Flame Resistant Fabrics Market for Industrial Protective Clothing, Law Enforcement & Firefighting Services, Transport, and Other Applications - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2016 - 2024

Flame resistant fabrics are manufactured from synthetic fibers or natural fibers. Flame resistant fabrics are used to manufacture apparels, garments, and furnishings for a wide range of industries such as oil & gas, transportation, health care, military, and hospitality. Flame resistant fabrics are either inherently flame resistant or treated flame resistant, or blends. Inherently flame resistant fabrics possess flame resistant properties that are naturally part of the fibers. Treated fabrics are chemically treated to induce flame resistant properties. Blends, also known as hybrids, are a combination of treated and inherently flame resistant fibers.

Increase in expenditure on protective clothing in the global defense industry is expected to fuel the demand for flame resistant fabrics. Protective clothing comprises garments and related gear for protection from extreme temperature environments, harmful environment, low visibility, and ballistic protection. Flame resistant fabrics act as protective garments for human bodies, thereby lowering the chances of injuries that might occur due to fire. Stringent government regulations encourage manufacturers of garments, upholsteries, and furnishings to adopt strict methods of fire tests. This is driving the demand for flame resistant fabrics. Lack of awareness about these fabrics and high cost of these products are estimated to hamper the market during the forecast period.

In terms of volume, industrial protective clothing dominated the market, followed by law enforcement & firefighting services, and transport in 2015. Flame resistance fabrics are used to manufacture industrial protective clothing for workers to provide protection against industrial fires such as pool fires, BLEVE (Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapor Explosion) fires, flash fires, and jet fires. Industrial protective clothing acts as a stable and inert barrier between fire and skin, protecting the wearer from direct exposure. The protective clothing application was hampered in 2015 due to the slowdown in oil & gas resource development. Flame resistant fabrics are employed in the manufacture of uniforms and gears of the law enforcement & firefighting personnel. Flame resistant fabrics are used in the transportation sector to manufacture a diverse range of products for automobile, aviation, and railway industries. Flame resistant fabrics are used in high-temperature hoses such as those feeding hot air to inlet manifolds. Transport application is like to be the fastest growing segment, followed by industrial protective clothing.

In terms of demand, Europe accounted for more than 30% share of the flame resistant fabrics market in 2015. Growth in the transportation sector is the major factor driving the flame resistant fabrics market in the region. Germany and Italy are the primary consumers of flame resistant fabrics due to high demand from end-user industries, especially the automobile racing industry. Global demand for flame resistant fabrics is anticipated to rise at a CAGR of more than 6% between 2016 and 2024. In terms of volume, Asia Pacific was the second largest consumer of flame resistant fabrics in 2015. Rapid industrialization in emerging economies of Asia Pacific has increased the employment rate in industrial sectors. This has further propelled the demand for protective clothing.  Expansion in end-user industries such as transportation and law enforcement is estimated to boost the consumption of flame resistant fabrics in the region. North America was the third largest market for flame resistant fabrics market in 2015. Demand for flame resistant fabrics is likely to increase significantly in Middle East & Africa during the forecast period owing to the growth in industrial sector over the last few years in the region.  

Key players operating in the flame resistant fabrics market include DuPont, Milliken & Company, Lenzing AG, Teijin Aramid, and TenCate. Additionally, a number of small players have emerged in the unorganized sector, especially in Asia Pacific.
