Protective Gloves and Clothing Lead the Market in Adoption of Green Materials Globally

With increasing green awareness across all businesses and consumer groups, consumers are looking for different ways to decrease the carbon footprint. With this trend quickly gaining pace in many heavy and light industry sectors, green materials in PPE are increasingly gaining adoption. This study provides an insight into opportunities for green materials in the PPE market. The study includes analysis of different kinds of green materials used in PPE products such as above-the-neck protection, respiratory protection, hand protection, protective apparel, foot protection, fall protection, and gas detectors.

Market Overview
-This private market insight offers an overview of the opportunities for green materials in different personal protective equipment (PPE) markets.
-Sustainability is one of the important Mega Trends that is influencing significant changes in the chemicals and materials industry. In a drive towards reducing the carbon footprint and conserving energy and water resources, many end-user industries have pushed the boundaries to look for alternative eco-friendly materials.
-Sustainability is increasingly being seen as a best practice to be followed in ensuring no or reduced harmful impact on the environment right from the inception of the product through its manufacturing to delivery and use. In short, it depends on a product’s carbon footprint right from the cradle to its grave.
-However, some of chemical companies and end-user industries, as a significant step towards such a holistic sustainable practice, have started relying more on developing green materials that are generally defined as either biorenewable or non-toxic or produced from recycled content. In some cases, it could be identified as a combination of all the three.
-Personal protective equipment is an important consumer of chemicals and materials, especially in the technical textiles and plastics industries.
