Fire and Gas Systems

The Fire and Gas Systems Global Market Research Study delivers current market analysis plus a five year market and technology forecast. The study is available in multiple editions including worldwide, all regions, and most major countries.

Fire and Gas SystemsThe main objective of fire & gas systems in process plants is to protect personnel, plant assets, and the environment.  A fire & gas system continuously monitors the plant for fire and harmful gases and provides early warnings so that proper mitigating actions can be taken in a timely manner.  Therefore, the fire & gas system is often described as a mitigation safety layer because it facilitates actions to reduce the consequences of a hazardous event after it has occurred.

The total revenue reported for this analysis of the fire & gas systems market consists of hardware, software, and services.  Revenues have been also segmented by product type: gas detectors, smoke detectors, flame detectors, heat detectors, fire and gas controllers, and related accessories.

Fire and Gas Detector Manufacturers Are Moving Their Products to Cloud-based Systems

Gas detection manufacturers are moving their products to cloud-based systems, and that technology in turn is allowing them to manage their gas detection program remotely.  Gas detectors need to be calibrated and in the process, a person tests the detectors in different hazardous conditions to make sure it is working correctly.  At the end of every shift, each detector is placed into a docking station, which is connected both to the cloud and to the manufacturer, which can then monitor the detector.  This predictive technology is helping manufacturer as well as the end user in maintaining the gas detectors and avoiding accidents.

Fire and Gas Systems Strategic Issues

Fire and Gas Systems Forecast

In addition to providing a five-year market forecast, the Fire & Gas Systems market research provides detailed quantitative current market data and addresses key strategic issues as follows.

Strategic Issue for Fire & Gas Systems Vendors: Price-sensitive Markets in Developing Nations

Many large global companies have moved their manufacturing operations to developing nations such as China and India to take advantage of low-cost labor.  These companies are building world-scale plants with state-of-the-art instrumentation and systems.  While these global companies have the desire and resources to implement high-priced advanced field devices, local small manufacturers are looking for low-cost solutions.  In countries such as China and India, capital funding is expensive, and hence, many local manufacturers, with limited financing, are highly cost-conscious.  These end users are more concerned about their ability to make an affordable upfront investment, and this often results in low-cost equipment purchases.  While this scenario presents an opportunity to low-cost fire & gas systems suppliers, the competition in this segment is fierce.  The tough competition puts further downward pressure on price, inhibiting market revenue growth.

Strategic Issue for Users:  High Installation and Maintenance Costs of Fire Protection Systems

One of the major factors affecting the growth of this market is the high maintenance cost of fire detection systems.  Fire & gas detection systems require testing every 90 days to maintain calibrated standards.  Periodic maintenance of these systems is necessary to avoid accidents and casualties.  The high maintenance cost prevents end users from adopting fire & gas detection systems, thus impeding the growth of the market.
