Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) Market Global Size Overview, COVID19 Impact, Growth Drivers, Industry Share and Forecast to 2027

January 14, 2021

The global respiratory protective equipment (RPE) market size is projected to reach USD 12.88 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period. Spread of the coronavirus through air route will surge the adoption of RPE throughout 2020, observes Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled “Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, Types By Product (Air Purifying Respirators (APR) {Unpowered Air-Purifying Respirators [Disposable Filtering Half Mask, Half Mask, and Full Face Mask], and Powered Air-Purifying Respirators (PAPR) [Half Mask, Full Face Mask, and Helmets, Hoods & Visors}, and Supplied Air Respirators {Airline Respirators, Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA),Combination SAR/SCBA or APR/SAR}), By End-Use (Industrial, Oil & Gas, Mining, Petrochemical, Construction, Healthcare, Pharmaceuticals, Fire Service), and Regional Forecast, 2020-2027”. In July 2020, scientists from 32 countries provided strong evidence of airborne transmission of the COVID-19 infection in an open letter to the World Health Organization (WHO). The study, led by a team from Peking University in China, found that COVID patients could exhale millions of virus particles per hour, spreading the infection in vast quantities. Previously, the WHO had stated that the virus spread only through respiratory droplets or physical contact. Now, with new evidence pointing toward air transmission of the virus, the demand for respiratory protective equipment is likely to spike, mainly in healthcare facilities, where workers are in constant proximity to coronavirus and other patients.

Extensive Utilization of RPE in Mining Industry to Stoke Growth

Respiratory protective equipment is commonly used by miners owing to the massive health risks involved during mining operations, particularly coal mines. The most widely utilized RPE are powered air-purifying respirators (PAPRs) on account of their high efficacy in filtering out dust particles. These particles are known to cause severe lung disorders in miners who have had prolonged exposure to harmful dust. Such exposure has been known to lead to a common lung condition called pneumoconiosis, or dusty lung, which usually manifest in the form of silicosis and coal miners’ pneumoconiosis (CWP), or black lung. Both these conditions are incurable and invariably lead to premature deaths. Effective RPE can prevent miners from inhaling these toxic dust particles and save them from developing lifelong debilitating health conditions.
