With tightening government regulations and policies increasingly being framed to improve industrial worker safety, the market for flame resistant markets will receive a forward push. The global flame resistant fabrics market is poised for a healthy CAGR of 6.7% in revenue terms between 2014 and 2020, says Transparency Market Research in its latest report. The market for flame resistant fabrics is expected to go from US$3.12 bn in 2013 to US$4.87 bn by 2020. The findings are discussed in detail in TMR’s report, titled ‘Flame Resistant Fabrics Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020.’ In terms of volume, the demand for flame resistant fabrics globally was estimated to be 298.2 mn square meters. 


The two key drivers that are enabling the growth and expansion of the global flame resistant fabrics market are: a rising demand for such fabric from industrial facilities (especially the oil and gas industry) and a bevy of regulations being implemented worldwide to ensure safe working conditions in industrial facilities. While these drivers will enable the market to log a healthy growth rate, companies in the flame resistant fabrics market will need to find ways to bring down product prices so as to compete better with other conventional materials. Moreover, several growth markets in Asia Pacific still suffer from a lack of enough awareness pertaining to worker safety. This will likely slow down the adoption of flame resistant fabrics in these markets. The impact of these restraints could be alleviated to some degree by focusing on emerging countries, where the demand for protective clothing is steadily rising.
