According to a recent Fact.MR analysis, the global flame resistant and retardant fabric market will grow at a remarkable 6.9% volume CAGR during the forecast period (2017-2026). Approximately $7,300 million in flame resistant and retardant fabric is expected to be sold globally by the end of 2026.
The global flame resistant and retardant fabric market has seen a significant increase in the development of new products. In 2017, researchers from Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University created a water-based solution for flame-retardant coating for cotton fabrics utilising a phospho-nitrogen combination. This one-step spray-on method coats fabrics by taking advantage of the spontaneous interactions between tetrakis (hydroxymethyl) phosphonium chloride (THPC) and para-phenylenediamine (PDA).

This causes the poly [1,4-diaminophenylene-tris (dimethyl hydroxymethyl) phosphine] (PApP) to precipitate on the surface of the cotton fabric. Evaluations of the effectiveness of PApP in line with BS EN ISO 15025 and ASTM D6413 flammability tests revealed that the overall performance and flame-retardant efficiency of this innovative coating are promising.
