Firefighting foams can extinguish the fire by cutting off the oxygen supply. With excellent efficiency in terms of time to die out the fire, foams can leverage better negotiating with threats.

To cater to all fire outbreaks caused due to flammable liquids, synthetic foams are used. Due to the ability of such foams to mitigate risks associated with such an outbreak, the popularity of such foams is expected to gain more traction in different end-user industries.

The expansion ratio of foams could vary depending on the foam proportioning and discharge devices. Such foams can cater to the varying severity of the fire, thereby differentiating different categories based on varying uses of foams.

With the growing emphasis on maintaining workplace safety, commercial uses of foams are likely to surge in the future. Regulatory norms and policy designs for arresting mishaps caused due to fire are adding to the demand for foams.

Due to the growing technological infrastructure, the possibility of augmentation of products in the competitive landscape is higher. Key players in the industry are innovating, and elevating the efficiency of firefighting foams. As a result, the popularity of such foams is increasing.

Government grants and subsidies for research and development are driving the process of product augmentation. Due to this, the scope of application of such foams is likely to spur, driving the demand in various end-user segments. This is a key factor, which drives the global competitive landscape of the firefighting foam market.
