The construction industry has observed perennial growth in the past and is likely to expand further over the coming years, fueling the consumption of fire protection systems & materials. In 2019, the market value of the global construction industry showcased growth of above 2.6%, which was slightly lower than the previous year (3.2%). Furthermore, a forecast by the Global Construction Perspectives and the Oxford Economics predicted that the construction industry will reach a value of USD 15.5 trillion by 2030. A positive outlook of the construction sector and increasing investments in developing regions will substantially boost the demand for fire protection systems.

Fire resistance walls & floors dominated the overall sales

Passive fire proofing systems play a pivotal role along with active fire protection systems to ensure the safety of buildings and occupants. These products also help in containing smoke and different types of toxic gases, contributing significantly to fire-related deaths. Many product manufacturers are investing in research & development activities to develop new products with improved fire resistance properties.

The fire resistance walls and floors segment is poised to account for around USD 7 billion by 2027. Fire-rated panels that are used to fireproof walls & floors offer excellent protection in an event of a fire and can withstand temperatures of above 2,000°F. These panels deliver a high strength-to-weight ratio and aesthetics to complement the building’s architecture.

Opening protection application to offer potential opportunities in the market

Compartmentation application is set to capture more than 35% of the passive fire proofing system market share in 2027. In case of a fire hazard, compartmentation of the building plays a crucial role in fire containment. Fire resistant walls, floors, and ceilings are the major elements used in such measures. However, the opening protection segment is expected to be the fastest growing application area for passive fire proofing systems owing to the rising adoption of fire-containing measures such as fire doors and windows.

Commercial end-user dominated the market revenue

Passive fire protection systems sales for commercial end-users is projected to register growth rate of nearly 4.5% through 2027. The rising importance of fireproof structures and introduction of fire protection regulatory framework in developing countries will support the market demand. Growing construction activities in the commercial sector will pave the way for industry expansion. Moreover, the industrial segment will gain traction due to strict regulatory norms established by respective governments to minimize the cases of fire-related accidents.
