Firefighting Foam Market to Reach USD 7.21 Billion by 2031 Driven by Increased Fire-Related Accidents Leading to Casualties and Loss of Property | Research by SNS Insider


The SNS Insider report estimates the Firefighting Foam Market size at USD 5.2 billion in 2023, with a projected CAGR of 3.7% to reach USD 7.21 billion by 2032

Pune, July 10, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The growth of the Firefighting Foams Market was largely driven by the rising demand for quality fire suppression solutions across industries. Recently, in 2023, technological innovation has been oriented to deliver greener firefighting foams, driven by public environmental concerns and regulatory pressures. For example, in 2023, the European Union introduced a plan to phase out PFAS-based foams by 2024, which further increases such a shift in 2023.

Segment Analysis

By Foam Type, Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF) dominated the firefighting foam market in 2023. It spreads along the surface area of fuels, forming a thin film acting like a barrier to prevent the flow of flammable vapors in contact with air. Hence, fires are efficiently suppressed because of its brilliant firefighting properties and wide scope of applications. It found extensive usage in the oil and gas, aviation, manufacturing, and petrochemical industries.

Moreover, the Alcohol-Resistant Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AR-AFFF) is the fastest growing segment in firefighting foam market. AR-AFFF has been specially formulated to address polar solvent fires involving alcohols and other flammable liquids that are known to degrade conventional AFFF. AR-AFFF gives excellent alcohol-based fuel resistance and hence finds very high adoption rates in industries dealing with ethanol, methanol, and related fuels. The increasing trend toward alcohol-based fuels and ever-stiffening safety laws have fueled steep growth in the AR-AFFF market.

Recent Developments

May 2024: Cross Plains Solutions launched SoyFoam, a sustainable PFAS-free firefighting foam made without fluorines.

April 2024: Tyco Fire Products, a subsidiary of Johnson Controls, settled for US$ 750 million with U.S. public water systems over claims of contamination from toxic “forever chemicals” in their firefighting foam.

May 2023: Johnson Controls introduced the NFF-331 3% x 3% Concentrate, a non-fluorinated firefighting foam. The NFF-331 concentrate shall be used as a multi-service and efficient replacement of the existing AR-AFFF concentrates in conventional foam sprinkler systems.

June 2022: Perimeter Solutions introduced SOLBERG VERSAGARD 1×3 Multipurpose Fluorine-Free Foam Concentrate, an alcohol-resistant, fluorine-free foam for industrial emergency response and the oil and gas segment for use on Class B and deep-seated Class A fires.

June 2022: Evonik launched POLYVEST eCO, a sustainable liquid polybutadiene to be used as a rubber additive in tire production, and answering the growing call for sustainable products without having to make compromises on fossil-based, like properties.

Regional Analysis

In 2023, the Asia Pacific held more than a 35% market share of the global revenue. The industries driving growth in this region are chemicals, marine, automobile, and aviation, as developing countries like China and India have shown strong growth. The region is also seeing massive chemical production. However, industrial safety is poor, and fires are frequent. This has exposed many Asia-Pacific countries to an increased risk of wildfires, hence a threat to the environment, livelihoods, and economies.
