Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Residential Smoke Detectors Market in the US 2016-2020Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Residential Smoke Detectors Market in the US: BRK, Honeywell Security Group, Kidde and Siemens.Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Apollo Fire Detectors Ltd, Gentek, Hochiki America, Mircom, System Sensors, USI Electric/Universal and Xtralis.Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The smoke detectors are being increasingly integrated with residential building systems. The integration of smoke detectors with building systems yield various operational and economic benefits. Some of the benefits are reduced cost of the overall systems, decreased energy usage, and enhanced communication during emergency situations.”According to the report, the US construction market is experiencing significant growth in its residential construction segment. The rise in residential construction projects is one of the key factors driving the demand of residential smoke detectors in the country. The growth in the US construction market is projected to pick up during the forecast period.Further, the report states that the disposal of smoke detectors is governed by various regulations and requirements. Smoke detectors that contain radioactive material should have a warning label on its body. The activity of the radioactive material present in the smoke detector and the type of radiation that it emits determine the health hazards posed by the device. Thus, the ambiguity in the methodology of disposal of smoke detectors is one of the major challenges faced by vendors in the market.
