Key Findings

The Ebola Outbreak has Challenged the Global PPE Market
•The Ebola outbreak in West Africa is unprecedented, and never before has personal protective equipment (PPE) been this large of a focus for such a deadly, infectious disease.
•This outbreak has presented the PPE market with challenges that must be addressed to overcome this global crisis.

A Small Boost in PPE Demand
•With the global struggle to tackle this deadly disease, the PPE market has undoubtedly seen a small boost in revenues, adding to the global financial burden caused by the Ebola outbreak.
•The demand, however, is short lived and volatile in nature, urging PPE manufacturers to stay focused on the core market when addressing the Ebola PPE demand.

Ebola Containment versus Ebola Preparedness
•While the West African nations have struggled to contain Ebola with limited available PPE resources, developed nations are stockpiling PPE for Ebola preparedness, thereby disrupting the PPE supply chain.
