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.
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.
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.

The events of 2020 have brought new perspective to the Health and Safety Products Market leading to significantly increased demand for PPE, hygiene products and safety signs. Meanwhile consumption, replacement and refreshment of standard workplace items such as washroom towels, first aid kits and fire safety products has reduced in some end use sectors with less activity in communal spaces, especially offices and other work places.
This report focuses on five categories of Health and Safety products: PPE, hygiene products, first aid products, safety signs and fire safety productsP. Each of these main categories is further broken down and considered from both a volume and value perspective.
The report provides detailed analysis of supply and distribution including market shares and profiles for the key product suppliers in each of the five main categories as well as a break down of channel shares between online sales, industrial distributors and health and safety specialists, also profiled individually.
This report reviews performance in the Health and Safety Products market since 2016, noting a significant upturn in estimated figures for 2020. Forecasts are made through to 2025 at market and sub-category level indicating the degree to which growth is anticipated to be sustained in the coming five years.
This is the 8th edition of the AMA Research’s Health and Safety Products Market Report. In successive editions we 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 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, as the UK
