomfort. Workers are often required to wear this PPE for a long duration of time or throughout their work hours.
