Transparency Market Research has released a new market report titled “Flame Resistant Fabrics Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020.” According to the report, the global flame resistant fabric market was valued at USD 3.12 billion in 2013 and is anticipated to reach USD 4.87 billion by 2020, expanding at a CAGR of 6.7% between 2014 and 2020. In terms of volume, the global flame resistant fabrics market stood at 298.2 million square meters in 2013. —
Implementation of government regulations related to the use of flame resistant wear in different industries, especially in oil & gas and chemical industries, is the primary driver for the global demand for flame resistant fabrics. Safety of workers in these industries is a major concern due to the high risk of fire accidents. Along with industrial wear, firefighting services and defense services that require flame resistant properties in their uniforms are the major users of flame resistant fabrics. However, lack of awareness coupled with high cost of these products is projected to hamper market growth. Emerging economies are likely to be the significant users of flame resistant fabrics in the near future. These economies are witnessing substantial growth in end-use industries.
Key application sectors for flame resistant fabrics include industrial protective clothing, law enforcement and firefighting services, transport, and others such as home and institutional furnishings. Industrial protective clothing was a major application for flame resistant fabrics, accounting for about 53% of the global demand in 2013. Growth in chemical and oil & gas sectors is the key driver for development of the flame resistant fabrics market, especially in emerging economies. Additionally, adoption of safety regulations similar to that in developed economies is expected to fuel demand for flame resistant fabrics in these sectors. On the other hand, law enforcement forces and firefighting services, which include the defense sector, are projected to experience sluggish growth due to decreasing revenues in the defense sector. The transport sector is another segment that is anticipated to drive the flame resistant fabrics market in the next few years due to increasing usage of high performance fabrics in automobile, aircraft and railways. Others application that includes home and institutional furnishings is expected to experience moderate growth in the near future; however, it is likely to lose market share to growing segments.
