Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Category – Procurement Intelligence

The personal protective equipment (PPE) category is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 6.7% from 2022 to 2030. In 2022, North America accounted for 30% of the market share followed by Europe and APAC. Many small and medium-sized organizations are procuring protective clothing and equipment from low-cost independent manufacturers located in the APAC region. The APAC market is projected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period.

The major cost components are raw materials, equipment and manufacturing, testing and labor, along with facilities and maintenance. However, the overall cost of clothing or any equipment may depend on multiple factors such as customizations, types of raw materials used, quality of the product, the time required for manufacturing, testing, and standards, etc. For instance, reusable PPE clothing will relatively cost more than disposable one. Similarly, non-woven fabrics can be manufactured easily on a large scale and hence tends to be more cost-effective than woven fabrics.

Following the COVID-19 pandemic, India has become a major PPE kit production hub. In 2021, India was the second-largest PPE kits manufacturer – as it produced 200,000 kits and 200,000 N95 masks daily. The textile industries ramped up production to meet the kits demand and the number of companies increased to 1,100. Meltblown fabric manufacturers for N95 masks had also increased to 80. Since 2021, the Indian government has taken numerous initiatives to improve personal protective equipment production in the country such as reducing the licensing facilities and product costs, promoting and boosting manufacturing lines, strengthening local supply chains, and assisting small companies to overcome barriers to production by tying up with technological companies and utilizing MSMEs.


Personal Protective Equipment Sourcing Intelligence Highlights

  • The global personal protective equipment category is highly fragmented, and the balance of PPE sales is highly diversified across many smaller product segments such as head, eye, ear, and face coverings hence top players account for a comparatively smaller portion of the market share


  • Suppliers of hand-protection product sector were mainly held by private companies


  • In the disposal PPE clothing market, the competitive rivalry is high due to increasing government initiatives (India and China) to encourage local garment manufacturers to meet the surging demand
