The rising awareness regarding fire safety coupled with the technological advancements on account of the rising R&D investments is anticipated to drive the global fire stopping materials market growth. Furthermore, the growing developments by key industry players globally are anticipated to drive the demand for these materials. For instance, in July 2020, Rex Materials Group, one of the leading manufacturers of thermal components, acquired Unifrax, a key provider of specialty materials that are focused on flames stopping applications.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the fire-stopping materials market. This is due to the imposition of lockdowns due to the COVID-19 outbreak. As the lockdowns were imposed, there was a halt in the production and a huge delay in various construction projects globally. The lockdowns almost halted transport activities which in turn has downturned the size of the industry. Furthermore, the spread of the virus has had a negative impact on most of the end-user industries of the flames-stopping materials, thus declining their demand. The outbreak has also impacted the supply chain of the industry, making the cost of raw materials highly volatile, in turn hindering the growth of the fire stopping materials market. However, as the end-user industries are recovering from the outbreak and the rising number of construction projects is anticipated to drive the industry growth.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
The wide application of various flame-stopping materials across different end-user industries such as building & construction, oil & gas, transportation, and others is one of the primary driving factors for the global fire stopping materials market. The fast adoption of advanced fireproof materials across the commercial sector, along with the implementation of stringent fire safety policies by governments across nations, is expected to boost the demand for the product. For instance, NBC (National Building Code of India), is determining various specifications such as fire zones, fire resistance type for both structural and non-structural components, and others for new construction.

Additionally, the rising focus of the aerospace and automotive industry towards these-stopping materials is expected to provide huge industry growth opportunities. Nowadays, the automotive industry is shifting its focus towards the installation of fire-stopping materials in heavy-duty & passenger vehicles. For instance, in February 2021, Sika Automotive announced a new flame stopping coating for EV (electric vehicle) battery systems in order to improve fire safety.

Insight by Application

Commercial segment accounted for the largest share in the global fire stopping materials market. The rising demand for fire stopping, along with the growing focus on safety, are a few of the major factors driving the growth of the segment. Further, the rising capital expenditure on commercial infrastructures such as offices, educational institutions, hospitals, and others is expected to drive the demand for these-stopping materials globally. The progression of the retail industry is playing a vital role in the expansion of commercial spaces, thus having a positive impact on the growth of the segment. The growing implementation of safety regulations in commercial spaces is further anticipated to provide huge growth opportunities to the segment.

However, the industrial segment accounts for a significant share in the overall industry. This can be acknowledged to factors, including rapid industrialization across developed and developing nations globally, growing focus toward safety across production plants of various industries, among others. Further, the implementation of stringent safety policies across industrial plants on account of a rising number of incidents due to fire is expected to drive the growth of the segment.

Insight by Industry

The building & construction segment is recorded with the largest shares in 2020 and is expected to lead the industry in the forecasting years. The lucrative growth in the construction industry globally is the major factor driving the growth of the segment. Further, according to GCP (Global Construction Perspectives) and oxford economics, the global construction market is estimated to grow to over USD 8 trillion by 2030, primarily driven by US, India, and China. This global growth in construction volume is anticipated to offer huge growth opportunities to this segment. Further, the improving attitude for the stringent safety codes & policies implemented by government authorities is anticipated to drive the growth of the segment.

The oil & gas segment is also projected to experience considerable growth across the market. This growth can be attributed to the rise in oil and gas drilling activities across various nations, including the US and Saudi Arabia. The rising prices of crude oil are leading to the increase in the exploration of shale resources. For instance, in March 2019, Exxon Mobil has started construction in its refinery at Beaumont in order to make it the largest facility in the US. Further, the increase in the demand for these-stopping materials from various oil & gas drilling activities is anticipated to drive the growth of the segment.

Geographic Overview

Geographically, North America is accounted largest revenue share in the global market in 2021 and is likely to dominate the market over the upcoming scenario. This is due to the rising demand for flame-stopping material in the new and existing infrastructure across the region. Further, the lucrative growth in the construction sector, especially in the number of skyscrapers in major cities, is anticipated to provide huge growth opportunities to the market in the region.

The growing focus towards building safety and the implementation of stringent building policies and codes is further estimated to drive the growth of the market in North America.
