The research study covers the present scenario and growth prospects of the global industrial protective clothing market for 2016-2020. The report also presents the vendor landscape and a corresponding detailed analysis of the five prominent vendors operating in the market.
The global protective clothing market was valued at USD 8.1 billion in 2015. It is foreseen to reach USD 12.41 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 8.91%. Exposure to harmful materials in industries has been one of the major issues affecting the workers. Many chemicals and toxic fumes, harmful radiation, and heat are emitted during different manufacturing and industrial processes; these emissions cause significant health risks including trauma, pulmonary disorders, and cancer. These factors have led to the acceptance of protective clothing across many industries.

Technavio chemicals and materials analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the global industrial protective clothing market:
- Technological advances in protective fabrics
- Non-use of chemical protective clothing resulting in accidents
- Enforcement of regulations on handling of chemicals
Technological advances in protective fabrics
The growing concerns regarding worker safety, restricting illness and injuries, and protecting the personnel from fire, chemical agents, and life-threatening injuries have led to the continuous improvement in the protective clothing industry. The industrial protective clothing segment is experiencing significant changes owing to the rapid advances in manufacturing processes and technology.
Ajay Adikhari, a lead textile, fiber, and composites analyst at Technavio, says, “New materials, new manufacturing processes for advanced textiles, and other advances in technology have led to the development of improved protective fabrics. Currently, some of the significant advances are taking place in sports, defense, fire protection, and radiation protection applications.”
Non-use of chemical protective clothing resulting in accidents
The non-use of chemical protective clothing in the workplace can incur significant losses. This is a major driver for the growth of the global industrial protective clothing market. The losses incurred due to chemical-related accidents in the workplace are comparatively higher than the price of procuring chemical protective clothing. Therefore, companies worldwide are providing chemical protective clothing to employees to prevent accidents and reduce monetary losses associated with worker injuries. In addition, governments of many countries are imposing severe penalties for laxity in workplace safety.
Enforcement of regulations on handling of chemicals
Stringent regulations regarding the use of chemical protective clothing is a primary driver for the growth of the global industrial protective clothing market. There has been a substantial increase in the number of accidents and injuries caused by the exposure to hazardous chemicals in the workplace over the last decade due to rapid global industrial development.
This factor has prompted governments in Europe and the Americas to implement stringent regulations that mandate the use of personal protective equipment and clothing. Countries in MEA and APAC are also expected to implement similar regulations. Therefore, the demand for chemical protective clothing is expected to grow during the forecast period.
