Fire protection materials are those materials that are used to ensure the safety of buildings from hazards related to fire. This involves using passive fire protection materials such as fire-resistant boards, sealants, and fire-resistant materials, such as mineral wool and fireproof coatings, or may include active fire protection materials such as fire extinguishing foams, chemicals, water, and sprays. When choosing a material that protects from fire, multiple factors are considered, such as its load-bearing capabilities, thermal conductivity, and tendency towards decay.
There is a growing demand for fire protection materials owing to stringent building codes & fire safety policies and various official standards established to overlook and ensure product effectiveness in the Australian region. This is expected to drive the fire protection materials over forecasted years. Moreover, the increasing awareness regarding protection from fire-related accidents among consumers is also expected to drive the growth of fire protection materials.
Australia Fire Protection Materials Market Dynamics
- Escalating application scope of fire protection materials in various industries
Advanced fire protection materials are used in this vertical to avoid fire accidents. Highly efficient fire detection and prevention systems are required in this sector to prevent accidents. Clean agent fire suppression systems, dry chemical fire suppression materials, and water and foam sprinklers are extensively used in the mining sector.
Gas-based suppression systems containing CO2, Novec, and Inert gases and sprinkler systems are also used in the oil & gas sector. Additionally, rising applications of fire protection materials in mining vehicles to suppress fire by enhancing firefighting operation is also helping in the market growth.
- Imposition of favorable government guidelines and fire safety standards
Commercial construction is one of the growing application segments in the fire protection materials market, and the government has implemented strict safety regulations and strict building codes in the construction of offices, shopping centers, malls, hospitals, colleges, schools, universities, and hotels due to a large number of people in these buildings. Therefore, enforcement of these fire regulations and legislations will significantly increase awareness among the consumers, which may help to boost the demand for fire protection materials in the Australia fire protection materials market.
- Growing building and construction activities due to rapid growth in population
The engineering of a safety-proof structure is needed to ensure the stability of the structure and make fire and explosion risks manageable. Furthermore, the increase in the number of fire accidents, leading to the loss of life and valuable assets, has made various construction companies more vigilant, compelling them to employ fire protection measures for safety. This, in turn, is expected to boost the Australian fire protection materials market.
- Rapid technological advancements in fire protection systems and products
The advances that have occurred in improving the fire retardancy of specific materials have occurred, ranging from developments in phosphorus and halogen-free flame retardants to the use of nanocomposites as novel flame retardant systems. Thus, rapid technological advances in materials and fire protection systems may provide lucrative opportunities for the growth and development of the Australian fire protection materials market.
- Increasing utilization of safety codes in buildings for occupants and users
In addition, the Australian NCC also promotes low-combustible building materials and safe exit routes for occupants in well-designed fire compartments within buildings. All these specifications help set up the Fire resistance Level (FRL) of the buildings, ensuring structural adequacy, integrity, and proper insulation on the premises.
Thus, the increasing utilization and adoption of safety codes and protocols in various residential and commercial buildings for occupants and users are expected to offer growth opportunities to investors and players operating in the Australia fire protection materials market.
- Fluctuations in the price of raw materials
Higher raw material prices increase production costs at the company level. This, in turn, affects the consumers as the finished products cost more to the consumers, therefore, limiting their demand as consumers either stop the consumption of such costly products and materials or start looking for alternatives available in the market.
In addition, the increase in the price of various raw materials such as steel, concrete, and glass has directly and negatively affected the realty market, which may hinder the growth of the Australia fire protection materials market. Therefore, fast fluctuating and increasing raw material prices are expected to hinder the market's growth.
- Integration of user interfaces with fire protection solutions
Proper coordination between the mechanical, electrical, fire protection, and installing contractors is a must for the proper functioning of the fire control systems. In addition, with the integration of all security and fire systems in one place, the user interface becomes too confusing and complex to use.
The first time many operators interact with the control panel of this user interface is in times of uncertainty or an emergency. The more complex the user interface is, the more difficult its operation. Complex menu systems can easily lead to confusion, inciting fear and paralyzing the user due to a lack of guidance or panel intuition. Therefore, integration of the user interface with the fire protection system and materials is not an easy task and may hinder the growth of the Australia fire protection materials market.
- Low adoption rate among the potential end-users due to lack of awareness
However, the Australian population lacks in the basic areas of fire safety awareness, including the nature of fire, the causes of fire, the behavior of fire, and fire safety management. With the low awareness among the users of fire protection materials, people usually prefer cheap materials that do not provide protection from fire or are not suitable to contain the fire in case of any accidents. This is anticipated to be a challenging problem for the growth of the Australia fire protection market.
- High installation and maintenance cost
In addition, installing various fire protection systems adds up to the cost of the overall budget of a building. For example, installing an automatic water sprinkler system requires additional equipment, pipework, valve sets, booster pumps, and water storage, which are not pocket-friendly for all occupants or users. Moreover, the use of more heavy fire protection materials in a building also increases the load on the beam of the building, which negatively affects the building's load-bearing capacity, making it less stable over a longer time. Therefore, the disadvantage of the high costs of installation and maintenance of fire protection materials, products, and systems in a building will act as a challenge to the growth of the Australia fire protection market.
- In March 2022, PPG Industries, Inc. launched their new PPG AMERLOCK 600 multipurpose epoxy coating for applications requiring maximum versatility. This newly launched range of coatings are highly built, polyamide-cured coating that combines a broad application thickness range with fast dry times and a one-year recoat window.
