Market Overview

Enhanced Awareness of its Benefits Supports Steady Adoption of PPE

The Southern African personal protective equipment (PPE) market has not yet matured due to the slack implementation of legislation related to the proper and correct usage of PPE in the workplace. However, enhanced awareness about safety in the mining and manufacturing sectors will drive the expansion of the PPE market in Southern Africa. “Greater awareness about health and safety in the workplace is the main driver of the Southern African PPE market,” notes the analyst of this research. “This has led to a reduction in the number of incidents in the workplace, supporting increased production.”

Although there are no consistent site visits to ensure the correct and permanent use of PPE is practiced, when these random checks are conducted, companies face fines and possible closure. Therefore, expanded and proper use of PPE is practiced in the workplace. The focus on workplace safety is intensifying worldwide, compelling multinationals and larger companies in the mining and industrial sectors to adhere to these practices. As awareness grows, smaller, local companies are also ensuring proper deployment of PPE for their employees.

End-user Education Key to Maintaining Market Expansion

Most PPE is imported and, as a result, faces unstable exchange rates. The presence of cheaper imports also adds to the challenges facing market participants. This situation enables end users to have greater bargaining power, intensify price pressures on market participants and cause profit margins to be squeezed. “A major challenge, apart from the inconsistent implementation of legislation on PPE use, is the presence of cheaper, lower graded imports,” explains the analyst. “Most local companies tend to choose cheaper PPE products, irrespective of their quality, over more expensive, better quality products.”

Providing end-user markets and their employees with the relevant training on workplace safety will boost demand for PPE. Market participants should highlight the importance of correct and permanent use of good quality PPE in the workplace by raising awareness about their benefits. “PPE manufacturers need to offer extra services to their customers, such as providing training and advice on the best PPE available,” says the analyst. “Demonstrations and workshops aimed at educating end-users will also help expand the client base and boost revenues.”
