The demand for respiratory personal protective equipment (PPE) has gone up throughout North America in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The regional market is also drawing growth from the strong presence of key market players in countries such as the U.S. In January 2021, Honeywell International Inc., a US-based multinational conglomerate, hit a new milestone by delivering more than 225 million PPEs and face masks in December 2020 to multiple locations in the U.S., including healthcare facilities, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

High product prices and user discomfort may support respiratory protective equipment market growth

Despite a broad scope for product adoption, the industry faces a major challenge in the form of high respiratory protective device prices and user discomfort. While powered RPEs see strong demand among many healthcare workers, their weight and connection to the corrugated breathing tube impedes the user mobility to a certain extent, hampering product adoption. In addition, the facepieces used in air-purifying respirators also reduce sound transmission by attenuating and distorting sound, making communication difficult in crucial settings. 

Strong demand for PAPR from doctors and healthcare workers to accelerate product segment growth

Based on the product, the respiratory protective equipment market is bifurcated into supplied air respirator (SAR), air purifying respirator (APR), and others. The air purifying respirator (APR) segment is further classified into powered and unpowered.

With respect to APR, the powered segment is anticipated to reach USD 4.5 billion by 2032. Elevated use of these products among doctors and healthcare workers during the pandemic has given the segment a strong revenue boost. Powered APRs offer more protection to wearers in comparison to N95 FFRs and reusable elastomeric half-face piece respirators. With more potent virus variants, such as the XBB.1.5, spreading across the world, the demand for powered APR masks is likely to go up.
