As per the report, the Asia-pacific Disposable Protective Clothing Market generated revenue of $1,217.3 million in 2020 and is set to experience further growth at a CAGR of 6.4% from 2021-2028. In 2018, China was one of the largest exporters of PPE until the pandemic which started towards the end of 2019 leading to a dip in their exports. The production output in India increased exponentially to keep up with the surge of COVID cases. This requirement is predicted to lead to the rapid growth of the global market in the analysis period.
By type, the polyethylene sub-segment is predicted to garner a revenue of $2,511.1 million by 2028 rising from $1,470.4 million in 2020. Polyethylene has various properties such as durability which allows it to be resistant towards acids, bases, and alcohol. These factors are expected to further ensure the growth of the segment in the forecast period.
By application, the chemical sub-segment is set to garner a significant revenue of $1,769.8 million by 2028. This is due to an increase in the usage of disposable protective clothing market within oil and gas industry. This is anticipated to assist in the growth of the sub-segment in the analysis period.
By end use, the healthcare sub-segment is expected to witness a rise in revenue from $1,376.9 million in 2020 to over $2,360.0 million by 2028. The increasing cases of coronavirus drove the sector to implement guidelines which asked professional to wear PPE kits. This was done primarily to limit the spread of the coronavirus further.
Disposable protective clothing is found in sets of loosefitting pieces of sleeves, full leggings, footwear covers. The rise in coronavirus cases led to a substantial demand for PPE kits due to which individual sewers also received contracts to produce additional disposable protective clothing. These initiatives are expected to add to the rapid growth of the market.
On the contrary, extensive use of these disposable kits is also damaging the environment. The process of properly disposing these clothing items uses an incinerator that works fossil fuels resulting in excessive carbon emissions. The above-mentioned factors are hence limiting the development of the market.
But healthcare professionals today have been used to using two pairs of gloves while handling the patients as recommended by the World Health Organization. This is to ensure redundancy in case the first pair faces damage either from disinfectants or from needle stick injuries. The guidelines are expected to provide growth opportunities for the market in the analysis period by protecting the healthcare professionals.
