Top 12 Vendors in the Global High-visibility Clothing Market from 2016 to 2020: Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top 12 leading vendors in their recent global high-visibility clothing market report. The vendors are identified based on their revenue and market dominance in terms of experience, geographical presence, product portfolio, financials, and R&D.

The market for high-visibility clothing is witnessing a surge in demand as various government and regulatory bodies across the world have made mandatory regulations regarding the use of high-visibility clothing in industries such as chemicals, transportation and logistics to assure workers' safety and security on worksites. Regulatory authorities such as OSHA also mandates the use of PPE such as safety apparel in various industries where workers are in high-risk hazardous worksites.

Competitive vendor landscape

Although the global high-visibility clothing 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, Ansell, and Lakeland Industries. The R&D facilities and investments by the market leaders ensure that product innovation is given top priority.

“Although the top-four vendors cater to the majority of the market, private labels are also introducing high-visibility clothing at lower price points in an attempt to use sales volumes to gain market share. This has led to the entry of several new players in the global high-visibility clothing market,” says Abhay Sinha, a lead research analyst from Technavio.

Vendors are using advanced materials and processing technologies to manufacture high-performance products. Apart from performance- and comfort-enhancing designs, vendors are focusing increasingly on product innovation to gain a competitive advantage over its competitors. The low degree of product differentiation has led to price wars.
