The Global Smoke Detector Market was valued at USD 1.68 billion in 2018, and is expected to register a CAGR of 8.6% during forecast period 2020-2026. Factors that are anticipated to boost the market include increase in number of fire accidents, need for instant action in case of any adversity and rising awareness regarding fire safety of buildings.

Ionization smoke alarms are employed to detect the presence of fine particles when entering ionization chamber. Fire smoke produces ample amount of tiny particles generated by flaming fires. On the other hand, photoelectric smoke alarms tend to have a light source and perceptible smoke coming out of the chamber that scatters the light and in sufficient quantities enables the sound of alarm.
However, despite the effectiveness of smoke detectors there is potential loss every year. Therefore, the selection of smoke detectors depends on the type and purpose. There are smoke detectors that can combine both detection technologies into single called dual sensor smoke detectors. In typical environments such as laboratories, gas filling stations or commercial kitchens, sensing technologies are widely deployed as intelligent devices. The market witnesses certain trends such as inception of advanced devices with microprocessor and use of multisensor detectors. These relay a capacity to handle air pressure, humidity and temperature even for subtle changes.
The smart detectors indicate the device’s location and wiring in the control panel within the building premises. As a matter of fact, faulty detectors can also relay false alarms to adjust their threshold level. To avoid any faulty conditions, the consideration of design of smoke detectors is important. This mainly involves the electrical transients and particular kind of radiated energy that affect the circuitry of ionization and photoelectric smoke detectors. Therefore, permissible error levels are to be recognized wherein the smoke detectors does not fail to accomplish its basic operation. For instance, while selecting an ionization detector for flaming fires which is normally used in case of fast flaming fires ranging upto 0.4 microns. These detectors can detect tiny particles but with a varying response time depending upon the nature of fire.
