Global Fire-Retardant Fabric Market Size

The global fire-retardant fabric market is projected to grow from USD 3.5 billion in 2022 to USD 4.8 billion by 2027 at a CAGR value of 6.2% from 2022 to 2027. Flame-resistant fabrics are textiles with flame resistance capabilities that are used to make clothes, furnishings, and garments for usage in sectors such as oil and gas, infrastructure sector, manufacturing, defense, and chemicals to protect workers. The demand for fire retardant fabrics in the United States is expected to grow at a rate of 3% per year, bringing the market to over 1 billion by 2050.

The rapid rise of industrialization has brought with it a slew of known and undiscovered threats, which has shifted the attention to safety, necessitating the use of flame retardant materials. Furthermore, the demand for flame retardants in the electric industry to reduce the combustibility of semiconductors, as well as the desire for flame retardant chemical compounds by numerous end-users such as the automotive manufacturing and construction materials, are driving the global flame retardant fabrics market.

The market is likely to benefit from rising flame-resistant fabric demand for theatrical drapery used in public venues such as theatres, schools, and other special events, as well as the availability of different fabric-fire procedures such as CRIB-5 and BS-476. Furthermore, the use of fire-resistant fabrics in firefighters' uniforms and gear to reduce fire hazards is expected to boost global demand. However, the high R&D cost for developing innovative technologies will negatively affect the market, hindering growth.

The available variety of flame retardants (FRs) is useable for various types of materials including cellulose, PET, polyamides, plastics, polyolefin, wood, cables, electrical and electronic products. The burgeoning world's population, infrastructural facilities, and industrialization all have an impact on the use of flame retardant materials. Furthermore, increased community and widespread information on safety and disaster mitigation, fire legislation, and workplace safety may be vital for market growth.

Wool is widely regarded as the most fire-resistant natural fiber since it is challenging to ignite and it may self-extinguish minor flames. Silk also burns gradually, is difficult to ignite, and in some cases, self-extinguishes. Wool production in the United Kingdom (UK) reached a high point in 2019, with an output of 70.5 thousand tonnes as there were more than 22 million sheep in the UK in 2019 whereas, India produced roughly 36 million kg of wool in 2019, a decline from the prior fiscal year. The wool industry is among the most important segments of the country's textile industry.

Textiles are now one of the most common product categories in which flame retardants are used. Textiles were one of five primary product types that consumed 88 % of global flame retardant sales in 2019, with building items, insulated wire and cable, electronic devices, and motor vehicles accounting for the other four.

The pandemic harmed the fire-resistant fabric business. As a result, the price and quantity chain was interrupted, which had an impact on the market. Due to the epidemic situation, businesses, industrial equipment, and mining companies have been put on pause for the previous two years, resulting in the non-use of protective apparel.

global fire-retardant fabric market

Fire Retardant Fabric Market: By Material

Based on the material, the market is segmented into cotton, nylon, aramid, and polyesters. The material or apparel market segment holds the largest fire market share. The nylon material segment is expected to grow the fastest in the market from 2022 to 2027. The growth can be because this material is due to its resistance to high heat and durability compared to cotton and polyester materials further nylon’s growing demand mainly by many industries, fire companies, defense, and the government is contributing to this segment’s growth.

Fire Retardant Fabric Market: By Application Type

Based on the application type, the fire-retardant fabric market is segmented into protective wear, upholstery, tents and coverings, curtains and drapes, and others. The protective wear segment is expected to hold a larger share as compared to other segments. Flame-resistant and retardant fabrics are being widely used in the production of industrial protective apparel to establish a stable and passive barrier for workers exposed to high temperatures. This provides great safety against temperature extremes and direct flame contact for the user, boosting its appeal among professionals and fueling global demand.

Fire Retardant Fabric Market: By Processing Method

Woven, non-woven, and knitted based are the segmentations depending on the processing method. The knitted-based segment is expected to grow the fastest in the fire-retardant fabric market from 2022 to 2027. Knit is a cool, permeable fabric, but woven is thicker and more wind resistant. Knit fabric has a lower labor cost of manufacture than woven fabric since it is made from a single yarn. In addition, the knit fabric resists wrinkles, whereas woven fabric holds creases effectively. Furthermore, woven cloth frays easily and requires more finishing than knit fabric.
