The fire resistant fabric market is projected to be worth $5,036.2 Million in 2020 from $3,869.6 Million in 2015 at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2015 to 2020. This is on account of stringency in industrial regulations & standards, increasing safety concerns in industries and growth in the end-use industries such as oil & gas, chemical and infrastructure. Fire resistant fabrics are used in various applications such as industrial protective clothing, defense & public safety services and transport (railways, aircrafts, automotive, marine).

Europe is the largest market for fire resistant fabrics majorly driven due to the tight industrial regulations. North America ranks second in terms of market size which is followed by Asia-Pacific.

Fire resistant fabric manufacturers are focusing on improving the overall performance of the fabrics as well as incorporating additional functions such as cooling and impact resistance to increase the comfort and durability of their products. New and better products by suppliers, and increasing requirements from end-use industries are expected to create new opportunities in the fire resistant fabric market.

The high cost of the fabrics is a big factor restraining the growth of the market. New technologies or techniques which could reduce the cost of the fire resistant fabric would also create a global opportunity for the growth of the market.
