High susceptibility to injuries in the food processing industry: a major market driver
The workers are highly susceptible to injuries in the food processing industry. Several injuries to the workers are caused due to the frequent contact with knives and other dangerous cutting machinery, bacteria, and high temperatures in the industry. Food regulations are becoming more stringent every day as the food industry accounts for over 16% of all manufacturing injuries.
PPE, therefore, is more important than ever in the food processing sector. As a majority of food handling operations are manual, efficient protection is imperative. The lack of adherence to OSHA standards results in penalties being levied on food processing manufacturers. For instance, in 2015, at Schwan food processing facility three workers suffered amputation and serious injuries in different incidents.

EMEA: largest PPE market for food processing industry
Processed vegetables are preferred by consumers in Europe, thereby boosting the demand for processed vegetables. As they are processed immediately after harvesting, the marketing strategy adopted for frozen products is that they contain more nutrients than fresh vegetables. The increase in the demand for processed foods will lead to increased demand for PPE for workers in food processing manufacturing facilities.
Fears over the safety of food among manufacturers, consumers, and regulatory bodies has increased due to the outbreak of foodborne diseases in Europe. The number of people suffering from foodborne zoonotic diseases in Europe is increasing. The lack or non-use of appropriate PPE is the cause of certain foodborne diseases.
According to Neelesh Prakash Singh, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on power, “Several food safety regulations that specify the maximum limit of contaminants that may put consumer health in jeopardy is being introduced by the European Food Safety Authority, a European government agency. The use of appropriate PPE by the workers in the food processing industries during various processes is required to control these contaminants.”
