SA protective gloves market to see future growth?
The market for personal protective equipment (PPE), such as protective gloves, in South Africa may witness growth in the coming years, research suggests.
Produced by Frost & Sullivan, the South African Personal Protective Equipment Market study claims that by the year 2015, revenues could increase to a level as high as $814.7 million in the country.
Naasir Roomanay, a research analyst at the organisation, commented that new development projects in South Africa may lead to a greater focus on PPE.
They said: 'The positive outlook of suppliers shows how well the market is performing despite the economic crisis.
'While some suppliers have witnessed tremendous declines in sales, many look forward to upcoming opportunities.'
Meanwhile, in the UK, the country's Health and Safety Executive is calling on farmers in the Fife area of Scotland to take part in a Agriculture Safety and Health Awareness Day.
Users of PPE may be interested to note that the event will deal with issues like manual handling.
