Increasing Awareness Regarding Need to Ensure Workplace Safety to Escalate Market Growth During 2021-2028

North America Industrial Workwear Market was valued at US$ 2,894.48 million in 2021 and is projected to reach US$ 4,688.00 million by 2028; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.1% from 2021 to 2028.

An industrial workwear is a special protective and functional clothing, which guards wearer from pollution and infection at the workplace as well as protects wearer from several fatalities and industrial hazards caused from chemicals, fires, oil and others.

Rising focus on workers' safety at workplace and the introduction of innovative technologies, such as ultra-lightweight and durable fabrics, in industrial workwear propel the growth of industrial workwear market in North America.

The growing awareness about ensuring workplace safety among employers and employees, majorly in heavy-duty industries such as the construction, mining, and oil & gas, is bolstering the demand for industrial workwear and other protective equipment in the region. There have been several cases of accidents at work in North America across these industries.

According to International Journal for Research in Applied Science & Engineering Technology, construction-related deaths accounted for around 18.17% of fatalities across the US from 2009 to 2018. The use of high visibility apparel is one crucial strategy in lessening the number of "struck-by" deaths on road construction sites.

The US Federal Highway Administration instructs all workers, including emergency responders within the Temporary Traffic Control (TTC) zone, to wear high-visibility safety garments. These garments must meet the Performance Class 2 or 3 requirements of the ANSI/ISEA 107-2004 publication entitled "American National Standard for High-Visibility Safety Apparel and Headwear."

The rising rate of accidents at work has shifted a focus toward employee safety; hence, increasing the demand for industrial workwear. The employers are adopting several standards defined by national and international organizations to ensure the well-being and safety of their employees at workplace.

Industrial workwear is designed to confer protection and comfort to users as well as to help them avoid severe fatalities at workplace, thereby improving the working efficiency of the workers. The functional workwear provides safety and durability while working across diversified industrial bases.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has altered the status of the industrial workwear market in North America. As much as the outbreak has distorted operational efficiency and disrupted the value chains due to the sudden shutdown of national and international boundaries, it has also positively impacted the demand for industrial workwear primarily in healthcare sector.

Rising consciousness toward health and growing awareness related to the protection from microbial infection are propelling the demand for industrial workwear in North America. In addition, the rising importance of protecting both workers and patients from hospital-acquired infections and increasing prevalence of COVID-19 are likely to increase the demand for various industrial workwear such as PPE suits, masks, patient apparels, lab coats & gowns, and scrubs during the forecast period.

Additionally, several companies have come forward to support the aggravating demand for the workwear during the pandemic. Effective measures taken by associations, such as Industrial Fabrics Association International, backed by positive government initiatives to safeguard frontline healthcare workers are expected to generate the demand for industrial workwear in the coming years.

Further, significant investments by prominent companies in the development of advanced products is another factor supporting the market growth. For instance, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ansell Limited is working with governments and health organizations worldwide to ensure the manufacturing and supply of unrestricted personal protective equipment (PPE). The company expanded its production capacity of protective products critical to healthcare workers and other essential industries with the necessary support of local authorities.

Ansell Limited; Honeywell International Inc.; Lakeland Industries, Inc.; VF Corporation; and Aramark are among the well-established players in the North America industrial workwear market.

Companies in this market adopt strategies such as product developments, plant expansions, and mergers and acquisitions to expand their footprint worldwide.
