Flame resistant fabrics are chemically treated clothing materials with strong flame retardant properties. These fabrics are capable of extinguishing a fire by themselves. The flame-retardant chemicals on these fabrics start reacting after coming into contact with the fire. The heat of the fire acts as the catalyst and enhances the impact of the reaction.

According to the report, the rise in the industrial sector across the world has fueled the demand for industrial protective clothing, thereby increasing the need for flame resistant fabrics significantly.
