Pathogenic microorganisms are the biggest threats in healthcare settings. They are highly prevalent in operating theatres, dialysis stations, intensive care units, and diagnostic laboratories, which is further rising the need for protective clothing to prevent infection in both patients and hospital workers. The market’s most prominent driver is the increasing awareness regarding health, hygiene, and safety of healthcare professionals. Apart from this, rising fatalities due to the COVID-19 outbreak is subsequently surging the demand for personal protective equipment (PPE). In line with this, governments across the globe are channelizing efforts to provide PPEs to healthcare workers.

  • The respiratory protection and the head, eye, & face protection segment hold over 50% of the healthcare personal protective equipment market due to the rising prevalence of communicable diseases, such as COVID-19. However, a shortage of such equipment might hamper segment growth.
