Industrial protective clothing fabric is a specially designed fabric that possesses the ability to withstand extreme conditions such as high temperature and radiation. In addition, these fabrics exhibit resistance against chemicals and fire. They can be both manufactured from synthetic fibers, including polyesters aramid, acrylic, and others and from natural fibers such as cotton, wool, and silk. They are used in the fabrication of protective gears for workers across various industries, including construction, oil & gas, chemical, manufacturing factories, and healthcare & medical sector.

COVID-19 impact analysis

The novel coronavirus pandemic has had severe impacts on the global industrial protective clothing fabrics market.

  • The nationwide lockdown imposed by the governments of several countries has resulted in disruptions in supply chains, shortage in supply of raw materials, and dearth of labor. All these factors have collectively delayed industrial operations, and in some cases, the operations were halted temporarily. This directly impacted the demand for industrial protective clothing fabric in the first half of 2020.
  • Major end-user industries such as construction and oil & gas industries are severely affected by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, which, in turn, has negatively impacted the growth of the global industrial protective clothing fabrics market. 
  • However, as the fight against the pandemic proceeds, the demand for protective clothing for healthcare officials increases exponentially. It has become an obligation for the doctors, nurses and other staffs who work in the hospitals to wear a protective gear while treating patients. Thus, specifically in healthcare-related application, protective clothing fabric is witnessing significant adoption, which is anticipated to contribute toward the growth of the global market.

Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers, and impact analysis:

Ordinary clothing is susceptible to damage easily when exposed too harsh conditions such as fire and corrosive chemicals, such as acid, Thus, the need for high resistance protective clothing for the safety of workers.  Consequently, with increasing industrialization across the globe, the demand for protective gears rising in various industries, which is anticipated to augment the market growth. 

Furthermore, various regulatory bodies such as the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) have enforced stringent legislations for the safety of workers in factories. As a result, the use of protective clothing increased in major industries, which has led to the escalation in demand for industrial protective clothing fabric.

Moreover, owing to high chemical resistance, industrial protective clothing fabrics are used in protective gears for workers who perform risky operations in industries such as oil & gas and construction. The superior moisture transmitting property of these fabrics has increased its application in making clothes for the defense personal in military. These fabrics are further used for the production of spacesuits due to its high resistance against heat and superior strength. However, the fluctuating cost of superior quality fibers is anticipated to hinder the growth of the market and the similar trends are expected during the forecast period.

The industrial protective clothing fabrics market in Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at a tremendous pace due to rapid industrialization in the emerging economies such as India and China. The market in the Latin America is expected to grow steadily, owing to rise in number of oil & gas reserves in countries such as Brazil. The market in Europe is also expected to boost the market in near future, owing to increase in applications of protective clothing fabrics in the medical sector in hospitals.
