Industries exploring their potential through complex manufacturing processes continue to face strict opposition from environmental regulatory authorities. The "less eco-friendly" and "more physically hazardous" nature of these processes is what comes in the way of maintaining an environmental equilibrium. When it comes down to workers and industrial professionals being exposed to toxic gasses, gas masks are being actively deployed at such manufacturing plants. Fortunately, rising implementation of automation in manufacturing units has limited the presence of laborers, and with it, curbed the need for gas masks. According to Persistence Market Research, the global demand for gas masks is likely to lose traction in the years to come. In its latest report, Persistence Market Research estimates that by the end of 2026, the global gas masks market will have reached a market value of a little over US$ 2,800 Mn.
