Global Safety Goggles and Glasses Market 2016-2020
About Safety Goggles and Glasses
Safety goggles and glasses are products that protect the wearer's eyes from potentially hazardous elements, ranging from airborne particles to chemicals. The global safety goggles and glasses market will be driven primarily by the increasing demand from APAC, where international companies are pioneering stringent safety programs in their countries of operation. A few countries in this region, such as Japan, Australia, and New Zealand, also have well-defined government regulations on worker safety that are contributing to market growth.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global safety goggles and glasses market to grow at a CAGR of 3.66% during the period 2016-2020.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global safety goggles and glasses market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of safety goggles and glasses by manufacturers.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Safety Goggles and Glasses Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global safety goggles and glasses market: Honeywell, 3M, and Bollé Safety.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Kimberly-Clark, Sellstrom, Radians, Protective Industrial Products, MCR Safety, Gateway Safety, Ergodyne, ERB Industries, Encon Safety Products, and Infield Safety.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Advances in safety eyewear material technology will be a key trend for market growth. Polycarbonate is widely used to manufacture safety eyewear lenses since it is lightweight and offers high optical clarity. Other key materials used in safety glasses include glass, hardened glass, and cellulose acetate. Polycarbonate-based safety goggles and glasses accounted for 70% of the market in 2015. However, with advances in material technology and injection molding technique, new lens materials are being explored by many vendors. So, the other materials segment will post a slightly higher CAGR compared with the polycarbonate segment.”
According to the report, continuous design innovations will be a key driver for market growth. The global safety goggles and glasses market is characterized by continuous innovations. The focus of innovation is shifting from performance to the aesthetic appeal of the safety glass. As vendors have achieved optimum performance standards set by the market, they are now focusing on features and styling to expand their product portfolios.
Further, the report states that a key challenge faced by vendors in the global safety goggles and glasses market is balancing design and performance. Aesthetic appeal may be achieved by using various material technologies. However, complying with regulatory standards such as those specified by the American National Standards Institute limits the design options. For instance, American National Standards Institute standards require safety eyewear to meet specific impact requirements. Such requirements include a high-velocity test, in which the eyewear is expected to withstand the impact of a 0.25-inch steel ball projected at a speed of over 100 miles per hour.
