SE Asias PPE market on the up, safety gloves users learnPosted on 27/08/2010
South-east Asia's personal protective equipment (PPE) market could see even greater revenues in the coming years, safety gloves users have learned.
According to Frost & Sullivan, by the year 2015 the market could witness revenues as high as $1.36 billion.
The firm suggests that multinational businesses are driving demand for PPE in the area by setting up operations in countries such as Indonesia.
Deepan Kannan K, an industry analyst at the company, has noted the recent growth of industrial activity in south-east Asia.
They stated: 'Many countries are expected to record significant year-on-year increase[s] in their labour force in the manufacturing sector during the forecast period, driving the growth of the total Asia Pacific PPE market.'
Last year saw revenues in the south-east Asian PPE market reach $992.8 million, Frost & Sullivan continued.
In the UK, the Health and Safety Executive is the watchdog responsible for ensuring high standards of workplace safety are met by employers, which may require the use of PPE.
