Fall protection equipment is a type of gear that protects people from falling from a great height and keeps them safe in dangerous situations. Fall guarding (protection that prevents a person from entering a fall danger area) and fall restraint (protection preventing the falling of persons working in a fall hazard area) are the two main forms of fall protection. Fall arrest equipment are required in circumstances when workers must work at elevated positions and are at risk of falling.
Rapid industrialization across the US is one of the major factors driving the market's expansion. Occupational hazards are growing increasingly prevalent due to the lack of adequate safety procedures at various manufacturing, mining, and other industrial sites. As a result, fall prevention equipment is now often utilized to safeguard vital human resources. Furthermore, market growth is supported by a significant expansion in the construction industry. Construction sites require people to work on elevated platforms, walkways, steep roofs, wall apertures, and excavated area edges, all of which are extremely dangerous. This, in turn, is pushing the demand for fall protection equipment across the world.
The global fall protection equipment market is segmented based on product type and application. Based on product type, the market is segmented into soft goods, hard goods, rescue kits, body belts, full body harness, and others. The hard goods segment dominated the market in 2020. In terms of application, the fall protection equipment market is segmented into construction, transportation, oil & gas, mining, energy and utilities, telecom, and others. The construction segment led the market in 2020.
