Non-Powered Air Purifying Respirator Market to cross $14 Bn by 2032

  • Published Date: February 13, 2023

Non-Powered Air Purifying Respirator Market size is projected to exceed USD 14 billion by 2032, according to the latest research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

The rigid health standards and occupational safety, especially in North America & Europe, as the chief driver of industry trends. A significant increase in air pollution and the spread of the COVID-19 infection in the industrial workplace has supported the demand for atmosphere-supplying respirators. This encouraged governments to mandate worker safety protocols in these regions.

Respiratory protection equipment shortage to increase FFRs industry share

The disposable or filtering facepiece respirators (FFR) product type is primed to amass USD 10 billion in revenue by 2032. The growing need for source control and respiratory protection to limit exposure to airborne hazardous particles, such as dust, mist, and fume, is fostering the use of FFRs. According to a study, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the CDC allowed the reuse of disposable FFRs due to a significant shortage of PPEs, thus driving non-powered air purifying respirator market adoption.

Notable resale opportunities for mask manufacturers to push offline segment growth

The offline distribution channel in non-powered APR industry is slated to grow at a 4.5% CAGR from 2023 to 2032. These channels entail direct sales of products to industrial consumers, particularly those in food & beverage, healthcare, pharmaceutical, chemical & petrochemical, mining, military, fire services, and oil & gas sectors, through distributors, retailers, and suppliers, which creates promising resale opportunities for manufacturers. In January 2022, Avon Protection, a PPE manufacturer, signed a contract with the Latvian National Armed Forces to supply CBRN respiratory system and FM50 mask systems filters, accessories, and spares.

Increasing application of chemical & petrochemical in automotive sector

The non-powered APR market from the chemical & petrochemical application segment is estimated to reach a valuation of USD 1 billion by 2032. The segment growth is speculated to be driven by the rising number of businesses that are emphasizing worker safety for densely populated on-site jobs, especially in the post-pandemic scenario. To that effect, industry players are introducing special respiratory protection products for the petrochemical and chemical industries.

Substantial respiratory risks among industrial workers to benefit North America industry

The North America non-powered air purifying respirator market is projected to witness 5% growth between 2023 and 2032. The region may emerge as a major hub for this business owing to rising incidences of respiratory disease among industrial workers, which is pushing the government to strengthen worker safety in a variety of industries. In June 2022, the Mine Safety & Health Administration under the U.S. Department of Labor launched a new enforcement initiative to protect miners against health hazards caused by repeated exposure to respirable crystalline silica.

Soaring emphasis on fulfilling consumer demand to foster industry outlook

The competitive landscape is anticipated to observe promising collaborations by the leading players. The strategic initiative aided in amplifying the production capacity of respirators and escalated deliveries by 85%. Some key firms profiled in the market for non-powered air purifying respirator include 3M Company, MSA Safety Inc., Kimberly Clark Corporation, RSG Safety BV, Prestige Ameritech, Shanghai Dasheng Health Products Manufacture Co Ltd., Avon Protection, and DuPont De Nemours, among others.
