Industrial protective fabrics market to witness remarkable proceeds from the notable demand for arc flash suits

Posted on Updated on

The industrial protective fabrics market is slated to witness a prolific demand over the next few years owing to continuous rise in manufacturing, construction and oil and gas exploration activities worldwide. Numerous cases of chemical and industrial accidents occurring annually have prompted businesses and governments to enforce stringent safety regulations and process norms to protect employees in hazardous working environments. Subsequently, effective personal protective equipment (PPE) made using various materials are being deployed that meet the critical requirements of workplace safety, providing substantial growth opportunity to the industrial protective fabrics market. Frequent human errors during operations which lead to unpredictable mishaps make it necessary to adopt decisive protection strategies.

Innovative industrial fabrics such as polyester, polyolefins, polyamide, aramid and even cotton fibers help protect workers against fire, chemical hazard, electric sparks or biohazards they might encounter while performing everyday tasks. The oil and gas sector alone represents a crucial application area for the industrial protective fabrics market, since oil drilling and refinery operations entail considerable fire and injury risk. A small mistake could lead to fire in one part of an oil rig, which can quickly spread to other sections and cause fatalities, along with millions in damages. Flame resistant suits would be indispensable during these situations to help implement fire safety measures and avert major industrial disasters.

Apparently, electrocution is one of the leading causes of industrial accidents and results in several fatalities every year all over the world. It is believed that most of the electrical accidents which could take place in oil and gas facilities can be attributed to an arc flash, an extremely hazardous type of electrical shorting fault. The event occurs when a large electric current passes through ionized air or gases due to different reasons, including manual errors, equipment failure, gaps in insulation or surface impurities on the conductor. Today, the vast scale at which oil companies undertake exploration activities will generate extensive demand for arc flash suits and immensely propagate the industrial protective fabrics market.

In essence, arc flash suits are designed to safeguard a technician from arc flash heat exposures and minimize any burn injuries sustained, in addition to providing valuable time to escape a possible secondary explosion in the area. Considering the amount of flammable liquids and gases accompanying an oil and gas facility, occurrence of an arc flash can be catastrophic. Undoubtedly, arc flash clothing will be a vital component in a company’s inventory for effectively protecting its employees and minimizing the extent of any burns or other injury. According to a long-term study conducted by Electricite de France, an estimated 77% of all electrical injuries taking place on the job are a result of arc flash incidents, demonstrating the broad scope of the industrial protective fabrics market.

A key driver for the consumption for arc flash suits is the growing awareness among enterprises about the prevention of industrial accidents and support from regulatory agencies who impose strict industrial standards. For instance, the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration has directed businesses to provide necessary PPE to workers at no extra cost, including all types of protective clothing. The National Fire Protection Association’s NFPA 70E article specifies the need for electrical hazard analysis for areas where high voltage systems are being operated, further helping to determine the use of industrial protective fabrics against arc flash.

Electrical installations play a prominent role in the operations of oil refineries and drilling rigs and warrant significant concentration of funds towards safety analysis and PPE allocation. With tremendous investments made for exploring new oil and gas fields as well as the growth of various other business verticals, the industrial protective fabrics market will exceed annual valuation of more than US$9 billion by 2025. Leading players outlining the industry’s competitive hierarchy include Huntsman Corporation, DuPont, W. Barnet, Honeywell, Loyal Textiles Mills and Teijin, among others.
