INTRODUCTION

SCOPE OF REPORT

The markets for thermally protective clothing and ancillary products are fragmented.  There are significant and specific segments of these markets.  To get these products to the stage of being classed as thermally protective involves fiber and polymer makers, those that might weave the cloth of various types, and those manufacturers that design and manufacture the clothing that is usually made to comply with some government specifications. Within each segment there is a variety of players from the government organizations that create, develop, and enforce the regulations and standards, the raw material suppliers, the fiber and fabric manufacturers, the mills and fabric producers and weavers and the finished goods’ manufacturers and suppliers and distributors.  Simply put, the supply chain is highly complex.

In this report, BCC Research identifies the top 10 companies in the thermally protective clothing market, and explains the rationale behind these selections. Factors taken into account include technical innovation, market leadership, and commitment to this market via investment in products.

When selecting these top 10 companies, BCC Research looked across the industry spectrum and selected the most active and significant contributors while recognizing that there are many other contenders.  Some of these “significant others” are included but to a less detailed extent than the top 10 companies.

Heat- and flame-resistant clothing, including firefighters’ turnout gear for structural, proximity, and wildlands’ fire service, as well as industrial fire resistant garments for use in electric and gas utilities or in industrial applications where electric arc and flash fire are hazards. Ancillary components for fire fighting including respirators and some components such as respirators are included for information, though not as specific components of the top 10 companies in thermally protective gear.  Important definitions, regulations, materials, technologies, market size, and anticipated growth are discussed.

METHODOLOGY AND INFORMATION SOURCES

A structured research approach was used, based on optimal use of BCC Research’s own databases and proprietary information, as well as primary and secondary research techniques and methodologies. The material researched and presented in this technical market report is based on information gathered from personal contacts within government agencies, individuals involved in materials and manufacturing, industry consultants, and to some degree, on the author’s personal experience in speaking with industry sources knowledgeable in the subject material.

Additional data was obtained from reviews of secondary sources, such as trade publications, trade-associated company literature, government documents, and recent patents.  This was done in an effort to supplement the application, market, and trend data gathered from primary sources.  All monetary projections presented in this report are reported in constant U.S. dollars. A targeted and selective analysis of recent patents is encompassed in the document.
