Fire Alarm Equipment: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – With safety and security assuming critical significance against a backdrop of rising violence in today’s world, electronic security systems such as fire alarm equipment, CCTV/Video surveillance equipment, and access control systems, among others, are fast becoming an integral part of building infrastructure worldwide. The fire alarms market especially has been witnessing incremental feature innovations over the years and new generation systems currently feature better efficiency, lesser false alarms, and faster response times. Multi-sensors that integrate a variety of detection tools in a solitary logic head, and application dependent detectors have emerged as preferred technologies for quicker response and improved resistance to false alarms. Several developments and introductions have taken place in remote screening and diagnostics that offer better features such as distributed intelligence and superior surveillance. A number of manufacturers are also shifting to multi-criterion detectors such as smoke detectors and are incorporating CO as an important fire component. In addition, increasing opportunities and new developments in the CO detectors is also driving the growth as hotels, schools, nursing homes and other buildings are installing and upgrading carbon monoxide detectors to implement novel NFPA 720-2009 CO detection standards.

Growth in the global fire alarm equipment market will stem largely from the need to comply with the stringent building security norms stipulated in respective countries. Several countries, especially the developed economies such as the US, Europe and Japan, stipulate strict norms for commercial, manufacturing site, residential, educational and entertainment buildings thereby fueling the demand for fire alarm equipment. Additionally, the market is poised to benefit from the retrofit demand emanating from existing buildings that replace the obsolete systems in the process of complying with the newer regulations. Also driving growth in the market is the growing demand from developing economies across the world. Characterized by burgeoning economies, increasing foreign investments, rise in the number of new business establishments, increase in employment opportunities, household income, and subsequent rise in residential and commercial building constructions, Asia-Pacific in general is witnessing increased adoption of fire alarm equipment. The Asia-Pacific market will receive further impetus from the large population base in India and China, which will propel demand for new constructions, thus driving adoption of fire alarm equipment.

While the market in major countries across the globe witness steady growth, Europe is mired in new challenges. Economic activity across the European Union has been fairly volatile all through the year 2011 and the Euro plunged to its lowest point in over two years in mid-2012. The downward spiral of the Euro crisis has triggered volatility in the housing and construction markets in the region primarily because of the austerity measures that limit public expenditure and financing for infrastructure projects. Consequently, the market for fire alarm equipment is witnessing dampened growth reflecting the sharp decline in construction activity in the region. However, the relatively less steep declines in non-residential renovations, provides a ray of hope for the fire alarm equipment market. Key reasons cited for the better performance of the renovations sector is the EU Government’s emphasis on green and energy efficient buildings. As sustainable constructions emerge to represent the domestic construction industry’s new future, the flurry of renovations is poised to benefit the fire alarm equipment market.

As stated by the new market research report on Fire Alarm Equipment, Europe represents the largest regional market worldwide. Asia-Pacific region emerges as the fastest growing regional market with the revenues from the region projected to wax at a CAGR of 6.9% over the analysis period. Among the product segments, Fire Alarm Panels represents the largest product segment, while Fire Alarm Devices is the fastest growing product segment.
