Passive Fire Protection is increasing; are you?
Passive Fire Protection is a field in which I have worked for the past eight years, both in terms of surveying and compliance. I have watched the rapid expansion of this market as a result of regulatory changes and a better understanding of its significance through both old and new projects.
My findings from surveys conducted across the globe and inspections of PFP indicate that there are still fundamentals that demand significant growth.
Growth in the market
Rapid urbanisation and industrialisation in the Asia-Pacific region, as well as a growing construction industry, would be the primary drivers of the passive fire protection market’s expansion. In the coming years, stringent government regulations mandating the installation of passive fire protection systems in buildings in the region are expected to further boost demand for passive fire protection.
Between 2022 and 2028, the size of the passive fire protection market is projected to increase significantly.
Based on applications, the sector of warehousing is expected to experience the greatest growth due to the rising demand for well-organised inventory management. Concurrently, the recent increase in R&D activities to reinforce non-combustible products has compelled many end-user industries, such as oil and gas, transportation, manufacturing, and warehousing, to employ these materials to reduce fire incidences.
The market for passive fire protection is expanding in Asia, but companies are not yet able to supply adequate training, support, and installation practises to their teams. This is essential for ensuring that the correct passive fire protection methods and regulations are followed, and that materials are applied according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Passive fire protection materials are subjected to extensive testing in a variety of applications, and the data supported these tests is essential for achieving technical compliance when applying these materials to any of your projects.
Passive Fire Protection training courses and refresher courses play a vital role in ensuring that your team is always up to date with the most recent regulations and innovative materials and is trained to install to the exacting standards required by many projects in this rapidly expanding market. Now is the time for companies to increase their investment in training programmes for their teams actively working in passive fire protection and to hold them accountable for the work they install. When it comes to passive fire protection, there are no second chances.
