Flame Resistant Fabrics Market – Complete Study of Current Trends and Growth Drivers For 2020
Apparels ignite and burn when exposed to ignition sources such as electric arcs or flames. Everyday garments and furnishings continue to burn until the fire is extinguished or all flammable materials are consumed. Flame resistant fabrics are chemically engineered to resist ignition, prevent flames from spreading to the immediate area of high heat impingement and self-extinguish immediately upon removal of the ignition source. Most flame resistant fabrics are inherently flame resistant, treated flame resistant or blends. Inherently flame resistant fabrics possess flame resistant properties that are naturally part of the fibers. On the other hand, treated flame resistant fabrics are coated with flame resistant chemicals. Blends, also known as hybrids, are a combination of treated and inherently flame resistant fibers. MHP and Tecasafe are blends of different fibers and posses properties of synthetic and natural fibers. Flame resistant fabrics are manufactured from synthetic fibers or natural fibers. Synthetic fibers (polyester, aramid and acrylic) are derived from petroleum and natural fibers (wool, cotton and silk) that are obtained from plants and animals.
Flame resistant fabrics are used to manufacture apparels, garments and furnishings in a wide range of industries including oil and gas, transportation, healthcare, military and hospitality. Companies provide an array of flame resistant fabrics to maximize flexibility in design, engineering and cost, while meeting government regulations. Flame resistant fabrics are used to manufacture protective clothing for workers in oil and gas, and chemical industries and in law enforcement agencies. Industrial protective clothing is the major segment, which accounted for more than half of the global demand for flame resistant fabrics in 2013. Law enforcement and firefighting services is another key application segment of these fabrics. Flame resistant fabrics are used in uniforms for firefighting, military, navy and air force sectors. These fabrics are also used to manufacture internal upholstery, decorative tickings and components of mattresses in homes, hotels, ships and hospitals. Additionally, flame resistant fabrics are used to fabricate smoke and fire curtains, which are built into the ceiling and structure of commercial buildings and large warehouses.
