Healthcare powered air purifying respirator (HPAPR) uses an electric fan and particle filter to remove particles (dust, fumes, mist) and/or dangerous gases from the working environment. In comparison to reusable respirators, PAPR delivers superior protection and allows for considerably more pleasant breathing. This respirators works by blowing polluted air through a HEPA filter, which eliminates the contamination and delivers clean air to a face piece. A PAPR may have a tight-fitting half or full face piece or a loose-fitting face piece, hood, or helmet. A PAPR system typically includes a blower, battery, headpiece & a breathing tube. It has an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Assigned protection factor (APF) of at least 25 for loose-fitting hoods and helmets, 50 for tight-fitting half masks, and 1,000 for full-face piece types, as well as some loose-fitting hoods and helmets with an APF of 1,000 according to the manufacturer's tests.

Market Dynamics

The global healthcare powered air purifying respirator market is primarily driven by the introduction of biological viruses such as coronavirus, Zika, and Middle East respiratory disease among others. Also, the growing emphasis on hygiene in healthcare facilities to decrease healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) also boost the global healthcare PAPR market growth. Additionally, healthcare PAPRs are essential for healthcare professionals to reduce the danger of exposure to secretions, body fluids, and excretions while caring for patients, which also acts as a vital healthcare wearable for them. PAPR has been widely utilized and is mentioned as a choice by many international health organizations.

The growing rate of COVID-19 pandemic drives the healthcare powered air purifying respirator industry

For more than a century, the corona virus has posed the greatest worldwide health threat. As a result of viral pneumonia and respiratory distress syndrome induced by COVID infection, numerous patients have been hospitalized to intensive care. During pandemics and epidemics of highly virulent diseases with high morbidity and case fatality rates, healthcare workers (HCWs) are particularly vulnerable. Thus the use of healthcare powered air purifying respirator was mandated by many government organization for healthcare workers. Healthcare PAPRs (powered air-purifying respirators) give full coverage for wearers with facial hair and can be used as an alternative PPE to allow healthcare workers to continue working during the pandemic while keeping their hair uncut. This system comprises of a protective cowl that provides full head protection as well as shoulder coverage. Thus, an intense demand for healthcare PAPR is witnessed during the time of COVID-19 pandemic.

Market Segmentation

Global healthcare powered air purifying respirator market is segmented based on product type, and region. Based on the product type segment, the market classifies into half mask, full face mask, and helmets, hoods & visors. Among the product type, half mask dominated the market with more than half of the market share in 2020 and is anticipated to continue its dominance during the forecast period 2021 – 2028. The segment's rapid growth is due to its superior protection over N95 masks, thanks to the inclusion of High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters or P100 high-efficiency filters. Moreover, the regional segmentation is given into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and The Middle East & Africa.

Regional Overview

North America region is expected to lead global healthcare powered air purifying respirator market during the projected period of 2021 to 2028

Among all the regions, North America generated the highest revenues in 2020. Over the predicted period, increased demand for PAPR in North America was driven by the proliferation of the corona virus in the region. For instance, according to the latest data disclosed by World Health Organization (WHO), the total cases of COVID-19 are over 46,697,360 with over 755,950 total deaths in the US. Following the COVID-19 epidemic, governments in the region are anticipated to invest more in healthcare facilities. This is projected to have a beneficial impact on North American healthcare powered air purifying respirator market growth. Meanwhile, the Asia-Pacific healthcare powered air purifying respirator market is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR throughout the forecast period 2021 – 2028. The market for APAC is growing because of the developing healthcare infrastructures such as hospitals and clinics, rising medical tourism, and an increasing number of people choosing for home care facilities in emerging economies such as China and India.
