The Global Fire Truck Market size is expected to reach $6.9 billion by 2030, rising at a market growth of 5.5% CAGR during the forecast period.
The need for fire trucks in the residential & commercial sector is surging as the construction sites are more prone to fire accidents, consequently, this sector would acquire approximately 56% share of the market by 2030. The construction business is expanding as a result of the rising demand for residential and commercial space. For example, by 2050, 68% of the world’s population, or more than half of total population will reside in urban areas. According to projections, 2.5 billion more people could live in urban areas by 2050 as a result of urbanization, which is the gradual movement of people from rural to urban areas. Nearly 90% of this increase would occur in Asia and Africa, according to a United Nations data set released in 2018. With this growing urbanization, there will be a considerable increase in construction activities all over the world. Some of the factors impacting the market are the increasing number of fire disaster cases worldwide, the government’s strict regulations, and more fire protection equipment is being installed.
Fire safety suppliers are continuously improving the current arrangement and bringing the newest technology and products as a result of the rising demand due to the growing incidence of fire accidents. The most significant fire incident in 2020, according to NFPA, occurred in a California wildfire known as the "2020 Fire Siege." A partial loss of at least $4.2 billion has been confirmed, while the total financial loss has not yet been disclosed. Over time, this loss estimate may increase by a few billion dollars. Governments are concerned about the safety of both people and property due to an ongoing increase in fire outbreaks. As a result, governments all over the world are putting strict regulations into place addressing fire security, which will boost the market. Additionally, the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) norms and standards specify that deploying fire trucks will be advantageous in an emergency. All the strict regulations of regulatory bodies along with the financial support for fire protection are predicted to support the growth of market.
However, in many countries, fire protection equipment is mandatory to be installed in all newly built hotels, nursing homes, hospitals, and houses. Sprinkler systems are also required in properties with more than two stories. As a result, the demand may decline, which would slow down the market’s expansion.
