The powered air purifying respirator market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.15% during the forecast period 2020 2025. This research study systematically analyzes the historical trends with the current trends related to the demand, supply, in addition to the recent developments. Major drivers, restraints, and opportunities have been also covered to provide an exhaustive picture of the market.
A PAPR (powered air-purifying respirator) is a type of respirator that protects workers from contaminated air. PAPRs are made up of headgear and fan assembly that takes ambient air that has been infected with one or more types of pollutant or pathogen, actively eliminates (filters) a sufficient proportion of these dangers, and then provides the clean air to the user's face, mouth, and nose. Filtering facepiece respirators, like N95 masks, have a lower assigned protection factor. Positive-pressure masks, blower units, and simply blowers are used to describe PAPRs. Occupational safety laws mainly drive the PAPR market. The demand for powered air purifying respirators is likely caused by regulatory rules requiring organizations to ensure worker safety in industries. The sort of powered air purifying respirator necessary for protection during various industrial or commercial procedures is specified in these standards. Companies must supply PAPR to employees who may be exposed to health or safety concerns at work, as per the Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations (1992) in the United Kingdom. The industry growth is expected to be driven by the emergence of various infectious biohazards and the recent outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the pandemic, the use of these products by doctors and healthcare workers has increased as they offer maximum protection from coronavirus as compared to reusable elastomeric half-face piece respirators and N95 FFRs. From the beginning of 2021, all the business started their operations normally, due to which, the demand for powered air purifying respirator (PAPR) increased from various industries, such as oil & gas, petrochemical, industrial, and others. North America is expected to be the largest PAPR market. Product demand is likely to increase due to the expansion of businesses such as oil and gas, chemicals, and manufacturing, particularly in Canada. A growing number of large-scale infrastructure investments, including hotels and medical hospital projects in New York, Missouri, and Los Angeles, are expected to drive the market. Growing demand for floor space expansion in various industries has led to an increase in construction and renovation projects in the country. Thus, the growing construction industry is expected to have a positive impact on product demand. The healthcare industry faces several fundamental issues, including a failure to recognize clinical urgency, a lack of information, and a lack of oversight. Due to their constant interaction with patients in hospitals and healthcare facilities, healthcare workers are more likely to become infected. Poor infection control methods and low levels of compliance with standard precautions provided by health and safety regulatory organizations exacerbate the danger of infectious disease transmission. The post-pandemic phase will be significant for the global powered air purifying respirator market growth. The recovery can be hindered by supply chain disruptions, which will affect the market dynamics and the prices of the product. Furthermore, distribution and transportation capabilities restrictions, unfavourable financial conditions, and ascended expenses will challenge the global market. Also, limited production, support operations, labor shortages, and constraints for other end-user sectors, suppliers, and vendors may fail to meet the consumer demand. The recovery will be challenging for the global powered air purifying respirator market.
The COVID-19 virus, caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, is a highly contagious pathogen that causes deadly respiratory diseases, making it a severe public health problem. Since there was no vaccination available for this virus, countermeasures rely on slowing or blocking transmission from person to person. Also, there is a growing attempt to restrict or prevent transmission to healthcare workers and first responders actively dealing with the pandemic. As a result, various regulatory and government bodies worldwide have advocated the use of adequate PPE to prevent the virus from spreading. As a result, the need for PAPR in the healthcare industry is likely to rise.
