The global market for protective clothing is anticipated to attain a valuation of USD 16.47 billion by the end of 2028. Furthermore, the report predicts the market to thrive at a healthy CAGR of over 9.51% during the review era.

Protective clothing is any sort of clothing that is specifically created, treated, or customized to protect personnel from threats posed by extreme environmental conditions or a hazardous workplace. Furthermore, the protective clothing market share protects the human body from a variety of external threats, such as gunfire, chemical and biological agents, fire, and knives. In the next years, strict execution of various fire and industrial safety requirements around the globe is likely to fuel market expansion. Over the forecast period, the rising instances of wildfires around the world are also expected to fuel demand for flame-retardant garments.

The epidemic of CoVID-19 has had a significant influence on global demand for and supply of protective apparel. Due to the sharp drop in demand, major end-use industries such as autos and oil and gas have pared back their production facilities and future expansion plans. For example, Nissan Motor stated in May 2020 that one of its two assembly lines in the United States would be shut down. The demand for the protective gear is projected to be hampered shortly as a result of these companies’ survival strategies.
