Demand for safety gloves increasingPosted on 15/04/2009
An increasing demand for safety gloves is boosting sales of personal protective equipment (PPE), a new report reveals.
The study, by Research and Markets, finds that sales of construction-related PPE, such as safety gloves, are rising in response to tighter safety regulations.
Greater focus on employee health and safety in the workplace is said to be driving demand.
The study also shows that the US is the leading importer of safety equipment while China is the world's largest exporter.
Demand for PPE is said to be stemming from diverse industries, including the medical sector and food sectors.
Meanwhile, the female market for PPE 'shows potential to grow' as demand currently stands higher than supply.
Research and Markets is a leading source of market research, having compiled more than 380,000 reports into areas like business and finance, energy and transport, and healthcare.
