Industrial protective clothing refers to specially designed clothes with a purpose to safeguard personnel from hazardous effects which are caused while working in dangerous working conditions as well as acute changes in the environment. The stringent regulations and rising awareness for the use of such clothing is anticipated to increase the demand for industrial protective clothing market in the near future.
The rapid industrialization taking place in developing nations is directly influencing the market demand for industrial protective clothing. In addition to this, the rising concerns of the company officials regarding providing compensation, loss of productive hours and medical costs is also driving the market demand for industrial protective clothing. Also, the market is recently witnessing a growth in demand for multifunctional protective clothing which enables the protection of personnel from multiple hazards. However, certain factors including inadequate knowledge regarding health hazards and workplace safety particularly, in developing and under-developed economies are restricting the growth of market. Also, the huge investments required for research and development in industrial protective clothing along with high cost of specialized protective clothing is hampering the market growth.
Market Classification and Overview
The industrial protective clothing market is segmented by applications into thermal, mechanical, visibility, biological/radiation, chemical and others. By material type, the market is analyzed into aramid & blends, polyamide, cotton fibers, ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), polyolefin & blends, polybenzimidazole fiber (PBI), laminated polyesters and others. Among the application segment, the market for thermal protection clothing is expected to contribute a large share owing to the protection it provides from extreme cold, arc flash, combustible dust explosion, and fire to the workers employed in several industrial environments such as metal industries, ceramic manufacturing, construction & manufacturing, welding foundries, firefighters etc. Also, the protection provided by thermal protective clothing relies on the requirement of protection.
Furthermore, the industry vertical of industrial protective clothing is segmented into manufacturing & construction, oil & gas, mining, military, healthcare and others. Among the industry vertical segments, the demand for industrial protective clothing in construction & manufacturing industry is projected to be high owing to the need for reduction in accidents and high level of uncertainties in the industries. Also, the governments of many countries have issued strict safety regulations for protective clothing. On the basis of end-user, the market is segmented into personal and industries. The industrial segment is expected to lead attributed to the high usage of protective clothing on a large scale in various industries globally as compared to the amount used by the personal users.
Lastly, the geographical segment is bifurcated into North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Middle East & Africa (MEA) and Latin America. The market in North America for industrial protective clothing is leading in terms of revenue. The growth in North America is attributed by stringent regulations from government for the use of industrial protective clothing. However, the Latin America market is anticipated to be the fastest growing industrial protective clothing market in the coming years owing to the increasing awareness towards the use of industrial protective clothing. Also, the growth in Asia-Pacific is increasing with the increasing public infrastructure development in developing economies such as India, China and many other Southeast Asian economies focusing on construction of airports, roadways, harbors and other such public infrastructures.
