VALLEY COTTAGE, N.Y. – According to Future Market Insights (FMI), the driving protection gear market is expected to reach US$ 10.5 Bn by 2029 from US$ 6.6 Bn in 2018. In terms of revenue, the market is poised to increment at a CAGR of 4.3% during the forecast period 2019-2029.

Over the years, growing concerns regarding road safety, increasing demand for superbikes, and rising motorsports popularity across the world have influenced the demand for driving protection gears. High competition for protective apparel from the unorganized sectors is a threat to the market growth. Notwithstanding, the surging rate of mishaps and accidents have prompted a strong need to improve driving safety. Subsequently, governments across the globe are mandating the use of protective equipment such as helmets, gloves, and clothes, especially while riding two wheelers.
