The 8th edition of the Health & Safety Products Market Report- UK 2021-2025 has been published by AMA Research. Health and Safety products are the consumables that all businesses need to keep their people protected in the workplace. This report focuses on five categories of Health and Safety products: PPE, hygiene products, first aid products, safety signs and fire safety products.
In successive editions AMA have tracked the market shares of manufacturers and distributors across the market for PPE, hygiene products, first aid products, safety signs and fire safety products. Monitoring these consumables we quickly see fluctuations in demand resulting from significant occurrences such as the Covid-19 pandemic. PPE, hygiene products and safety signage in particular have been brought into focus by recent events. Diving into subsectors of these markets provides a clear picture of the change in demand for different product types and what of this demand is likely to be sustained into the future.
Coronavirus and Brexit are significant events which continue to shape the non-domestic health and safety products market. On the one hand, there is an opportunity for companies to accentuate their technical credentials, with both UK and EU product certification, ensuring that they clearly differentiate from an influx of uncertified and generic PPE products promoted during the pandemic; however, this may also result in increased costs for dual certification. On the other hand, it is anticipated that the market will continue to expand, underpinned by sustained demand for PPE, hygiene supplies and safety signage. The fire safety sector is also very much in focus, given legislation, with likely improvements to fire safety in high rise buildings.
The Marketing to Contractors & Housebuilders feature (which is sponsored by South East Construction Expo) in the Sectors section of our Directory provides an overview of the sector, including
details of its various media channels and events, together with access to our downloadable database of those with responsibility for procurement at key firms.
The UK economy is facing a significant challenge, resulting from the pandemic, with strong variation in the performance of individual sectors. Demand is likely to be sustained in the infrastructure, utilities and energy sectors, as well as transport/logistics, creating demand for all manner of health and safety products, notably PPE. However, the retail, hospitality, offices and leisure/entertainment sectors, and to some degree private commercial education, may take much longer to recover. Similarly, performance of the manufacturing sector varies across industry sectors. Demand for British products may now start to see a sharp rise.
The report looks at demand across each category of Health and Safety product through considering the scale of activity in end use sectors, the fortunes and market shares of product manufacturers and the interplay of different distribution channels in this marketplace.
Areas of Particular Interest include:
In this 2021 report it is particularly interesting to see the shift in dominance of market shares across the five main product categories, and the sub categories within these. Much of this shift can be attributed to the new demands introduced in response to Covid-19 and the changes that has brought about in the workplace.
