according to the investigation of the association and the understanding of the special protective clothing market, this paper introduces the current situation and development trend of China’s special protective clothing market to today’s forum< First, the basic situation of China's special protective clothing market labor protective clothing refers to the clothing that can protect the wearer from the possible harm caused by some dangerous materials, dangerous elements, dangerous events and dangerous processes in the life or workplace protective clothing can be divided into general protective clothing and special protective clothing according to its use and protective performance ordinary protective clothing refers to the clothing that can prevent general minor injury and dirt or reflect the corporate image. 1n China, it is used to be called work clothes or professional clothes (logo clothes) special protective clothing refers to the clothing used to protect the workplace, products or environment from human pollution and hazards, and the clothing used to protect workers from injury or hazards, which has a certain protective function. According to the protective function, special protective clothing can be divided into: 1. Flame retardant clothing2. Acid and alkali chemicals protective clothing; 3. Anti static clothing; 4. Welding protective clothing; 5. Oil proof clothing; 6. Waterproof clothing; 7. Live working shielding clothing; 8. X-ray protective clothing; 9. Microwave radiation protective clothing; 10. Forest fire protection clothing; Wait among all kinds of protective articles, protective clothing is one of the most widely used and the most used protective articles. 1t has a wide market both at home and abroad. According to the analysis of relevant statistical data, the demand for protective clothing accounts for about 25% of the total demand for labor protection articles in China. The data shows that there is a wide demand for protective clothing in China< According to the data, the total number of employees in China is about 250 million, and the annual demand for various types of protective clothing is about 180 million sets. According to the average unit price of 80 yuan per set, the total amount is about 15 billion yuan. The annual demand of special protective clothing accounts for about 35% of all protective clothing, about 63 million sets. Among them, antistatic clothing is the largest, accounting for about 40% of the annual demand for special protective clothing, about 25 million sets; The second is acid-base chemical protective clothing, with annual demand about 35% of the total demand for special protective clothing, about 22 million sets; The annual demand for flame retardant clothing is about 20% of the total demand for special protective clothing, about 13 million sets; The less used is anti-static wool knitted clothing, with an annual demand of about 500000 sets China is a market with large demand for special protective clothing, and also a country with large production of special protective clothing. According to incomplete statistics, China has obtained the national industrial product production license, and nearly 200 enterprises can produce flame retardant clothing, acid-base chemical protective clothing, anti-static clothing and anti-static wool knitted clothing, which are distributed in 21 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions. The manufacturers of special protective clothing can basically meet the demand of domestic special protective clothing market China’s protective clothing market, with the development of China’s market economy and the policy guidance of opening to the outside world, especially in the late 1990s, a group of famous foreign enterprises in the field of safety protection represented by DuPont company of the United States entered China, bringing Nomex, Kevlar and other special fiber materials, Promote and enhance the development of China’s special protective clothing market. With the extensive application of polysulfonamide fiber developed and produced in China, the market variety and quality of special protective clothing are further enriched and improved. With the popularization and application of new materials and fibers, the gap between China’s special protective clothing and international protective clothing is gradually narrowing. The special protective clothing made of domestic fiber has been applied in China’s aerospace and other fields, and has obtained good use evaluation. These examples fully prove that China’s special protective clothing market has been developed rapidly after various trials in 1988, China began to formulate mandatory national standards for special protective clothing. 1n 1988 and 1989, China successively formulated gb8965-88 flame retardant protective clothing, gb12012-89 acid proof work clothes and GB12014-89 anti static work clothes. After several modifications, China has established a series of standards for special protective clothing, including gb8965.1-2009 flame retardant protection of protective clothing Part 1: flame retardant clothing, gb8965.2-2009 flame retardant protection of protective clothing part 2: Welding clothing, gb12014-2009 anti static clothing, GB / t23464-2009 anti static wool knitted clothing, GB / t23464-2009 flame retardant protection of protective clothing part 2: Welding clothing, GB / t23464-2009 anti static wool knitted clothing, GB / t23464-2009 anti static wool knitted clothing, GB / t23464-2009 flame retardant protection of protective GB ? 24540-2009 protective clothing for acid and alkali chemicals, etc. These standards cover the quality testing methods and specific quality standard requirements of special protective clothing, which are of great significance to promote the quality improvement of China’s special protective clothing, strengthen the market supervision of special protective clothing, and realize the international standards of China’s special protective clothing China’s protective clothing industry, especially the special protective clothing industry, is a rising industry. With the continuous development of China’s market economy, the state pays more and more attention to safety production and environmental protection, the improvement of people’s cultural quality and the enhancement of safety awareness, the demand for all kinds of special protective clothing will be greater and greater, and the requirements for the variety, quality, style and color of special protective clothing will be higher and higher. This also provides opportunities for the development of special protective clothing industry< Second, the market environment of special protective clothing and the problems affecting its development we think that China’s special protective clothing is still in the period of market development. We should clearly see that China’s special protective clothing industry is still a weak industry in China, especially in the material research of special protective clothing. Although there are a large number of domestic protective clothing manufacturers, they are still dominated by small and medium-sized enterprises. Most of them have small production scale and weak brand influence. Although there are a large number of products, most of them have single function, low technology content and serious homogenization. Compared with international brands, they still have a large gap. At present, there are several problems that affect the market environment and development of special protective clothing< 1n recent years, affected by the adjustment of China's economic development model, some industrial enterprises, such as iron and steel, shipbuilding, manufacturing and export processing enterprises, have reduced production, operating losses, staff reduction and labor number due to the sluggish market, which directly leads to the shrinkage of downstream demand for protective clothing, This restricted the development of China's special protective clothing industry to a certain extent< 1n China, there are more enterprises that can produce general labor protection clothing and less enterprises that can produce special protective clothing; There are more family workshops and less leading enterprises with large production scale; More enterprises only produce and process special protective clothing, and less enterprises have the ability of R & D and innovation. Due to the small production scale of most enterprises and the lack of large leading enterprises, the industrial concentration of special protective clothing is low 3. The lack of technology development ability leads to product homogeneity many special protective clothing manufacturers take low price as a means of competition in the market competition, which reduces the operating profit of enterprises and makes them unable to develop new products, thus making enterprises fall into the low price disorderly competition of product homogeneity, cost transparency and price marketization. This kind of disorderly competition not only affects the normal development of the special protective clothing market, but also affects the normal business activities of some enterprises< 1n recent years, with the rise of labor costs and the improvement of production environment requirements, many special protective clothing manufacturers have moved their production bases from coastal cities to inland cities in order to reduce costs, and some enterprises have moved from cities to rural areas. Due to the lack of skilled workers, many special protective clothing production enterprises have to adopt the production form of outsourcing processing, resulting in the lack of supervision of clothing processing procedures, product quality can not be guaranteed, and then the quality of special protective clothing can not be improved and developed 5. The product technology content is low, and the product R & D ability is weak most of the manufacturers of special protective clothing in China produce and process all kinds of special protective clothing by outsourcing, so their protective performance can only be determined according to the test data provided by textile fabric enterprises. The technological innovation or patent application of some enterprises is only utility model, not the research and development of fabric functionality< There is a significant gap between domestic brands and imported brands in terms of product quality and protection performance. the international well-known enterprises of safety protection products entering the Chinese market, such as DuPont company and rexland company, pay more attention to the development of protection function. Some protective clothing is not only light weight, breathable and soft, but also can prevent dust, corrosion, liquid penetration and radiation, so it has a wide range of application. 1n recent years, the development of protective function and fashion design of domestic special protective clothing have also made progress, but the gap is still obvious. 1n particular, it is necessary to speed up the development of protective function of special protective clothing fabrics and narrow the industrial gap between China and developed countries. At the same time, we hope to constantly improve and improve the national standard of special protective clothing, through the revision of the standard, so as to improve the overall level of domestic special protective clothing< With the continuous development of China's economy, the party and government pay more and more attention to the work of safety production and environmental protection, as well as the labor force
