North America Workwear Market Outlook and Trends

Growth drivers 


·         Increasing awareness amongst the corporates

Increasing awareness amongst the corporates regarding the benefit of workwear in the form of ease in functionality, identification, protection of employee, etc. is the key factor driving demand of workwear in the region. Progressing trends toward fashionable and functional clothing along with the expanding workforce base across industries in the region and the growing number of enterprises in the business sector are some of the factors intensifying the growth of the North America workwear market


·         Increasing Episodes of workplace accidents and fatalities


The demand for safe and durable workwear is increasing due to rising workplace accidents and fatalities. Increasing workplace accidents and fatalities are expected to promote industry segment growth. As per the report of ILO, around 2.3 million people throughout the world die due to work-related accidents or diseases annually. Over the past few years, companies have been offering lightweight and adaptable fabrics and apparel that can be used for different work environments, using advanced fabric technology. 


Workers in manufacturing and allied sectors such as automobile and oil and gas are aware of occupational hazards and hence, opt for workwear rather than casual clothes. Manufacturing and power industries make it mandatory for staff to wear safety footwear to avoid slippages, burns and falls inside the premises. 




·         Requirement of Quality combined with Regular Maintenance


Providing appropriate workwear and PPE for staff entails a significant outlay for any business. Sometimes, workwear is uncomfortable and creates uneasiness to the person wearing it. Workwear is not a freebie for employees but an out of pocket expense, and it needs regular maintenance; Clothes made from polyester are not breathable and are also not recyclable. Usage of more polyester may restrain the North America workwear market because of environmental concerns.

Poor quality items will not have a long lifespan, no matter how much time people devote to workwear care. Choosing the most appropriate workwear is key to ensuring its durability. The high cost of workwear in the industry is a critical factor affecting the growth of North America workwear market.


·         Impact of COVID-19 in industry


The World Health Organization now recognizes the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) to be a pandemic. As the virus spreads and cases mount, and measures are stiffened to control the spread of the virus. The food delivery systems are screened at all levels, and the tests will be extended to the coming weeks and months.

Besides, it will have an impact on market demand and supplies as well as consumer trends, preferences and their disposable income.
