Safety lanyards are wires, ropes, or cords used to secure personal working tools and other equipment to the body of workers to prevent accidents, especially while working at heights or over a water area. Safety lanyards are usually worn around the waist, neck, and shoulders of the workers. They can also be temporarily secured to fittings of masts, towers, ladders, railings, poles, roofs etc. Rising industrialization has propelled the growth of the safety lanyard market. Various rules and regulations put forth by governments of many countries have made it mandatory for all industries to safety lanyard market.
Safety standards by OSHA and ANSI regarding the safety of workers have made it obligatory to have safety lanyards in all manufacturing and construction industries. Growing infrastructure and construction activities across the globe is expected to create immense opportunities for expansion of the safety lanyard market over the forecast period. According to Bureau of Labor Statistics Census, the number of fatal occupational injuries was approximately 5,000 in 2017 across the globe. Usually industry accidents involve slips, trips, and falls, resulting in more than 500 accidental deaths every year as per the report of OSHA. Rising concerns about overall safety and growing fleet size of emergency services is also expected to lead to increasing growth of safety lanyards in the near future. Conventions regarding safety of workers such as Total Quality Management (TQM) is projected to fuel market demand during the forecast period. Management is becoming proactive regarding safety of workers, resulting in increasing demand for safety lanyards. Increasing investment on research and development is also expected to propel the demand over the forecast period
