In 2018, the Golisano Institute for Sustainability (GIS) at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) dedicated the Bal Dixit Laboratory for Advanced Materials and Fire Protection. The new laboratory was made possible by a $2 Million gift from Sudhakar “Bal” Dixit, the founder of Newtex.

Fire Resistant Fabric Market

The Global Fire Resistant Fabric Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% to reach a market value of USD XX million by 2026. 

Fire resistant fabrics are also known as flame retardant fabrics. Inherently fire resistant fabrics are naturally fire resistant because of its natural fiber. Synthetic fibers are extremely flame resistant includes glass fibers and modacrylic; fabrics will remain flame resistant for a lifetime without any additional treatment and treated with a fire-resistant chemical to resist heat and flames. Some of the recognized brands and types of fire resistant fabrics are nomex flight suits, kevlar, nomex, indura, PBI, proban, and others. Treated flame resistant fabrics are sprayed or dipped into flame resistant chemical polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs).

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standard NFPA 701 focus on methods of fire tests for flame propagation of textiles and films. To meet this standard, fabric must be burned and tested on three things: the measure of the flame, char length, and flaming residue. The other standard is NFPA 70E standard, NFPA 70E states that employees shall wear flame-resistant clothing where there is possibility of exposure to an electric arc flash, and it provides comprehensive, multi-step instructions on how to protect from electrical arc hazard.

 Global Fire Resistant Fabric Market – Market Dynamics 

The global Fire Resistant Fabric Market is primarily driven by extensive use of flame resistant fabric in oil & gas industry for the safety of workers working in such high accident risk environment. The new technology and the awareness of end users towards the benefit of the products have driven the global fire resistant fabric market.

Rapid developing industrial sector has increased demand in the global flame resistant fabrics market. Moreover, industries characterized by hazardous working conditions have further augmented demand in this market. High demand for flame-retardants in the electric industry as they help in reducing the flammability of semiconductors triggered demand in this market. In addition to that, the demand for flame-retardants chemicals increased in several end users, including construction and automotive industries are other factors fueling the global flame retardant fabrics market

The regulation imposed by National Fire Protection Association for the testing of fabric quality for the protection of end user, this will increase the cost for the manufacturer, has been a major restraint for the global manufacturers of fire resistant fabric. In addition, fire resistant apparels are heavy to carry for the users which might hamper global fire resistant fabric market during the forecast period.


Global Fire Resistant Fabric Market – Segment Analysis

By product type, the global Fire Resistant Fabric Market is segmented into Treated fire resistant fabric (Cotton, Nylon, and Others) and Inherent fire resistant fabric (Aramid fibers, Polybenzimidazole, Wool, and Kevla). Inherent flame resistant properties cannot be washed out or damaged through exposure to chemicals in the workplace or laundering practices, whether at-home or commercial. FR-treated garments, however, may be damaged by chlorine bleach, the combination of hydrogen peroxide (“oxygen bleach”) with hard water, or exposure to oxidizing chemicals in the workplace. However, treated fire resistant fabrics are made flame-resistant by the application of flame-retardant chemicals. A chemical additive in the fiber or treatment on the fabric is used to provide some level of flame resistance. During a fire, chemically dependent fabrics rely on a chemical reaction to extinguish the flame. This reaction is triggered by the heat of the fire and the amount of time the fabric is exposed to the fire. 

By application type, the global Fire Resistant Fabric Market is segmented into apparel and non-apparel. In 2018, Apparel segment accounted for majority share in the market. However, Non apparel fabric segment is growing at a rapid rate owing to its increasing demand in place mats, outdoor furniture, sports bags, tents and awning, glove cuffing and several other safety applications.


Global Fire Resistant Fabric Market– Geographical Analysis

By geography, the global Fire Resistant Fabric market is segmented into North America, Asia-Pacific (APAC), Europe, South America, and Middle East and Africa (MEA).

APAC region is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. High industrialization growth in the region, especially in China and India, is estimated to fuel the demand for fire resistant fabric in the region. Driven by the regulations and growing end-user base from industries like oil & gas, defense, and transportation, the market is expected to witness a significant growth during the forecast period.

In North America, growth in the construction market will drive the market for fire resistant fabric in the region. The construction market in the region is expected to grow during the forecast period mostly led by economic growth and increased demand for residential dwellings in the region across different states. For instance, the residential construction (new privately owned housing units started) market in the US witnessed a growth of 2.47% in 2017 from 2016. 

U.S. also witnesses a growth of more than 140% in the production of crude oil since 2008, mainly due to the Shale revolution. It is expected that U.S. crude and product exports will outpace imports by 2020. Therefore, continuous development in oil and gas industry in the region, North America fire resistant fabrics market is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period.


 Global Fire Resistant Fabric Market– Competitive Analysis 

Fire Resistant Fabric market is highly competitive and thus manufacturers continuously focus on developing new strategies in order to grab more number of customers across the globe. Over the coming years, companies are expected to focus on potential growth markets for Fire Resistant Fabric. To that end, besides expanding their presence, companies are expected to formulate effective distribution strategies to make their presence felt in the upcoming markets for Fire Resistant Fabric. Merger, acquisition and product development are key strategies adopted by leading players.

The major players include DuPont (Dow Inc.), PBI Performance Products, Inc., Koninklijke Ten Cate nv, Glen Raven, Inc., and Huntsman International LLC. Other key players in the market are Newtex Industries Inc., Lenzing AG, Solvay S.A., Milliken & Company, and Teijin Aramid.

Aramid fibres from companies like DuPont create inherently flame resistant fibres, with brands such as DuPont Kevlar and DuPont Nomex. The actual structure of the fibre itself is not flammable. For inherently flame resistant fibres, the protection is built into the fibre itself and can never be worn away or washed out. In the case of Nomex, when exposed to flame, the aramid fibre swells and becomes thicker, forming a protective barrier between the heat source and the skin. This protective barrier stays supple until it cools, giving the wearer vital extra seconds of protection to escape.
