Technavio Announces Top Six Vendors in the Global Foot Protective Equipment Market from 2015 to 2019

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top six leading vendors in their recent global foot protective equipment (FPE) market report. This research report also lists seven other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global FPE market is partially fragmented due to the presence of several small and medium-sized players. However, the market is dominated by established manufacturers who are giving top priority to product innovation.

Although the majority of the market is catered to by these top six vendors, there are private labels launching their protective equipment at lower prices to provide inexpensive alternatives to the slightly more expensive branded equipment in an attempt to use sales volume to gain market share. This has led to the entry of several new players into the global FPE market, but these new vendors are limited to producing equipment that requires low technical knowledge and expertise.

“In a product category like foot protective equipment, where a repeat purchase may not happen for several years, the best differentiating factor is either quality, functionality or price, says Mukesh Chandra Anchuri, industry expert for personal protective equipment at Technavio.
