The global medical protective goggles market is expected to witness a CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period.
Medical protective goggles are forms of protective eyewear that usually enclose or protect the area surrounding the eye to prevent particulates, water, or chemicals from striking the eyes. These are used by the healthcare workers treating patients suffering from infectious diseases and by personnel working in laboratories with chemicals or human bodily fluids. Goggles are recommended by various organizations as primary eye protection as they can significantly reduce the transmission of infectious diseases.
The global medical protective goggles market is mainly driven by factors such as the rising prevalence of infectious diseases and regulations that mandate wearing the protective goggles for employees working in sensitive environments. However, recall of the faulty goggles and shortage of goggles owing to high demand is likely to restrain the market growth to a certain extent.
The global medical protective goggles market has been analyzed from three perspectives: Type, End-User, and Region.
Medical Protective Goggles Market by Type
Based on type, the medical protective goggles market has been segmented into disposable goggles and reusable goggles. The disposable goggles segment dominated the market with the largest share in 2020. The growth of the segment can be attributed to its benefits over reusable goggles. Reusable goggles are needed to be disinfected after every use. Despite the disinfection, there are chances that the entire surface is not properly disinfected and may carry the bioburden. This, in turn, increases the risk of spreading the infection to the operating room, healthcare workers, and patients.
Medical Protective Goggles Market by End User
Based on end-user, the medical protective goggles market has been segmented into hospitals, diagnostic centers, academic & research centers, and others (ambulatory care centers, etc.). The hospital"s segment is anticipated to be the fastest-growing end-user segment during the forecast period owing to rising demand for PPE kits including protective goggles in specialized hospital centers intended to diagnose & treat infectious diseases such as COVID-19.
Medical Protective Goggles Market by Region
Based on region, the global medical protective goggles market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World (ROW). North America dominated the medical protective goggles market in 2020, followed by the Asia Pacific. The large share of the North American market is attributed to a greater demand for protective goggles which is attributed to high awareness regarding the use of safety equipment at healthcare institutions.
