Report summary

The threats posed by chemicals and other hazardous substances are greater than ever. The need for personal protection has been clearly demonstrated over the past two decades by the large number of incidents involving the spread of contaminants, chemical industrial disasters and terrorist attacks. In response to such need, great strides have been made in the provision of personal protection and in preparing for future incidents.

The demand for chemical protective clothing looks set to remain robust. Factors which will fuel growth include the adoption of occupational safety regulations in the developing world, improvements in protective fabrics and the emergence of new threats. Growth will also be fuelled by outbreaks of diseases, persistent terrorist activity and an increase in the amount of chemicals being manufactured, transported and handled.

This report provides a wealth of information on chemical protective clothing, including the different types of clothing and ensembles, materials used to produce them, their applications and key performance features. It also provides an overview of demand for chemical protective clothing, chemicals and their hazards, and standards for chemical protective clothing.
