Mergers and acquisitions expand company market shares

· Johnson Controls became a player in the Automatic Fire Sprinkler System Manufacturing industry in 2016 when it merged with Tyco International PLC (Tyco). Tyco was a global fire protection and security company. As of September 6, 2016, Tyco completely merged with Johnson Controls under the banner of Johnson Controls International PLC.

Industry operators compete on quality and service

· Competition within the industry is primarily based on customer service, product attributes, quality and to a lesser extent, price. Since the layout, size and aesthetics of commercial, public and residential buildings vary, industry manufactures must offer a breadth of products that can be customized to a certain extent to meet customer needs. In addition, they must price these systems competitively and be able to offer ongoing support and training for customers once a sprinkler system has been purchased and installed.

This industry manufactures fire-protection systems that use automatic sprinklers. These systems typically consist of a network of pipes connected to a building’s water supply. Industry products include devices that detect fire and automatically release water to combat the flames. The industry does not include revenue generated from the actual installation and maintenance of sprinkler systems in buildings.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
