Chemical Resistant Fabrics Market Size, Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook, Application Development Potential, Price Trends, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2020 - 2026

Report ID: GMI4370

Summary Methodology

Global Chemical Resistant Fabrics Market size is anticipated to attain a high growth rate as a result of increasing demand from medical industry in the forecast time.

Chemical resistant fabrics ensures protection against various types of chemicals in aerosol, vapor as well as in liquid form. Clothes made from these fabrics offers enhanced protection through reduced weight and improved breathability. The product provides a high degree of protection from a range of industrial chemicals and chemical agents. This is majorly attributed to unique features possessed by materials used to manufacture these fabrics such as high dielectric strength and low thermal conductivity. Oil & gas and chemical industries mostly use these fabrics to provide workers safety to avoid fatal accidents caused by toxic chemicals used in these sectors.

Rising concern for workers safety in oil & gas industry as a result of strict government regulations is the key factor driving demand of chemical resistant fabrics worldwide. The various stages of oil & gas industry such as extraction, processing and transportation involves dealing with harmful chemicals which can cause serious problems to human health. Benzene, methane and butane are few fumes generated from petroleum which can cause cancer and even damage the human nervous system, kidneys and lever. Therefore, to avoid any serious health problems, chemical resistant fabrics are adopted in the industry to ensure protection of workers at critical oil and gas sites. Increasing oil and gas exploration activities in North America caused by rising shale drilling activities is anticipated to boost the chemical resistant fabrics market size in the upcoming years.

High volatility in raw material prices can hamper the overall chemical resistant fabrics market growth by 2025. Most of the raw materials used in manufacturing chemical resistant fabrics are petroleum based derivates which are highly affected from crude oil price volatility. Therefore, such fluctuation in raw material prices may hamper production of these fabrics which in turn may result in declining chemical resistant fabrics market growth.

Global chemical resistant fabrics market is segmented based on raw materials into aramid, PBI, polyester, cotton fiber and others. Aramid fiber is a category of synthetic fabrics used across many industries including aerospace, military, oil & gas and many others due to its high heat resistant and chemical resistance properties. Moreover, polyester is also extensively used in manufacturing these fabrics as it has strong resistance to many substances including acids and oxidizers namely hydrogen peroxide and many solvents. It has a good resistance towards oils, lubricants and hydrocarbon fuels.

On the basis of end user segments, the market is segmented into architecture, oil & gas, medical care, fire control and others. Medical and oil & gas industry are likely to be the highest growth segments of chemical resistant fabrics market. A variety of chemicals are used across medical sector which can prove to be hazardous to patients and even workers. These toxic chemicals are used to treat patient, clean sterilize and disinfect surfaces and in many other applications. Antineoplastic drugs, anesthetic gases, aerosolized medications are few chemicals that can harm human health. In order to avoid any serious health issues, chemical resistant fabrics are employed in medical workplaces.

North America is expected to register itself as the highest growth market as a result of rapidly growing oil and gas industry in the coming years. Recovering shale drilling activities led to 1.1 million barrel per day growth in the U.S. which is a key influencer to the market growth. The U.S. has been a major contributor in supply growth of crude oil. The production is expected to reach about 11.8 million barrels per day. Thus, growing crude oil production is anticipated to trigger the product demand, to avoid health issues with workers in the industry. In Asia pacific, the growth is expected to arise from the architecture industry as a result of growing infrastructural investments in the emerging economies.

Global chemical resistant fabrics market is quite fragmented due to the presence of various large and small players in the industry. Some of the key market players are Glen Raven, Inc, Teijin Ltd, Kolon Industries Inc, I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, Milliken & Company, Koninklijke Ten Cate NV etc.
