Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is growing use of robots in lab operations. Automation of operations is the new trend that is sweeping all industries. The use of robots for manual operations has posed a threat to the workforce. These robots are likely to replace the workforce and manpower over the coming years.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is augmented investments in pharmaceutical industry. The increase in investments in the pharmaceutical industry is expected to drive the demand for PPE during the forecast period. In addition, the increasing number of sub-contract laboratories, especially in the pharmaceutical industry, is likely to lead to a rise in demand for PPE during the forecast period. The end-users of PPE in this industry are involved in the discovery of new chemical molecules, new drugs, active pharmaceutical ingredients, and other pharmaceutical ingredients.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is functionality challenges on using multiple PPE. Laboratories and research centers require the simultaneous use of various types of PPE due to the presence of multiple hazards. However, using PPE in combination is a concern to employers as the use of one PPE may render another ineffective. Safety goggles cannot be used with a respiratory mask or ear muffs, as it often reduces the protection of the wearer. The challenge is to make different PPE compatible for combination use, based on the work environment.
