Fire Barrier Sealant Market: Introduction
- Fire barrier sealant is a high-performance, ready-to-use, gun-grade, latex-based, intumescent sealant that dries to form a monolithic firestop seal. The seal also acts as a barrier to airborne sound. Fire barrier sealants help control the spread of fire, smoke, and noxious gases before, during, and after exposure to fire.
- The unique intumescent property of fire barrier sealant material allows the sealant to expand and maintain a firestop penetration seal for up to four hours from exposure of penetrants to fire. Fire barrier sealants exhibit excellent adhesion to a wide range of construction substrates and penetrants.
- Walls and floors need to be appropriately sealed to prevent the passage of fire and smoke. Approved and tested products should be used while sealing penetrations passing through compartment walls and floors in order to re-establish fire resistance of the compartment.
Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Fire Barrier Sealant Market
- Fire barrier sealants are ideal for usage in sealing of single or multiple through-penetrations in fire-rated constructions. Fire barrier sealants are typically used in mechanical, electric, and plumbing applications to firestop openings created by the following penetrations in fire-rated floors, ceilings, or walls: metallic pipes, plastic pipes (excluding CPVC), conduits, power and communication cables, cable trays, bus ways, combos, insulated pipes, and HVAC ducts. Fire barrier sealants are also used to firestop blank openings and static construction joints.
- Usually unseen but always at work, passive fire protection systems are built into the structure of a building to safeguard building occupants. If properly installed, passive fire protection measures protect the building’s structure and limit the spread of fire and smoke by confining it within the building.
- Fire barrier sealants provide fire stopping and fire resistance across a building, ensuring that the building and its occupants are safer in the event of fire. Thus, rise in building and construction activities is estimated to boost the global fire barrier sealant market in the near future.
- Installation of fire barrier sealants requires skilled workforce. However, several building contractors do not specialize in the installation of fire barrier sealants. This forms a challenge that needs to be addressed by manufacturers of fire barrier sealants. Thus, proper training is required for specialists that install fire barrier sealants. This acts as a restraint of the global fire barrier sealant market.
Global Fire Barrier Sealant Market: Segmentation
- The global fire barrier sealant market can be segmented in terms of type and application
- Based on type, the market can be divided into acrylic, silicone, polyurethane, and others. The silicon segment is expected to expand at a high CAGR during the forecast period. Silicone-based fire barriers possess high durability.
- Based on application, the market can be classified into HVAC ducts & vents, metallic & non-metallic pipes, blank openings, single & bundled cables, insulated pipes, pipe & cable through-penetrations, busways, combos, rated wall, floor & floor-ceiling assemblies, static construction joints, and others.
Global Fire Barrier Sealant Market: Regional Segmentation
- In terms of region, the global fire barrier sealant market can be segregated into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
- Asia Pacific is a leading consumer of fire barrier sealants across the world, followed by North America and Europe. However, Asia Pacific is expected to lead the global fire barrier sealant market in the near future, due to rise in demand for fire barrier sealants in the building & construction sector in the region. Rise in construction activities in countries such as China, India, Singapore, Thailand, and Malaysia is fueling the demand for fire barrier sealants in the region.
- The fire barrier sealant market in Europe is led by Germany, France, and the U.K. The market in the region is primarily driven by increasing demand for these sealants in the building & construction industry in Europe.
COVID-19 Impact on Global Fire Barrier Sealant Market
- The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely impacted the global economy due to the stringent lockdowns imposed in all major countries. Manufacturing has also been affected by these lockdowns. However, governments of various countries across the world are currently easing lockdown restrictions. As a result, the manufacturing process is on the road to recovery. This is projected to drive the demand for fire barrier sealants during the forecast period.
