The protective clothing market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.0% over the next five years to reach $8 billion by 2018. Asia-Pacific, with its flourishing economy and rapidly expanding industrial sectors, is an emerging market and will experience the second-highest growth in demand during 2013 to 2018, after North America.

The major driving factors of this market are stringent regulatory requirements related to employees/workers’ safety in end-user industries which enforce many industrial workers to wear protective clothing in risky and hazardous working environments. The other growth driver is industrial development in the emerging economies leading to rising employment rate in the developing countries which directly pushes the demand for protective clothing. Increasing concern over the safety of workers by companies owing to the high cost involved in workplace accidents such as medical cost, compensation, loss of productive hours, etc. are also driving the demand for protective clothing.

Upcoming opportunities such as use of phase change materials in the fabrics of protective clothing show a promising growth for the protective clothing market. This will enhance the protective attribute of the thermal protective clothing compared to current materials. Many industrial work environments require multifunctional protective clothing in case of exposure to more than one hazard. Multifunctionality is the growing trend in the protective clothing market.

Protective clothing is used in the wide ranging end-user industries such as oil and gas, construction & manufacturing, health care/medical, firefighting & law enforcement, mining, military, and many more. Protective clothing have a number of protective functions that range from thermal, chemical, mechanical, biological/radiation, and visibility. Thermal and chemical protective clothing are the most important applications of protective clothing. Thermal protective clothing offers protection from extreme heat, cold, electric arc, and fire. It is used in many industries including oil and gas, firefighting, and manufacturing. Chemical protective clothing provides protection from hazardous chemicals in various forms such as liquid, gaseous, or vapor. The global demand for thermal protective clothing is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.6% during the next five years.

The protective clothing market is analyzed in terms of revenue ($million) application-wise, on the basis of fabric type, end-user industry-wise, and user type-wise for all major regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. The revenue figures are further broken down by major countries in respective regions. Aramid & blends, polyolefin & blends, polyamide, PBI, UHMW polyethylene, cotton fibers, laminated polyesters, and others (various rubber types, leather) are the major materials used for the production of protective clothing. The major users of protective clothing are by the consumers for personal use and industrial users in risky and hazardous working conditions.
