Global Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Distribution Growth Opportunities



In the global PPE market, the acquisition of new customers through geographic expansion has driven consolidation activities and responded to customer preference for purchasing all of their PPE from a single supplier.

New York, May 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — announces the release of the report “Global Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Distribution Growth Opportunities” –
This trend has driven PPE manufacturers and distributors to pursue acquisitions, expand their portfolios, offer complementary technical training and services, and become one-stop shops.

Additionally, distributors are launching private label PPE product brands. These private labels will enable them to make greater profits and offer a low cost alternative to customers.

As a result, PPE manufacturers may lose market share and face challenges due to low cost products available from new competitors. Another way to reach new customers is for retailers to embrace technology and digitize their business.

For example, by incorporating an e-commerce model, a customer can use digital information and communication technologies to reduce processing costs, speed up procurement and manage orders. The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed vulnerabilities in the market’s highly fragmented distribution system. Distributors with weak enterprise resource planning systems, ineffective implementation of digital channels, and lack of technological proficiency have suffered, allowing larger distributors to acquire them and to increase their reach. Security distributors were among the most sought-after target groups for acquisitions; North America and Western Europe emerged as the regions experiencing significant distribution consolidation. This research assesses the consolidation activity of the global PPE distribution industry from 2018 to 2021, including mergers and acquisitions (M&A) of distributors in all major industries (manufacturing, construction, mining, petroleum and gas, transportation, utilities, and food and chemical processing). The product segments analyzed are neck PPE; respiratory, hand, foot and fall protection; protective clothing; and gas detection. The study concludes with a discussion of key growth opportunities that industry players should consider as they look to the future.
