Explosion proof enclosure or explosion proof packaging is an isolation provided to the equipment in order to prevent contact of fire inside with the external explosive environment. The hazardous and explosive environments are very common in manufacturing industries. The packaging can be made of metallic material or nonmetallic materials such as plastic, etc. To minimize the risk of explosion or fire, the explosion proof packaging is critical for the electrical instruments. The packaging are characterized to have properties such as anti-corrosion, ability to withstand high pressure, exposure to chemicals, and other extreme conditions. They are generally used to cover automation and electrical equipments/systems in the industries. Most of the manufacturing industries give rise to flammable and hazardous environment are which include chemical, pharmaceuticals, food & beverages, oil & gas, petrochemical, wastewater treatment industry use explosion proof packaging. Chemical, pharmaceutical, oil & gas, power generation, and petrochemical are the prominent end users. To avoid risk of explosion and ensure safety various laws and directives are developed in most of the countries. The organizations such as NEMA (National Environmental Management Authority) in US, and IEC (International Electro technical Commission) are responsible for the packaging standards.
Global Explosion Proof Packaging Market Dynamics
The global explosion proof packaging market is expected to be driven by the growing concerns and governmental regulation for safety in end use industries. The manufacturers in Europe are directed to follow the directive 94/9/EC while installing and commissioning mechanical and electrical systems in the hazardous environment. Similarly in US, the directives by NEC (National Environmental Commission) is followed. In rest of world, the compliance of the installation and commissioning of electrical systems is based on IEC (International Electro technical Commission). The trend towards minimizing the human efforts in each end use industry through automation is driving the demand and can be considered as one of the prominent driving factor for the global market. Growing global industrialization is also one of the driving factor for global explosion proof packaging market. The growing output of the end user industries is linked with the more need for safety provisions in the industries. The higher cost related to the packaging material is a major restraint for the market.
