Personal Protective Clothing Has Positive Future Outlook, According to New Report by Textiles Intelligence Published at MarketPublishers.com20 Apr 2016 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – Personal protective clothing (PPC) is currently recognised as one of the biggest single sectors of the overall performance apparel industry and, at the same time, is a major sector of the personal protective equipment (PPE) market.
In the majority of developed nations, the PPE markets are characterised by their maturity and fierce competitiveness, and this has limited their growth potential. Therefore, a number of PPE suppliers have been targeting developing markets in an effort to keep their sales growth targets and boost their worldwide competitive position.
Persuade workers to put on proper personal protective clothing every time they face an occupational hazard is another challenge. Manufacturers are to respond to the growing workers’ 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. These factors have emerged as powerful selling tools and are essential to enhance compliance with regulations calling for the usage of personal protective clothing.
Furthermore, there is a prospect for the personal protective clothing sector to become more sustainable by decreasing consumption of petroleum based materials and rising usage of sustainable processes and raw materials.
