Face Shield Market Research, 2031

The global face shield market was valued at $1.3 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $2.4 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2022 to 2031.

Face shield is a personal protective equipment (PPE) that is used to protect the wearer’s entire face of its parts from hazards such as road debris and flying objects, splashes, and other potentially infectious materials. It finds application in a wide range of end-use industries including medical, automotive, aerospace, manufacturing industries, oil & gas, construction, marine, and others.

Face Shield Market

The growth of the global face shield market is driven by increase in demand for healthcare sectors wherein face shields are widely used for hazard protection activities. In addition, rise in demand for both residential & commercial facilities have surged the growth of construction sector, which in turn has escalated the demand for face shields used to protect from optical radiation produced during cutting, welding, and other activities. This is projected to foster the demand for face shield market during the forecast period.

Furthermore, increasing demand for consumer goods has surged the establishment of chemical manufacturing facilities in both developed and developing economies where face shields are widely used to protect from the exposure of hazardous and toxic chemicals, fumes, and other harmful gases. This may act as one of the key drivers responsible for the growth of the face shield market in the growing manufacturing sector. Furthermore, agencies such as Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), European Union, and others have mandated the use of full-face shields in industries dealing with harmful chemicals. This has surged the popularity of face shields among several end-use sectors; thus, fueling the market growth.

However, face shields are manufactured with the combination of a variety of materials such as polycarbonate, acetate, polyethylene terephthalate glycol, and others. These polymers are derived from crude oil which is a highly volatile commodity in terms of prices. Thus, the volatility in prices of crude oil indirectly affects the prices of face shields. This factor is anticipated to hamper the growth of the face shield market during the forecast period.

On the contrary, increase in awareness for safe working activities has led the customer to become more linear toward using safety products in both developed and developing economies. The emergence of reusable face shields has surged the potential applications of face shields among several end-use sectors. Furthermore, these are better for environment as they don’t litter streets and end up in dustbins. Furthermore, key manufacturers such as Printex Transparent Packaging, Casoc Bay Molding, and others are actively engaged in producing eco-friendly reusable face shields. This is anticipated to increase the sales of reusable face shields; thus, creating lucrative opportunities for the market.

The face shield market is segmented into type, product type and end-use industry, and region. On the basis of type, the market is bifurcated into disposable and reusable. By product, the market is classified into half face shield and full face shield. Depending on end-use industry, it is fragmented into healthcare, manufacturing, construction, and others. Region-wise, the market is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

The leading players operating in the global face shield market include Alpha Pro Tech, Casoc Bay Molding, HONEYWELL INTERNATIONAL Inc, JBC Technologies, Inc., Karam Industries Pvt Ltd., Key Surgical, Kimberly-Clark Worldwide, Inc., Lakeland Inc., Medline Industries, LP., Precept Medical Products, Inc., Printex Transparent Packaging, Pyramex, Sanax Protective Products, The 3M Company, and Vee Protect.

Face Shield Market by Type

By type, reusable segment dominated the global market in 2021, and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.7% during forecast period. This is attributed to the fact that there are certain advantages associated with the use of reusable face shields such as their eco-friendly nature, inexpensiveness, and easy availability that has made customers become more linear toward using reusable face shields. Furthermore, the major end-users of reusable face shields include oil & gas sector, automotive sector, chemical manufacturing sector, and others that hold a major share of the reusable face shield market. These factors may augment the growth of the reusable face shield in the global face shield market.

Face Shield Market by Product Type

By product, the full face shield segment dominated the global market in 2021, and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.6% during forecast period. This is attributed to the fact that full face shields come with both adjustable and fixed visor. They are mostly used by doctors, nurses, medical staff, workers, and armed forces for overall protection from germs, viruses, bacteria, hazardous chemicals, and others. Full face shields find application in sectors including construction, medical, chemical industries, oil & gas, and others.

Face Shield Market by End-use Industry

In 2021, the manufacturing segment was the largest revenue generator, and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period. This is attributed to increasing demand for consumer goods has surged the establishment of chemical manufacturing facilities in both developed and developing economies where face shields are widely used to protect from the exposure of hazardous and toxic chemicals, fumes, and other harmful gases. This may act as one of the key drivers responsible for the growth of the face shield market in the growing manufacturing sector. Furthermore, agencies such as Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), European Union, and others have mandated the use of full face shields in industries dealing with harmful chemicals. This has surged the popularity of face shields among several end-use sectors; thus, fueling the market growth.

Face Shield Market by Region

The Asia-Pacific face shield market size is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 9.9% during the forecast period and accounted for 43.8% of the face shield market share in 2021. This is attributed to the fact that China's industrial sector is increasing rapidly, which in turn has enhanced the performance of the face shield market in the region. According to a report published by the United Nations Statistics Division, China witnessed around 28.7% of the global manufacturing output for consumer goods in 2019. Also, countries such as India and Australia are witnessing a rapid increase in automotive sectors where face shield are used as protective equipment for protecting eyes from optical radiation produced during metal cutting and finishing activities. For instance, according to a report published by the National Investment Promotion and Facilitation Agency of India, the automotive sector in India is expected to be the world's third-largest automotive market in terms of volume by 2030.
