Safety eyewear are defined as goggles particularly designed to provide protection to the eyes from hazardous substances and dust particles. These safety eyewear can be used for daily use or in manufacturing industries such as oil & gas sites, construction sites, and mining. Safety eyewear are mainly divided into four types: goggles, direct ventilated products, indirect ventilated products, and non-ventilated products. Safety eyewear products are available in different sizes and types. Compatibility of safety eyewear products may vary with its application in various industries. Moreover, choosing suitable safety eyewear products depends on multiple parameters such as size, safety, blocker type, comfort, and budget. The global safety eyewear market is expected to expand at a considerable pace in the near future.

The primarily factor driving the global safety eyewear market is heavy expansion of the construction and manufacturing industry. Governments have implemented regulations regarding safety of workers across several sectors and regions, which is projected to drive the safety eyewear market. Moreover, increase in number of accidents at work sites are anticipated to propel the market. Rise in demand for equipment that could protect eyes from laser radiation is anticipated to boost the safety eyewear market in the coming years. In addition, availability of a wide range of safety eyewear products and equipment is expected to drive the safety eyewear market. However, concerns about product quality of safety eyewear manufactured by local and regional players is projected to restrain the market. Moreover, increasing automation in various industries is expected to hinder the market. In addition, large number of small and medium players of safety eyewear products particularly in Asia Pacific and North America is expected to create a challenging environment in the safety eyewear market during the forecast period. Nevertheless, implementation of various regulations related to workers safety by Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) is projected to create significant opportunity in the global safety eyewear market.
