Global Industrial Protective Footwear Market to grow to around USD 11,200.5 million by 2028

23-Jun-2022 | Zion Market Research

The global industrial protective footwear market grasped a revenue growth of USD 4,300.4 million in 2021 and is projected to grow to around USD 11,200.5 million by 2028 at a CAGR rate of 8.2% during the forecast period. Consumers utilize a range of industrial protective footwear, including plastic, leather, and rubber shoes, to safeguard themselves against harm caused by falling items, electrical contacts, moving parts, and other hazards during industrial labor. The main characteristics of industrial safety footwear are aesthetic appeal, comfort, innovation, and safety. In order to create a safe workplace and comfort for workers, shoe manufacturers all over the world have focused on incorporating these qualities into their goods over time. The use of industrial protective footwear is majorly in transportation, manufacturing, transportation, and chemical industries.

The expansion of the global industrial protective footwear market is primarily driven by rapid industrialization, expanding end-user sectors like oil & gas, pharmaceutical, food, and mining as well as rising government measures to improve worker safety at the workplace. In addition to this, as an alternative to bulky boots, manufacturers are producing new lightweight protective footwear. Standards for protective footwear are always changing since modern footwear is far more sophisticated than earlier models and offers greater protection, thereby boosting the growth of the market. However, industrial protective footwear is a prestige product with a higher price tag than regular footwear. Industrial protective footwear's market expansion would be hampered by this. However, a lack of knowledge about worker safety in SME companies, particularly in emerging markets, also restrains market expansion. Further, sales of the cheap, low-quality protective footwear have resulted from the presence of local producers who create products cheaply by using fake and inferior materials, prohibiting the market from growing. On the other hand, the demand for safety footwear would also expand over the projection period as a result of specific training programs and the creation of new, demanding safety requirements.

The industrial protective footwear market was significantly impacted by COVID-19. This is majorly attributed to supply chain disruptions, restrictions on personal movement, retail store closures, and lockdowns. The result was a collapse of the economy and the closing of numerous factories. Additionally, the market for industrial safety footwear declined as a result of a decrease in demand for industrial protective footwear as several end-users including transportation and construction were severely hampered during the pandemic period.
