Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is wearable technology. Wearable technology has been experiencing high adoption in the consumer segment, and is gaining momentum in the industrial segment as well. Implementing wearable technology in the industrial environment is a new concept that will ensure and enhance employee safety. Wearable technology is a subset of Internet of things, which is used to collect data and provide information in a faster and more convenient way. A wearable user interface provides vital information through electronics that are designed to be worn on the human body as implants or accessories.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is rise in women workforce. The world is witnessing a surge in women workforce in the recent years. Across various industries such as manufacturing, construction, agriculture, and mining, the number of women employees is seeing an upward trend. With the growth of women workforce in the industrial sector, there is an increase in demand for PPE for women. Vendors are focusing on providing PPE products that are ergonomically suitable for women.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is cost and functionality trade off. Many workplaces 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. For example, 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.
