Global Fire Hose and Nozzle Market - Outlook and Forecast 2023-2028
The global fire hose market was valued at USD 540.0 million in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 803.4 million by 2028, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.85%. This growth can be attributed to the increasing awareness of fire safety systems among individuals. During fire seasons, there is a surge in the demand for fire hoses and nozzles to prevent destruction of property and loss of life. Additionally, the construction of commercial and residential buildings contributes to the growth of the fire fighting systems industry, driving the demand for fire hoses and nozzles.
A fire hose is an essential tool used in firefighting applications to carry water to the nozzle for spraying onto targeted systems. The working pressure of a fire hose can vary between 6 and 25 bar. The fire hose nozzle is responsible for delivering a solid stream of liquid, with the flow rate depending on the velocity of the stream and the size of the discharge opening. In addition to firefighting, fire hoses and nozzles can also be used as flotation devices in water rescue operations by inflating them with air. They are also used for pumping water out of basements. The lifespan of hoses and nozzles depends on the material quality and frequency of usage.

The global fire nozzle market reached a size of USD 160.0 million in 2022 and is expected to reach USD 219.8 million by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 5.43%. The growth in developing regions, along with favorable fixed investments, is projected to have a positive impact on the fire safety industry. Increasing demand for fire services in commercial segments such as sports fields, hotels, hospitals, and industries also drives the development of the fire care industry in North America. The implementation of stricter fire regulations for buildings in commercial construction activities further contributes to the growth of the fire hose and nozzle market.
The initial phase of the COVID-19 pandemic severely impacted the manufacturing sector, including the production of fire hoses and nozzles. However, as construction activities gradually resume and demand from various sectors continues, the fire hose and nozzle market is expected to experience growth in the subsequent periods worldwide.
Continuous development in the design and features of fire hoses and nozzles contributes to their sustained presence in the industry. For example, Delta fire introduced the delta mini 3D nozzle ball in March 2019, which provides 3D coverage and can be used by firefighters to pass through car windows or skips while maintaining a safe distance.
The construction of hotels worldwide supports the growth of the global fire hose and nozzle market. In 2021, the Asia-Pacific region experienced a 5% increase in hotel development activity. This leads to an increased installation of fire safety systems, driving the demand for fire hoses and nozzles. Additionally, hospital construction projects initiated in Europe in 2021 are expected to be completed by 2025, further supporting the industry’s demand for fire hoses and nozzles.
A study backed by NOAA in 2021 determined that climate change is one of the main factors contributing to the rise in fire weather in the western United States. Fluctuations in climatic conditions have led to an increase in wildfires, necessitating the use of fire hoses and nozzles to prevent property and life damage. According to the National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC) statistics, approximately 56,660 fires had already burned a total of 6,946,391 acres by October 2022. This increase in fire incidents has raised awareness about fire safety, driving the growth of the fire hose and nozzle market.
In 2022, the UK government converted the fire safety bill into the fire safety act, granting greater power and control over the implementation of fire safety systems. This act clarified the accountability of duty-holders/building owners for multi-occupied residential buildings. In 2020, the National Building Code established stringent rules regarding fire safety for new and existing buildings, requiring third-party accreditation. These initiatives by governments and organizations have led to the development of fire safety requirements, significantly propelling the growth of the global fire hose and nozzle market.
The market is segmented based on various factors, including nozzle pressure, hose pressure, end-user, distribution channel, and geography.
