Renewable energy

The global gas masks market is currently valued at more than USD 4 billion and is expected to reach almost USD 6 billion by 2021, says Technavio.

Technavio has announced its latest market research report on the global gas masks market, under its power portfolio. This market analysis discusses the major drivers and key emerging trends and offers an analysis of key vendors like 3M, Honeywell, Avon Protection Systems, and MSA Safety.

According to Thanikachalam Chandrasekaran, a lead analyst for power research at Technavio, “Manufacturing industries such as paper mills, wood sawmills, textile mills, metal fabrication, oil and gas, and food processing plants involve the risk of minute particles, fumes, smoke, and toxic gases. Workers in these industries are constantly exposed to toxic hazards. As a result, manufacturing industries are increasingly adopting gas masks.

Industries such as coal mining, oil and gas, and textiles use thousands of chemicals that have toxic effects on the human body. Exposure to these chemicals and gases can be injurious to the health of workers. To prevent such health hazards, employers are providing various types of gas masks to reduce the risk of exposure.

Demand from first responders

First responders include firefighters, police officers, and rescuers who work in hazardous conditions. This necessitates the use of gas masks that can offer clean and purified air along with protection from inhalation of toxic gases, vapors, and smoke. Gas masks, especially SCBA, are in high demand from the first responder. Technavio’s industry analysts anticipate the trend to continue through the forecast period.

Focus on multi-functional cartridges

Cartridges have specific functions and cannot be used in all environments. Various types of cartridges are available for different types of air contaminants. Various manufacturers are now focusing on offering cartridges that are suitable for all types of facepieces and various combinations of gases. The ability to integrate such multi-functional cartridges with any facepiece from the same manufacturer is likely to propel the demand for gas masks in the global market over the next four years.
