Occupational Safety Initiatives to Swell Demand for Protective Clothing Fabric
Injuries and on-job mortality at industrial sites due to fire explosion, chemical reactions, and gas leakage are responsible for occupational fatalities. This has led to the enforcement of stringent worker safety regulations. In April 2019, US Senate passed a bill to improve the safety of workers at the public sector, and in July 2019, the government of India announced a bill to reform its worker safety laws to bring organizations.
Such initiatives from regulatory authorities are likely to increase demand for the protective fabric clothes. On this premise, the global protective clothing fabric market is projected to create an absolute $ opportunity of more than US$ 1,800 million to be valued at US$ 4,407 million by the end of the forecast period (2019 – 2026), predicts the report published by Fact.MR.
Oil & Gas Industries to Witness Rampant Adoption of Protective Clothing Fabric on Back of Occupational Fatalities
Oil & gas industries are high risk as they deal with highly inflammable materials such as petroleum and gases. Therefore precautionary measures in order to ensure safety of workers is very essential in the oil & gas industry.
In order to control occupational fatality in oil & gas industry, in 2012, US government’s labor safety administration issued a memorandum that necessitates all workers in the oil & gas industry to wear flame resistant clothing to prevent injuries.
Oil & gas industries employ a large number people and are expected to create substantial job opportunities in the coming years. Fact.MR opines that oil & gas as an end use industry is projected to capture more than 17% share of the global protective clothing fabric market by the end of the forecast period (2019 - 2026).
Developed Economies to Offer Promising Growth Prospects
Governments of developed countries such as the US, Canada & leading countries in Europe have taken a firm stand on the safety of workers in order to reduce on-job mortality. Also, initiatives taken by government administrated organizations such as OSHA & EU-OSHA have led these regions to remain market leaders in the consumption of the protective clothing fabric. Fact.MR anticipates this trend to continue during the forecast period with developed regions such as North America and Europe projected to collectively hold more than 62% share in terms of value.
New Product Development to Underpin Sales of Protective Clothing Fabrics
Growing concerns regarding worker safety across various industries has resulted in an upsurge in the demand for effective protective clothing. Key manufacturers have been focusing on developing fabrics that offer not only thermal or chemical safety but also adequate level of comfort for workers allowing them to work pleasantly. Innovations in textile designs are expected to spur the demand for protective clothing fabrics.
Producers has developed protective clothing that offers improved fire resistance, and at the same time is light in weight, thinner, convenient to wear, and less bulky, providing improved working conditions. For instance, in October 2018, DuPont launched ‘Nomex Comfort’ - a new flame protection garment which is lightweight and provides enhanced comfort and breathability, designed for use in refineries, petrochemical plants, and hazardous operations where protection against chemical and fire hazard threats is required. In February 2019, Wardwell Ltd launched a comfortable workwear range specially designed for protection from arc flashes.
