Actual Market Research 28-07-2022 Region : North America Category : Manufacturing & Industry Machinery, Parts & Equipment

Fire safety equipment or tools are the products that are designed specifically for protection against fires, and they also include the components that not only detect fire but also perform operations to lessen or reduce its impact. This equipment includes fire-resistant gloves, fire-resistant protective safety gear, fire blankets, communication equipment, smoke and other alarms, sprinklers, respirators, fire extinguishers, and fire hoses. These tools can be used by both trained fire-fighters as well as unskilled users who are using this equipment for the first time. Fire fighting equipment like sprinkler systems can be integrated into the infrastructure of the system. These work as fire-stopping devices by spraying water over the fire to lessen the impact of the fire. The fire fighting equipment is further comprised of many parts and pieces of the equipment and technology. For example, extinguishers use water, dry chemical powder, foam, carbon dioxide or other substances; inner lining suit, fire-resistant outer suit, outer gloves, wooden socks, fire-resistant shoes, helmets, communication systems, and breathing apparatus are all included under the category of fire-fighter’s gear systems. The US has a dominant position in North America in the fire safety equipment market and it is the world leader in the production of this fire-protection equipment. The fire equipment industry is anticipated to grow in the US but not too much as US residential construction is expected to stagnate during that period with few major improvements. However, according to the data collected by the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA), the number of fire incidents decreased in 2019 to 1,291,500 but the deaths increased by up to 24% from the previous year and the figures totalled 3,704. Moreover, the number of injured people was down by 12.5% and totalled 16,600 in 2019, but loss by fire increased by 74.5%, with an amount totalling 14.8 billion USD in 2019. This led to the growth of the fire equipment industry in the US as some data showed a downward trend, but still, they were very large in numbers.

According to the report titled "United States Fire Safety Equipment Market Research Report, 2027", published by Actual Market Research, the fire safety equipment market in the US is expected to grow by over 4% during the forecast period ending in 2027. Legislative requirements from various developed nations, like the United States, have mandated the installation of this fire protection equipment, thereby leading to the increased adoption of fire safety devices. The US is like heaven for a majority of the prominent companies operating in this segment, and these companies, along with the government of the US consisting of fire safety departments, are consistently and actively involved in spreading awareness regarding fire safety. Therefore, the US is expected to lead the entire world throughout the forecast period. There are various improvements and innovations that are being carried out by the companies in order to come up with more efficient and capable products in the market, such as Johnson Controls, which has come up with corrosion solutions for fire sprinkler systems, which are known by the name TYCO. These items will help to extend the life of well and dry fire sprinkler systems. Moreover, in addition to that, they also consist of an inline detector that monitors the system and gives an early sign of corrosion. Companies are coming up with strategies of mergers and acquisitions in order to increase their customer base and to reduce competition in the market by acquiring small companies like new entrants like CertaSite, a US-based company that provides fire protection services, acquired Great Lakes Fire & Safety Equipment Company for an undisclosed amount. This company is involved in the business of fire extinguishers.

The market based on the product types is segregated into fire detection, fire alarm, and fire suppression systems. Among these types, fire detection systems have a majority of the market share, but with time, this segment’s market is decreasing due to the rise in the use of fire suppression systems. Fire detection systems consist of smoke, heat, flame, gas, carbon monoxide, and multi-sensor detectors that are used in sensing the smoke and heat that arise from the fire's ignition. Early detection will lead to a timely response in case of fire and less damage to lives and property, which is the major reason behind the growth of this segment. within the fire detection segment. Smoke detectors have a higher market share, followed by heat detectors. Fire suppression systems in the region are likely to be growing with the best average annual growth rate among the product types during the forecasted period with increasing market share. On the basis of application types, the US fire protection equipment market is segmented into commercial, industrial, and residential segments. With a high population, the US is the third most populous region in the world after China and India, and as sky-reaching, high-rise buildings are very common in the region, there is an increased need to safeguard them from fire risk. This further leads to higher growth rates in the commercial and residential sectors, making the commercial segment lead the regional market with a share of more than 40%. In the US region, many of the residential fires are caused mainly by cooking in houses. Past trends show more than 40% of residential fires are caused due to cooking, and due to this, the residential segment is expected to have the best growth rate among the application types.

The recent COVID-19 pandemic had negative impacts on the fire safety equipment market in the region, which further affected the world market as many developing countries were heavily reliant on the US region for fire protection equipment. Furthermore, a partial lockdown was observed in several countries like the US due to an increase in COVID-19 cases as a result of the outbreak's second wave. Due to this, trade restrictions and supply chain disruptions decreased the production of fire safety equipment, which led to a negative impact on the market. As the situation normalizes, everything will function similarly to pre-COVID levels, which will further increase the demand for this equipment with the increased fire incidents that are likely going to happen. The demand for fire protection systems is expected to rise in response to the increasing urban population and the need to protect lives and the environment from fire emergencies.

The approach of the report:
This report consists of a combined approach of primary as well as secondary research. Initially, secondary research was used to get an understanding of the market and list out the companies that are present in it. The secondary research consists of third-party sources such as press releases and annual reports of companies, analyzing government-generated reports and databases. After gathering the data from secondary sources, primary research was conducted by conducting telephonic interviews with the leading players about how the market is functioning and then conducting trade calls with dealers and distributors of the market. After this, we have started making primary calls to consumers by equally segmenting consumers into regional aspects, tier aspects, age group, and gender. Once we have primary data with us, we can start verifying the details obtained from secondary sources.

Intended audience
This report can be useful to industry consultants, manufacturers, suppliers, associations & organizations related to fire safety equipment industry, government bodies and other stakeholders to align their market-centric strategies. In addition to marketing & presentations, it will also increase competitive knowledge about the industry.
