Abstract, Snapshot, Market Analysis & Market Definition: Southeast Asia Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Market

The Southeast Asia personal protective equipment market size was estimated at USD 1.14 billion in 2017 and expected to register a CAGR of 8.0% over the forecast period. Increasing product demand due to rising concerns regarding employee safety is expected to emerge as the major factor driving the market. Health and safety standards enforced by various governments and agencies including the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) are also projected to boost the product demand.
However, rise in the prices of the advanced fibers like aramid for the production of such equipment may hinder market growth over the next few years. In addition, the market growth is expected to be restrained by the cost-intensive production processes, which results in a rise in the cost of final product. Raw materials required for the production of PPE are used extensively across various industries, thereby creating a competition in their procurement.

However, growth in the production levels of raw materials coupled with incorporation of additional materials in the PPE manufacturing is expected to spur the industry development. Various government agencies in Southeast Asian countries, such as Malaysia and Thailand, have set stringent regulatory norms across industries, primarily in the manufacturing sector, to ensure workers safety. Thus, such safety standards are also likely to drive the market. Moreover, incorporation of advanced monitoring equipment in PPE has emerged as the major trend impelling the industry growth.
Growing expenditure on PPE by the many small- and medium-sized companies to meet the safety regulations is also among of the major factors responsible for the growth of this market. In addition, increased adoption of such products by various end-use sectors to project an employee-friendly approach will also contribute to the market expansion over the years to come.
