Fire Protection Systems Market size is set to be over USD 70 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.
The growing regulations and standards by governments across the globe for reducing the fire risks across facilities are playing a vital role in driving the fire protection systems industry. The growing awareness among individuals in Europe and North America is increasing the market demand. According to The Confederation of Fire Protection Associations Europe (CFPA), there has been enhancement in fire safety systems and government initiatives to increase the awareness among the citizens. For instance, according to CFPA, Europe fire fatalities had been reduced by 65% over the last 30 years due to installation of fire detectors and alarms in infrastructures, influencing the market demand.
Lack of awareness in growing economies and fluctuation in raw material prices are some of the factors hindering the fire protection systems market revenue. The fire deaths and accidents in countries, such as Jordan, Hungary, Bulgaria, and Croatia, have increased over the years due to the lack of awareness associated with the fire protection systems. According to International Association of Fire and Rescue Services, in 2018, over 4.5 million fire incidents took place around the globe with more than 50% in underdeveloped economies due to lack of awareness, fire regulation, and technology upgrade.
