“Functional safety market to exhibit significant growth between 2017 and 2022”
The functional safety market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.2% between 2017 and 2022 to reach USD 7.19 billion by 2022. The key factors driving the growth of the this market include mandatory functional safety standards and government policies, rising emphasis on proactive functional safety systems, and increasing demand for safety instrumented systems in the chemical and oil & gas industries. However, high initial investments related to the installation of functional safety systems act as a major restraining factor for the growth of this market.

“Safety sensors to hold the largest share of the functional safety market by 2022”
Safety sensors are used in automatic safety barriers, edges, electronic safety sensors, emergency stop (e-stop), palm buttons, safety controls, laser scanners, light curtains, mats, optoelectronic devices (single and multi-beam), and two-hand safety controls. The increasing security requirements for protecting workers and production units from any accidents, according to the strict regulations fulfilling the national and international standards, are driving the demand for safety sensors.

“Market for fire & gas monitoring control to grow at a high rate between 2017 and 2022”
Fire and gas safety systems continuously monitor situations such as a fire or combustible or toxic gas release within the plant; provide early warning; and guide on preventing escalation of the incident and protecting the process or environment. By implementing functional safety-certified fire and gas systems, plants can meet their safety and critical infrastructure protection requirements. The IEC 61511 and ANSI/ISA standards are increasingly being followed in various process industries such as oil & gas, chemical, and power generation, thereby contributing to the high growth of the market for fire and gas monitoring control.

“Market for power generation applications to grow at a high rate between 2017 and 2022”
The functional safety market for power generation applications is expected to grow at a high rate during the forecast period. Safety systems play an important role in maintaining functional safety and efficiency of power plants. Some of the major benefits of applying safety instrumented systems in power plants are efficiency improvement, operation optimization, unplanned downtime reduction, and high cost savings. Due to this, safety instrumented systems are widely adopted in power generation plants, which is contributing to market growth.

“Europe to hold the largest share of the overall functional safety market during the forecast period”
The implementation of various directives and industrial process and machine safety regulations in the region is driving the demand for functional safety systems. Europe follows safety standards such as EN 61508, EN 61511, and EN 62061. The increasing adoption of functional safety solutions to comply with these standards and workplace safety regulations is driving the growth of the market in this region.
