The Flame Detector Market is forecast to reach $1.57 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 4.34% in the period 2019-2023. Growth of the flame detector market is mainly attributed to rising usage of flame detectors in oil refineries and turbines, in order to avoid any untoward fire incidents and to safeguard the workplace, workers and equipment. Rising awareness regarding safety of the workplace and stringent governmental norms regarding explosions and fire safety has resulted in increased adoption of flame detectors in the oil and gas and chemical industries. Regulatory authorities such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in the U.S. and the International Electrochemical Commission (IEC) are increasingly emphasizing on industrial safety, which is propelling growth for the flame detector market.
Flame Detector Market Segment Analysis – By Type
In 2019, IR flame detectors earned revenue amounting to $449.67m, which constituted a share of 33.93% in the flame detector market. Technologically improved IR flame detectors offer several advantages such as faster detection of fuel, higher immunity to false alarms in case of gas ignition outburst, which will further augment growth of the market. Multi IR hydrogen flame detectors have the ability to not only detect flames faster, but also operate in harsh environmental conditions. Since most oil rigs are located in regions with extreme climatic conditions, where malfunctioning of normal flame detectors is known to occur, multi IR hydrogen flame detectors are growing in popularity within this industry.
IR-S type flame detectors are another type of specialized detectors used in coal mines which offer higher detection sensitivity in a dynamic range in low-luminance conditions.
