Key Factors Shaping the Fire Extinguishers Market

  • Advanced Technologies Emerging as Product Differentiators among Manufacturers

    Due to rising integration of automation in the industrial sector, the demand for cost-effective and advanced products is increasing, which is creating pressure on manufacturers to offer technologically-advanced and unique product offerings. Significant investments in research and development to develop unique technologies by manufacturers of equipment can be seen, which will help them differentiate their products in the fire extinguishers market.

  • Preference for Lightweight and Compact Fire Extinguishers

    By virtue of their high efficiency, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, and foam-based fire extinguishers are getting employed in industries as well as residential sectors for extinguishing purposes, gradually. However, these technologies are now getting inefficient to adhere the current regulations imposed by several countries and environmental organizations. Also, these technologies are feasible under certain conditions, which vary among industries and processes.

    This, in turn, has raised the need for developing systems, which are effective over a wide spectrum. Moreover, formerly used halon gas fire extinguishers cause ozone depletion. Thus, water mist and clean agent systems are being implemented on account of being an alternative of ozone depleting halon gas fire extinguishers.

    For portable operation in emergency conditions, lightweight and compact fire extinguishers are being preferred in the residential and commercial sectors. Complying with demands, several market players are developing systems, which use integrated technology aligned with flame detector working on dual or triple stages. This is estimated to project significant opportunities for growth in the global fire extinguishers market.

  • Safety Concerns and Stringent Government Regulations

    Owing to an increased incidents of fire breaking in the industrial sector, several countries are emphasizing on crafting regimes for fire safety and management. National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) of U.S. has laid down various regulations related to the mandatory installation of fire extinguishers.

    One such regulation is NFPA10 for the mandatory usage of portable fire extinguishers in kitchens.
