Hazardous Area Equipment Industry to Register approx. 7.2% CAGR During 2017 -2023 :

Pune, India, December 2018/MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future has published a half-cooked research report on the Global Hazardous Area Equipment Industry.

Market Overview:

Hazardous area equipment refers to the devices to be used to safeguard living and financial losses in the hazards environment.  There are numerous dangerous elements scattered around especially in industries such as Oil & Gas, Chemical & Pharmaceutical, Energy & Power, and Mining. These elements can result in accidents, injuries, sickness and sometimes in death itself. Most of the accidents are caused by human error and hence, safeguarding human lives is an utmost priority in any manufacturing unit or industry.

Hazardous area equipment devices are designed to limit the risks for accident or injury at certain points. Developments in global safety standards and technologies have made hazardous area equipment powerful tools to increase production. These safety technologies reduce unscheduled downtime and mean time to repair (MTTR) keeping workers safe and streamlining the lockout and tag-out procedures.

Resultantly, an increasing number of companies are adopting these safety systems. The high adoption of hazardous area equipment systems is a key driving force that defines the growing market landscape of machine safety.  Besides technological advancements that have brought about improvements in safety devices such as safety light curtains with the integrated digital indicators have escalated the market growth globally.

Recognizing the ascending graph of the growth the market is climbing today; Market Research Future (MRFR) in its recently published study report confirms that the global hazardous area equipment market will touch a valuation of approximately 8.48 Bn. USD by 2023, registering about 7.2% CAGR throughout the forecast period (2017 and 2023).

The development of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4.0) is a potential growth opportunity for the market. Besides, the availability of a range of safety devices and components offering futuristic features at competitive prices is fostering the market growth. Simultaneously, the stringent government policies & regulations towards hazardous area encourage the market growth.

On the flip side, factors such as the lack of technical incompetence in workers along with the initial investment associated with the implementation of safety systems are hampering the market growth.  However, well-spread awareness about the importance of the hazardous area equipment and safety measures is estimated to support the market growth over the assessment period.
