http://www.reportlinker.com/p02057061/-Personal-Protective-Equipment-in-the-Global-Manunfacturing-Industry—Outlook-and-Trends.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Aerospace_and_Defense

This Market Insight provides a qualitative analysis of the opportunities for personal protective equipment (PPE) products in the global manufacturing industry. It offers an overview of the general types of PPE products required for the overall manufacturing industry. In addition, it discusses some of the specific hazards prevalent in the key sectors, namely, metals, chemicals and materials, machinery and equipment, and automotive and transportation. The study also analyzes employment growth trends and their impact on the market.

Market Overview

This private market insight offers an overview of the personal protective equipment (PPE) market in the global manufacturing industry.

Manufacturing is an important industry that makes a significant GDP contribution to the global economy. In industrialized economies, such as Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Japan, it makes a vital contribution to the economy; in developing countries, substantial growth is being witnessed in the industry.

However, some developed economies are facing a shrinkage in their manufacturing bases as they are becoming increasingly service-based. This has led to a stagnation or a decline in manufacturing output over the past few years.

Other challenges, such as the slower economic growth and the rising labor costs, are adding to the woes of the manufacturing industry in developed countries.

Developing economies are growing faster, as most of these countries' production is outsourced. Additionally, improving economic conditions and demographics are proving to be increasingly attractive for domestic consumption in countries such as China and India. A growing number of manufacturers from different sectors see this as an opportunity to be tapped into.

The demand for PPE in any industry is directly affected by the employment growth and the hazards associated with the occupation.

The manufacturing industry poses many hazards for employees, which are common across the industry. However, the nature and the degree of hazards vary from one sector to another and are also dependent on the type of occupation.

In addition, there are hazards that are specific to certain sectors of manufacturing. For example, refining operations, in addition to chemical hazards, pose a risk of shock hazards due to static electricity.

The manufacturing industry comprises a wide range of diverse sectors. The dynamics and the nature of these sectors vary among each other and also from one region to another.

In this study, an overview of opportunities for PPE is provided on an aggregate level. While there is a wide range of hazards and protection types that are common to general manufacturing, there are also specific hazards that are unique to some sectors that require different PPE products.

This deliverable covers some of the specific requirements by individual sectors for the top-four largest sectors based on employment size: Metals, chemicals and materials, machinery and equipment, and automotive and transportation.

Food and beverage also ranks among the largest in terms of employment size. However, this sector is not covered in detail in this study as Frost & Sullivan has published a separate deliverable titled "Personal Protective Equipment in the Global Food and Beverage Industry—Outlook and Trends", which highlights the opportunities for PPE products in the sector.
