Growing Prominence of Safety and Security Regulations for Evacuation Process by Various Governments

In the past decade, there has been a promising rise in public safety and security management services, ultimately boosting the intelligent evacuation system market and urging the government to manage safety and security regulations to handle hassle-free emergency situations as the loss of life and property is colossal in any disastrous event with high integrity. For instance, regulatory bodies, such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Code of Federal Regulations, NFPA 70 - National Electric Code, NFPA 101 - Life Safety Code, International Fire Code, NFPA 1997 5-9.3, and Standard Fire Prevention Code 1999, are some of the regulations for testing and maintaining ‘Emergency and Exit Lighting’ systems across the globe.

Governments across different countries globally have regulations to handle industrial emergencies and Hazardous Material (HAZMAT)-related incidents. Hence, it is critical to have adequate and practical emergency communication technologies to deliver speedy information to the community to avoid loss of life and property.


Rising Adoption of Innovative Technologies to Make Smart Evacuation Procedures Smooth will Boost Market Growth

Intelligent evacuation systems are designed through the integration of hardware and software components. Adoption of such systems in residential, commercial, and industrial buildings is very important to evacuate humans quickly and safely. Along with digitization, the use of advanced technologies, such as AI, ML, and VR, in the system plays an important role in evacuation operations to detect smoke, fire, and toxic gases in the building. In addition, many residential and small commercial places are installing smart evacuation systems due to their easy functionality and responsive services.

Further, the global market is driven by the rising demand for cloud-based solutions, and increasing awareness of emergency evacuation procedures globally contributes to effective market growth. The market is also driven by an increase in R&D activities by major market players in various regions for a safe and quick evacuation process.


Higher Installation and Maintenance Costs Might Hinder Market Growth

An intelligent evacuation system consists of various components, including gas sensors, temperature/humidity sensors, vibration sensors, and LED alarm, among others. If all these components are purchased separately, then purchasing this system would be very expensive. In addition, the system requires high installation/maintenance costs. Also, it requires data centers or server rooms to store ample amounts of secure data, which may not be afforded by small offices and residential buildings. Thus, the aforementioned factors are likely to hamper the market growth.


By Type Analysis

Growing Adoption of Voice Alarm Systems to Surge Intelligent Evacuation System Demand

Based on type, the market is divided into public address system, voice alarm system, mass notification system, and emergency lighting.

Voice alarm system segment holds the largest revenue share, and it is expected to grow at a prominent CAGR during the forecast period, owing to its capability to convey store-in voice messages electronically or issued directly in an emergency. Also, the system broadcasts automated or semi-automated messages. A voice alarm system has various benefits such as phased evacuation, multilingual digital messaging, selectable pre-recorded messages, background music for ambiance, broadcast of opening/closing times, microphone priority handling, an induction loop, and public information announcements. The system is installed in offices, factories, warehouses, shops, sports stadiums, cinemas, theaters, schools, and public buildings.

Mass notification system segment is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This system is used to deliver notifications (SMS, email, voice message) to individuals or groups of people in emergency evacuation using lists, locations, and visual intelligence for people’s safety in residential, commercial, and industrial buildings. This factor is likely to drive market growth.
