Aramid blends and polybenzimidazole are two of the most prominent components in the global industrial protective clothing market. Extensive utilization of both polybenzimidazole and aramid blends are likely to propel the growth of the global industrial protective clothing market during the forecast period. 

Aramid fibers refer to a type of strong and heat resistant fibers that are used in a wide range of end-use industries. Aramid fibers are utilized in military and aerospace applications, in bicycle tires, marine hull reinforcement, as an alternative for asbestos, for ballistic-rated body armor fabric, marine cordage, and ballistic composites. These applications boost the industrial protective clothing market. 

Benefits of aramid blends comprise the following: 

  • Comfort in action - the aramid blends provides more ease of movement and comfort than other types of fibers. It is advantageous for those work areas that need swift action such as forest rangers, firefighters. They need to jump into quick action as and when emergencies arise. 
  • Superior flame resistant- as a flame resistant fabric, aramid blends come with very high performance properties. It meets all the strict standards of quality as laid down by the authorities for safety and protection against heat. 
  • Versatile - aramid blends come with different weights, starting from 115 to 310 g/m2. It makes spreads over different states of protection. It is also suitable for use in industrial laundry and provides outstanding dimensional stability. 

On the other hand, polybenzimidazole is widely utilized in the fabrication of top-notch protective clothing owing to its high stability. It is used as high temperature protective gloves, firefighter's gear, aircraft wall fabrics, spacesuits of astronauts. Such extensive use of polybenzimidazole supports the growth opportunities of the global industrial protective clothing market during the assessment period.
