About Fire Hose
The global fire hose market will be driven by the advances in product technology that enhance the ease of use. For example, layflat fire hoses, appropriate for many applications, help transfer the liquids over a long distance easily as they are lightweight. In contrast, rigid hoses are heavier and require more space and manpower, making them difficult to handle.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global fire hose market to grow at a CAGR of 6.03% during the period 2016-2020.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Fire Hose Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global fire hose market: Angus Fire, Delta Fire, Terraflex, and Ziegler.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: All-American Hose, Armored Textiles, Armtec, Chhatariya Firetech, Dixon Valve & Coupling, Drägerwerk, Guardian Fire Equipment, Jakob Eschbach, Laser-Tech Fire Protection, Mercedes Textiles, National Fire Equipment, Newage Fire Protection, North America Fire Hose, Richards Hose, and Superior Fire Hose.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The use of the continuous vulcanization process to produce a single-piece long hose was first highlighted through the FOIRCEV project. Post this, an increasing number of vendors in the market, both in the EU and other regions, are focusing on deploying the continuous vulcanization process for production. Through this process, a complete hose is produced via the extrusion process and is then vulcanized.”
According to the report, Product innovation is crucial as it ensures organizational competence and competitiveness in the market. Fire hoses are an important tool in fire safety, and reliability and durability are expected qualities in any product. In the case of forest fires or large-scale industrial accidents, firefighters often must extend the hose to a long distance over rough terrain. However, linking several hoses to increase the overall length adds weight, lowers the water pressure, and reduces portability.
Further, the report states that Proper maintenance of fire hose and other related accessories is necessary for their safe use, as they have a limited life due to rough working conditions. Fire hose should be stored in a dry place as it can be affected by sunlight, humidity, solvents, insects, and radioactive materials. It should be visually inspected at periodic intervals to check for deterioration or loss of performance, which can lead to malfunction. Inadequate maintenance may result in leakage, bursting, or other malfunctions, which can cause serious bodily injury or property damage.
