According to this market research report, the global enhanced fire protection systems market is driven by factors such as the growing trend of developing a safety culture in companies, widespread implementation of regulations relating to the use of environmentally sustainable products, and increasing capacity additions, and rapid development of the oil and gas industry. Another key factor driving this market is the establishment of incident sharing techniques that result in stricter safety norms and also the growing need for equipment that use advanced technology. Enhanced fire protection systems form a very crucial part of all oil and gas installations. The strict implementation of safety norms by hydrocarbon agencies of various countries is a key reason why several oil and gas operators are increasing their investments in the area of fire safety.
The TMR report segments the global enhanced fire protection systems market on the basis of end users, the type of systems, and geography. The various end users in the global enhanced fire protection systems market are fixed platforms, offshore rigs, and FPSO & FLNG. At present, much of the demand for enhanced fire protection systems comes from the market for offshore drilling rigs. Even though the utilization of rigs has been declining over the past couple of years, the enhanced fire protection systems market in regions such as Venezuela and Latin America have emerged as strong players in the overall market for offshore drilling. The market for FLNG and FPSO is expected to grow substantially during the forecast period and will be a key end user segment in the forthcoming years as well. The two main types of systems in the global enhanced fire protection systems market are passive and active systems.
Geographically, this research study segments the global enhanced fire protection systems market into Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, and Rest of the World. The Rest of the World region holds the largest share of the global enhanced fire protection systems market, with high concentration of offshore development projects in Brazil. Also, the offshore expansion projects in the Middle East and West Africa will contribute significantly to the global enhanced fire protection systems market in the years to come. The growth of the Europe enhanced fire protection systems market will be supported by high investments in a few of the offshore areas of Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan during the forecast period. High focus on workforce training in offshore installations is a glaring restraint in the global enhanced fire protection systems market.
The expenses on enhanced fire protection systems for the offshore gas and oil industry, worldwide, were valued at US$3218.7 million in 2013. It is expected to reach US$4142.4 million in 2020, increasing at 3.7% CAGR during 2014 to 2020.
