The global fire sprinkler market to grow at a CAGR of 9.17% during the period 2016-2020.
Among the different sectors of construction, the demand for fire sprinklers is comparatively high in the commercial, infrastructure, and industrial construction sectors. Electrical equipment and other flammable components that are used in complex and heat-intensive processes are being dealt with extra care to avoid any untoward instances.
One trend propelling growth in this market is the use of advanced technologies. Vendors focus on manufacturing sprinkler systems with advanced technologies. For instance, water mist technology was being used in the early 1980s in the US. However, high-pressure water mist can be used in museums, hotels, and data centers, apart from industrial buildings.
According to the report, one driver spurring growth in this market is the cost benefits of sprinkler systems. The domestic sprinkler system is available at a low cost, with a price range similar to that of a domestic smoke alarm. The cost per life saved by a fire sprinkler system is lesser than that of smoke alarms. The sprinkler system and smoke alarm can be effective in reducing the number of expected fire deaths per year.
Further, the report states that the risks associated with the corrosion of sprinkler pipes will hinder market growth during the predicted period. Sprinkler pipes are prone to corrosion, affecting the operation and performance of the system. Uncontrolled corrosion clogs pipe and control valves, leading to reduced water flow from the sprinklers, while discovered corrosion impacts the performance reliability.
