Fire-resistant fabrics are textiles that have been engineered to outperform conventional materials in terms of fire resistance, either through the use of fireproof fibers or chemical treatment. When exposed to flame, the fiber swells and grows thicker, producing a protective barrier between the fire source and the skin. In the medium term, the market is being driven by rising demand for fire-resistant fabrics in residential and commercial furnishings, demanding industrial regulations for fabrics, and increased demand from South America's mining industry. Rapid development in the BRICS countries is expected to create opportunities over the projection period.
In the transportation business, fire-resistant materials are used in the building of trains, automobiles, aircraft, and ships. The global transportation sector is predicted to expand at a healthy clip as a result of foreign investment in the development of improved railways, metro, and rail networks. The industry's growth is primarily driven by increased passenger traffic as a result of increased consumer spending power and improved air connectivity. This increased passenger traffic is also fueling a solid demand for additional planes.
On the other hand, the high cost of raw materials required to manufacture fire-resistant fabric, the absence of safety regulations, and the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic are projected to restrain the market's growth.
