Global $13.58 Billion Respiratory Protective Equipment Market to 2027

Dublin, Feb. 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Respiratory Protective Equipment Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Product (APR, SAR), by End Use (Oil & Gas, Industrial, Mining, Construction), by Region, and Segment Forecasts, 2020 – 2027” report has been added to’s offering.

The global respiratory protective equipment market size is anticipated to reach USD 13.58 billion by 2027, expanding at a 9.4% CAGR during the forecast period.

Favorable occupational safety regulations focused on ensuring worker safety across various industries are expected to drive the demand for respiratory protective equipment (RPE) over the forecast period.

In addition, factors including rising concerns over exposure to radioactive and toxic air pollutants coupled with increasing instances of infectious biological hazards are anticipated to augment the demand for RPE over the forecast period. Moreover, the recent outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to have a positive impact on the market growth.

Surging demand for N95 respirators, especially from the healthcare sector during the COVID-19 pandemic to avoid infection has led to their shortage owing to which key players such as 3M and Honeywell International, Inc. have ramped up their production capacities and are also expanding their manufacturing facilities to meet the growing demand for N95 respirators.

Technological advancements in terms of features and design of respiratory protective equipment coupled with increasing demand for multi-utility RPE is anticipated to provide ample opportunities for market growth in the forthcoming years. Moreover, lighter weight masks are increasingly being preferred by users who are required to wear respirators for a more extended period of time.
