PPE kits include helmets, caps, gloves, goggles & glasses, facemasks, earplugs, vests, jackets, fluid-resistant gowns, and boots & shoes. PPE detection systems capture real-time images and video footage through CCTVs and transfer it to the software. It then detects if the person is wearing PPE on the body or not. It further sends a signal that alerts the supervisor or the system that restricts the opening of the door of the restricted area or registers the violation of rules and regulations.

Many injuries and deaths of workers have occurred over the last few years, majorly in construction and heavy industries. Therefore, for the worker's safety, the governments and the manufacturing companies in several countries have made it compulsory to provide the worker with appropriate PPE kits during working and mandatory to wear while working on site. Thus, the companies have installed PPE detection systems at their construction and production sites to verify if the worker is wearing the PPE while working or not.

Additionally, there has been a spike in the healthcare industry with several new hospitals in developing nations and new R&D laboratories and manufacturing plants in the pharmaceutical industry. This has led to the adoption of PPE kits while working as a mandatory rule. The PPE detection market is primarily driven owing to stringent government and industrial rules to utilize PPE while working in heavy industrial areas. Additionally, the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries are rapidly developing. 

The PPE detection market is divided into type, deployment, end-user, and region.

Market Dynamics

Drivers: Growth of the Healthcare Industry

The healthcare sector is rapidly expanding due to the rise in diseases and infections worldwide. This has led to an increase in the construction of hospitals for people around to get easy access to healthcare services. For instance, in November 2020, the largest hospital in Spain was inaugurated in Toledo.
