Top 9 Vendors in the Personal Protective Equipment Market From 2016 to 2020: Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top nine leading vendors in their recent global personal protective equipment (PPE) market report. To calculate the market size of the global PPE market, the report considers revenue generated from the sales of PPE for different applications.

Construction is one of the main end-user industries of PPE. In order to support increased urbanization, stakeholders are increasing the construction of high-rise buildings. High-rise buildings are multi-story buildings that are 35-100 meters tall or have 12-39 floors. The number of high-rise buildings in APAC represents 76% of the total number of high-rise buildings in the world.

Competitive vendor landscape

Although the global PPE market is partially fragmented with the presence of several small-and-medium-sized players, the market is dominated by established manufacturers such as 3M, Honeywell, and Ansell. The market leaders prioritize product innovation by focusing on R&D facilities and investments. Although the top nine vendors cater to the majority of the market, private labels are launching PPE at lower price points to use sales volumes to gain market share. Several new entrants in the global PPE market are limited to producing PPE that requires low technical knowledge and expertise.

Vendors are employing advanced material and processing technologies to offer high-performance products. Apart from performance and comfort-enhancing designs, vendors are focusing increasingly on developing products that are appealing to style-conscious users,” says Abhay Sinha, one of the lead analysts from Technavio.

Each of the top nine vendors leads specific segments of the global PPE market through expertise. In a product category like PPE, which has a long product life cycle, vendors need to differentiate products in terms of quality, functionality, or price.
