Rapid end-use applications such as oil & gas, chemicals, aerospace, manufacturing, logistics, defense, etc are fostering remarkable progress in global flame detector market.
Advantages such as superlative flame sensing and monitoring capabilities for most common industrial fuels, false alarm immunity, longer detection range and response time than various flame detection technology alternatives available today, large field of view (FOV), and self-diagnostics meeting highest reliability standards are encouraging further adoption of global flame detector. These factors are collectively influencing thumping growth in the global flame detector market, ensuring an overall market size of USD 2.5 Bn by 2028 with an annualized growth rate of 4.85 from 2021 to 2028.
Flame detector is a sensor that detects and responds to a flame or fire caused from wide range of processing, manufacturing, and other hazardous processes in different industries. The flame detectors have the ability to respond to the most common industrial fuels preventing catastrophic fires and further consequences. It detects most common fuels like alcohols, diesel, gasoline, jet fuels, ethylene, hydrogen, sulphur, and other fuels. The flame detectors satisfy all the industrial process and plant flame detection requirements. Flame detector is therefore extensively used across various industries.
Factors such as rising adoption of wireless technologies, supportive government policies, industries stringent adopting government safety regulations, increasing human & property loss due to sudden fires in processing and manufacturing plants and other industries are some key factors driving the global flame detectors market.
However, false alarms, inability of flame detectors to detect industrial fuels leading to catastrophic fires, low detection time and limited distance coverage are likely to hamper the global flame detector market. Nevertheless, advanced flame detectors coming up in the market addressing current challenges, government initiatives, rising adoption of wireless technology, robust flame detectors constructed with plus features addressing extreme weather challenges are anticipated to be growth opportunity to the global flame detector market.
