Governments look to explosion proof equipment to protect environment
Governments are specifying the use of explosion proof equipment to protect the environment against industrial risks such as oil and gas exploration, according to a new market research report. A publication from WiseGuyReports cites environmental concerns as a key driver of growth in the global market for explosion proof equipment between 2015 and 2020. The analyst forecasts a compound annual growth rate of 8.23% during the half-decade, taking the worldwide market for ex equipment from $4.13 billion to $6.13 billion. "Preservation of the environment is a high priority concern and the governments recognise this issue," the report states. "This has resulted in the implementation of government regulations particularly in the oil and gas exploration industry. "Although the major markets for explosion proof equipment are the mining and oil & gas industries, it has also found applications in fields like aerospace, construction, and other industries." Governments play an important role in shaping the future of the explosion proof equipment market, as they set the regulations by which it is certified for use. This can be seen in the reactive tightening of regulations in response to major mining incidents and so on, where government and industry groups may look to ex equipment to ensure such incidents cannot happen again in the future.read more
Ex equipment protects finances and safety
Ex equipment protects not only the safety of human workers in hazardous areas, but also the finances of the operating company, a newly published market research report notes. Explosion Proof Equipment Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2016-2026 from Future Market Insights highlights the dual benefits of ex equipment for hazardous areas. "Today explosion proof equipment is used in almost all industries for the protection of finances as well as lives," the report states. Like other recent reports, the study identifies several major markets for the coming years, including increased adoption of ex equipment in oil and gas industries, new mining exploration, and rising demand for automation applications. It adds that stiffer safety regulations are also leading to greater uptake of ex equipment for hazardous areas in all sectors and industries as companies comply with newly introduced legislation. The report breaks ex equipment down into individual types of equipment, for example ex cable glands, switchgear, surveillance systems, material handling, lifting systems, and power generation and distribution. It also points out the different purposes of explosion proof equipment, from devices that prevent ignition, to enclosures designed to contain a blast if one occurs.read more
