The Market

According to Work Cover, slip/fall injuries are estimated to cost $1.5 billion per annum. There are literally thousands of workplace incidents per year, and this doesn't include those that don't result in an injury... but potentially could have.

Add to this the thousands of slip/fall injuries among older persons, people with disabilities and the general public each year.

It is for reasons like this that Workers Compensation premiums are on the increase, and skyrocket for any business that experiences slip/fall claims.

In fact, WorkCover legislation requires an employer to "provide and maintain so far as practicable for employees a working environment that is safe and without risks to health."

WorkCover statistics show that slip/fall injuries are the No.#2 accident problem in the workplace

 

 

A study by Monash University researchers of injuries among people aged 65+ years found that 66% of reported cases were due to a fall of some nature. Where "Floors and Flooring Material" cause the fall, in 81% of cases where information was available, the fall was due to slippery, wet floors.

 A study by the Royal Australian College of Physicians in 1991 showed that 16% (one in six) patients suffering hip fractures die within 6 months and that 50% require long term nursing care.

 

 


Size of the Potential Market

Grip Guard has products that effectively treat many different types of surfaces including:

20,000,000 square metres and rising

16% (approx.)  

84% (approx.) 

 55% of total = 11,000,000 per sq meter per annum

Total market estimate 

Locally manufactured  

Imported tiles

Floor tiles

 

Many of these products are imported into Australia so statistics on the total market are difficult to determine. However, the estimated size of the ceramic tile market alone is huge.

That would make the amount of tiles laid over the last 10 years almost unimaginable. Remember that these numbers don't include the many square metros of terrazzo, granite and marble floors in place today and newly laid every year. And the cement/concrete floor market is enormous. Smooth finish cement/concrete pathways, driveways, steps, and warehouse and factory floors are a huge market. Add all these opportunities together to truly appreciate the size of the potential market for Grip Guard.
