Technavio’s analysts categorize the global traffic safety equipment market into five major segments by product. They are:

  • Traffic vests and rainwear
  • Traffic cones
  • Traffic barricades
  • Tube delineators
  • Others

The top three products segments for the global traffic safety equipment market are discussed below:

Global traffic safety equipment market by traffic vests and rainwear

Traffic vests and rainwear are high visibility clothing (jackets, shirts, and pants). They are bright colored that enables drivers and pedestrians to locate them easily, particularly at places having potential threat of accidents. For example, workers at road construction sites are susceptible to vehicle hitting and crashing, especially at night. Therefore, they are equipped with high visibility clothing and rainwear.

According to Neelash Prakash Singh, a lead power research analyst from Technavio, “Bad weather conditions, such as heavy rain and fog, can decrease the visibility of drivers, thus requiring law enforcement personnel and other workers to use traffic vests and rainwear. Similarly, crossing guards, who are highly prone to accidents use traffic vests for increased visibility to drivers.”

Global traffic safety equipment market by others

The other traffic safety equipment segment includes products such as flags, reflective safety tapes, stop and slow signs, marker signs, post reflectors, and LED barricade lights. These products, together hold a share of around 18.54%, due to their wide use in both municipal, and industrial and commercial applications.

Similarly, road surface markings and pavement markings help to align the vehicle movement and vehicle positioning. Some of the functions of pavement markings include segregation of traffic, pedestrian crossing, inter-vehicle distance, and defining parking zones,” says Neelash.

Global traffic safety equipment market by tube delineators

Tube delineators are suitable for highway and city roads, where traffic flow is constant. These delineators have high stability and are long lasting. Vendors in the market are offering delineators with recycled rubber base and reflective tapes.

Tube delineators available in the market consist of UV inhibitors that help in retaining (by minimizing fading) the bright color. The tube delineator segment is expected to register a moderate growth during the forecast period due to their long lifecycle and extensive use on highways and city roads.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • 3M
  • Ergodyne
  • Honeywell
