Industrial Protective Fabrics Market size worth over USD 8.40 billion by 2028

  • Published Date: June 30, 2022

According to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc., the Industrial Protective Fabrics Market size is set to surpass USD 8.40 billion by 2028.

Industrial protective fabrics are designed to guard workers against dangers that pose a serious threat to their lives and can result in significant injuries. These provide protection against radiation, dangerous particles, bacteria or viruses, toxic chemicals, and fire or extremely hot temperatures. The product has uses in a variety of fields, including oil and gas, chemicals, food processing, the automotive and agricultural industries, as well as several production and maintenance tasks.

Worker safety is of high priority in hazardous working environments including manufacturing, chemical industries, and construction sites, where workers must deal with construction debris, surface impurities, electric hazards, chemical spills, and damp conditions that may lead to body injuries. Increasing fatal injury frequencies at workplaces have encouraged the use of personal protective equipment, mainly in several industries including construction, food, oil & gas, transport, and pharmaceuticals.

Rising demand from end-use industries such as defense, automotive and aerospace is expected to propel polybenzimidazole market growth.

Global industrial protective fabrics market from Polybenzimidazole Fiber (PBI) is expected to be valued at over USD 2.25 billion by 2028. Polybenzimidazole fibre (PBI) is a heat-resistant synthetic fiber manufactured by a chemical reaction of aromatic tetraamine and aromatic carboxylic. This fabric is mostly used to make filtration materials, plastic reinforcements, and heat and flame-resistant apparel. Due to its superior chemical & thermal stability, the demand for PBI fabrics for manufacturing protective clothing is expected to increase during the forecast period.

Cotton fiber raw material segment is expected to show noteworthy growth during the forecast period. Cotton is used for manufacturing fabric for multiple industries such as abrasives, household textiles, and clothing for both fashion and industrial protection. Cotton has desirable qualities like mildew, stain, wrinkle, abrasion, and flame resistance, which should increase demand for the product. Shifting manufacturing preferences toward natural fibers as a result of sustainable manufacturing, lower residue formation, and strict environmental restrictions is expected to propel the Industrial protective fabrics market growth during forecast period.

Growth in demand for industrial protective clothing owing to its ability to protect against chemical, electrical, and biological hazards is expected to drive market growth.

Industrial protective clothing applications segment is expected to cross USD 3.70 billion by 2028. Industrial protective clothing protects workers from dangers in harsh working circumstances. The stringent laws for worker safety are expected to encourage industries to provide good quality protective fabrics to the workers.

Clean room clothing apparel are used in environments with controlled contamination levels like paint booths, laboratories, and research & development facilities. Clothing for clean rooms is comprised of materials that prevent dust, germs, gases, and aerosol particles from spreading from industrial workers to the environment. High investment in research and development activities from biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries have raised the demand for cleanroom facilities.

Personnel working in industries associated with metal, glass, and sharp gear materials are the primary consumers of mechanical protective wear. These industrial protective fabrics are intended to safeguard industrial workers from risks like cuts, punctures, and abrasions. The booming automotive and construction industries as well as the rising demand for mechanical protective clothing in the metal fabrication industry due to rising worker safety concerns are expected to drive the industrial protective fabrics market share.

A growing manufacturing sector along with a huge employment base should drive market growth in the Asia Pacific region.

Asia pacific industrial protective fabrics market value is expected to exceed USD 2.20 billion by 2028. The expanding manufacturing sector in China owing to supportive government initiatives including Made in China 2026 should drive the Chinese manufacturing sector. The presence of a large automotive sector along with tight government regulations for worker safety at manufacturing sites is expected to positively impact the business growth in the Asia Pacific region.

The effects of the Russia-Ukraine conflict are likely to impact economies in this region as large portions of energy are being imported into this region from Russia. With decreased supply and increased prices, the overall processing cost of various commodities including industrial protective fabrics is likely to get affected. Nevertheless, shifting foreign manufacturing facilities to Asia-pacific countries due to lower labor & production costs should boost domestic production
