The global firefighting foam market size reached US$ 901 Million in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 1,167 Million by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.5% during 2023-2028.
Firefighting foam is a stable mass of tiny air-filled bubbles with low density. It creates a durable foam blanket, spreads above the fuel, and adheres to different surfaces for preventing the contact of fire with oxygen. Unlike other extinguishing agents like dry chemical, water, and carbon dioxide (CO2), firefighting foam extinguishes flammable and combustible liquids by cooling and separating the flame from the product surface and suppressing vapors and smothering. As a result, it is widely preferred in areas wherein flammable liquids are transported, processed, stored, and used as energy sources.
Firefighting Foam Market Trends:
Oil and gas facilities have marine vessels, bulk fuel storage tanks, and floating production storage and offloading (FPSO). These facilities are usually equipped with onboard fire suppression systems to minimize fire safety issues and the likelihood of high hazards. This, in confluence with the escalating demand for energy on account of rapid urbanization and increasing reliance on electronics, represents one of the key factors promoting the adoption of firefighting foams worldwide to extinguish the fire quickly and provide an excellent burn back resistance. Moreover, on account of growing environmental concerns, governing agencies of numerous countries are focusing on replacing perfluorinated chemicals used in firefighting foam of marine naval with eco-friendly alternatives. As these chemicals contaminate ground drinking water, the leading market participants are launching fluorine-free foam concentrates with minimum impact on the water. Apart from this, aircraft, airports, and helidecks are faced with the risk of hydrocarbon fires. This, along with the rising volume of passenger traffic across the globe, is positively influencing the application of firefighting foams in aircraft fire protection systems to comply with the strict environmental and safety standards.
