Global Self-contained Breathing Apparatus Market 2017-2021

About Self-contained Breathing Apparatus

An SCBA or a CABA is a device used by firefighters, rescue workers, and other industry workers to provide breathable air in an IDLH environment. The term self-contained is used because the breathing set is independent of any remote supply like a long hose. If the breathing apparatus is designed to be used underwater, then it is called as an SCUBA.

The SCBA has been used in fields such as rescue operation, providing escape guidance at fire stations, steel workstations, chemical plants, nuclear facilities, hotels, and vessels.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global self-contained breathing apparatus market to grow at a CAGR of 4.28% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Self-contained Breathing Apparatus Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global self-contained breathing apparatus market: Avon Protection Systems, Honeywell, MSA, and Scott Safety

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Cam Lock, Drägerwerk, INTERSPIRO, and Intech Safety.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Increased provision of SCBA training. SCBAs have become an essential piece of firefighter's personal protective equipment. SCBAs have proved their usefulness even after the widening of the fire service scope. Apart from their use in structural firefighting, it plays a major role in confined spaces, technical rescue operations, and hazardous material incidents.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increasing incidence of fire accidents. There has been an increase in incidence of fire accidents in several regions such as the Americas, Europe, and Southeast Asia. This will in turn increase the use of SCBA by firefighters and rescue workers. The number of fire accidents are witnessing increase in Asian countries such as India, Singapore, and China, which in turn is propelling the governments to investment in firefighting departments and focus on providing better firefighting equipment. More than 19,000 accidental fire deaths were recorded in India in the year 2014. Similarly, developed countries such as US also recorded more than 3,000 fire deaths in the year 2014. Also, in the last decade, there has been a surge in the number of injuries and deaths of firefighters in the UK.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Use of fire resistant building materials and adoption of fire protection systems. It is observed that the major fatal fires occur in residential areas. The use of fire resistant materials in residential areas will help prevent such tragedies as these materials take a longer time for the fire to spread. Traditional construction materials such as heavy timber are replaced by metals such as steel and aluminum that are fire resistant.
