Region :Global | Report ID: FBI103150 | Status : Ongoing



Flame retardant materials can be used successfully on both natural and synthetic fibres. Fibers are handled with a chemical that significantly reduces flammability of the fabrics and allows it to be virtually non-combustible. When a fire takes place the fabric-coated chemical responds with the fabric-generated gases and contaminates. Flame retardant fabric reduces the chance of fire by reducing the rate of growing flames. There are several innovative approaches that demonstrate impressive findings with the use of synthetic nanocomposite fibers. Bio-macromolecules have demonstrated surprising flame retardant properties when accumulated on synthetic compounds, such as cotton, and polyester. 

Growing demand for flammable fabric is mainly due to rigorous industry regulations that control workers' safety standards and retain workplace safety, continuing to drive the overall flammable fabric-resistant market. The chemical and oil & gas industries make extensive use of flammable fabrics for the security of workers because of the heavy risk of accidents in these sectors. Because of their chemical treatment or strictly fire-resistant fabrics, flame-resistant fabrics are typically more fire-resistant textiles than other fabrics.

Key Market Driver -

Stringent regulation protecting and maintaining safety at workplace drives the market

Key Market Restraint -

High production costs and huge R&D investments restrains the market

Global Flame Retardant Textile Industry Developments

  • In February 2016, Teijin ltd has announced that it has undergone a product launch and developed new Twaron and Technora para-aramide fibers. The reason behind was to secure the lodges and the relocation shelters from airborne volcanic debris. The new textiles offer superior heat resistance and elastic module.

  • In August 2015, Teijin Ltd., a global player of chemical specialities, has begun producing extremely dyeable meta-aramide fiber, at its new plant in Ayutthaya Province, Thailand.
