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.

Manufacturing light, strong, corrosion resistant and durable components, whether big or small, is achievable through rotomoulding. Thus, the need for weight reduction in automobile, construction and material handling applications will boost the rotomoulding powder market consumption in the years ahead.

A wide variety or containers are available in the market for shipping and material handling, such as shipment containers, barrels and drums, refrigerated boxes and bulk containers, combined bins and military containers. The rotomoulding powder industry has gained massive remuneration owing to a large demand for small and heavy industry material handling containers worldwide. Rotomoulded crates and eskies are considered ideal for transporting vegetables, fruits, liquids and chemicals since most of such products are made from food-grade plastic. As they are long-lasting and do not deteriorate like wood or get corroded like metals, these containers can prove to be a good investment due to their utility in fulfilling innumerable material handling needs, promulgating the rotomoulding powder market. Many businesses opt for rotomoulded containers for transporting goods because their one-piece design offers a higher capacity for load-bearing and guarantees durability.

It is a well-known fact that global economic growth and the purchasing power of citizens immensely affect the material handling activities, as material handling orders are dependent on the demand for goods. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) in January 2018 had forecast that the global growth rate from 2018 to 2019 would be a strong 3.9%, indicating a positive industrial environment and the augmented need for material handling. The rotomoulding powder industry has additionally capitalized on a large number of small scale enterprises preferring rotomoulded containers and tanks for their low maintenance properties. Another promising source of revenue for the rotomoulding powder market could be the increasing number of recycling activities which require appropriate containers for sorting and handling waste materials.

To elaborate, environmental concerns and government initiatives have emphasized the need for waste management and have led to the establishment of numerous waste recycling and metal scrapping facilities across the globe. For catering to these requirements, manufacturers have been providing customized rotomoulded containers and bins to the waste management services or recycling plants, where different kinds of materials are handled every day, even chemically reactive ones. The Asia-Pacific (APAC) region comprises of several emerging economies where recycling initiatives are intensifying and thus presents a great opportunity for the rotomoulding powder market. Recently, it was revealed that just 8 countries in APAC are responsible for 63% of the total plastic waste flowing into the oceans. Add to it, the mounting surplus of electronic and metal scrap has escalated the waste recycling industry in the region, in turn highlighting the material handling requirements.

The APAC region subsequently contributed nearly 25% to the overall rotomoulding powder market in 2017, with the increased demand for containers as well as other rotomoulded plastic products like tanks, porta-loos, components used in construction and automobile parts. Lightweight parts help to reduce the gross vehicle weight and improve fuel efficiency, leading to the deployment of rotomoulded automobile components such as fuel tanks, dashboards, instrument panels and wheel arches. Reportedly, in 2017 more than 37.1 million passenger cars were produced by just three countries combined, namely China, India and Japan. With surging population, pollution concerns and the economic uplift across most of the APAC countries, the rising investments made to expand manufacturing capacities by automakers will propel the rotomoulding powder market.

All in all, the low cost, eco-friendly production of rotomoulded containers or parts with minimum material wastage and least design constraints have prompted the material handling and automobile manufacturing segments to adopt these products. The industry growth is further aided by the efforts of rotomoulding powder market players such as BASF, Reliance Industries, ExxonMobil, Dow Chemical Company, GreenAge Industries, Pacific Poly Plast and Eco-polymers.
