Particulate Respirators Market: Introduction

  • Respirators are devices designed to protect the wearer from inhaling harmful dusts, fumes, gases or vapors. Particulate respirators are also called air-purifying respirators, as they clean particles from the air a person is breathing.
  • Particulate respirators offer protection from dust and other particulate matters but not against chemicals, gases, or vapors. They are often used in hospitals for protection against infectious agents.
  • Particulate respirators are intended to attain close facial fit and effective filtration of airborne particles 
  • These respirators are classified into N-series, R-series, and P-series based on the type of protection they offer
  • N-series particulate respirators are not resistant to oil and hence, offer protection against solid and liquid aerosol particulates not containing oil. R-series particulate respirators are resistant to oil and offer protection against both solid and liquid aerosol particulates that might contain oil.
  • P-series particulate respirators offer protection against solid and liquid aerosol particulates that contain oil, and have a longer service life than R-series respirators

Key Drivers of Global Particulate Respirators Market

Increasing prevalence of respiratory diseases

  • The global particulate respirators market is driven by increasing prevalence of respiratory diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. For instance, as per the World Health Organization (WHO), every year, approximately 65 million people suffer from COPD and 3 million deaths occur, making it the third leading cause of deaths worldwide. Such instances are fueling the demand for particulate respirators.

Rising incidences of mesothelioma

  • The global particulate respirators market is witnessing expansion due to rising incidences of mesothelioma, a cancer, affecting the protective lining of internal organs. For instance, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), there were 19,011 cases of mesothelioma between 2003 and 2008 in the U.S. A large number of mesothelioma cases are triggered by exposure to asbestos. Such instances are increasing the demand for particulate respirators.

Government Initiatives for safety of workers in health care and other industries

  • Government initiatives for improving the security of health care workers are fueling the growth of the global particulate respirators market. For instance, in 2010 outbreak of H1N1 influenza, the U.S. Government undertook initiatives encouraging the use of respiratory protection masks against influenza exposure among health care workers in hospitals of California.

North America to Dominate Global Particulate Respirators Market

  • North America accounts for a major share of the global particulate respirators market
  • The dominant share of North America can be attributed to awareness about particulate respirators among the population, increased R&D initiatives in the health care sector, and technological advancements
  • This market in Asia Pacific is expected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period due to increase in R&D activities, large number of patients suffering from respiratory diseases, and awareness about particulate respirators in the region
  • China and India are anticipated to be the fastest growing particulate respirators markets in the Asia Pacific region due to high population and a large pool of patients with respiratory ailments
