Fact.MR’s report predicts the global personal protective equipment to exceed market revenue of US$ 99.09 Bn by registering a positive CAGR of 6.2% through the forecast period 2021-2031. Safety concerns at hazardous work places is boosting the demand for personal protective equipment.

However, manufacturers eventually overcame this shortage, enlisting assistance of leading international organizations, including the U.N, to streamline PPE products availability.

Manufacturers are focusing on collaboration and sharing information on developing effective PPE kits. In addition, the demand from end user industries for specific product type such as hand and arm protection and eye protection is influencing the market positively.
