Dry powder, carbon dioxide, and water are amongst the well-known fire extinguishing agents employed in aircraft protection systems. Their role is vital in terms of replacing air with inert gas so that combustion could be avoided. Aircraft fire detection and protection systems also perform the function of tracking any condition leading to fire within the aircraft. Appropriate signals (visual/audio) are given by these systems to alarm devices through sensors.
Moreover, stern laws and regulations are being implemented all over the world for ensuring proper fixation of aircraft fire detection and protection systems. For instance – the US FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) has been at the forefront herein. The other regulatory bodies have also followed suit. This trend is expected to give an impetus to market growth in the upcoming period.
The latest development on this count is presence of fire extinguishing salons in these systems. These agents get discharged as vapors in aircraft environment. Their popularity could be attributed to their working principle. In other words, the principle of intrusion on the chain responses accelerating spreading of fire makes them the most sought-after fire extinguishers. Increase in applications of halons is another factor catalyzing the aircraft fire detection and protection systems market.
Aircraft fire detection and protection systems are mounted on pretty sensitive locations (around the aircraft engines). As such, they need to be handled with utmost care. The sensing elements are small-sized in comparison with the load they need to handle. The probability of sensing elements getting damaged at the time of maintenance procedures can’t be ruled out. This factor may compel airlines to abstain from using sensing elements, especially in low cost carriers as that would add to the overheads. This could, in turn, pose a challenge to the market.
Also, the outbreak of Covid-19 has thrown the aircraft industry out of gear since Mar 2020. There has been annulment of flights since then. The scenario hasn’t changed much, and is expected to continue till the end of the year 2020. However, the year 2021 is likely to bring in new hopes as the industry is expected to get back to normalcy. Though guidelines regarding the number of passengers to be carried, hygiene, social distancing – everything would come in as a “new” normal, aircraft fire detection and protection systems would leave no stone unturned in finding their way.
Aircraft Fire Detection and Protection Systems Market: Competitive Analysis
Region-wise, the aircraft fire detection and protection systems market consists of North America (Canada, US), Western Europe (Spain, UK, France, Italy, Germany), Latin America (Brazil, Mexico), Japan, Asia-Pacific (New Zealand, Australia, ASEAN, India, China), Eastern Europe (Russia, Poland), MEA (Northern Africa, South Africa, GCC Countries).
The key players in the aircraft fire detection and protection systems market include UTC Aerospace Systems, Meggitt PLC, Ventura Aerospace Inc., Gielle Industries, Advanced Aircraft Extinguishers, Fire System Services, Vulcan Fire Systems, Inc., The Chemours Company, and Janus Fire Systems, Inc.
The market players are on to the “offbeat designing” spree to have gain a competitive edge. For instance – players like Janus Fire Systems do utilize their “Janus Design Suite” flow calculation software for performing “Clean Agent and Carbon Dioxide Fire Suppression System’ hydraulic flow calculations.
Players also look forward to come up with maintenance-free pneumatic detectors. Meggitt’s detectors are reported to be immune on the count of false alarms and are maintenance-free.
