Water-Mist Fire Suppression Systems to Exceed $400 Million by 2011

The market for water-mist suppression systems – and alternative to standard sprinkler systems for fire control in buildings - will grow at a CAGR of 13% to surpass US$400 million by 2011 according to a report from IMS Research.

The systems were originally developed to combat fires aboard ships, but are gaining appeal and recognition as a viable, green, and versatile fire suppression technology. A key advantage of water-mist systems over conventional sprinklers is that they use significantly less water to control a fire and therefore cause much less damage.

The technology is increasingly being employed in a number of new end-user sectors, including commercial kitchens.

Specially designed sprinkler nozzles divide the water into a mist of small droplets, increasing the surface area available for absorbing heat and cooling down a fire. A second extinguishing effect occurs as the fine droplets evaporate and rapidly expand. This draws air away from the fire depriving it of oxygen.

So far most of the demand for the technology has come from the EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) region (an estimated 70% of the global market in 2007). Demand in North America and Asia has been lower due to fewer local suppliers, the high cost of the systems, and reliance on the traditional sprinkler systems. However, it is predicted that demand will increase as more is done to promote the benefits and successes of the technology in these regions.
