Fire Detection and Suppression Equipment Market: Segmentation
This market research report includes detailed market segmentation by fire suppression, fire detection, end-user, and geography.
Fire detectors dominate the global market, and the segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.14% during the forecast period. The growing number of commercial facilities, coupled with the growth in the industrial and manufacturing sector, is one of the major driving factors for the high demand for this segment worldwide.
Alarms, which are the most critical devices, are likely to post an absolute growth of 50% by 2024. Europe was the largest market, with a market share of 31% in 2018. Stringent government initiatives and the growth in building automation in the region are major factors contributing to the installation of alarm systems in buildings. Governments across Europe follow strict safety regulations.
The portable extinguisher segment accounted for the largest share in 2018. Portable fire extinguishers are preferred as they are handy and can be used in all types of fire prominent zones, including residential, commercial, and industrial sectors.
The fire sprinkler system market has grown up in recent times due to the tremendous growth in home automation and heightened concerns toward safety and awareness. This, in turn, is driving the market growth for subsystems - sprinkler heads, which is a major determining component of the sprinkler system.
Fire detectors, alarms, and control panels are major devices used in the industrial segment. As threats are high in marine and oil and gas industries, fire code compliance is strict. Furthermore, the growth of the oil and petroleum industry is expected to affect the market positively. The increase in oil and gas demand requires safety and security in infrastructural facilities. This, in turn, requires additional workspace and improved safety standards, which can provide growth opportunities for the fire detection and suppression equipment market. Manufacturing industries, such as automobiles and coal require efficient evacuation methods. Hence the implementation of video and voice evacuation techniques is highly endorsed. As the global fleet growth is expected to grow during the forecast period, it is likely to increase growth opportunities in the fire detection and suppression equipment market in new fleets and construction sites. Further, the increase in global industrial production is expected to trigger safety requirements in the production process, thereby increasing the share of safety equipment in the market.
