There is tremendous potential in India for all types of Industries and awareness of the use of safety gloves and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE’s) as all Industries are promoting the work safety at work place for productivity and efficiency by providing safety and protection to Industrial Workers. We believe that use of safety products will rise tremendously in next decade as use of safety products in India by workers in organised Industrial sectors is less than 10% and we also have to tap all these organised and unorganised sector which will result in excellent demand for Safety Products.
