Personal protective equipment, or PPE, are clothing or equipment, designed to provide protection from the risk of accidents, and injury on or off the workplace. Even where engineering controls and safety systems have been applied, some hazards might remain. Personal protective equipment provides protection against, physical, electrical, heat, chemicals, biohazards, airborne particulate matter, and countless other possibly hazardous situations.
Stringent regulations laid by the government and implementation of advanced legislations at workplace to protect workers from hazardous situations coupled with increased awareness among workers regarding safety precautions have led to the higher utilization of PPE. Industries such as construction, manufacturing, oil & gas, healthcare, and others continue to show positive annual dynamics. Several new building and construction work and infrastructure upgrade projects have been started in recent years in the UAE, which is anticipated to boost the application of PPE in the construction sector. Robust infrastructure, strategic location, and significant subsidies for manufacturers have led the UAE government to invest heavily in the manufacturing sector thereby making it one of the highest contributors to the country’s economy. Along with the manufacturing of petrochemical products, UAE has become an important producer of metals, such as aluminum & steel and building materials, which includes cement, ceramics, and glass. It has emerged as a manufacturer of pharmaceuticals, food & beverages, and a wide variety of consumer goods. Moreover, it has a growing aerospace & defense manufacturing sector. Thus, growth in manufacturing sector of UAE is anticipated to create new opportunities for the PPE manufacturers; thereby, driving the market growth.
However, job displacement from labor-intensive industries in UAE has been taking place for several decades, as the countries adopt automation across various industries as a step toward higher value-added activities and services. Thus, job cut due to automation in labor-intensive industries in UAE is projected to hamper the growth of the PPE market.
