An emergency tool that is regularly used to extinguish small flames is a portable fire extinguisher. It minimizes the prospective destruction of the property until the firefighters arrive at the place where the fire has been set up. A fire extinguisher is a cylinder with an extinguishing agent inside it, a nozzle, a hand, a dle, and a pressure gauge. It is capable of emitting the extinguishing agent at high pressure for putting off the fire by keeping the flame away from oxygen and interfering with the flame’s chemical reaction.
The Fire Extinguisher market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4% to reach US$ 12.2 Bn in 2031.
Covid-19 Market Impact & Status
The unprecedented outbreak of a fatal virus named COVID-19 in early 2019 led to an incomparable global public health emergency that adversely impacted almost every industry across the globe. The long-term consequences are likely to continue to affect a few parts of the industry over the forecast period. since fire extinguishers are important and the demands remain the same and hike significantly regardless of any uncertainties. Therefore, the fire extinguisher industry was less impacted by the COVID-19 wave.
Europe is the leading region in the fire extinguishers industry
The European region is the leading region in the fire extinguisher industry. It is holding a majority of the share of the fire extinguisher market. The chief manufacturers participating in the global market are inclined towards introducing eco-friendly extinguishers which are based on gas/powder fire that do not emit toxic gas or pollutants. These sustainable extinguishers are small, lightweight, and cost-effective. Moreover, numerous companies are adopting collaborations, partnerships, and Acquisitions to widen their customer base and expand their business operations globally.
Various Governments of countries worldwide are imposing safety norms for the public to avert the unforeseen fire calamities. This has led to the adoption of fire extinguishers almost everywhere such as in households, restaurants, hotels, schools, colleges, shopping complexes hospitals, offices, and factories. The demand for fire extinguishers is prompted by rapid industrialization, and the construction of commercial complexes, specifically in developing economies. The market is driven by the insurance agencies which have made it mandatory for every industry to install a fire extinguisher in buildings. The prime players in the global industry are coming up with eco-friendly, gas and powder-based fire extinguishers which do not emit any toxic gases. Additionally, they are expanding their product line by introducing small, light, and affordable fire extinguishers. Several companies are also emphasizing collaborations and acquisitions to broaden their customer base and hike their market operations around the world.
Some of the components propelling the prominence of fire extinguishers are Increasing construction activities for the development of new industrial plants, and commercial centres, the launch of new housing projects, and the implementation of stringent safety norms against fir. Furthermore, the innovation of sound-based firefighting technology is another factor boosting the growth of this market and will continue to do so over the next few years.
In addition to this, the researchers aligned with this industry have developed a new product for extinguishing fire called the Vacuum Extinguish Method (VEM). VEM is the reverse concept of conventional methods of extinguishing small fires. It inhales the combustion products, even flame, and the firing source itself to a vacuum chamber (which is inbuilt inside it) to clean up the fire zone. This breakthrough has been prover beneficial for space used for preventing the spread of harmful combustible products in the enclosed cabin.
Though the efficient and appropriate use of fire extinguishers does not cause any harm, there is some sort of outer risks such as mild respiratory, skin, or eye irritation. The spray of fire extinguishers in areas with poor airflow or using to harm someone or purposeful inhalation of fire extinguishers can lead to severe injuries to human beings. Fires not only bring the loss of many precious lives and injuries to the masses but also lead to huge property loss. Fire in residential buildings, especially in high-storey buildings becomes more intense and may lead to fatalities and great disruption. Since fire extinguishers are small in size and can only extinguish small fires, it becomes a restraining factor in the growth of the fire extinguishers market worldwide.
Some of the key players in the global fire extinguishers market are Tyco Fire Products LP, Britannia Fire Ltd., United Technologies Corporation, Amerex Corporation, First Alert Inc., Feuer Schutz Jockey GmbH & Co. KG, Ceasefire Industries Pvt. Ltd., Minimax GmbH & Company KG, JL Industries, Inc., and Desautels.
