Europe PPE Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The size of the European PPE market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.9% from 2022 to 2027.

The increase in medical emergencies facilitates the European market growth, the growing number of doctors, and the rising rates of poisonings, injuries, accidents, and several other conditions that require urgent medical intervention.

EU countries are working diligently to increase the respective manufacturing and distribution capacities for PPE. To mitigate the effects of disruptors, they are rethinking their supply chains by launching new manufacturing lines and/or diversifying their supplier base. The low investment and the risks associated with e-commerce business platforms have enabled several distributors to strengthen their regional presence, thereby accessing untapped markets in Europe. Furthermore, the financial responsibilities associated with the costs of operating and maintaining stores have prompted retailers to turn to e-commerce platforms in recent years. One of the main PPE production companies recently closed several offices across the EU region and invested in upcoming storage projects in remote locations to compete with popular e-commerce giants such as Amazon and improve their PPE market share.

The strict regulatory framework in the European healthcare industry and increased demand for new healthcare projects drive the growth of the European healthcare PPE market. However, the PPE supply chain was under heavy strain, resulting in insufficient supply due to the covid pandemic. Although the supply chain has improved in recent months, few healthcare facilities and businesses are still struggling to source products, such as gloves and respirators.

Impact of COVID-19 on the European PPE market:

The European face shield market is expected to grow at a sustained rate until 2027 due to the growing need for preventive measures to curb coronavirus transmission. The European Union promotes personal protective equipment such as face shields, which are a major engine of growth in this market. In addition, the growing awareness of health and hygiene among people has created a demand for personal safety equipment, such as face shields, thus fueling the market until 2025. In March 2020, the European Committee for Standardization had agreed to harmonize all elements and fully available standards to increase the European production capacity of these essential products.

Harmonized European standards are technical specifications used by industry to ensure compliance with legislative security requirements, allowing unhindered market access. Typically, companies purchase harmonized standards from national members of European standardization organizations, and intellectual property standards limit their use. In addition, in 2020, a recommendation was issued to accelerate the adoption of new products which are not according to the harmonized standards, without compromising the health and safety standards and without undue delay. In addition, the arrival of new manufacturers has led to the availability of a variety of face shields in the market, which is gaining ground among consumers.

Regional Analysis:

Geographically, the German PPE market leads the European market for personal protective equipment for healthcare and accounts for 35.9% of the revenue share in 2020. The Covid-19 pandemic has dramatically increased the demand for products in the region. As a result, the European Commission has urged manufacturers to evolve their existing facilities to manufacture PPE to increase gowns, coveralls, masks, gloves, and goggles. In addition, it works with EU countries to ensure the free movement of PPE within the internal market.

Distribution of personal protective equipment in Germany to exceed $ 3.9 billion by 2027. The German Ministry of Health has asked German multinationals such as BASF and its network of contacts abroad, especially in China, to purchase protective clothing and equipment. Product shortages have become apparent in many German clinics and hospitals, so the government has launched an open bidding process for PPE to speed up the process and overcome administrative hurdles.


Companies such as 3M, Honeywell International, Inc., DuPont, Cardinal Health, Medline Industries, Inc., Kimberly-Clark Corporation, Ansell Ltd., MSA Safety Inc., and O&M Halyard, Inc. are expected to account for the most significant share in the European PPE market during the forecast period.
