DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "North American Above-the-neck Personal Protective Equipment Market, Forecast to 2022" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
Commoditization has characterized the North American above-the-neck PPE market. Growth in the market has been somewhat offset by reduced demand from key sectors such as manufacturing and oil & gas. Growth in the overall market is likely to hinge upon the strength of the overall economy and outlook for the oil & gas sector.
The fastest growing segments are likely to include eye protection, face protection followed by head and hearing protection. New product innovation is likely to be limited to eye and face protection--this is likely to give a fillip to sales. Leading incumbents such as 3M and Honeywell are likely to continue to dominate the above-the-neck PPE market due to strong product portfolios, presence of significant buffers against macro headwinds and high penetration rates of the installed base.
Going forward, increased stratification is expected to continue with low-end commoditized products driving unit volume growth and niche products driving average selling price. Market acceptance for smart PPE is likely in the early stages--price points have to come down for products to gain higher rates of traction in the market.
High-risk industries such as oil & gas are likely to afford significant growth opportunities as regulatory bodies are shoring up their safety practices. Consolidation is expected to continue during the forecast period as the above-the-neck PPE market continues to be very fragmented.
