SBI estimates the market for personal protective gear in the U.S. at $2.9 Billion, with the major end-user market for protective gear in the manufacturing, construction, transport and utilities, and public safety segments.

While consolidation has been a key feature of the industry, protective gear marketers view the growing share of Chinese products among U.S. imports as one of the most threatening features -- not only at the product level, but also at the market level. In addition, outsourcing of manufacturing jobs to low-cost countries, such as China, had reduced the number of U.S. manufacturing workers, which has reduced the target market for protective gear manufacturers.

The U.S. Market for Personal Protective Gear, a new SBI report, provides an in-depth analysis of various products and manufacturers in the U.S. personal protective gear market. The report covers personal protective gear based on its utility. The report contains comprehensive data on U.S. shipments, imports and exports, end-use markets, purchaser demographics and the competitive environment. It also identifies key issues, regulations and trends affecting the marketplace, profiles major marketers, along with manufacturer and retailer strategies used to maximize growth and profitability.

Report Methodology The Simmons Market Research Bureau (SMRB) provides the primary research data on consumer buying habits as they affect the personal protective gear category for home consumer use. The SMRB Spring 2005 survey is based on a sample of 24,686 U.S. respondents includes data on customer attitudes in selecting protective gears. Secondary research data has been obtained from government sources, trade association publications, business journals, company literature and investment reports.
