Modern flooring has already become the latest trend among infrastructure players, with stylish homes and workplace décor representing an image of high living standards. For high quality flooring, protection from moisture is vital because floors inside the buildings are usually covered with tiles and carpet, where penetration of water vapor through concrete slabs could lead to the failure of adhesive in tiling, staining of flooring products and fungal growth. Due to its durability, chemical resistance and load rating properties, PE is widely being accepted among rotomoulding powder manufacturers to meet different flooring needs.

Plastic industry is one of the fastest growing segments in India and PE is the most largely used plastic material by Indian companies, which accounts 43% of total consumption and indicates considerable potential for APAC rotomoulding powder market in the future. PE floorings are also being offered for outdoor tile applications to improve the aesthetic appeal of commercial and residential surroundings. APAC rotomoulding powder market is poised to register remarkable proceeds from augmented construction of housing complexes and industrial or IT parks in developing nations.

Waterproofing of the concrete structures has always been a challenging task and for simplifying the job, they are focusing more on quality of concrete and subsequent proofing solutions that play a vital role in the durability of a structure. Waterproofing a structure may account for only 2% to 3% of the overall building expenditure, but defects arising out of waterproofing failures could lead to nearly 80% of a structure’s  defects. Growing need for PE waterproof membranes across emerging economies will reinforce APAC rotomoulding powder industry, with players coming up with a variety of options that not only improve aesthetics but are also environment-friendly in nature.

A large number of chemical companies have extensive operations throughout Asia-Pacific, endorsing the necessity of chemical-resistant plastic frames for industrial structures. Increasing demand for these materials will undoubtedly expand APAC rotomoulding powder market share in developing countries.

Plastic is considered as one of the best suited materials for window and door frames since it is extremely impact resistant as well as impervious to water and corrosion. It is largely deployed in the food industry for professional kitchens and other humid environments. APAC is home to several countries which experience harsh weather conditions and heavy rains are witnessed across the region, which escalate the demand for corrosion resistant door and window frames. Need for suitable plastic materials like uPVC for these products will fuel APAC rotomoulding powder market growth.

APAC rotomoulding powder industry has recently witnessed a rapid adoption in low and medium-income nations in the continent, generating considerable revenues from a host of vital applications. In fact, reports estimate that Asia Pacific rotomoulding powder market will exceed annual valuation of USD 7 billion by 2024.

Germany Industrial Protective Fabrics Market Size, By application, 2018 & 2025, (Million Square Meter)

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.
