Head, eye, and face protection
“Head, eye, and face protection equipment occupied a majority 22% of the global market and is expected to continue its dominance through the forecast period. The major types of head, eye, and face protection equipment include safety spectacles, face shields, hard hats, welding shields, and bump caps,” says Neelesh Prakash Singh, a lead analyst at Technavio for power research.
The vendors in the market are currently exploring various material technologies to optimize weight, comfort, and performance of PPE gear. For instance, vendors of safety eyewear are incorporating cushioned materials at all points of contact, in addition to offering products with soft material-based nosepieces for enhanced comfort.
Workers in the oil and gas industry are exposed to various respiratory threats, including exposure to hydrogen sulfide, mercury vapor, silica, and drilling fluid. Employers ensure that all the workers on the floor are equipped with OSHA- and NIOSH-compliant respirators to minimize the impact of such harmful chemicals. These respirators and masks effectively filter out chemicals and other contaminants and provide a supply of clean breathing air to the wearers. The fall in oil prices has led to its increased demand, which is positively impacting the respiratory protection market.
“The fall protection segment of the market is expected to be worth USD 1.7 billion by 2021, driven by the need to protect workers working on access platforms and equipment located high above the ground,” says Neelesh.
Working from a height poses fall hazards, such as climbing and working from derrick, unprotected sides and edges, and uneven working surfaces. Various organizations including OSHA, have constantly been introducing reforms to reduce occupational hazards caused by falls, trips, and slips, which is positively impacting the growth of fall protection PPE gear.
