3 2 Market chances for products manufactured not in accordance with the spirit of the European Council Directive 89/686/EEC, as amended by directives 93/68/EEC, 93/95/EEC and 96/58/EC and not complying with the EN Norms are rapidly deteriorating. This means that manufacturers should become familiar with both the European legal restrictions and the preferences of their potential clients. It is up to the manufacturers in developing countries to translate their apprehensions into an export expansion opportunity. However if they are to achieve this, they need to gather information concerning issues at the earliest possible stage. The market size: contemplations, considerations, forecasts


6 5 Trade figures must be interpreted and used with extreme caution. The collection of data regarding trade flows has become more difficult since the establishment of the single market on the 1st January Until that date, trade was registered by means of compulsory customs procedures at border crossings, but, since the removal of the intra-EU trade borders, this is no longer the case.

7 6 The way to and EU Market PPE via ZS/BIA Erkrath Germany

8 7 The market size: contemplations, considerations, forecasts The total EU and EFTA market is estimated at 15,000, including jeans for work and industrial use and including a limited number of uniforms (e.g. high profile career wear from bankers has not been taken into account). Forecast for the coming years is a fairly strong increase of approximately 4%. The main reasons for market growth are: 1. Strongly increasing social awareness 2. Health disasters SARS AIDS MCD PP+CP 3. Climate changes (disasters like fluds, volcano eruptions etc.) 4. Terrorism (body bags, fire fighting) 5. The obsolescence (aging) clause in the European Council Directive 6. Harmonized norms 7. Product Liability (litigation) 8. Global mobility (cross cultural increase)

17 16 What is PPE ? Device or appliance to be worn or held by an individual for protection against one or more health and safety hazards at work (OSH definition).

18 17 Meaning of ? Conformité Europienne European Conformity 3 +1 categories PPE: I: Simple design low risk protection II: Medium design medium risk protection III: Complex design high risk protection 0: Special appliances (army. police, rescue)

19 18 Why ? Motivation: in EU / EFTA = BIG business? No=? - Legislation Eur. Counc. Dir. 89/686/EEC - Buyers awareness - Public awareness + OSH conditions - Market entry chances

23 22 Review Workwear and protective clothing The Netherlands ranked fifth after UK and Italy, despite the rather low re- exports of workwear by this country (compared with casual wear, underwear, footwear etc.). Belgium ranked sixth before Sweden and Denmark.

26 25 Forecast The center segment of CE markets will face difficulties. Level and bottom wise, price-quality related there is a stable market. The Personal Protective Equipment industry has no high profile nor price image (yet). The niche to work on in the years to come will consist of Stories, while Total Packaging (all kind of PPE) demand from buyers side will increase, as well as demand for more anticipation in the field of Value Added Products or VAPs. (Country) Clustering, consumer marketing, fashionising the strict and imperative designing rules of the PPE norms for manufacturers in developing countries will become a must.

27 26 Manufacturers and exporters in developing countries will have to comply more and more with harmonized European technical regulations and standards. The European Union or EU is the biggest single market in the world. This also counts for products falling under the European Council Directive 89/686/EEC, as amended by directives 93/68/EEC, 93/95/EEC and 96/58/EC. Personal occupational, safety and health (OSH) awareness is continuously expanding. Bearing in mind safety on the workplace, consumers, employees and employers are becoming increasingly interested in safer products. The market size: contemplations, considerations, forecasts

28 27 Review Workwear and protective clothing Germany again consolidated its leading position as an importer of workwear and protective clothing in the period under review. German imports share decreased considerably in terms of value and in volume. France retained its second position after Germany, however, the distance between these countries became much smaller.

29 28 Practical example PU coating on knitted PA (stretch PU), base material is a knitted polyamide 6 of around 90 gr/m2 wich is coated with PU (lamination), total weight is around gr/m2 This is used for garments which are weldedwith HF machines (High frequent machines)

30 29 Practical example Oxford Nylon with breathable PU coating (+-190g/m2) mm hydrostatic head and breathability of g/m2/24hrs. These materials are all water repellent treated as well and are used for winter parka's (see gore- tex style parka's) and other garments. The materials are stitched and then waterproof taped on the seams.
