Healthcare Personal Protective Equipment Market Outlook - 2027

The global healthcare PPE market was valued at $12.9 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $33.4 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 12.4% from 2020 to 2027.

Personal protective equipment (PPEs) are protective gears designed to safeguard the health of workers by minimizing the exposure to a biological agent. Basic components of a PPE are goggles, face-shield, mask, gloves, coverall/gowns (with or without aprons), head cover, and shoe cover. These special equipment create a barrier between the personnel and germs often found in the medical environments. The barrier blocks the transmission of contaminants from blood, body fluids, or respiratory secretions. Though it is mainly used by doctors, nurses, and cleanroom workers; it is also worn by patients to control the spread of germs at the source.

Stringent regulatory framework in the healthcare sector and construction of new healthcare projects are some of the factors that drive the growth of the global healthcare PPE market. 

Health ministries have implemented stringent regulations for the health and safety of the healthcare professionals for the adequate availability, allocation, usage, and disposal of PPEs. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the World Health Organization (WHO) are some of the agencies that issue proper guidelines and frameworks for the healthcare professionals. Moreover, countries around the world are increasing the share of GDP on the healthcare expenditure to provide better facilities to its citizens. Both public as well as private players are investing in new hospitals, in-home healthcare services, and primary healthcare centers. This is expected to create new consumers for PPE, contributing to the growth of the global healthcare PPE market. Moreover, growth in population, increase in preference for value-based healthcare services, and easy availability of healthcare insurance benefits are some of the other factors expected to drive the global healthcare PPE market growth. In most of the countries in Europe and Asia, health insurances are mandatory. Nowadays, young people with good income are attracted toward the health insurances, as insurers offer contracts with more extensive ranges of services and lower premiums. People with health insurance are more likely to visit hospitals for diagnosis or treatment, and further follow-ups. People without a good health insurance are likely to spend more; hence, avoid the follow-up on the treatment. 

However, healthcare PPE such as disposable surgical masks, exam gloves, coveralls, gowns, hand sleeves, aprons, and shoe covers are mainly made up of plastic materials such as polypropylene. Failure to systematically dispose PPE is likely to increase the plastic pollution and stringent regulation on the use of PPE in the healthcare industry. Hence, non-regulated disposals can increase the risk of infection, especially during epidemics or pandemics. This factor is likely to hamper the global healthcare PPE market size. On the contrary, development of healthcare PPEs from bio-based materials will cancel out the environmental impact of current PPE. In an effort to create sustainability, new PPE producers have collaborated with biological experts to develop PPE made from bio-based materials. Japan-based Bioworks Co. Ltd. has designed a washable and reusable antibacterial face mask made of biomass-based yarn also termed as PLA (Poly Lactic Acid). It is made of biomass resources such as corn starch and biodegrades in industrial compost environments. In addition, increase in the efficiency of existing PPEs will lead to its improvised versions; thus, replacing them. Such factors are likely to offer lucrative opportunities for the global market growth. 

The report segments the global healthcare PPE market on the basis of product, end user, and region. On the basis of product, the global healthcare PPE market is segmented into protective clothing, face protection, eye protection, respiratory protection, hand protection, and others. Protective clothing is further fragmented into coveralls, gowns, and others; respiratory protection segment is segmented into surgical masks, respirator masks, and others. On the basis of hand protection, the market is bifurcated into disposable gloves and durable gloves. The end users of healthcare PPE are hospital, home healthcare, outpatient/primary care facilities, and others. Region wise, the healthcare PPE market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. 

The key players in the global healthcare PPE market are Ansell Limited, Med-Con Pty Ltd., Cantel Medical Corporation, DuPont de Nemours Inc., 3M Company, Cardinal Health, Honeywell International Inc., Owens & Minor Inc., Medisca Pharmaceutique Inc., and Medline Industries Inc. These players have adopted business expansions, product launches, and acquisitions as a medium to expand their market presence.
