The global personal protective equipment market is expected to grow from USD 45.27 USD Billion in 2018 to USD 73.80 Billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 6.3% during the forecast period from 2019-2026. Personal protective equipment, commonly referred to as "PPE," is equipment worn to minimize exposure to hazards causing serious injury and illness in the workplace. Such injuries and illness may result from contact with chemical, radiological, physical, electrical, mechanical or other hazards in the workplace. Personal protective equipment may include items such as gloves, safety glasses and shoes, etc. Rising demand for respiratory protective equipment to ensure the safety of employees working in oil and gas, petrochemicals and mining sectors is expected to drive the growth. However, increased automation in end-use industries is a restraining factor for the personal protective equipment market. Automated processes in industries and construction sites require fewer workers and result in a decreased use of personal protective equipment, which may hamper the market growth.

The type segment is divided into hands & arm protection, protective clothing, foot & leg protection, respiratory protection, eye & face protection, head protection and others. The hands & arm protection segment emerged as the leader in the global personal protective equipment market with a revenue of USD 9.73 billion in 2018. Risks associated with corrosive chemicals, heavy-duty equipment and handling warm objects are likely to propel the demand for protective gloves in construction, healthcare, food processing, oil and gas, and metal fabrication industries.

The end-use industry segment includes manufacturing, construction, oil & gas, healthcare, transportation, firefighting, food and others. The manufacturing segment is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR of around 6.6% over the forecast period because strong growth in manufacturing activities mainly in developing economies from Asia Pacific and Central and South America is anticipated to boost the demand for employee protection products, thereby driving the demand for personal protective equipment in the manufacturing segment.

The regions analyzed for the market include North America, Europe, South America, Asia Pacific, and Middle East and Africa. North America region led the global Personal Protective Equipment market with a revenue of USD 14.12 billion in 2018. The region is characterized by increasing workplace fatalities and stringent regulations imposed by regulatory bodies such as OSHA, thereby boosting the product demand. The Asia Pacific market is predicted to be the fastest-growing region in the forecast period. This rise has resulted due to the expansion of transportation sector, increase in production and a rapid growth in the construction sector.
