Flame Detectors Market

Date: 2016-05

As the name suggests, the function of a flame detector is to detect the presence of fire or a flame. Essentially a sensor, this device sounds an alarm on detection of a fire and in some cases, also activates a fire extinguishing system. Flame detectors have the ability to detect the intensity of radiation and hence have been classified as infra-red (IR) flame detectors and ultra-violet (UV) flame detectors. Flame detectors are equipped to work under harsh conditions. Apart from the radiation detected, flame detectors can also be classified as flame detectors that purely serve the purpose of detecting fire and sounding alarms and those that actually monitor a flame inside a burner.

Flame detectors have been in use for several decades and the market for flame detectors will continue to grow owing to the critical applications of flame detectors. In addition, advances in technology have evolved flame detectors to such an extent that there are application specific flame detectors available in the market.

Factors hindering the growth of this market include a high initial investment requirement and to a certain extent, a lack of awareness. This lack of awareness currently is more of an issue in developing economies only. Several developed countries have regulations in place that make the installation of flame detectors mandatory.
