Flame-resistant Fabrics Market Analysis

End-user (Industrial, Oil & Gas, Building & Construction, Defense &Public Safety Services, Transportation)

The global flame-resistant fabrics market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by the end-user industry into industrial, oil & gas, building & construction, defense & public safety services, and transportation. Out of the five types of end-use industry, the oil & gas segment is estimated to gain the largest market share over the projected time frame. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the higher number of oil reserves in the world, followed by a higher number of people employed in the oil & gas industry. There are around 1240 billion barrels in OPEC countries and nearly 3 billion in non-OPEC countries. Furthermore, according to the International Labor Organization, the petroleum industry directly employs close to 6 million people, while it indirectly generates over ten times that many jobs. Moreover, owing to gaseous air or liquid leaks, the possibility of fire exists in the majority of operations. Therefore, it is necessary for workers in the oil and gas industry to wear clothing made up of heat-and-flame resistance fabric.

Application (Apparel, Non-Apparel)

The global flame-resistant fabrics market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into apparel and non-apparel. Amongst these two segments, the apparel segment is expected to garner a significant share. The growth of the apparel segment is ascribed to a rise in the number of firefighters employed for public safety. Along with public safety, they are also responsible for their own safety. Flame-resistant fabrics are the most commonly used for making jackets and uniforms for firefighters, these uniforms are fire and shockproof, helping to prevent the firefighter from catching on fire or getting burned by a nearby fire. The National Fire Department Registry has 27,183 fire departments in the United States. Moreover, in 2020, there were around 1,041,200 career and volunteer firefighters in the United States.
