Are Mist Fire Sprinkler Systems Better Than Conventional Sprinklers?


Arizton’s recent market research report on the automatic fire sprinkler market provides a comprehensive industry study, competitive analysis, and trend forecasts. The research study segments the market into product types (wet sprinklers, dry sprinklers, deluge sprinklers, pre-action sprinklers, and others), end-users (commercial, industrial, residential, educational institutions, and government), technology (non-smart and smart), and geography (APAC, Europe, North America, Latin America, and MEA).

The global automatic fire sprinkler systems market is likely to reach values of around $15 billion by 2024, growing at a CAGR of more than 9% during 2018–2024.

Plumis’ Automist Smartscan is a smart sprinkler system for the residential sector. It houses a mobile infrared sensor that continuously scans the room to identify the hottest point, and then a slit in the unit releases a mist on the detection of fire. The use of mist is very effective in suppressing fire; the system also consumes less water than a traditional sprinkler system.

The leading three drivers and trends driving the automatic fire sprinkler market are discussed below:

Rising Growth of Home Automation

The increasing need for convenience, the penetration of IoT, and strong growth of mobile network infrastructure has fueled the adoption of home automation systems. In 2018, more than 46 million smart home devices were installed in the US. This has enabled manufacturers to offer new and improved smart home technologies that are interconnected and easy to control. Vendors are also investing in R&D activities to make connected devices smarter by offering Artificial Intelligence (AI) integration in the form of smart digital assistants. In 2018, Amazon acquired Ring, which is a known connected doorbells and cameras manufacturer. Rapid advancements in AI technologies are likely to dominate market growth of automatic fire sprinkler systems in the next 3−5 years.

Increasing Deaths due to Fire Accidents

According to the WHO, burns are a global public health challenge, accounting for more than 180,000 deaths annually. A majority of these accidents occur in low- and middle-income countries as they lack awareness and low usage of fire safety equipment such as smoke detectors, fire alarms, sprinklers, and fire management systems. The rapid industrialization has put more pressure on industries to adopt fire safety equipment. The growth of the commercial realty sector is also increasing the demand for fire safety equipment. However, the move toward digitization, the increase in fire safety awareness, and the introduction of stringent fire safety regulations are likely to have a positive effect on the global automatic fire sprinkler systems market during the forecast period.

Growing Usage of Mist Fire Sprinkler Systems

Wet pipe automatic sprinklers are the most popular fire protection systems. However, mist sprinkler systems are seen as the successor of water-based sprinklers. The installation of mist sprinklers in the US is governed by NFPA 750 that was created in 1996. The NFPA 750 indicates that the objective of these systems is to control fire through the reduction in thermal exposure, i.e., to suppress fire by decreasing the heat release rate. Mist sprinkler systems not only suppresses the fire but also reduces structural damages caused by water. The water damage is so low that these systems are widely adopted in industries dealing with high-value items. The zoned application is a new design of the mist system that has several distinct suppression zones. It is preferred in places with special hazards or high-value items. The growing usage of mist sprinkler systems is likely to drive the market for automatic fire sprinkler systems market.

Johnson Controls, Honeywell International, Siemens, and United Technologies are the major players in the automatic fire sprinkler market.
