Growth Factors

 Increasing demand for disposable masks and respirators in healthcare facilities is expected to have a positive impact on the market growth. The demand for respiratory protective equipment (RPE) increased exponentially during the COVID-19 pandemic prompting manufacturers to boost their production capacities. Moreover, the supply chain disruptions, led to the unavailability of raw materials, ultimately resulting in increased product prices. RPE manufacturers also started developing innovative products to fight against the COVID-19, which supported the market growth.

By Product Analysis

The APRs segment led the market and accounted for more than 54% of the global revenue share in 2020. The demand for APRs has increased significantly owing to the sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic across the globe. Disposable filtering masks and half-mask respirators are spearheading the growth of the APRs segments.

Half mask air-purifying respirators have been designed to meet the specifications set by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and are tested & certified in NIOSH labs. 

The Supplied Air Respirators (SARs) segment is estimated to witness the fastest CAGR of 8.4% from 2019 to 2028. These respirators are primarily used in hazardous environments or Immediately Dangerous to Life or Health (IDLH) situations.

Airline respirators provide long-duration respiratory protection. They consist of a full or half-mask facepiece connected by an air-supply hose to an air source.

By End-use Analysis

The healthcare segment led the global RPE market and accounted for more than 47% of the global revenue share in 2020. The emergence of global infectious diseases including influenza, COVID-19, and Ebola has boosted the adoption of RPE in the healthcare sector, which is projected to drive the market over the forecast period.

Employees from the oil & gas industry are expected to wear protective respirators when the engineering and work practice control measures are not adequate, to prevent contamination of the atmosphere.

The pharmaceutical segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR of 9.3% over the forecast period. The pharmaceutical industry has been associated with a large number of biohazards and chemical hazards. 

The mining industry is characterized by exposure to various particulates including organic vapors and gases, which can cause harm to the human body. Air-purifying respirators with a cartridge are one of the commonly used respirators in the mining industry to avoid exposure to contaminants in mines, which supports the market growth.

By Regional Analysis

Europe led the market with over 35% of the global revenue share in 2020. Stringent regulations pertaining to personal protective equipment (PPE) by the European Commission have augmented the market growth.

Rising investments in the construction, manufacturing, and food & beverage sectors are anticipated to drive the demand for RPE in the Asia Pacific region. 

The product demand in North America is estimated to witness growth at a CAGR of 7.8% over the forecast period. The increasing production of natural gas and shale in the U.S. and Canada coupled with stringent norms laid by the OSHA is expected to augment the market growth.

Rising investments in exploration & production and refining capacity expansion projects in Central & South America are expected to drive the product demand in the regional oil & gas sector.
