Increasing fatal injuries caused by exposure to harmful substance or environment has prompted government to implement safety standards for industries and encouraged manufacturer to produce high quality and innovative products in order to support worker safety. In U.S. the fatal injuries caused by exposure to harmful substances or environments at work increased by 17% from 531 in 2017 to 621 in 2018.

Stringent U.S. safety regulations by OSHA including general industry PPE standards and construction PPE standards will augment the utilization of protective apparel and thus will augment the industrial protective fabrics market share. The stringent regulations set by regulatory bodies such as OSHA, GB standards, and European commission across the globe regarding worker safety should foster industry growth.

COVID-19 has significantly disrupted the value chain owing to restriction of transportation, shut down of manufacturing facilities and closures of borders across the countries. Due to COVID-19 outbreak several factories including automotive, metallurgy, chemical and general manufacturing have led to temporary closure of operations resulting into lowered product demand. Furthermore, halt in industrial protective fabrics manufacturing facilities resulted into lowered demand for raw materials. However, the reopening and resuming manufacturing operations across various countries since May 2020 such as the U.S., Italy, India, Germany and China should drive the industrial protective fabrics market growth.
