Retro Reflective Textiles Market Forecast to 2028 - COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis By End Users (Construction, Oil & Gas, Mining, Transportation, Firefighters, Law Enforcement Agencies, and Others) and Material (Tetoron Cotton, Polyester, Aramid, and Others)
The retro reflective textiles market is expected to grow from US$ 2,872.8 million in 2021 to US$ 4,139.8 million by 2028; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2021 to 2028.
The demand for retro reflective textiles is driven by the growth of various end use industries, such as construction, mining, and transportation. Retro reflective textiles are increasingly used in designing safety apparel for workers, cyclists, bikers, and pedestrians. Retro reflective fabrics work on the retro reflectivity principle, which improves the perception of the eyes to see the objects in low-light conditions when illuminated by a light source. Retroreflection happens when light rays are reflected in the same direction from where they originated. Retro reflective fabrics have strong demand across various end-use industries. In the marine industry, retro reflective textiles are used to design life jackets and personal flotation devices (PFDs). They can also be utilized in lifeboats and inflatable life rafts that are carried for emergency evacuation during a disaster.
Based on material, the retro reflective textiles market is segmented into tetoron cotton, polyester, aramid, and others. The polyester segment accounted for the largest share, whereas the tetoron cotton segment is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. Polyester reflective material is used in items that require high visibility. A fluorescent orange color-coating is applied to the fabric, followed by reflective glass beads. This reflective polyester fabric is also UV resistant. Construction, mining, and oil & gas industry workers; firefighters; and police use the safety vests and gears made from polyester material. This polyester fabric is made for high visibility clothing, and it is used in different applications, such as transportation.
By geography, the retro reflective textiles market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), Middle East & Africa (MEA), and South & Central America (SAM). In 2020, Asia-Pacific held the largest share of the market and is estimated to register the highest CAGR in the market during the forecast period. The demand for retro reflective textiles is also expected to increase as government organizations impose strict safety standards for safety apparel. High growth is expected in Asia Pacific during the forecasted period. In Asia Pacific, emerging economies, such as India and China, represent significant growth opportunities for the retro reflective textile industry. Road safety authorities are undertaking initiatives to minimize fatal road accidents due to the increasing cases of motor vehicle collisions (MVC). This represents one of the key factors fueling the demand for reflective materials to produce road safety devices and textiles.
