Flame Barrier Market size is anticipated to witness substantial growth during the forecasted time period owing to increasing applications in construction, automotive and aerospace industries. These products are widely used in the manufacturing of electronic products including electric switches, lightings and electric plugs owing to its property to resist flame which may stimulate the market growth.
These products are designed to resist fire and provide protection from fire. Different products usage including of various types including bricks, sheets and sealants is anticipated to stimulate flame barrier market share. It is used in construction industry for seal coatings, fire resisting and electronic product manufacturing as they act as barrier for spread of fire. Flame resistance sheets including FRB-NT076, FRB-WT145 and FRB-WT225 are used in automotive & aerospace industries. Flame bricks are made of flexible polyurethane foam which has medium density and are designed to firestop which is ideal for its application in construction industry.
Rising construction industry and technological developments have enhanced the application of these products in automotive industry. The product is made of flexible polyurethane foam with medium density which stops fire of large construction openings with various electrical penetrants. These sheets when exposed to fire expands and provides tight sealant barrier for flame, smoke and toxic gases passage. Flame barrier bricks are easily cut and added in flame barrier spaces in building constructions and can also be reused. Growing construction industry and rising concern for infrastructure safety has increased product usage, thereby driving the flame barrier market.
These products are extensively used in manufacture of electric products including lights, switches, electronic appliances and batteries owing to its high ability to protect people from devasting effects of fire. These sheets are inorganic, halogen free material with different flame ratings to control fire explosion. The sheets have different characteristics for its flame resistant property including 5VA, 5VB,V-0, V-1, V-2 and HB. In 2019, the global sales value of electronic appliances was estimated to be over USD 270 billion according to a report of May 2019. Rising demand for electronic appliances along with consumer awareness for safe and good quality appliances may drive the flame barrier market growth.
Sealant barriers are used in hospitals, building construction and schools for its electric application for fire resistance and occupants safety. Fire barrier sealants are of different types including acrylic, silicone and polyurethane. The intumescent property of the sealant expands in fire and prevents penetration of fire through it and stops explosion and spread of fire. The products are used in firestopping joints and needs skilled workers for proper installation. The fire barrier sealants are ready to use, high performance, and latex based which forms monolithic fire resist seal. The product has its application in metallic pipes, plastic pipes , HVAC devices, cables and insulated pipes which may trigger the flame sealant product demand. Stringent government orders towards safe infrastructure construction may fuel the flame barrier market growth.
North America driven by U.S and Canada may exhibit substantial growth in the forecasted time period owing to increasing focus on developing safety standards of construction and industrial applications have enhanced product use. The region led by gas and oil industry may show significant growth in flame barriers market demand. In 2019, the U.S construction market value was estimated to be over USD 1.15 million according to a report. Rising disposable income and increased application of fire resisting products in public places and hospitals may exhibit regional flame barrier market sales.
Asia Pacific driven by China, India and Japan is anticipated to witness significant growth owing to rising construction sector in the region which has increased product’s application scope. In 2019, the construction market value of Asia-Pacific was estimated to be over USD 1.5 billion according to a recent report of 2020. Consumers are emphasizing on improving safety standards of buildings which may raise product demand in the construction industry. Rising demand for fire safety infrastructures and increasing demand for residential buildings in the region may stimulate the flame barrier market.
Global flame barriers industry share is fragmented as market consist of large players. Companies like 3M Company, Specified Technologies, H.B. Fuller, Metacaulk, Trafalgar Passive Fire Protection Systems and Everbuild building products limited are players in this market.
