DUBLIN, September 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Respiratory Protection Equipment Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.
The report forecasts the global respiratory protection market to grow at a CAGR of 6.84% during the period 2016-2020.
Emphasis on comfort and personalization will be a key trend for market growth. The fit of the equipment often determines its effectiveness in providing protection to the wearer. Good fit and comfort play a vital role in the effective working of PPE, and manufacturers are abandoning the one-size-fits-all model as fit differs from one person to the next. Proper fit is crucial to protecting the wearer from harmful particles. For instance, Advantage Half-Mask 420 respirators offered by MSA Safety have its UniBond over-mold facepiece to eliminate leaks and AnthroCurve face seal, which adapts to various head sizes and facial contours, offering the wearer comfort and fit. The comfort of the equipment will also increase wearer compliance. Companies often customize the equipment to suit specific working environments. For instance, US-based Total Safety, a leading provider of industrial respiratory protection solutions offers custom designs to comply with end-users' specific requirement.
According to the report, increase in terrorist attacks will be a key driver for market growth. From 1970 to 2014, 143 terrorist attacks, including 95 chemical, 35 biological, and 13 radiological, were reported globally. The increased threat of chemical attacks forces countries to improve their preparedness in future and equip their rescue and law enforcement forces with proper ammunition as well as safety equipment. Although RPE are not effective against all forms of chemical or biological attacks, gas masks, used properly, can protect wearers to an extent.
Further, the report states that for an organization, purchasing PPE like RPE for its employees is expensive.
