A key factor driving the growth of this market is the increasing demand for petroleum oil and the associated fire risks. The ever-growing demand for energy has resulted in extensive onshore and offshore exploration activities, which is estimated to drive the market for firefighting foams. Crude oil and natural gas play crucial roles in the global energy supply chain. Crude oil is transformed into different products such as fuels that are primarily consumed by the transport sector. Fuels include gasoline, residual fuel oil, distillates (diesel/ gas oil), jet fuel, naphtha, kerosene, and a vast spectrum of other products. The global demand for petroleum products is still growing despite the availability of alternatives.

This market research report on the global firefighting foam market 2018-2022 also provides an analysis of the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook during the forecast period. Technavio classifies an emerging trend as a major factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.

In this report, Technavio highlights the rising adoption of fluorine-free firefighting foams as one of the key emerging trends in the global firefighting foam market:

Global firefighting foam market: Rising adoption of fluorine-free firefighting foams

The market is witnessing the increasing adoption of fluorine-free foams amid rising concerns of environmental harm caused by firefighting foams containing fluorine. Players in the market are developing fluorine-free foams to combat class B fires. At present, these foams are used in airports to douse blazes caused by flat spill fuel and their uses in other applications are quite miniscule. Fluorine-free foams are more environment-friendly in comparison to fluorinated firefighting foams.

“Generally, fluorine-free firefighting foams are synthetic surfactant-based foams such as polysaccharides. Fluorine-free foams have various issues such as negligible film-forming ability, high viscosity, and lower extinguishing and burnback performance. Modifications in existing firefighting foams require high initial capital investments to replace conventional firefighting foam systems with fluorine-free foams. Nevertheless, their biodegradable nature and the lower environmental impacts caused by these foams make them suitable for class B fires,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on specialty chemicals.

Global firefighting foam market: Segmentation analysis
