The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic impacted the fire safety market adversely in the early quarters of 2020. This has resulted in a reduction in the installation of new fire safety equipment in industrial and commercial applications. However, increased spending on new construction activities and replacement of obsolete fire alarms and sprinklers and detectors are expected to witness the overall growth of the fire safety equipment market in the forthcoming years.

Reconstruction activities along with the implementation of safety codes against fire protection will positively impact market growth. Advancements in technology, including wireless alarm systems, smoke detectors, and water mist technology, will further boost the growth. The rise in awareness regarding fire safety equipment and the dangerous outcomes is expected to propel market growth. However, high replacement costs of traditional fire equipment would hamper the market growth.

The European Norm, National Fire Protection Act, among many other local regulations as well as listings, building codes, and approvals by nationally recognized testing laboratories have mandated the construction authorities to equip the infrastructures with adequate fire suppression and detection systems. Moreover, insurance companies provide incentives to infrastructure owners for installing such equipment, which is expected to drive the fire safety equipment market further.

Application Insights

The industrial application segment dominated the market with a revenue share of over 40% in 2021. This segment includes oil and gas, transportation sectors, energy and power, and manufacturing. These sectors emphasize the installation of fire safety equipment due to the high risk involved. The oil and gas sectors are highly prone to fire accidents due to flammable materials' involvement. Government regulations to safeguard workers from fire accident is propelling the demand for fire safety equipment.

Based on application, the market is segmented into industrial, residential, and commercial. The residential segment is expected to register the highest CAGR over the forecast period. In the past couple of years, the demand for fire safety equipment has increased significantly across this sector owing to the rising awareness about fire safety equipment and their benefits. The growing infrastructure development in developed and developing countries is also anticipated to fuel the growth.
