The protective clothing market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.0% over the next five years to reach $8 billion by 2018. Asia-Pacific, with its flourishing economy and rapidly expanding industrial sectors, is an emerging market and will experience the second-highest growth in demand during 2013 to 2018, after North America.

The major driving factors of this market are stringent regulatory requirements related to employees/workers' safety in end-user industries which enforce many industrial workers to wear protective clothing in risky and hazardous working environments. The other growth driver is industrial development in the emerging economies leading to rising employment rate in the developing countries which directly pushes the demand for safety clothing. Increasing concern over the safety of workers by companies owing to the high cost involved in workplace accidents such as medical cost, compensation, loss of productive hours, etc. are also driving its demand.

Upcoming opportunities such as use of phase change materials in the fabrics of protective apparel show a promising growth for this global market. This will enhance the protective attribute of the thermal protective apparel compared to current materials. Many industrial work environments require multifunctional protective clothing in case of exposure to more than one hazard. Multifunctionality is the growing trend in this global market.
