U.S. PPE Market to Top USD 13 billion in 2012, According to SBI
28 Aug 2012 • by Natalie Aster
The U.S. market for personal protective equipment (PPE) is estimated to top $13 billion in 2012. As the economy begins to heat up, U.S. PPE sales should exceed $14.1 billion in 2013, which represents an 8.2 percent increase over the 2012 figure. The strengthening global economy should increase the growth rate in 2015 with PPE sales in the U.S. anticipated to hit $16.7 billion.
The demand for PPE varies according factors such as working environment, job duties and responsibilities and the risk of injury or fatality. Of course not all workplace injuries can be reduced by the use of PPE. Certain types of incidents such as workplace violence, vehicular accidents, reaction injuries and others can in general only be reduced through policies, procedures, education and training. As such, demand for PPE is driven by efforts to reduce or eliminate incidents that are preventable through the use external devices or gear.
SBI’s research report “Personal Protective Equipment in the U.S.” shows that for 2010, U.S. private industry employers reported nearly 3.1 million nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses, resulting in an incidence rate of 3.5 cases per 100 equivalent full-time workers, which is down from 3.6 cases reported in 2009. This decline is consistent with the downward trend that has been evident since 2002.
