LONDON, March 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- A sweeping wave of regulation enforcement, coupled with increased product and service usage, is augmenting growth in the Western European fall protection market. Italy and Iberia will offer high opportunities due to changing customer preference in terms of quality, durability and comfort; decreased price sensitivity; and a rising safety consciousness. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) must develop service and product portfolios with strong branding to reap rich dividends in a highly consolidated market.
"Convenience is a key end-user requirement. Therefore, the adoption of products that offer higher comfort, style, and level of safety are expected to gain momentum," said Visionary Science Research Analyst Siddharth Anand Sainath.

Other market developments include:
- Slow growth in the soft goods segment due to market maturity and price sensitivity will be evened out by growth of installed systems, mainly due to the use of rigid lifeline systems that can conveniently support multiple users with minimum issues. Together the segments accounted for 56.9 per cent of the total fall protection market revenues in 2016.
- Sluggish demand in the guardrails and monorails segment due to lack of innovation. Increasing end-user awareness will result in higher product penetration.
- Robust growth in the Germany and Scandinavia markets due to economic developments, high compliance, and product penetration.
"Specialty organizations dominate the training services sub-segment," noted Sainath. "Fall protection OEMs should focus on developing a comprehensive training course portfolio to gain market share, increase revenues, and enhance their brand visibility."
