Industrial Head Protection Market size to exceed $4.9Bn by 2032

  • Published Date: December 16, 2022

Industrial Head Protection Market size is estimated to surpass USD 4.9 billion by 2032, as per a recent research report announced by Global Market Insights Inc.

Increasing implementation of compliance programs pertaining to safety and security at the workplace will offer substantial business prospects for manufacturers of industrial head protection products. Personal protective equipment (PPE) demand has experienced tremendous growth across developing nations such as China and India with rapid industrialization. Developing nations with a high concentration of labor also face a high risk of employee injuries. According to International Labor Organization, more than 1.1 million workers die due to occupational mishaps or work-related diseases in the Asia Pacific, representing a robust need for head protection.

Net-zero carbon targets to propel production of HDPE-based industrial head protection

In terms of revenue, industrial head protection market share from high-density polyethylene (HDPE) material segment is estimated to reach over USD 1.2 billion by the end of 2032. HDPE is used owing to myriad favorable properties including resistance to oil, durability, and breathability. The material is widely used to make safety helmets with notable environmental flexibility. HDPE plastics also offer a variety of benefits to manufacturers with cost-effective production and high-performance attractive finished goods. Additionally, the material is lighter and more eco-friendly as compared to other plastic products.
