SBI estimates the U.S. market for personal protective equipment (PPE) reached $6.4 billion in 2007 rising seven percent over 2006. However, there is danger of slower growth in coming years. PPE manufacturers may see slower sales growth or downright slower sales if there is a worldwide economic slowdown either in sympathy with or as a direct result of the slowdown in the U.S. economy. Still, factors closer to home may help offset this potential slowdown. OSHA’s recent employer PPE purchase mandate, needs of an aging workforce and convergent product innovation ranging from comfort to communication may stoke sales through any economic difficulties.

These products are designed to protect users from occupational hazards, injuries and illnesses. Categories covered include:

  • Body Protection and Protective Clothing
  • Hand and Foot Protection
  • Head and Face Protection
