The Global Face Shields Market Size is expected to reach USD 1520.1 Million by 2032, at a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period 2022 to 2032.


Market Overview

Face shields are personal protection equipment (PPE) intended to cover the wearer's complete face from risks such as flying projectiles, splashes, and other potentially contagious materials. A wide range of end-use sectors, including the medical, automotive, aerospace, manufacturing, oil & gas, construction, marine, and others, find usage for it. A significant impact has been observed on supply chains at all levels as a result of the new coronavirus's rapid expansion across nations and regions. The supply chain for items like masks, gloves, and shields that are used for personal protection has struggled to meet the rising demand. A prohibition on personal protection equipment and other essential supplies has also been proposed as supply and logistical restrictions due to the epidemic. The heavy reliance on PRC and ASEAN nations like Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, and others as industrial hubs is one of the causes.

Driving Factors

Worldwide demand for specialist medical equipment, such as personal protective equipment, significantly exceeded supply during the COVID-19 pandemic epidemic. Basic medical supplies including medical gloves, aprons, goggles, surgical masks, and these face shields are in extremely high demand throughout the healthcare sector as a result of this pandemic's rapid spread. Also, Various national and international laws and regulations are frequently mentioned as major market influencers. By the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA), employers are required to make sure that workers are wearing appropriate face protection if they are exposed to particular risks from chemical fumes, flying particles, dangerous radiation, molten metal, acidic liquids, and liquid chemicals.


Restraining Factors

Oil and metal are the primary basic materials utilized to create the visors and headgear required for shields. These are constructed of oil-based polymers such as polyethylene terephthalate glycol (PETG), polycarbonate (PC), and acetate. The business is hence partly reliant on crude oil prices. It is anticipated that the market's growth pace would be hampered by the shifting price of oil. However, there is a significant amount of market overcapacity for polycarbonate, especially in Europe, where operating rates are only about 70%, which would probably prevent further price hikes. To meet the growing demand, China plans to increase its manufacturing capacity, raising the cost of polycarbonate.
