Flame Arrester Market: Overview

Flame arrester is a protective system installed to prevent or reduce the effects of an explosion. This device allows gas to pass through it but stops a flame in order to prevent a larger incidence of fire or explosion. Installation of a flame arrester system protects people, facilities, and the environment itself. High risk of fire or explosion exists in plants meant for processing, transport, and storage of flammable liquids and gases and hence, these are also the most common places where flame arresters are used.

Flame Arrester Market: Drivers & Restraints

Rapid growth of end-use industries such as power generation, pharmaceutical, chemical, and fertilizers in developing as well as developed countries is likely to be a major factor driving the global flame arrester market during the forecast period. Use of flame arresters ensures high levels of safety and better protection of plants as well as employees. This factor is also expected to drive the global flame arrester market in the next few years. Limited use of flame arrestors in developing economies is a factor that may hamper the market, especially in China, India, and Indonesia, wherein small- and mid-sized manufacturers opt for hazard prevention equipment such as gas-blanketing systems to save costs rather than installing hazard protection equipment such as flame arrestors.

Flame Arrester Market: Key Segments

The global flame arrester market can be segmented based on type, orientation, end-user, and region. In terms of type, the market can be divided into in-line and end-of-line. The in-line segment dominates the global flame arrester market. In-line flame arrestors are bi-directional flame arrestors installed between pipelines or vents. They are used in the oil & gas industry to control flame propagation, which can cause shock waves in gas if not controlled effectively. The end-of-line segment is projected to expand significantly during the forecast period. In end-of-line flame arresters, one end of the arrester is connected to the pipeline or tank, while the other end is open.

Based on orientation, the flame arrester market can be segregated into horizontal flame arrester and vertical flame arrester. Vertical flame arresters are designed to provide a positive flame stop on low-pressure tanks or piping systems containing flammable liquids or solvents with a low flash point.

Based on end-user, the flame arrester market can be classified into oil & gas, chemical, pharmaceutical, waste-to-energy plants, and others. The oil & gas segment dominates the market. The segment is projected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period.  Boom of shale gas & tight oil industry in North America and Asia Pacific is driving the oil & gas segment of the flame arrestor market.

Flame Arrester Market: Regional Outlook

In terms of region, the global flame arrester market can be divided into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific is anticipated to lead the global flame arrester market during the forecast period. The market in the region is expected to expand at a rapid pace from 2018 to 2026. Constant investments in refinery expansion and construction of storage terminals and tank farms in the region are promoting growth of the flame arrestor market in Asia Pacific. Additionally, robust growth of pharmaceutical and chemical industries in the region are driving the market in the region. China, Japan, India, and Indonesia are key countries of the flame arrester market in Asia Pacific. North America and Europe are expected to contribute significantly to the global flame arrester market during the forecast period, primarily due to stringent rules and regulations related to maintaining safe working conditions in factories and other facilities in these regions.
