The global powered air purifying respirator (PAPR) market is anticipated to touch USD 2.38 billion by 2024, according to a report by Grand View Research, Inc. Powered air purifying respirators are devices aimed to reduce workplace injuries and to ensure the well-being of workers. Such type of protective clothing is considered to protect the worker from airborne diseases. Emergences of diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) have led to companies across various industrial sectors to adopt PAPR as a precautionary measure to safeguard health of their employees.
The global market for powered air purifying respirators is expected to gain a windfall during the forecast period (2014 to 2024). High prevalence of breathing disorders is one of the primary drivers for the steady expansion. Rising demand from end-user industries such as chemical, petrochemical, and pharmaceutical industries is projected to augur market growth over the forecast period. Workplace guidelines for the mandatory use of respiratory protective equipment are predicted to keep the market demand steady. On the other hand, low consumer awareness regarding the equipment may hamper market growth.
