About Fire and Gas Detection System
F&G detection systems comprise detection equipment such as fire and smoke detectors, logic controls and alarms, and mitigation functions that include fire dampers and suppression systems. The centralized unit logic solver acts as a brain on the F&G detection system that monitors and controls the abnormalities in plants related to fire. It receives status and alerts or analog signals from field monitoring devices, which are required to detect fire and gas leakage in a plant. The operator takes appropriate action, and mitigates the hazard situations.
F&G safety systems monitor unusual activities such as fire or release of any combustible or toxic gases released from the plant. These systems provide early warning and mitigation actions that can avoid accidents. Industries can execute integrated fire and gas strategies based on the latest automation technology for plant safety and infrastructure protection.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global F&G detection system market to grow at a CAGR of 5.46% during the period 2016-2020.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global F&G detection system market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of F&G detection systems that include their installation and integration in the oil and gas, chemical and petrochemical, and pharmaceutical industries.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Fire and Gas Detection System Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Fire and Gas Detection System Market: ABB, Honeywell International, Rockwell Automation, Schneider Electric and Yokogawa
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Autronica, Emerson Process Management, Esoterica Automation, GIL Automation, Hochiki, Johnson Controls, Mokveld, MSA Safety, Norgren, OMRON, RTP, Siemens, and Tyco International.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The rise of wireless instrumentation in safety systems is also expected to aid market growth during the forecast period. Wireless instrumentation eases the communication between the control station and field devices placed in a hostile environment such as subsea in the oil and gas industry. It has also reduced the cost of cabling and other overhead expenses.”
According to the report, vendors are offering IR sensors with high level of customization that is comparatively cheaper than those of global suppliers. This has led global suppliers to reduce the cost of their products. Reduction in costs and miniaturization has increased the adoption of IR sensors in F&G detection systems, which are sensitive to radiations. These sensors monitor gas meters and detect inflammable gases both indoors and outdoors of the plants, enabling firefighters to carry out fire rescue operations promptly.
Further, the report states that the periodic maintenance of F&G detection system is vital to maintaining safety in the plant. Non-compliance with routine maintenance may risk the health and lives of employees.
