Fire Fighting Chemicals for Fire Prevention

Firefighting chemicals such as halon, monoammonium phosphate, carbon dioxide, sodium chloride, potassium citrate, and potassium bicarbonate are widely used to extinguish fire. These chemicals are used in several firefighting equipment such as automatic fire sprinklers, portable fire extinguishers, fire dampers, fire retardant bulkhead, and others.

Fire Retardant Bulkheads to Remain the Fastest Growing Segment

Portable extinguishers can be deployed in machinery spaces, accommodation spaces, and decks. They are easy to use and are extensively utilized in construction sites automobiles, ships, aircraft, and commercial and residential buildings.

Automatic sprinkler systems detect existence of heat and smoke with the help of sensors and release a spray of extinguishing agents coupled with water as an additive. This system can be fixed on ceilings of commercial and residential buildings, factories, and other establishments.

However, fire retardant bulkhead is expected to be the fastest growing segment in terms of revenue in the years to come. It is mostly employed in ships. Marine vessels and oil platforms need passive fire protection for life safety and equipment protection. Decks and bulkheads are usually insulated with fire resistant high temperature insulation to avoid accidents and hazards. Ships may sink into the bottom of the ocean in critical cases when the bulkheads or decks are compromised.

Fire dampers application segment is estimated to moderate to high growth rate during the forecast period. Fire dampers can be placed in the ventilation system of cargo holds, server rooms, and engine rooms. Server rooms are set aside in air conditioning to minimize the effect of heat produced from continuous data transfer activity. Fire dampers can be used to stop supply of oxygen as malfunction of air condition may produce fire.

Market Overview

According to Grand View Research, Inc.; the worldwide fire fighting chemicals market is likely to reach USD 2.9 billion by 2025. Intensifying safety concerns and substantial growth of employment opportunities in firefighting safety chemicals service owing to stringent safety regulations can drive the market.
