Product technology differentiation and increasing service offerings will be vital for success in a mature, competitive market,finds Frost & Sullivan’s Visionary Science Team

fireFrost & Sullivan’s latest analysis, Western European Respiratory Protection Equipment Market, Forecast to 2022, reveals that while growing demand from end users for higher performance, protection, and technology integration is poised to ignite new growth opportunities, an uptick in manufacturing and construction industries across key Western European countries is expected to spur sales of respiratory protection equipment such as disposables and PAPR.

“Apart from comfort and technology, data is increasingly becoming the most sought after by end users,” said Hrishikesh Vikas Dhatrak, Research Analyst, Visionary Science, Frost & Sullivan. “Therefore, it will be critical for respiratory protection equipment companies to identify ways that they can integrate this aspect into their product development and business strategies for the future.”

To gain an advantage in a mature and highly competitive market, Dhatrak recommends manufacturers tap into markets showing signs of recovery and focus on differentiating their product technology, portability, ease of use, and service offerings to shift users to higher levels of respiratory protection.

Key trends creating growth opportunities in the market include:

  • Strong adoption of high-end, premium firefighter PPE in Germany, Sweden, and Finland
  • Enforcement of new PPE directive and ISO regulations supporting the demand for respiratory protection across end use industries
  • Integrating remote monitoring, location tracking, and sensors with data analytics and communication technology

“Companies active in Western Europe will need to invest in end user training to understand the contrasts between different levels of protection and empower them to choose best-fit solutions,” noted Dhatrak.
