Armoured Vehicle Fire Expression Systems Market Overview:

Armored Vehicle Fire Suppression Systems Market is expected to grow USD 1.981 Trillion at a CAGR 6.4% by 2020-2030

Government agencies and regulatory bodies have set criteria for products like fire prevention systems to contain fire outbreaks. Flame detectors and smoke control equipment are included in this system to help in the event of a fire. Sprinkler systems and alarm valves are the most popular fire safety systems. Several technologies have been developed to detect and react to fire smoke or flame. As opposed to the conventional heat or smoke devices employed in the past, the introduction of fire prevention systems has assisted in reacting to fires swiftly and correctly. Additionally, installing fire sensors and detectors in business buildings is a perfect and reasonably priced safety solution.

There is little room for soldier body mobility in the crew compartment of armoured combat vehicles, such as infantry fighting vehicles. This worsens a dangerous scenario in which the passengers risk suffering fatal fire burns or suffocating from smoke inhalation. Most current fire suppression systems are solid-based; however, recent technological breakthroughs have led to the development of gas-based armoured vehicle fire suppression systems that are less corrosive and capable of extreme oxygen deprivation.

Depending on the scenarios the platform is anticipated to function in, the different configurations call for installing a multifaceted fire suppression system. Because of this, it is predicted that over the forecast period, there will be a growth in the need for fire suppression systems and components for line fit and retrofit operations.

COVID-19 Analysis

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global armored vehicle fire suppression systems market has been low to moderate, depending upon the economy. In 2020, the military revenues and expenditures of major economies around the world increased even after the contraction of GDP due to the COVID pandemic and its impact on the global economic growth.

According to Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), the top five largest military spenders―the US, China, India, Russia, and the UK―alone accounted for 62% of estimated global military expenditure in 2020. Some countries, including South Korea, and Chile, have reallocated a portion of their military budget towards pandemic response, while some, including Russia and Brazil, decided to continue with military budget cuts. Overall, the impact of the pandemic has been nearly insignificant on military spendingand on the demand for armored vehicle fire suppression systems.

Market Dynamics


Rising Defense Expenditure

Over the last decade, the world has witnessed robust growth in capital expenditure from the governments to bolster their military strength. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic shock to the global GDP growth, the defense budgets and revenues are expected to remain stable, in general, for defense contractors during the forecast period. Much of this can be attributed to the rising geopolitical tensions which make the military programs critical to the national defense. According to SIPRI, the global military expenditure increased to USD 1,981 billion in 2020, an increment of 2.6% from 2019. During the same period, the global GDP decreased by 4.2%, owing primarily to the economic shocks of the pandemic. Thus, the military burden, calculated as military expenditure as a share of GDP, witnessed an increase of 0.2%, reaching a global average of 2.4% in 2020. The 0.2% increment in military expenditure was the largest year-on-year military burden increment since 2009’s global economic crisis.

The military expenditure of the US alone accounted for USD 778 billion in 2020, marking a rise of 4.4% over 2019 and adominant share of 39.27% in the global military spending in 2020.Significant investment in R&D and increased spending in long-term projects, including modernization of US nuclear arsenal and procurement of large-scale arms. With an estimated military expenditure of USD 252 billion in 2020, China is the second-largest military spender. Despite the pandemic shock to the GDP growth, most countries increased their military spending in 2020. Amidst the rising geopolitical tensions and military spending towards R&D, the major economies are expected to continue increasing their military spending, thereby driving the growth of the global armored vehicle fire suppression systems market during the forecast period.


Increasing Demand for Cutting-Edge Fire Detection and Suppression System Actuation Technology

Over the recent years, the demand for advanced fire detection and actuation system has risen in the global armored vehicle suppression systems market.

With innovations& advancements in electronics and heavy military spending, the demand for cutting-edge actuation technology offers lucrative opportunities for the players in the global armored vehicle fire suppression systems market.


Environmental Concerns Posed by Fire Suppression Agents Used in the Fire Suppression Systems

Fire suppression systems are essential to military vehicles as they carry explosives and flammable fluids, which can cause considerable damage and fatalities in accidents or combats. The fire suppression systems used in these armored military vehicles use fire suppression chemical compounds or agents to suppress fire caused during an accident/combat. Most of these suppression agents are not environment-friendly. These suppression agents usually have high global warming potential (GWP) but offer advantages, such as high fire suppression efficiency, compact storage, and high compatibility with materials.Thus, environmental concerns posed by fire suppression agents are expected to restrict the growth of the armored vehicle fire suppression systems marketduring the study period.

However, with the emergence of clean agent fire suppression systems, environmental concerns can be significantly resolved. These clean agent fire suppression systems are seen as long-term replacements of the high GWP chemical suppression agents.
