Industrial, commercial spaces are at risk of catching fire, damaging property, and putting human lives in danger. The need to curb the fire has potential applications for devices like flame arrestors to grow in these units. Such devices are designed to provide backup in case of failure of the foremost safety devices.
A flame arrestor’s basic function is to let the gas seep through it but does not facilitate flame generation. Fire safety devices are very much applauded in the industrial setting, hospital residential, and residential spaces. The rising number of fire accidents in India and the USA puts the fire safety device market at the forefront in industrial and commercial spaces. As per the NFPA report, fire accidents in the USA in 2018 caused a $12.3 billion loss to the property.
Examples of fire accidents in the pharmaceutical space have been increasing in India leading to heavy damage to lives and other critical work. India and China record the maximum number of deaths caused by fire accidents in the pharma sector. As the industry becomes more exposed to flames and fires, the introduction of the type of flame arrestor will work to subside the accidents and lead to rising opportunities for the flame arrestor units.
The oil leaks can also prompt fire-induced accidents making the fire safety device a must-have in steel plants. 2019 and 2020 period recorded significant fire accidents due to oil leaks causing heavy losses. The in-line type can fulfill the need of the steel plants to stop flames from spreading proving useful for the market demand.
The need of the market and industry is to serve and employ specific safety devices such as flame arrestors to avoid accidents and curb the spread of flames. As industrialization advances and enters the 4.0 stage, the need for improved safety increases in each industrial space.
The market has long been revolutionized by the invention of the flame arrestors in 1815 to provide safety to miners from toxic explosions. Fatalities caused by the explosion in mines are very much prevalent in India and the USA, pushing the demand for flame arrestors in the market domain. Adequate resource allocation to fire safety services is also necessary to build the market’s potential. Government regulations to support the programs on fire safety would also work towards high market growth. Increased Investment in fire safety devices is also welcomed to address the issue of rising fire in urban units. The market’s expansion is also enhanced by the collaborative efforts between manufacturers of flame arrestors. As the product is also experiencing high demand from varied applications, manufacturers like Paradox Intellectual Properties are investing in testing facilities leading to the effective growth of the market. Adding to the growth of the market, manufacturers by taking part in exhibitions have showcased the new designs of the flame arrestors with internationally recognized certifications. Vendors are also recognized on the national platforms by supporting the government’s vision, receiving awards, and conducting training for the large pool of consumers. As the market is also a culmination of different projects undertaken in various verticals, the rise in pipeline assignments would also have a positive impact on market demand.
The in-line type will have a large market penetration owing to their wide use in the gas industry. As countries engage in the large-scale exploration of gas, the need for safety increases leading to better use of the in-line type flame arrestors. Manufacturers are also engaged in developing low maintenance, and corrosion resistance in line-type to suit the industry needs. Elmac Technologies’ In-line type offers various capabilities which include high temperature and pressure.
The end-of-line type will have a rising trend given its increased use in the heavy metal industry. This type is designed using advanced technology and superior raw materials as per the industrial needs.
Storage tanks would see high use of flame arrestors due to the critical roles storage tanks play in the distribution system. Flame arrestors are deployed in storage tanks to prevent the explosion and hazards concerned with flammable materials. Chemical process units have a high prevalence of using storage tanks containing explosive materials and chemicals.
Pipelines will also use fire safety mechanisms to stop the fire from spreading to either cylinders or regulators. Flame arrestors help in extinguishing the flames in ducts, pipelines and potentially reducing the intensity of flames to reach the whole system.
The oil and gas vertical will be the largest user of flame arrestors due to the risk posed by explosives chemicals used in the industry. The industry is employing internationally certified flame arrestors to ensure the safety of the plants and staff. The areas which can lead to large-scale implementation of fire safety devices are the vapor system and low-pressure gas. Rising fire incidence in the industry also has positive implications for the flame arrestors market.
The Pharmaceutical domain will see a rising trend given the prevalence of toxic/explosive materials in the industry. The industry needs the wide acceptance of flame arrestors and awareness to better regulate the safety standards put down by the government.
Europe’s dominating presence in the market would be sustained by the leading manufacturers of flame arrestors in the region. Leading brands in the region like AccuFlow, Aktek, and AERON also lead to high growth for the flame arrestor units.
The Asia Pacific’s growing industrial space and government regulations to help promote the fire safety programs and training will leave room for flame arrestor devices to grow in the region.
