Global Fire Protection Systems in Oil and Gas Markets 2016-2020
Technavio's research analyst predicts the global FPS market in the oil and gas industry to grow steadily at a CAGR of close to 4% during the forecast period. One of the primary drivers for the growth of this market is the stringent regulatory framework set up by the government. These regulatory frameworks and standards state that every direct oil and gas operators should allocate a certain share of their overall investments in fire safety. As per these standards, the establishment of a health and safety department in every oil and gas facility is mandatory to analyze and prevent fires during onshore and offshore activities.
The use of eco-friendly fire-suppression systems is another significant trend driving the growth of the FPS market. Rising environmental awareness such as the need to reduce ozone depletion and global warming has driven oil and gas operators to adopt environmentally friendly FPS such as gaseous and water mist systems. Many oil and operators and FPS vendors are developing fire suppression materials that are sustainable and effective.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Fire Protection Systems Market in the Oil and Gas Industry 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Fire Protection Systems Market in the Oil and Gas Industry: 3M, KEVTA, Kidde Fire Systems, Orcus Fire & Risk and Tyco International
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Rising environmental awareness regarding the need to reduce ozone depletion and global warming has encouraged oil and gas operators to adopt environmentally friendly FPS such as gaseous and water mist systems. Water mist suppression systems are preferred for fire protection, as they use less water than sprinkler systems.”
According to the report, the Government of India established the OISD in 1986. This organization conducts external safety audits to identify and prevent hazards and monitor the workplace environment of oil and gas facilities. The OISD examines safety management systems and management policies; plant layouts; operations, inspections, and maintenance procedures; fire accident records and protection facilities; and safety training facilities. It also conducts pre-commissioning safety audits and surprise safety audits.
Further, the report states that a persistent decline in the oil prices during the forecast period will likely reduce investments in drilling and exploration, affecting demand for FPS.
