Personal protective equipment are products and accessories that ensure employee safety during on-site and off-site work. RPE is a type of personal protective equipment used in various commercial and industrial sectors to protect employees from contaminants, aerosolized chemicals, and harmful gases. They are also being extensively used by the general population to shield themselves from adverse effects of various airborne impurities encountered in day-to-day activities. In North America, the use of RPEs is mandatory under the OSHA directives Respiratory Protection Standard 1910.134, whereas in Europe the European Commission's Personal Protective Equipment Directive 89/656/EEC applies. The equipment is used in various sectors including healthcare, metals and mining, processing industry, construction, aerospace and defense, and fire services.

The market is expected to grow at a constant rate during the forecast period because of increased government emphasis on their usage at workplaces in developed economies. The growth of the market is further augmented by the increased need for protection of military and healthcare personnel owing to increased threat of chemical and biological warfare, and increase in outbreaks of rapidly spreading diseases.

Technavio's analysts forecast the global RPE market to grow at a CAGR of 6.23% in terms of revenue over the period 2014-2019.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio's team said: "The increase in instances of rapidly spreading diseases killing thousands of people in specific geographical areas around the world in recent years has had a major positive impact on the growth of the global RPE market."

According to the report, the demand for RPE from the defense sectors across the world has been on the rise in recent years because of the increase in social and political unrest worldwide. Fear of chemical and biological warfare, resulting from the constant in-fighting and rise in terrorism in petrochemical and chemical industry-rich Middle Eastern countries, along with the increase in the development of chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction in developed countries in Europe and the Americas, has prompted governments to procure RPE and chemical protective equipment.

Further, the report states that the lack of awareness in developing countries about the advantages of RPE has been a major challenge hindering the growth of this market in recent years. The demand for RPE has been low in emerging economies in APAC and MEA because of the absence of stringent laws regarding workplace safety and the lack of knowledge about the benefits of using RPE.
