Emergency blankets, also known as Mylar blankets, space blankets, heat blankets, and first aid blankets comprise thin, heat-reflective plastic sheets, which are light and compact. A metallic reflecting agent, which is in the hue of gold or silver and reflects nearly 97 percent of the heat radiated, is placed on the thin layer of plastic.
Hypothermia is common in trauma victims and is associated with increased mortality. As emergency blankets are used to prevent and counter hypothermia, an increasing number of traumatic accidents is expected to impel the market over the forecast period. For instance, according to a study published by NCBI in 2020, around 66% of people admitted to the emergency department due to major trauma were reported to suffer from accidental hypothermia. Thereby, boosting the use of emergency blankets, and propelling the market growth.
Moreover, the rising number of natural and man-made calamities, such as earthquakes, and floods, are anticipated to help the market grow. Similarly, a surge in the number of camping events is further expected to rise the use of emergency blankets. For instance, according to the Guardian, approximately one in every five British adults have been camping ever since the pandemic began. Moreover, as per the similar source, 4.5 million people were estimated to be sleeping in a tent during camping. As the emergency blankets are used to hang on the tent ceiling to create a heat vortex inside the tent, the demand for emergency blankets is estimated to surge, therefore, helping the market propel over the forecast duration.
Furthermore, rising number of burn incidence is expected to increase the use of fiberglass emergency blankets. For instance, as per data by WHO, an estimated of 180,000 deaths occur due to burns. Fiberglass emergency blankets douse grease as well as liquid fire by suffocating it, and hence are ideal for survival during fire. Therefore, as a result of aforementioned factors, the market is projected to witness a significant growth rate during the forecast period.
