The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is emergence of anti-fogging laser protective eyewear. The problem of lens fogging occurs when the temperature on the outside of the lens is lower than that on the inside (this warmth is created by the heat generated from the human body). Such fogging obscures vision and potentially negates the benefits of protective eyewear, which are then removed by the wearer for clearing the fog on the lens. Such instances of removal, whether for a few seconds or minutes, make the wearer prone to potential eye injuries. Therefore, laser protective eyewear with anti-fogging characteristics is gaining popularity in the market.
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is rising damaging effects of laser radiation on eyes. The growth of the global laser protective eyewear market will be driven by increasing laser radiation damages to the eyes due to the workforce being exposed extensively to laser beams across various industries. Manufacturing, healthcare, and various other industries involve activities that can directly cause harm to the eyes.
