“Integration of control and safety systems significantly reduce the need for cabling and networking. End-users can update various subsystems such as UV detectors to detect gas, flames, and smoke. Thus, the integration of control and safety systems is likely to grow in future,” said Bharath Kanniappan, one of Technavio’s lead analysts for automation research.

“Integration at the controller level allows plant-wide SIS point data, alarms and events, sequence of event information, diagnostics and system information, and operator display to any station. This reduces hardware costs, minimizes shutdowns, and allows plants to recover easily from a power outage,” added Bharath.

Oil and gas: largest segment of the global fire and gas detection systems market

The global F&G detection system market in the oil and gas industry was valued at over USD 287 million in 2015. The oil and gas industry involves tank farms, storage areas, and loading/unloading operations of oil and gas that are easily exposed to fire and explosion. Thus, it requires fire and gas detection systems to protect employees, plant assets, and the environment. Consequences of accidents at oil and gas terminals can be serious, and companies are prone to heavy losses.

Operators in oil and gas terminal applications require integrated fire and gas safety systems that allow proactive response to alarms and events. These systems are also needed for a real-time view of any possible threats in future.

Chemical and petrochemical: second largest segment of the global fire and gas detection systems market

The global fire and gas detection system market in the chemical and petrochemical industry was valued at USD 206 million in 2015. The chemical and petrochemical industry in APAC and EMEA is growing significantly due to increased capital investments in the automotive, pharmaceutical, foods and beverages, pulp and paper, packaging, and water and wastewater treatment industries. Companies in these regions incorporate international standards of safety and quality in the plant as they compete at a global level. The inherent nature of the chemical industry involves high chances of explosion, fire, and other accidents that affect plant’s productivity and pollute the environment. Thus, these companies incorporate fire and gas detection system to alleviate abnormal situations that may arise from fire or gas leakage.

The companies need to follow international safety standards such NFPA 2-2011 to ensure installation of comprehensive fire protection equipment in the areas dealing with hydrogen. The high amount of chemical and gas such as nitrogen, fluorine, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide increases the need for a system to monitor the source of the fire. A chemical and petrochemical plant operations have an inherent need to adjust and control temperature, pressure, and flow to produce products. These products at each stage are connected to different facilities through piping to regulate processes such as reaction, distillation, and filtration. These processes have potential threats for leakage of gas and fire that require high-integrated F&G detection and control systems.

Global fire and gas detection systems in the pharmaceutical industry

The global pharmaceutical industry is predicted to grow rapidly during the forecast period because of high demand for drugs from emerging countries such as China, India, Brazil, and Russia. These countries focus on producing vital medicines at low costs. High capital spending and R&D in the pharmaceutical industry will drive the growth of fire and gas detection system market over the forecast period.

The pharmaceutical industry is making heavy capital expenditures to improve the quality of production process by incorporating high-level automation solutions and safety systems that include electrostatic discharge (ESD) systems, high integrity pressure protection system (HIPPS), and fire and gas (F&G) detection systems for high-integrated plant safety. Increased demand for upgrading traditional safety systems with the new and advanced integrated systems will thus augment the demand for fire and gas detection systems until 2019.
