Fire sprinkler system is a special sort of active fire-protection system that releases water in the event of a fire. This system is basically required for most commercial & industrial buildings and also some residential structures. Fire sprinkler system pipe material is easy to install, flexible, efficient and reliable to meet the demands of this diverse market. Steel has always been the material of choice for fire sprinklers, although thermoplastic pipes currently dominate the light and civil hazard categories. Steel pipe is appropriate for all fire protection systems. It is easily bent, formed, and fabricated, enabling it to be manufactured into different shapes, sizes, and configurations. The strength and hardness of the steel means that falling, stepping on a steel pipe, or hitting a steel pipe during installation will not cause minor damage, which can be a problem for CPVC. Rigidity is also important as it determines the spacing between the brackets during installation. More flexible materials require more support, which increases the cost of this component during installation.
As per analysis, “Global Steel Fire Sprinkler Pipes Industry Research Report 2021 Segmented by Major Market Players, Types, Applications and Countries Forecast to 2027” the key companies operating in the global steel fire sprinkler pipes market include Borusan Mannesmann, Geberit, Engineered Fire Piping, Arcofire, Wheatland, Tubasys and among others. Companies are working on innovation and product development to expand their customer base. In addition, major companies are pursuing an M&A strategy to increase their market revenues worldwide.
Steel pipe is generally available in black and galvanized. Black pipe is a bare steel pipe without protective coating. Galvanized steel pipes are hot-dip galvanized to obtain a protective coating on the pipe walls. The zinc coating steel pipe acts as a sacrificial-anode to reduce the corrosion of steel pipe. Black steel pipe is most common steel pipe used for sprinkler systems. Since the pipe system is a standing system, the influence of corrosion is minimized. The oxygen in the water evaporates quickly and reduces the risk of corrosion.
Based on type, Global Steel Fire Sprinkler Pipes Market is segmented as welded steel type and seamless steal pipe. In addition, based on application, market can be categorized as commercial, residential and industrial.
The steel fire sprinkler pipes market is driven by increase in investment on infrastructure by companies to reduce the loss of property & life, followed by rise in fire protection expenditure in enterprises & government and increase in trend of automation in commercial buildings. However, steel pipes are more susceptible to corrosion than any other fire sprinkler system pipe material, which is a major hindering factor for market.
Based on regional analysis, the North-America is a leading region in global steel fire sprinkler pipes market owing to growth in industrialization & urbanization across the region. The Europe and Asia-Pacific regions are estimated to witness higher growth rate due to increase in inclination toward automation along with reduced insurance coverage over the forecast period.
