Flame resistant fabrics are textiles possessing flame resistance properties is used to manufacture apparels, furnishing and garments for application in industries such as oil & gas, construction and infrastructure, mining, military and chemical for protecting labors working in these industries. These fabrics are used as fire barriers, it is manufactured as protective clothing to offer protection and safety to workers from direct and indirect exposure to fire and electric arc. Flame resistant fabrics are textiles that consist better fire-retardant properties in comparison of other fabrics due to its chemically treated fireproof fabrics which is primarily produced from synthetic fibers and natural fibers. Synthetic fibers involve raw material such as aramid, polyester and acrylic whereas natural fibers comprise of cotton, wool and silk.
Growing demand for flame resistant fabric is primarily due to stringent industries regulations which regulates workers protection norms and maintains safety at workplace, is driving the overall flame resistant fabric market. Notably, the rising demand from oil and gas, military, and constructution industry in most of the developing nations of Asia Pacific will augment growth over the forecast timeframe.
High cost of production and huge investment for R&D is ristricting the global flame resistant fabric market. Implementation of new equipment and technologies as well as heavy maintenance cost is challenging the investors and manufactures of the flame resistant fabric market. However, the high R&D cost for developing innovative technologies will negatively affect the market, hindering the growth.
