Fall Protection Market: Summary

The Global Fall Protection Market is projected to reach a value of over USD 3.5 billion by 2027 at a CAGR of around 5.9%.

Fall protection is a safety equipment referred to any type of planned system to prevent or minimize falls from construction sites and many other places. Fall protections are mostly commonly used in construction sites that are at heights and is achieved by different methods.  There are four categories of fall protection such as fall elimination, fall arrest, fall prevention, and administration control. Fall protection equipment is constantly evolving to simplify and improve traditionally dangerous tasks for which there have previously no safer methods.  Developing user friendly equipment, industrial specialization, and customization are some of the major trends across each fall protection equipment.

Fall Protection Market: Drivers & Challenges

Market Driver:

  • Stringent Government Regulations

Growing concerns regarding safety of workers from hazardous environmental conditions working in different end-use industries owing to which government has imposed rules and regulations. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has imposed a regulation that sets and enforces protective workplace safety and health standards. For instance, OSHA has published regulation 1926.502 for fall protection criteria and practice. Additionally, Canadian Center of Occupational Health and Safety has provided fall protection plan which will help to reduce risks associated with near openings or at heights.

Thus, stringent regulations and guidelines are imposed by the government which has anticipated to surge the fall protection market growth during forecasted period.

  • Increasing Demand Form Construction Industry

Falls are the second leading cause accidental or unintentional injury deaths across the globe. According to World Health Organization, an estimated 646,000 individuals died globally of which over 80% are in low and middle income countries in 2018. Constructions sites usually requires workers to operate at elevated platforms such as aerial work platforms (AWP), ladders, scaffolding, and hoist elevators. Many a times, construction workers also have to operate close to the edge of excavated areas, elevated walkways, steep roof, wall opening, and working surfaces with cutouts. Thus, they are susceptible to accidents by fall. For instance, according to Health & Safety Executive, 30 fatal injuries were reported in the UK in year 2019. Thus, increasing safety concerns of workers has increased the demand for fall protection form construction industry which in turn will boost the market growth.

Market Restraint:

  • Increased Automation in End-use Industries

Industrial automation is the use of control system such as robots or computers, and information technologies for handling different processes and machineries in industries replacing human beings. Main purpose of automation was to increase productivity and reduce the cost associated with human operators. High productivity, high quality, high flexibility, high information accuracy, and safety are benefits offered by automation owing to which they are gaining popularity. For instance, 3D printing technology in constructions helps to build a building in short time span and without human intervention. Thus, adoption of various automation methods across end-use industries may hinder the growth of fall protection equipment during the forecasted period.
