Why are We Seeing High Demand for Drench Hoses?

“Strong Government Policies and Regulatory Framework Regarding Worker Safety”

Factors such as growing concerns over safety and healthy working conditions coupled with the introduction of stringent regulatory standards will propel the growth of the drench hose industry during the forecast period. Despite proper engineering controls, equipment, and safety precautions, accidental exposure to hazardous materials can occur. The fatality rate due to exposure to hazardous chemicals has increased to 29% over the past half-decade.

Emergency drench hoses aid in on-site decontamination which helps remove harmful substances that can cause injury. This can raise concerns about safety leading to expect to drive the demand for drench hoses during the forecast period.

However, low consumer product awareness will further limit the market growth during the forecast period. This will further help in the development of the end-user industry coupled with government regulations on employee safety as expected to create demand for more emergency stations across the globe. Moreover, stringent government norms for drench hoses will act as a driver for end-use market players to increase their product penetration.

What Can Hurt the Sales of Drench Hoses Companies?

“Less Product Awareness among Many End Users”

Drench hoses are just one of the emergency safety equipment that covers occupational safety regulations according to industry standards. However, such misleading behavior is common and this low awareness of emergency drench hoses safety equipment, and eye wash stations among end users is still observed.

It is found that some workers in all industrial and commercial sectors are unaware of the benefits that can be derived from this safety device and its application. Even in developed countries, various manufacturers in industrial sectors such as chemical/petrochemical, pharmaceutical, and oil & gas are unaware of emergency drench hoses safety devices.

Even commercial sectors such as construction and mining are unaware of such safeguards that could minimize serious injury. However, such a decline in end-users regarding awareness about product usage is expected to become a major restraining factor for the market shortly.

  • The International Labor Organization (ILO) says all industries must meet OSHA standards to improve worker safety. Other regulations such as ANSI Z358. 1-2014 focuses on the design, performance, use, maintenance, and certification of various types of emergency equipment such as eye washes.

As such, the portable or emergency drench hose market is projected to reach a value of 475.6 million in 2023.

What is the Market Scenario for Twin Head Drench Hoses?

Wall-mounted twin-head drench hoses are the perfect addition to regular safety showers and eyewash stations. In factories, chemical plants, foundries, workshops, and any other places of business that need emergency eyewash facilities, dual-head emergency drench hoses are perfect. An eyewash station can be replaced if the lab has a dual-head drench hose. These drench hoses ought to have a valve that enables the water to remain open without requiring the user to hold the handle.

On the lab sink of some sinks, there is a single-head drench hose connector. This type of drench hose does not replace an eyewash or emergency shower but can be used as an additional emergency device to remove chemicals from the eyes and skin in an emergency. Based on this, sales of double-headed drench hoses are expected to reach a market value of US$ 675.2 million in 2023.
