The Fire Equipment & Safety Centre of Japan (FESC) was established in 1975 by the Minister of Home Affairs in Japan. It has been playing a prominent role in promoting diverse projects related to fire and disaster prevention and responding to various changes. It provides training to qualified engineers to prevent fire and disaster prevention, fire safety assessment, research and study on fire detection and prevention. It also provides certification for fire equipment and systems and publishes books on fire prevention. Any property owner intending to get the certification can get a performance evaluation by the Japan Fire Equipment Inspection Institute or the FESC. It also conducts preliminary evaluation of equipment and systems to shorten the term of formal evaluation. FESC publishes a monthly journal that states the latest advancements in fire equipment systems and prevention. It also sells practical manuals and reference books for fire and disaster prevention through its online portal, which helps its circulation easily. JFRA (Japan Fire Retardant Association) is another governing body that was established on November 21st, 1962, by related organisations and firms to prevent fires by promoting flame retardancy of products such as interior decoration goods, building construction sheets, and the like, since many fires broke out at that time in theatres and construction sites.

According to the report titled "Japan Fire Safety Equipment Market Research Report, 2027", published by Actual Market Research, the fire safety equipment market for Japan is expected to rise at a CAGR of 4.85% over the forecast period. Industrial places are increasingly installing fire detection systems to prevent fire outbreaks and loss of resources, followed by commercial and residential places. Fire suppression has a considerable share in product type, with over 35% of the market share. Fire alarms are rarely installed in commercial, residential, or industrial buildings. Nohmi Bosai Ltd. is a pioneer in the fire protection industry in Japan with over 100 years of experience, dedicated to R & D, Manufacturing, Designing, Consultation, Installation, and Maintenance. It has fire alarm systems, nitrogen gas fire suppression systems, and foam extinguishing systems. It fosters ideal forms of fire protection systems to match changing social structures.

Arson was the cause of half of Japan’s 10 major fires with 10 or more fatalities in the twenty-first century so far. In 2020, approximately 9.89 thousand house fires occurred in Japan. In 2020, 645 people aged 65 or above died due to accidental house fires in Japan, a slight decrease from 662 cases in the previous year. The elderly are more vulnerable to the dangers of house fires than the general population due to their disproportionate share of fatalities. They accounted for nearly 72 percent of all fatalities in accidental house fires in 2020.

A relatively high rate of urbanisation in the region's developing economies will aid market growth in the coming years. The strong presence of the local manufacturers in the Asia-Pacific region is a major contributor to the market growth of the fire safety equipment market in Japan. Asian countries have now become hubs for IT outsourcing, and there has also been dynamic growth in the retail sector. With this, there has been an increase in demand for fire prevention services. With the increasing foreign investment in the developing countries of the region, the demand for fire safety equipment is increasing. With the emphasis on smart city development and the establishment of more industries, the use of fire safety equipment is expected to increase to ensure safety against fire hazards.

In terms of application, the industrial application leads the fire safety equipment market and the fire suppression segment, which otherwise are led by the commercial application segment. The residential end-user segment is growing considerably in the entire region given the change in perception of fire safety equipment. With this, the manufacturers are also focusing their designs in accordance with the convenience of use for a layman. The residential application segment of the fire safety equipment market in Japan is likely to be growing with the highest anticipated CAGR of 5.43% through the forecasted period. The manufacturers have now introduced portable equipment for greater ease of use. A major part of the region is still unexplored because the market is primarily dominated by unorganised players because of its strong regional influence. The Fire Services Law and Building Standards Law in Japan have been supportive of the demand for fire safety equipment in the country. This is further expected to drive the market's growth in coming years.

The recent COVID-19 outbreak has been affecting every business globally since December 2019. There was a drop in deaths due to fire during the pandemic as people were confined to their homes for most of the time. As the entire family was present at home, there was reduced recklessness, on one hand, and mistakes, on the other. The continuous rise of this pandemic resulted in the government taking steps to put bars on the transportation of humans and goods. The manufacturing industries experienced a temporary shutdown in their activities to curb the virus. The factory shut down and their border lockdowns have impacted manufacturing, supply, and sales of various industries, thus stopping the production of safety products and their adoption in buildings. However, as the situation normalizes, businesses are resuming, including construction activity. With construction projects getting underway, the market for new fire protection products will rise gradually with the ease of the supply chain.
