Global Respiratory Protective Equipment Market to exceed $11 billion by 2027

  • Published Date: October 12, 2021

According to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc., the Respiratory Protective Equipment Market size is estimated to surpass USD 11.25 billion by 2027.

The increasing prevalence of infectious biohazards, such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), and Ebola Virus Disease (EVD), is expected to propel the demand for Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE). In addition, safety regulations for workers in various industries are expected to further boost the RPE market during the forecast period. Rapid industrialization in Asia Pacific involving huge investment in the different industries such as chemical manufacturing, oil & gas, construction, mining, marine, aerospace, metal fabrication, agriculture, textile, pulp & paper and food industry will boost the adoption of respiratory protective equipment.

The COVID-19 outbreak has increased the demand for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), such as face shields, gloves, medical masks, aprons, gowns, and respirators including FFP2 or N95, resulting in shortage in various countries. To cope with this situation, several manufacturers are increasing their production capacities and expanding their manufacturing facilities, bolstering the respiratory protective equipment market growth.

The supplied air respirator segment will boost market demand

Based on product, the supplied air respirator is likely to show around 6.4% CAGR by 2027. It consists of a Self-contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) and airline respirators. Supplied air respirators are respiratory protective devices that deliver clean air to users through an air supply tube to prevent inhalation of carbon dioxide as well as oxygen deficient air, contaminated particles, gases, and toxic or potentially harmful vapors in the factory, asbestos removal work, mine, chimney, etc., boosting the segment growth.

In terms of application, the military and aviation sectors are anticipated to generate revenue over USD 800 million by 2027 with a CAGR of 8.4%. Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) is widely used by soldiers to avoid contact with toxic fumes or for protection against dust and pollutants or dangerous toxic substances produced during war. In addition, RPE is widely used in the aviation industry mainly in the form of oxygen masks during emergency situations. Primarily, powered air purifying respirators are used in the military industry, while compressed air respirators are used in the aviation industry. The increased focus of several countries on the defense sector, especially on the safety of soldiers, will propel the respiratory protective equipment market share during the forecast period.
