Fires cause billions of dollars in damage to homes and businesses each year. There are devices, however, that can protect against fires and mitigate their damage if they occur. The following reports analyze the fire sprinkler market and hydrant market.
The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) estimates that more than 358,000 residential structure fires occur each year in the United States. The cost of these house fires is estimated to be around $6.7 billion -- and that's only accounting for direct damage expenses. Homeowners can protect their property and their families from the dangers of fire by using the appropriate fire suppression system.
A fire sprinkler system is an example of a fire suppression system.
When triggered by smoke or heat, the system activates by dousing the surrounding area with water. With a fire suppression system such as this, homeowners can rest assured knowing that small fires will be extinguished before they can grow into larger and more destructive fires.
The Global Home Fire Sprinklers Market Research 2018 report by HTF Market Intelligence is a comprehensive study of the global home fire sprinkler market. It covers the market's size, classifications, trends, growth drivers, market challenges and more.
This report segments the global home fire sprinkler market by several criteria. On the basis of product type, the market is segmented into wet, dry, preaction and deluge.

Finally, the report segments the home sprinkler market into geographic region, covering key areas in which home sprinklers are commonly used like North America, United States, Canada, Mexico, Asia-Pacific, China, India, Japan, South Korea. Each market segment of this report is scrutinized in great detail.
The Global Fire Hydrant Systems Market Research 2018 report by HTF Market Intelligence is a second professional study, but it focuses on fire hydrants rather than fire sprinklers. Both devices are designed to suppress fires by extinguishing them with a substance, typically water. A fire hydrant, however, is a water-supplied connection point that provides water to firefighters. When a firefighter responds to a house fire, for example, he or she can connect their hose to the hydrant. Once connected, they can use the hose to douse and extinguish the fire with pressurized water. While homeowners typically purchase home fire sprinkler systems, governments and municipalities are the primary buyers of fire hydrant systems.
Some of the key fire hydrant system vendors profiled in this report include Tyco Fire Products, ZedEx Fire Services, Fire Hydrant Systems Pty Ltd, Minimax, Naffco, Kennedy Valve, Angus Fire, Rapidrop, Akash Uni Safe Equipment, AVK Valves, Smith & Sharks, Clow Canada, M&H valve, American Cast Iron Pipe Company & Waterous Global Fire Hydrant Systems and others.
