According to a recent study from market research firm Graphical Research, the North America passive fire proofing system market forecast is expected to register a significant growth by 2027, as the demand for high-quality and reliable fire protection infrastructure is growing at a robust rate. Both active and passive fire proofing systems are immensely important to keep the buildings and occupants safe from fire accidents.

Reputed companies are involved in the production of fire-resistant doors, walls & floors, and other structural components to prevent smoke and other toxic gases from spreading, thereby significantly reducing the chances of death.

North America passive fire proofing system market share is projected to be valued at more than $9 billion by 2027. Fire-resistant glasses held nearly 12% share in the regional industry in 2020. These glasses are widely used in the building’s openings and have several beneficial features.

These include efficient temperature radiation, durability, low maintenance, and high safety quality. The glasses have high integrity and can prevent heat transmission to the non-fireplaces, thereby augmenting their adoption.

In addition to fireproof glasses, fire & smoke dampers are commonly used in passive fire protection systems. Fire dampers help prevent the spread of flames across barriers and are highly used in places that have heat-sensitive devices installed, which may melt when exposed to extreme heat.

Structural fire protection application occupied over 25% share in North America passive fire proofing system market in 2020. A wide range of materials, such as plasters, fireproof coatings, sprays, cladding, and cementitious products are utilised to provide strong protection to the structural parts of a building, including columns and beams.

Fire compartmentation is one of the most important steps taken to prevent fire from spreading in other places. Fire-rated walls and floors shield the evacuation routes from smoke and fire migration. Since these building parts are structurally sturdy, they are likely to stay strong even during high temperatures.

Commercial end-users may hold a share worth $5.5 billion in North America passive fire proofing system market by 2027 as the regional construction sector is growing at a notable rate. Some of the major factors contributing to this growth are rising urbanisation, economic developments, and increasing levels of income.

Regulatory bodies, such as the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the U.S. government are taking appropriate steps to ensure that companies adopt the strict rules and standards to reduce the number of fire accidents in the construction sector.

Residential and institutional areas in North America are likely to heavily adopt passive fire proofing systems as the need to have reliable fire protection equipment is growing at a strong rate among citizens. Even though the installation cost of these systems is high for many consumers, the rising income levels, urbanisation, and the demand for an advanced fire proofing infrastructure among end-users will augment the deployment of passive fire proofing units in the region.

North America passive fire proofing system market outlook will continue to be progressive as leading organisations, including Saint-Gobain S.A., Assa Abloy AB, UK Performance Doorsets Ltd., Chase Industries, Inc., Mesker Openings Group, and Halton Group, among many others are involved in the production of passive fire proofing systems for residential, institutional, and commercial end-users.

Passive fire protection products, such as fire dampers, fire-resistant walls, floors & glasses, fire doors, stops, and structural steel protection items will find high application in structural fire protection, fire stopping materials, compartmentation, and open protection.
