The pandemic caused all the activities worldwide, as governments around the world put a lockdown measure to mitigate the spread of the virus. However, in many parts of the world, the lockdown has been lifted, the market output hasn’t been so good yet. Since there has been less availability of raw materials due to disrupted logistic supply, this escalated the raw material price and decreased demand from end-use industries. However, we expected the market to revive during the forecast period.
Furthermore, the market for passive fire protection is hampered by movement restrictions, construction and development halts, labor shortages, lower customer spending, depressed consumer mood, manufacturing halts or reductions, and supply chain disruptions.

Rising Demand to Develop Fire-safe Infrastructure to Drive Market Growth
The demand for fire safety equipment has increased worldwide. For instance, the catastrophic event that occurred in August 2020 at the harbor of Beirut, Lebanon's capital, was heart-wrenching. The aftermath of this accident revealed that the explosion was caused due to nearby fire. The fire triggered 2750 tons of ammonium nitrate, which was one of the greatest non-nuclear explosions in human history. This catastrophe made people more aware of investing in fire safety systems. This is likely to boost the passive fire protection market growth in upcoming years.
Asia Pacific to Dominate Backed by Increasing Consumption of Gold in the Region
North America is expected to remain at the forefront and hold the highest position in the market for passive fire protection during the forecast period owing to the rising awareness about fire safety and stringent rules by the government to have fire protection units in commercial as well as residential buildings. The region’s market stood at USD 2.13 billion in 2020.
Europe is expected to showcase significant passive fire protection market share in upcoming years, owing to the increased penalty by the government on people who do not comply with fire regulations. Furthermore, increased standardization and incessant inspection of industries are expected to promote the regional market.
Key Players to Focus on New Launches to Strengthen Their Positions
The market is consolidated by major companies striving to maintain their positions by focusing on acquisitions and new launches.
