Global Fire Fighting Foam Market Outlook 2017-2022

Global Fire Fighting Foam Market Outlook 2017-2022

Firefighting foam is a foam used for fire suppression. Its role is to cool the fire and to coat the fuel, preventing its contact with oxygen, resulting in suppression of the combustion. Fire-fighting foam was invented by the Russian engineer and chemist Aleksandr Loran in 1902. The surfactants used must produce foam in concentration of less than 1%. Other components of fire-retardant foams are organic solvents (e.g., trimethyl-trimethylene glycol and hexylene glycol), foam stabilizers (e.g., lauryl alcohol), and corrosion inhibitors.

For years, foam has been used as a fire-extinguishing medium for flammable and combustible liquids. Unlike other extinguishing agents - water, dry chemical, CO2, etc., a stable aqueous foam can extinguish a flammable or combustible liquid fire by the combined mechanisms of cooling, separating the flame/ignition source from the product surface, suppressing vapors and smothering. It can also secure for extended periods of time against reflash or reignition.

According to Gen Consulting Company, the fire fighting foam market will increase at a CAGR of 3.45 percent during the period of 2017 to 2022, to attain an anticipated value of USD 1,165.01 million by the end of the forecast period. About 43.49 percent of global fire fighting foam sales in 2022 will be in Europe, according to current growth patterns. The rise of emerging players, especially in Asia-Pacific, will lead to a deconsolidation of the fire fighting foam industry.
