The global high-pressure pump for fixed firefighting misting system market size was valued at USD 149.9 million in 2021. The market is projected to grow from USD 157.8 million in 2022 to USD 235.1 million by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period. The global COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented and staggering, with high-pressure pump for fixed firefighting misting system experiencing lower-than-anticipated demand across all regions compared to pre-pandemic levels. Based on our analysis, the global high-pressure pump for fixed firefighting misting system market exhibited a decline of -7.0% in 2020 as compared to 2019.
High-pressure fire pumps are essential components for high pressure water misting systems. A high pressure misting system is commonly used to enhance the water pressure when it is not befitting for the system. The system generally comes with an interlock pre action system, which is activated only upon the event of detection device activation. These are commonly found in buildings with high-pressure demand such as high-rises or storage warehouses.
Supply Chain Disruptions and Manufacturing Unit Closures Slowed Market Growth Amid Pandemic
The outbreak of COVID-19 has caused a global health emergency, resulting in the slowing down of trade and production units, affecting multiple industry verticals. In addition, the pandemic has affected different industries in different ways such as the lack of operative staff, underinvestment, closure of industrial plants, and limited international transactions to market the products.
Furthermore, travel restrictions imposed by individual countries or regions impact the suppliers' ability to manufacture and deliver goods on time, which could lead, in turn, to manufacturers being unable to fulfill their obligations toward customers on time. Such failure could harm the respective project and manufacturers' ability to secure new contracts in the future, leading to a decline in revenues. Subsequently, the volatility of raw material prices has also led to a slight decline in various manufacturers.

Water-based Mist System to Emerge as the Most Attractive Product Type for Specific Applications Owing to Increasing Fire Related Safety
The increase in demand for specialty application across commercial & industrial sectors, such as parking lots, water mist for data centers, ro-ro rooms, restaurants, and others, has aroused the need for fire safety measures. This is propelling the business landscape for the high-pressure pump for fixed firefighting misting system market growth.
Rising fire hazardous concerns among cloud-based service providers, database managers, car parking lots, heritage places, and others are increasing the demand for high-pressure pumps to be used in safety devices such as fixed firefighting misting systems. Characteristics such as the use of less water, lower damage to properties, easy installation, and quick activation compared to other fire protection technologies resulted in a wide adoption of firefighting-based misting systems.
For example, Danfoss’ SEM-SAFE high-pressure water mist system for data centers fire safety comes with a double interlocking system and modular design providing additional security and flexibility for structure expansion. Moreover, the application area can be protected with a single pump unit, serves an inexpensive purpose, and is expected to lead to the growth of the global market in the forecast timeframe.
Subsequently, Marioff Corporation's HI-FOG water mist fire suppression system for applications such as ro-ro spaces and cargo spaces have set foot on popularity over the past decade due to its effectiveness and less stability issues compared to other fire suppression systems.
Increasing Digitalization of Fire Safety Components to Drive Market Growth
The surge in digital adoption has brought technological advancements, improving work/applications across all sectors. Digital tools, such as PLCs and IoT, are widely adopted for networks of devices embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and actuators that bring connectivity to a new level. Subsequently, due to their rapid adoption, various systems manufacturers are utilizing digital technologies to improve system efficiency in the fire safety space.
For example, in April 2022, Marioff, a leading water based fire misting system manufacturer, launched its land fire protection system. The new system is equipped with a PLC-based pump controller and an intuitive user interface which helps in system logs status, display of other important data, analyze the data, and initiate remote troubleshooting and others. This factor enables system maintenance to be carried out through remote operation via a digital system.
Such digital stratagem across the fire safety industry is likely to grow the fixed firefighting smiting, further resulting in the market growth of high-pressure pump for fixed firefighting misting system.
Compensation for Lack of Structural Fire Protection in Building Areas to Drive Market Growth
Lack of adequate structural fire protection is frequent in various commercial spaces. In many cases, glass facades or exposed steel beams do not have the required fire resistance. These factors could result in insufficient provisions of fire safety within a building and considerably enhance the risk to a fire's life and property and structural safety, thus contributing to fire hazards.
Integrating a high-pressure water mist system can shield radiated heat from fire and direct cooling of specific building areas. Commercial buildings, such as historic buildings, have an almost immeasurable value. However, their architecture is not designed to accommodate a firefighting system. Conventional sprinkler systems are often out of the question due to a lack of space when installing pipes and the necessary water tanks.
However, these high-pressure water mist systems can provide fire protection with minimal water consumption and desired cooling effect, which can result in the market growth.
For example, in April 2022, FOGTEC Brandschutz GmbH bagged the tender for retrofitting a firefighting system for five locomotives. The locomotives were equipped with a FOGTEC 1000 series system, which is particularly easy to retrofit and integrate. Moreover, the company has also provided its solutions to the Tianjin Qiaoyuan Bridge Culture Museum in China. The water mist system provided by FOGETC protects the Tianjin Qiaoyuan’s area of 8000 m².
Availability of Different Fire Protection Technologies to Hinder Market Growth
The water misting fire suppression system is an efficient extinguishing system that creates fine water droplets with the use of water and air. These water droplets create a mist that covers a large surface to contain and extinguish a fire.
Alternative fire protection technology agents are continually entering the market for end-use firefighting and various high levels of protection, which cannot be secured from water-based fogging systems. This factor results in the lower acceptance of fixed-type fire water-based misting systems and a decrease in demand for high-pressure fire pumps.
Various unique hazard fire protection alternatives, which pose advantages can be categorized as:
Positive Displacement Pump to Hold Dominant Market Share Due to its Wide Acceptance in High-pressure Applications
Based on type, the market is segmented into positive displacement pump and dynamic pump. Positive displacement pumps, such as plunger pumps, are generally used for high-pressure applications in many industries. For instance, plunger pumps are used for sprayers and misters in firefighting, cleaning, and others due to high water discharge at high pressures.
However, these displacement pumps are suitable for small or large flow rates and achieve different pressure levels. Based on this factor, the positive displacement pump segment holds a dominating market share.
Above 150 bar Pressure Range to Dominate Due to its Technical Advantage of Supplying Adequate Water
Based on pressure range, the market is trifurcated into up to 100 bar, 100 to 150, and above 150. The above 150 segment accounted for the dominating share of the market as it helps in supplying adequate pressure for the system supply.
The above 150 bar high-pressure pump for fixed firefighting misting systems are generally found in spaces with high rises or elevated locations. Further, the up to 50 bar high-pressure pump for fixed firefighting misting systems are preferred where large volumes of water misting at continuous intervals are required.
The growing construction activities across the residential & commercial sectors are resulting in the market growth of high-pressure pump for fixed firefighting misting systems with up to 50 pressure range.
