Fire Alarm Systems Market

2019 Analysis and Review of Fire Alarm Systems Market by Application - Commercial, Industrial, and Residential for 2019 - 2029

Sustainable Application Scope in Commercial Sector

The commercial and industrial sectors will remain the key application zones in the global fire alarm systems market. Adoption in the commercial sector currently accounts for around half of overall market value, and the trend is likely to increase at a healthy pace. In 2019, fire alarm systems worth US$ 8.5 Bn were set up in commercial facilities. While increasing scope of application has been observed from the industrial sector, owing to stringent regulations regarding personnel safety, demand from the residential sector would remain steady through 2029.

North America in Vanguard, APEJ to Close in

At present, the fire alarm systems markets in North America and Western Europe are leading the way, with the former representing the most lucrative prospects through 2029. While these developed regional markets are accounting for nearly 50% market share, the market in Asia Pacific (excluding Japan) is spearheading in terms of growth rate. In addition to this, the APEJ fire alarm systems market will outpace that in Western Europe by the end of the foreseeable timeframe.

Scaling up Safety with IoT-based Fire Alarm Systems

In an effort to promote the efficiency of fire alarm systems in various sectors, market players must integrate their offerings with advanced technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT). IoT-enabled fire alarm systems are equipped with a wide array of sensors for detecting fire casualties and alerting officials for immediate response.

For instance, passive infrared (PIR) sensors aid in determining the exact location of the mishap. Gas sensors detect the presence of any flammable gas, including CO2. Smart fire alarm systems, despite incorporating highly complex algorithms, offer a high degree of precision, and as such, add another layer of security.

How Growth will Unfold

Both, conventional and addressable fire alarm systems continue to stay at the top against other solutions such as professional services and managed services. Among them, addressable fire alarm systems are likely to see substantial adoption, owing to better efficiency in terms of time and cost over conventional versions.

As both system types hold around 4/5 of total market revenue, players in the fire alarm systems market are highly focused on these solutions. This study further reveals that, addressable fire alarm systems will register revenue nearly thrice that of their conventional counterparts by the end of 2029.

Rising Incidence of Fire Outbreaks

An increasing number of deaths and property loss have raised awareness about fire alarm systems which remain key growth drivers of the market. Rising adoption of fire safety strategies in several countries where investments in infrastructural development have been relatively low will work in favor of the market players. Overheating of electronic equipment, alternating voltage, electric spark, and poor handling of burning lamps and cooking gas leakage are the major reasons identified for the causes of fire outbreaks, which subsequently influence the demand for fire alarm systems.

Implementation of Stringent Rules and Regulations 

Growing enforcement of stringent government regulations is significantly accelerating growth of the fire alarm systems market. In developed and developing countries, implementation of these regulations has pushed the requirement for fire alarm systems. For instance, the UK government ensures all the fire detection and alarm systems should be installed under British Standards.

Elevated Maintenance and Installation Cost

High costs associated with maintenance and installation of fire alarm system continue to represent a potential threat for manufacturers. The cost of a fire alarm system varies depending on size, type, usage, and lifespan. These systems are expensive to install in older buildings as compared to new buildings.
