Smart Smoke Detector Market Overview


The global smart smoke detector market growth rate is projected to be 8.2% for the time period that this report covers. The value for the global smart smoke detector market was USD 971 million four years ago. It should be USD 1,533 million by 2023.


Global smart smoke detectors have become popular in recent years because they monitor the outside air (in the outside environment) for smoke particles which can and often are released as a result of various industrial activities. These particulates are dangerous because they are often toxic. Even when they are not toxic, they can cause severe breathing and other respiratory problems in people, especially in children.


Smart Smoke Detectors Have Four Parts:



  • Sensors

  • A processing unit

  • Communication system

  • Alarm system


It’s the sensors that check the outside air for smoke particulates and their concentration in a particular unit of air. These sensors then send this information to the processing unit which analyzes and checks it (the information) for any possible mishaps that can occur in the present and in the near and long-term future.


Plant managers can obtain this information and the analysis through their smart mobile devices. This information is relayed to these devices through the latest in WIFI and Bluetooth technologies.


Smart Smoke Detector Market COVID-19 Analysis


COVID-19 has been a real game-changer in terms of the world order. It really is ushering in the new world order. The fact that it has caused long-term health issues and problems in many of the people who have contracted it and made a full recovery, and the fact that it has caused more than a few deaths around the world has profoundly changed the psyche of the human species as well as its genetic makeup.


COVID-19 may belong to the coronavirus family of viruses. That said, it’s much more dangerous and deadly than most of its cousins which happen to be the viruses that cause the flu and the common cold. It was this reality about COVID-19 that made governments around the world realize early on that they could and should not take it lightly. That’s why they enacted global quarantines and lockdowns during the spring of last year. These were temporary since they were not really effective at doing what they were intended to do which was to stop the spread of the virus.


Many businesses were affected by these quarantines and lockdowns in negative ways. Most traditional businesses were forced to either dramatically scale production back or shut down temporarily. Some businesses even went bankrupt and were forced to close their doors for good.


The companies in the global smart smoke detector market were some of the few that actually benefitted from the COVID-19 inspired quarantines and lockdowns. Demand for these detectors skyrocketed as businesses and governments around the world attempted to reduce outdoor pollution. It’s no secret that pollution weakens the immune system. People with a weakened immune system are more vulnerable to viruses like COVID-19


Smart Smoke Detector Market Dynamics



  • Drivers


What’s been the main smart smoke detector market growth driver has been the increased concern that businesses owners and governments have in regard to the safety of their workers in factories and workplaces. They don’t want these workers to be exposed to smoke that can result from industrial fires.


There has been an unfortunate increase in the number of fatalities in recent years in commercial and/or industrial buildings. The main culprit has been greater industrial activity in developing nations which tend to have standards that are laxer and rarely enforced.


People around the world want to live in smart buildings. They want these buildings to be equipped with the latest in fire safety and fire detection equipment because they perceive that these things can and do make the buildings safer. This has been another factor that has been driving smart smoke detector market growth in recent years.



  • Opportunities


More and more people and industrial owners are using the Internet of Things (IoT) and connected technologies. The companies in the smart smoke detector market will see many more opportunities as these two things take off around the world.



  • Restraints


A factor that’s restraining smart smoke detector market growth is the fact that smart detectors cost lots of money. They are also very expensive to use. Therefore, only a limited number of people and companies around the world can currently afford to use them.



  • Challenges


Perhaps the greatest challenge that companies in the global smart smoke detector market will face lies in attempting to develop more technologically advanced versions of these devices while keeping their retail prices in the ranges that the global masses can afford.



  • Technology analysis


Roost Inc is a major American player in the global smart smoke detector market. It got to its current position as an industry leader by investing heavily in research and development. Thus, the company was able to develop and market newer generations of more technologically sophisticated and advanced smart smoke detectors. It was also able to justify selling these at higher price points. Thus, the company was able to create a sustainable competitive advantage.

Smart Smoke Detector Market Regions Analysis


The global smart smoke detector market can be grouped into the following regions:



  • North America

  • The European Union

  • Asia-Pacific

  • The rest of the world


The global smart smoke detector market growth rate is expected to be substantial for the five years spanning 2018 and 2023.


The North American region is expected to enjoy the largest smart smoke detector market share for the time period that this report covers. There are many reasons for this. One of these is the fact that there has been an increase in the risk and incidence of fire hazards, especially in America. The infrastructure in the United States of America is relatively well developed. This, when combined with the fact that the Internet of Things is becoming much more popular in this nation has led to an increase in demand for smart smoke detectors in commercial and industrial buildings. Even many homeowners want to use smart smoke detectors.


The European Union enjoys the second-largest smart smoke detector market share for the time period that this report covers. There is one restraining factor, and this is largely what is giving the European Union second place in the smart smoke detector market. That is the fact that Europeans, by and large, don’t want to use smart solutions.


The Asia-Pacific region is expected to enjoy the highest smart smoke detector market growth rate for the time period that this report covers. The reason is that this region is home to some of the world’s fastest-growing economies. Also, these countries tend to be first-adapters in terms of technological advances. This is especially true of India, China, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore.


Smart cities are also mushrooming in the Asia-Pacific region. This is creating tremendous demand for smart smoke detectors and sensors.


The Middle East (especially the UAE) is expected to have the highest market value for the global smart smoke detector market for the time period that this report covers. The reason for this is that the rest of the world (including Latin America and Africa) is investing heavily in the technologies that support the Internet, the Internet of Things, and Smart cities. All of this is creating more demand for smart smoke detectors.


Smart Smoke Detector Market Competitive landscape


The global smart smoke detector market is highly competitive. The market is fragmented because it’s lucrative, has a high CAGR, and has relatively few barriers to entry. Therefore, many larger companies with bigger treasuries are finding that it’s easy to enter the market.


Companies are finding that they must invest heavily in research and development if they want to be able to continue to develop and market better smart smoke detectors that also happen to be technologically advanced.
