These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.
Reflective materials are membrane structures comprising an adhesive, protective film, functional layer, and optical-grade glass that allows light to bounce back. These materials can change their solar reflectance depending on the outdoor temperature and irradiation. They are weaved into a fabric to make safety jackets, mixed in paints for being utilized on the highway, or employed for making safety devices like markers, reflectors, and road signs. Compared to conventional reflective materials that reflect solar energy in buildings during summertime, smart retroreflective materials are gaining traction in places with extended warm and cold seasons.
Reflective Material Market Trends:
Due to the increasing cases of motor vehicle collisions (MVC), road safety authorities worldwide are undertaking initiatives to minimize fatal road accidents. This represents one of the key factors escalating the demand for reflective materials to produce road safety devices and textiles. They also find applications in the aerospace industry to improve pilot visibility and prevent mid-air collisions. Apart from this, several manufacturers are introducing soft, comfortable fabrics that enhance visibility and safety in low light conditions like snow, fog, and night. This, coupled with the rising use of these materials in the fabrication of high-end jackets, running gear, biking equipment, and professional safety uniforms, is strengthening the market growth. Moreover, they are utilized in solar photovoltaic (PV) systems for power generation, water pumping and maintenance, and health systems. Furthermore, the market is anticipated to grow due to the escalating demand for camouflage patterns made using infrared (IR) reflective textiles to avoid warfighters’ detection by enemy IR sensors.
