Eye and Face Protection Market 2024 | Stringent Policies on Industrial Safety to Fuel Demand

The eye and face protection market is set to record positive growth during the forecast period of 2017-2026. Eye and face protection equipment is commonly used for preventing injuries caused by chemicals, sparks, metals, etc. Eye and face protection also protects the respiratory system from fog, sprays, smog, etc. Eye and face protection also protects doctors in hospitals from the spread of droplets from cough or sneeze containing infectious virus or flu. On the basis of products, eye and face protection market is classified into goggles, wielding shields, eye spectacles, face shields, and laser safety goggles.

  • The novel coronavirus pandemic has resulted in a surge in the demand for eye and face protection equipment. To protect themselves from COVID-19 infected patients, doctors use face shields. Therefore, face shields are increasingly in demand. New players are also entering the market for meeting the demands of face shields. For instance, Apple has begun the production of face shields and plans to produce over a million masks per week for the medical workers. Italian luxury brand Prada has also joined the bandwagon for producing face shields.
  • Researchers are in the process of developing novel technologies to speed up the manufacturing rate of face shields. For example, a team of researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has developed a new technique for speeding up the production process of face shields. These face shields are disposable and will be made using the die-cutting process. In this process, machines will cut the design from over a thousand flat sheets per hour. Once these flat sheets arrive at the hospital, users can fold them into three-dimensional face shields quickly and adjust it on their faces. Such methods can ramp up the production rate and largely benefit the growth of the eye and face protection market.

Eye and Face Protection: Global Market Trends

Industrial workers around the world are subjected to hazards that can cause temporary or permanent injuries to their vital body parts, particularly to the face and eyes. Governments and industrial regulatory bodies have set mandates for the use of proper protection equipment in industrial settings. Goggles and face shields are being widely used as eye and face protection equipment. Companies and employers are being trained to promote the use of such equipment among their workforce. Growing complexities in the manufacturing sector are exposing workers to more risks of getting injured by toxic substances, sharp metal surfaces and volatile gases.


However, the standardization of guidelines on the production and use of eye and face protection continues to be inharmonious. In developed countries such as the US, national safety standards and state-wise occupational health regulations are conflicting. Manufacturers of eye and face protection equipment are being challenge to meet these diverse standards. The global eye and face protection market is also witnessing a growing implementation of awareness programs. To ensure maximum worker protection, eye and face protection programs are being commissioned, wherein in the employers are provided information on how proper use of eye and face protection equipment among their workforce can help them reduce business expenses accounted by indirect costs of treating the injured workers.

Such factors will continue to influence the expansion of the global market for eye and face protection in the near future. Transparency Market Research’s forecast report on the global eye and face protection market reveals that during the period, 2017-2026, the global eye and face protection market will expand at a sub-par CAGR of 4.6%. The report further estimates that more than US$ 4.5 Bn worth of eye and face protection equipment will be sold across the globe by the end of 2026.

Demand for Laser Safety Goggles to Gain Steadfast Traction through 2026

The report observes a predominant demand for eye spectacles and goggles in the global eye and face protection market. In 2017, global sales of goggles and eye spectacles accounted for more than 70% of the overall market revenues. While these two products will continue to remain top-sellers through 2026, a considerable upsurge in demand for laser safety goggles is expected. The report projects that laser safety goggles will register fastest revenue growth in the global eye and face protection market, reflecting a value CAGR of 7.4% over the forecast period.

The report further reveals that eye and face protection equipment will be predominantly used in the manufacturing sector and the construction industry. Through 2026, the manufacturing and construction applications of eye and face protection equipment are expected to collectively account for over one-third of global market value. The report further reveals that the application of eye and face protection equipment in chemicals industries will register fastest revenue growth at an estimated CAGR of 6.1%. Pharmaceuticals production, food processing, mining, and agriculture will also be observed as lucrative applications in the global eye and face protection market.
