2016-2020 Fire Extinguisher Market Outlook Compared to 2021-2031 Forecast

The fire extinguisher market was estimated to clock at 3.5% CAGR between 2016 and 2020. Fire extinguishers are pressure vessels that contain a specialized extinguishing agent that aids in the control or dousing of a fire. Portable fire extinguishers are simple to use, lightweight, and portable.

The demand for fire extinguishers is growing due to an increase in the number of fire fatalities in homes and businesses. Fire extinguishers are key units for fighting fire, especially in closed spaces. These products are designed to be simple to minimize fire risks in times of emergencies.

Alternatives such as hydrant systems and automated fire sprinkler systems, require firefighting professionals or specialized infrastructure, which have limited reach in confined spaces. Even sprinkler systems are not very feasible owing to high costs.

The global fire extinguisher market is expected to expand significantly during the assessment period. Increasing construction activities for the creation of commercial spaces, new industrial plants, and the launch of new housing projects, coupled with the introduction of strict fire safety regulations, are contributing to the global fire extinguishing market.

Furthermore, advancements in sound and gas based firefighting technology, will also influence the growth of the market in the near future. The global fire extinguisher market is estimated to be valued around US$ 3.6 Bn in 2021, exhibiting 1.1 X increase over the previous year. Future Market Insights expects the global Industrial Fire Extinguisher market to expand at over 5.5% CAGR through 2031.

What is the Commercial Potential of Fire Extinguishers?

The demand for fire extinguishers is projected to surge with a projected CAGR of 5.4% by sales in volume (units). Increasing implementation of strict regulation by governments, particularly in developed economies like the U.S., certain countries in Europe, Japan, and Australia primarily in industrial and commercial spaces generate interest, owing to high-convenience products.

Future Market Insights estimates that more than six out of ten fire extinguishers are sold in the commercial and industrial sectors. Leading companies are incorporating tech-driven manufacturing strategies to expand into the most challenging industrial areas, such as mining, oil and gas, and waste management, where the risk of fire loss is significantly greater.

Product design strategies are impacted by the need for fire extinguishers to survive extreme environments and extreme corrosion conditions in these end-user segments, which will support investments into R&D efforts.
