Coronavirus spread has led to a medium to high impact on the each and every industry. Along with nationwide lockdowns implemented by governments, manufacturers are forced to shut down their production and supply operations and also impacted the prices and supply for raw material for short and medium terms. Moreover, the construction of new infrastructure development projects is on hold. However, governments across the globe has started unlocking process which will result in resuming construction activities in full swing.

PPE for electrical safety is uncomfortable at some point for instance, while working in mining industry. As they are made from thick and hard material which makes them uncomfortable, hot, and tighten for the employees working in oil & gas and mining. Therefore, it resulted in low acceptance toward safety equipment by workers, and thus hampering the electrical safety PPE demand in the current scenario.

Moreover, arc flash protective clothing develops heat stress and acts as a barrier to natural cooling process, thus leading to excessive sweating and discomfort. Bulky, non-breathable equipment can increase the risk for heat-related illness, which if not treated immediately may lead to heat stroke.

Hence these factors led to challenge industry growth over the coming timeframe, although multiple benefits of personal protective equipment at workplace such as protection from electric shock and other accidental harm led to overcome this hindrance in the industry.
