Market Definition

Hazardous material suits, abbreviate as HAZMAT, are designed to assure the user has complete protection while undergoing activities that involve interaction with hazardous material like radioactive material, chemicals, etc. Nuclear Biological Chemical (NBC) suits are the specialized variety of such costumes that consist of a protection jacket & a trouser worn directly above the garments. The unique property of these suits is their permeability & breathability & their specific design to protect users. These protection layers have compatibility to sustain for extended periods, as in the case of war.

However, today, they are popularly worn by workers in chemical manufacturing units, exploration, mining, military wars, etc. The suit has three layers, where the outer-most layer is fabricated with chemical & fire retardant fibers (inherently retardant), the middle layer has active charcoal treated non-woven, & the inner-most layer has cotton fabric.

Market Insights

The Global Nuclear Biological Chemical (NBC)/Hazmat Suits Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 7.25% in terms of revenue during the forecast period, i.e., 2022-27.  The mounting awareness among industrialists & governments worldwide about various health risks associated with corrosive chemicals, bacteria, & radioactive waves from nuclear power plants has spurred the demand for NBC/Hazmat suits across the construction, food processing, oil & gas, mining industries, etc. The increasing accidents & injuries at such workplaces due to the lack of awareness among industrialists & workers for adopting personal safety & health products has increased the significance of equipping factory personnel with NBC protective suits.

Additionally, the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 compelled the global healthcare workers to exercise strict regulations for workers' safety. Due to this, the growth of the NBC/Hazmat suits market hovered above 50% since various countries implemented strict regulations for healthcare workers to wear biological suits in order to avoid contact with the contagious virus. For instance:

  • According to the World Bank production of Biological Suits, during 2020 significantly increased from 0 units in March 2020 to 4.5 million units in May 2020.

With the rapidly booming refining, automotive, & metal manufacturing activities, along with various ongoing territorial conflicts worldwide, the demand for protective suits is expected to rise significantly in the future.

Key Trends in the Market: Strict Government Mandates for Worker Safety & Security in Industries

Rising fatality rates due to the burgeoning chemical, nuclear, or fire hazards at workplaces have derived awareness among the regional governments & industrial units to mandate the use of NBC suits for minimizing health risks globally. In addition, the chemical attacks in Syria in 2015 alerted the defense forces of Russia, the US, and other neighboring countries regarding the existence of potential threats. Therefore, the region witnessed an increase in the orders for NBC suits during 2016-19.

Further, the demand for biological suits in 2020 grew at an alarming rate, with the US & China remaining the top exporters of NBC/Hazmat suits. Additionally, the fear of the shortage of suits in various countries worldwide led to increasing investments in the PPE manufacturing firms. However, the NBC/Hazmat suit market witnessed a shortfall in the demand for nuclear & chemical suits during the first quarter of 2020, due to a slowdown in economic activities such as construction, exploration, etc. which limited the use of NBC/Hazmat suits in 2020.

Market Segmentation

Based on Level of Protection,

  • Level A
  • Level B
  • Level C
  • Level D

Of them all, Level A suites dominated the Global Nuclear Biological Chemical (NBC)/Hazmat Suits Market during 2017-21. These suits, often used by firefighters, medical crews, medical researchers, mining workers, etc., provide total encapsulation and a high level of protection against direct & airborne chemical contact. The rise in construction activities, growing investments in mining & oil exploration operations in the Middle East, the US, Asia Pacific, and Europe, coupled with the imposition of the industrial mandate for protective suits to provide workers safety, has accelerated the demand for these suits worldwide. However, as industrialists are learning the limitations of Level A suits of withstanding onto 20 minutes of extreme work hours, their demand suits might decline during 2022-27.

Based on Application:

  • Biological
  • Chemical
  • Nuclear
  • Fire/High Temperature

Of them all, the Nuclear Protective Suits in the Global NBC/Hazmat suits market is expected to acquire a considerable share during 2022-27, owing to increasing international tensions between nuclear-armed countries. The growing national conflicts among China, the US, India, Russia, and several other countries are leading to the increasing deployment of nuclear warheads in their respective armed force weapons to sustain the wars & protect their national boundaries against getting occupied by the rival countries. For instance:

  1. In February 2021, the US announced to build of a new nuclear weapon for mass destruction. This new missile will be able to travel some 6000 miles carrying a warhead more than 20 times more powerful than the atomic bomb dropped on the Hiroshima incident.
  2. Additionally, In January 2022, the Government of China announced to have around 700 deliverable nuclear warheads by 2027.

However, the mounting use of nuclear-based weapons in armed forces globally is contributing to an increased risk for workers in the area. Thermal waves, radiation, & radioactive wastes generated by nuclear power plants are prominent concerns for human health & the environment. It owes to the creation of radioactive wastes like uranium mill tailings, used reactor fuel, & other radioactive wastes generated by nuclear explosions that have short & long-term devastating effects on human bodies.
