Research and Markets: Analysis of the Personal Protective Equipment Market in Australia and New Zealand 2015-2021

By Business Wire News   


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Analysis of the Personal Protective Equipment Market in Australia and New Zealand” report to their offering.

The total personal protective equipment (PPE) market will experience a drastic slow down between 2012 and 2014 due the decline in one of the key end-user sectors – mining. Nevertheless, the robust growth in construction sector, especially in residential construction, is expected to sustain demand from 2015 to 2021. Niche PPE suppliers that cater to specialised PPE markets have gained market share.

In this challenging environment where organic growth is subdued, competitors are compelled to explore different channels to realise growth, such as value chain extension, mergers and acquisitions, and product range expansions.

The Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) personal protective equipment (PPE) market is a mature market that is currently negatively impacted by the slow down in growth across key end-use sectors such as mining and manufacturing in Australia (with New Zealand presenting slightly more favourable levels of activity). However, improved activity in construction, oil and gas, and forestry sectors is expected to sustain market revenue growth over the forecast period.

A stringent regulatory framework makes this market among the most advanced in the world in terms of adopting the latest products that offer optimum protection. This strong compliance framework is expected to be the single biggest driver of market growth moving forward.

Competition is fierce among leading international suppliers (e.g., 3M, Honeywell, MSA), local manufacturers (e.g., Protector Alsafe, ProChoice), distributors turned private label manufacturing (e.g., Blackwoods and Elliott), and niche local suppliers (e.g., PerformanceOnHand, Global Safety Solutions & Management).
