Firefighting foam market has been significantly growing with the increase in accidents related to fire and loss of properties

Firefighting foam is a mass of low-density air bubbles that forms a durable foam blanket above the fuel by adhering to different surfaces. It hinders the contact of fire with oxygen, thus extinguishing flammable liquid by separating the flame from the product surface. The demand of energy is increasing globally due to rising population and industrialization. However, with the increase in energy demand, the fire-related accidents leading to casualties and loss of property has increased. Moreover, the governmental standards and regulations mandate fire safety measures. The increase in research and development regarding fluorine-free firefighting foam influences the market. These are the major driving factors of firefighting foam market.

Within the report, the market is segmented into type, end-use and geography. By type, the market is further divided into aqueous film forming foam (AFFF), alcohol resistant aqueous film forming foam (AR-AFFF), protein foam, synthetic detergent foam (High and Mid expansion foam) and others. On the basis of end-use, the market is segmented into oil and gas, aviation, marine, mining and others. Geographically, the market is sub-segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South & Central America, and Middle East & Africa.

Rise in awareness regarding environmentally safe products is driving the firefighting foam market

The increase in fire accidents especially in oil and gas industry has led to the demand for efficient and effective safety measures such as firefighting foam. Furthermore, the shifting of preferences of customers to environmentally safe, high performance firefighting foams, such as PFAS-free, PFOS-free, and PFOA-free, is anticipated to increase the firefighting foam demand. Thus, firefighting foam manufacturers are developing fluoride free foams, biodegradable foams and fluorinated derivates free foams. Thus, the demand for this type of environmentally safe foams and customer awareness regarding the same is expected to increase the demand for firefighting foam.

Rise in utilization of firefighting foam in oil and gas industry

The oil and gas extraction and processing activities release flammable gases, chemicals and other materials. For instance, the 2005 explosion of BP Texas City refinery led to financial losses of US $ 1.5 billion. Moreover, ENergy-related Severe Accident Database (ENSAD) reveals 674 accidents in refineries and 250 accidents in natural gas networks, worldwide.  The utilization of firefighting foam has increased as a replacement of water, for extinguishing the fire and explosions in the oil and gas industries. Therefore, the increase in occurrence of fire-related accidents in oil and gas industries worldwide is forecasted to increase the demand for firefighting foam market.

Recent strategic developments in firefighting foam market

The firefighting foam market has undergone several significant developments, and a few of these have been mentioned below:

  • In September 2020, Clean Production Action launched the first eco-label certification (GreenScreen Certified Firefighting Foam Standard) for PFAS-free firefighting foam. The foam was created to meet the demand for Aqueous Film Forming Foams (AFFF) to suppress Class B fires.
  • In January 2020, Perimeter solution launched fluorine free dual purpose firefighting foam. The introduced PHOS-CHEK A/B firefighting foam is user friendly and effective for use in a variety of applications including structural and residential fires, general facilities protection, Class A hazards, Class B hazards and foam training exercises.

The firefighting foam market is driven by several players implementing strategic activities such as investments, new launches, mergers & acquisitions, and partnerships. National Foam, Kierr Fire, DIC Corporation, SEPPIC and Perimeter Solutions are among the prominent players operating in the market.
