Smoke Detector Market Introduction & Overview

A smoke detector is an automated fire-protection system that automatically detects smoke as the main fire signal and sounds an alarm to the inhabitants in building. Smoke detectors are held in a small round plastic case and located on the ceiling, where they warn against fire hazards. They can be single units powered by batteries or several hardwired (mains-powered) interlinked devices backed up by batteries. For different types of fires, each type of smoke alarm may perform differently. A smoke alarm may use many sensors to warn against a fire, sometimes with a heat detector or carbon monoxide detector. For customer comfort, certain devices are now fitted with voice apps, even remote hush to desensitize the smoke alarm from a noise warning. Properly installed and operated smoke detectors can mitigate the catastrophic impact of house fires, but even greater benefits can be gained by combining these early warning systems with a reduction in hazards from home fires.

The global smoke detector market is driven by factors, such as technological advancements in smoke detectors, rising fire deaths and loss of property, and government initiatives. Also, improvements in the smoke detector system along with IoT (Internet of things) are driving the smoke detector market. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), fire services in the United States have responded to an estimated 1,318,500 accidents in 2018. Such incidents resulted in 3,655 civilian fire deaths; 15,200 civilian fire injuries; and a total property loss calculated at $25.6 billion. In the same year, house fires triggered 2,720 household house fatalities. However, the high cost for the initial installation of smoke detectors and replacement of traditional smoke detectors with smart smoke detectors is likely to hinder the smoke detector market to a certain extent.

The global smoke detector market can be segmented into product type, power source, end-user industry, and region.

Smoke Detector Market By Product Type 

Based on product type, the market can be segmented into photoelectric smoke detector, ionization smoke detector, dual sensor smoke detector, and others. Due to technological advancement, the photoelectric smoke detectors and dual-sensor smoke detectors have decreased the frequency of false alarms and improved response time making them suitable for use. This advancement is likely to positively influence the market growth.

Smoke Detector Market By Power Source

Based on power source the market can be classified into battery-powered, hardwired with battery backup and hardwired without battery backup. The hardwired with battery backup smoke detectors are gaining popularity among the customers as the battery-powered smoke detectors need to be frequently replaced or checked because of exhausted battery. Hardwired alarms that come with battery backup warns of danger when electrical power outages.

Smoke Detector Market By End User Industry

Based on the end-user industry the market can be classified into residential and industrial. The residential segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to government regulations, rising number of fire deaths, and increasing population leading to a rise in residential construction.

Smoke Detector Market By Region

Based on the region, the market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World (ROW). North America dominated the market owing to rising residential construction, number of accidental fires, government regulations to safeguard the building occupants and rising awareness among people. Asia Pacific is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to a rapid urbanization due to increasing population and infrastructural investments. It is expected that the increase in the number of commercial buildings, health centers, educational institutions, and commercial buildings would push the global smoke detector industry.

Smoke Detector Market Prominent Players

Some of the key players operating in the global smoke detector market include Honeywell International Inc., Siemens, Johnson Controls, Bosch Sicherheitssysteme GmbH, United Technologies Corporation, Hochiki Europe, LLC, Schneider Electric, BRK Brands, Inc., XTRALIS, Protec Fire Detection plc, and others.
