The global smoke detector market is valued at USD 1,904.4 million in 2018 and is estimated to reach a value of USD 3,380.8 million by 2026 at a CAGR of 7.5% during the forecast period. The North America dominated the global smoke detector market with a share of 30.90% in 2018.

Smoke detectors are designed to identify a fire while in its smoldering or inception flame stages. These detectors are able to sense the fire based on the type, density, and volume of smoke produced during fire accidents.  Also, stringent government standards imposed on commercial, residential, and industrial constructions are compelling construction vendors to align the projects with fire and safety norms, thus further propelling the Smoke Detector Market growth. In addition to this, widening smart city projects, emergent technology in detectors, and increasing research & development spending by key players are fueling the progress of the market. For instance, in July 2018, a European company, Hochiki Europe, introduced FIREscape+, an innovative system integrated with multi-functionalities including fire detection and emergency lighting.

Integration of Advanced Technologies in Smoke Detectors to Contribute to Market Growth

The growing trend of smart devices has transformed the traditional range of products. Technologies including Artificial Intelligence (AI), robotic process automation (RPA), Machine Learning (ML), Internet of Things (IoT), etc. integrated with smoke detectors have enhanced security solutions systems. They offer advanced risk monitoring, help customers to prevent false alarms, and allow taking necessary action in critical situations. Also, IoT-based smoke detectors notify the user for regular maintenance and need for replacement of existing accessories or batteries. Moreover, construction of smart cities and industrial automation are creating a potential impact on the market trends for the Smoke Detector.


Imposition of Stringent Government Norms to Trigger the Market

Rising count of fire accidents across various settings is becoming a major concern for governmental bodies. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) based in The United States, the fire loss report states that the home fires fell by 51%, from 734,000 in 1980 to 363,000, in 2018. One of the main reasons for this fall is the mandatory inclusion of fire safety systems. Furthermore, some other standards held on various applications are driving the market demand. For instance, the National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code and NFPA 72 were recently mandated for residential spaces having a floor size greater than 1,000 square feet.


Range Limits of Smoke Detectors to Inhibit Market Growth

The capability of a smoke detector in sensing a fire is limited to a specific distance. For instance, if the fire develops on the first floor of the building, the detectors may not alert the second floor of the building. This may increase the density of the fire flames, resulting in accidents. This leads to installing these detectors at every level of building, resulting in higher expenditures. Similarly, these detectors sometimes may not sense a fire developing on the other side of the closed door. In such cases, detectors have to be placed on both sides of the door.

Photoelectric Segment to Show Higher Growth Rate in the Coming Years

On the basis of technology type, the market is divided into photoelectric, dual sensor, ionization, and others.

The photoelectric segment is expected to grow at a higher rate in the forecast period owing to its characteristics of sudden sensing and responds an average of 15 to 50 minutes faster to fires in their early smoldering stage. Also, it quickens the triggering of the alarm once the smoke enters the detector chambers. Furthermore, government initiatives to invest in infrastructure development are further expected to flourish in this Market.

Ionization and dual sensor segments are expected to grow at a considerable rate in the coming years owing to their easy functionalities, capability of early detecting fire fumes, etc. Also, manufacturers are focusing on upgrading the existing fire protection technologies and introducing dual sensor smoke detectors.

By Application Analysis

Residential Segment to Grow Significantly in the Forecast Period

Based on application, the market is further segregated into commercial, industrial, and residential.

The residential segment is expected to grow significantly in the future owing to the increasing number of accidents occurring at residential places, rising urbanization, and increasing population. Moreover, smoke detector vendors are focusing on introducing products explicitly for residential applications. For instance, in March 2017, Honeywell International Inc. came up with a dual sensor detector for residential application, which is monitored professionally and integrated wireless combination carbon monoxide (CO).

Commercial and industrial segments are anticipated to exhibit a considerable growth rate in the coming years with rising smart city projects, growing trends of smart factories, and Industry 4.0 and industrial automation. Also, increasing Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is also propelling commercial projects and further fueling the market revenue.
