Global Fire Resistant Fabrics Market is projected to be valued $6.7 Billion by 2024; with a CAGR of 6.1% from 2017 to 2025. Fire resistant fabrics are textiles possessing flame resistance propertiesthat are more fire retardant than other fabrics owing to its chemical treatment or exclusively manufactured fireproof fabrics. These fabrics are used to manufacture apparels, furnishing and garments for application in industries such as oil & gas, construction and infrastructure, military, mining and chemical for protecting labors working in these industries.However, the one thing you need to know when assessing fire-resistant technologies is that 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.
Growing flame-resistant cloth or material demand for stage drapery or curtains used in public spaces such as school, theatre, and other special events, rising safety regulations in developed and developing countries, growing fire hazards such as combustible dust explosions in pulp and paper industry, flash fire, food processing and paint industry are the major factors driving the growth of the market. On the other hand, high fabrics cost and lack of awareness are few factors restraining market growth over the forecast period. Growing safety and security regulations by government is anticipated to create further opportunities for the market in the coming future years.
