Smoke detector is a sensor based device which senses smoke and provides an indication of possible fires, hence providing overall security to the residential and commercial venues and people. In case of residential and commercial security, smoke detectors issue a signal directed to a fire alarm control panel, while in household smoke detectors most commonly known as smoke alarm furnishes visual or audible alarm signals from the smoke sensing object itself. A smoke detector refers to a device which is typically an indicator of fire and senses smoke. Commercial smoke security devices issue an indication or a signal to the fire alarm control panel as a component of the overall fire alarm system, whereas in household based smoke detectors they typically issue a local audible or visual alarm through the detector. Smoke detectors usually consist of two key components namely sensor which helps in sensing any smoke within the surroundings as well as loud electric horn which helps in creating loud sound within the ambiances making the people conscious about a certain fire. The total amount of current required to make a solo smoke detector function is roughly a 9-volt battery or a 120-volt house current. Also, smoke detectors are positioned in a disk-shaped plastic box or arena ranging about 150 millimeters in diameter as well as 25 millimeters in thickness.
Some of the key factors driving the global smoke detectors market include Increase in deaths and injuries owing to rising situations of fire in the residential and commercial buildings. This is one of the key factors driving the global smoke detector market across the globe. In addition, increasing demand for smoke detectors especially from the urban population as well as government and private sectors across the globe for investing in relatively better and safer infrastructure facilities is another major factor fueling the growth of the global smoke detectors market. Also, construction of commercial and residential buildings along with increasing number of educational institutes and healthcare centers is further leading to the increase in demand for adequate fire security solutions across the globe. Increasing demand for smoke detector solutions especially from commercial buildings and rapid urbanization especially in the developing economies across the globe is another major aspect bolstering the growth of the global smoke detector market. Moreover. the global smoke detectors market is rapidly growing owing to an increase in the number of residential construction activities as well as rising demand for replacement of smoke detectors are some other major factors driving the global smoke detectors market.
The global smoke detectors market can be divided based on power source, product type, service, end-use industry and region. By power source, the global smoke detectors market can be divided into hardwired with battery backup, battery powered, and hardwired without battery backup. By product type, the global smoke detectors market can be divided into ionization smoke detector, photoelectric smoke detector, dual sensor smoke detector and others. On the basis of service, the global smoke detectors market can be bifurcated into installation & design services, engineering services, maintenance services, managed services and others. Based on end-use industry, the global smoke detectors market can be bifurcated into commercial, residential, oil, gas & mining, transportation & logistics, telecommunication, manufacturing and others.
Based on region, the global smoke detectors market can be divided into North America, Latin America, Europe, Middle East & Africa and Asia Pacific. The robust demand in Asia-Pacific is expected to be the main driving factor for the growth of the global smoke detectors market. China is analyzed to lead the demand for smoke detector owing to increased industrial production in the past half a decade. It is also the leading consumer of smoke detectors in the world. The markets in other emerging economies such as Brazil and India are also projected to grow rapidly. Some of the major players are Honeywell, NEC Corporation, Hochiki America, Siemens, UTC, Tyco, Hitachi, and Johnson Control among others.
