Trends

•The oil and gas industry remains an important global end user of PPE because of high safety concerns involved in activities in the upstream and downstream sectors.
•The PPE market is highly fragmented, with many participants in the different product markets.
•Recently, the industrial markets for PPE have been impacted by the economic recession in terms of delayed product replacements, which is in line with decreased spending activities.
•The booming oil and gas industry, however, has rendered the oil and gas industry one of the least affected markets for PPE during the recession.
•Moreover, the oil and gas industry observes high compliance for PPE use. According to data from American Petroleum Institute (API) in 2011, the rate of job-related injuries and illnesses for the US oil and natural gas industry was Xper X full-time workers compared to a rate of X for the entire US private sector.
•Most oil and gas companies provide PPE to employees, and companies tend to place bulk orders with distributors. Distributors have an exclusive contract with oil and gas companies to supply PPE per their requirement.
•The oil and gas industry has a small section of the market where employees are provided with allowances; therefore, employees tend to buy their own PPE. Consequently, the PPE market experiences online sales and direct sales from retail outlets, which accounts for a small market share.
