Flame resistant fabrics have been witnessing remarkable rise in demand over the past few years. The increasing application of protective clothing in the defense sector has boosted the global flame resistant fabrics market significantly in the recent times. Apart from this, the implementation of stringent government rules and policies pertaining to the safety of workers at construction sites is also fueling the demand for flame resistance fabrics substantially across the world.

Europe to Remain Dominant in Global Flame Resistant Fabric Market
North America, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East and Africa are the main regional markets for flame resistant fabrics in the world. In 2015, Europe led the global market and was closely followed by Asia Pacific.

The increase in the implementation of government regulations related to clothing upholstery, and wall covering applications in the last few years have boosted the demand for flame resistant fabrics in Europe. The regional market is likely to remain dominant in the coming years. Other regional markets are also expected to rise at a healthy rate in the near future.

Demand for Flame Resistant Fabrics to Rise in Transport Segment

In 2015, the demand for these fabrics was the highest in the industrial protective clothing application with a majority share of the overall demand. However, the transport segment is likely to register the fastest growth in the demand for these fabrics in the near future.
