Wearables and Smart Technologies for Industrial Environment—A PPE Perspective : Improved Worker Productivity and Long-Term Cost-Savings will Drive PPE End Users to Adopt Wearables

This study outlines the developments in smart and wearable technologies in the global PPE market. It discusses what is smart for the PPE market and what kind of developments can benefit the end users in overcoming some of the challenges associated with traditional PPE. It also outlines the drivers and challenges for smart PPE and provides an overview on the smart developments in different product categories—head protection, eye and face protection, hearing protection, respiratory protection, protective gloves, protective clothing, protective footwear, and fall protection. It also provides an insight into the supply side perspective and future potential for smart technologies in the PPE market.

Key Findings

Wearable technologies are slowly entering the PPE market, with the promise of improving worker productivity, better safety and long term cost-savings through active prevention of accidents.

Big data, Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing, coupled with the market need for product differentiation will eventually drive PPE manufacturers to invest in smart and wearables.

The difficulty faced by manufacturers of smart products in meeting safety standards and quantifying ROI to end users impede market penetration of smart PPE.

Hearing protection, head protection, respiratory protection, and protective clothing offer promising opportunities for the protective wearables market.

Fire safety, emergency medical service (EMS), mining, automotive, oil and gas, and manufacturing are the industries with high utility and potential for smart PPE.
