Fire Sprinkler Market by Type (Product (Wet, Dry, Pre-action, Deluge), Service (Installation, Inspection & Managed)), Component (Fire Sprinkler Head, Alarm Bell), Application (Commercial, Industrial, Residential), and Geography - Forecast to 2020
Fire sprinkler systems play a vital role in reducing the risk of fire in commercial, industrial, and residential buildings. These systems are being increasingly installed in several sectors as they systems are capable of detecting, restricting, and extinguishing fires in the early stages.
There are different types of fire sprinkler systems which are used as per the different applications of various sectors such as residential, industrial, and commercial. They help to save the systems from smoke, flame, and other damage. The types of fire sprinklers include wet sprinkler systems, dry sprinkler systems, pre-action sprinkler systems, and deluge sprinklers. Wet sprinklers systems are the most commonly used systems and are very reliable due to their simplicity of design and operation. Dry pipe sprinkler systems are designed for buildings/structures in which the pipes may be exposed to temperatures below 40° F and are thus prone to freezing. In this system, the pipes are filled with pressurized air or nitrogen instead of water. These systems are typically installed in unheated warehouses and attics, parking garages, outside exposed loading docks, and within commercial freezers. Various services related to fire sprinklers include engineering services, installation and design, maintenance services, inspection & managed services, and other services.
Despite the numerous advantages offered by fire sprinklers, the high cost of retrofitting fire sprinklers in existing buildings and the lack of integrity in system interfaces are some of the major factors restraining the growth of the fire sprinkler market. The increasing expenditure on fire protection by various enterprises to prevent the loss of life and property due to fires and their efforts to adhere to governmental norms regarding installing fire sprinklers in the commercial, industrial, and residential sectors are the major factors driving the growth of the fire sprinkler market. Moreover, the increasing trend of automation in commercial buildings and homes in developing nations has further contributed to the growth potential of this market.
