03 Aug 2015 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Personal protective clothing (PPC) is one of the largest single segments of the performance apparel industry and is a key component of personal protective equipment (PPE). In the majority of developed nations, the markets for PPE are characterised by their maturity and fierce competitiveness, and this has limited their growth potential. Thus, a number of PPE suppliers have been targeting developing markets in an effort to keep their sales growth targets and boost their worldwide competitive performance. Persuading workers to wear proper personal protective clothing every time they face an industrial hazard is yet another challenge. Manufacturers are responding to the growing demand for clothing that does not only serve a protective function but is also comfortable to wear. Therefore, the usage of high-performance fabric with thermal regulation and moisture management characteristics has become widespread. Having become powerful selling tools, such factors are essential for enhancing compliance with regulations that call for the usage of personal protective clothing. Additionally, there is a drive for the personal protective clothing sector to become more sustainable by decreasing consumption of petroleum based materials and using sustainable processes and raw materials.
