Explosion Proof Mobile Communication Market Drivers


Stringent Regulation for the adoption of explosion proof mobile communication devices

Ensuring safe handling of hazardous substances in industrial areas has been a major concern for manufacturers and end-users involved in the same. In the wake of industrial explosions in the oil and mining sector, governmental agencies and trade bodies of all major economies have discussed the need for stringent regulations. These regulations are centered on the use of explosion proof equipment in all major industries. All the major electrical product manufacturers have revamped their operations to account for these changes in regulations. As the oil and mining sector has witnessed a tremendous growth due to identification of substantial reserves in emerging countries, the explosion proof equipment market is expected to record high growth rates in this sector. For Instance, In the U.S., the National Electrical Code (NEC) Handbook provide details of all regulations interconnected to manufacturing facilities at risk. In addition to this, the articles 500, 501, 502, 503 outline the necessities to classify hazardous locations into various classes, groups, and pisions. The Dangerous substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulation (DSEAR) has been commissioned in the U.K. to prescribe safety regulations for industrial areas that have a potentially hazardous environment. Also, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) enforces OSHA standards and may reference National Consensus Standards such as National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and ANSI etc as needed. As per the ANSI/ASSE Z244.1-2016 the control of hazardous energy Lockout/Tagout and alternative methods. This standard requires for the control of hazardous activity or energy associated with machines and equipment that could cause harm to personnel. The standard specifies the use of alternative methods to control hazardous energy associated with machines and equipment that could cause harm. This would promote the adoption of explosion proof mobile communication devices as such devices helps to control and monitor places those are more prone to hazardous activities such as mines, defense and military area.

High adoption of explosion proof communication devices in oil and gas industry

The high demand for explosion proof communication devices oil and gas is anticipated to promote the growth of the market. As the energy consumption increased by a good number, with growth concentrated in developing countries such as China and India. For instance, as per the Indian Brand Equity Foundation, oil demand in India is projected to register a 2x growth to reach around 11 million barrels by 2045. Also, the diesel demand in India is expected to get double to approx. 163 MT by 2029-30, with diesel and gasoline covering around 58% of India’s oil demand by 2045. As per the According to the latest analysis by Wood Mackenzie, China’s oil demand will recover to 13 million barrels per day (b/d) in Q2 2020, a 16.3% jump compared to Q1 this year. In the oil and gas industry, these devices play a critical role in boosting production through real-time data transfer and communication. Also, the advent of IoT device throughout the sector has revolutionized which mean lower costs and faster operations. It also improves the working conditions for the offshore workers. Also, the accidents in oil and gas industry would also create lucrative growth prospects for the market. For instance, the Deepwater Horizon oil leak, the largest accidental maritime oil spill in the history of the petroleum sector, happened in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 on the British -operated Macondo Prospect. The total spillage was estimated by the US government results in an accident. As a result, government enacted strict restrictions regarding policies and safety equipment. To ensure safety these measures included the use of explosion-proof equipment. The implementation of safety policies is expected to increase reliance on explosion-proof equipment thereby, promoting the growth of the market. Hence, Oil refineries, petrochemical plants, mining quarries, chemical factories, and corn mills are prone to high risks, due to the presence of highly inflammable substances in large quantities. They need to be continuously monitored to ensure safety and productivity. As a result, explosion proof communication devices are widely needed to transmit images, data, and voice to monitor and control such places.

Explosion Proof Mobile Communication Market Challenges


Safety Regulations Vary across different regions

Varying safety regulations country to country across the globe is impacting companies to develop products incompatible with all countries. This factor is somewhere restricting the explosion -proof mobile communication devices market growth. The explosion -proof mobile communication devices market concentration is inclined towards the consolidation with a few major players in the market, offering the products. Due to the varying safety regulations, new players entering into the market are facing issues to develop the same or incompatible product that other countries to offering. This, would indirectly affect the growth of the global explosion-proof mobile communication device market. Also, Product liability has created problems for manufacturers and product sellers for many decades. These problems have been exacerbated by the expansion of product liability laws throughout the world. In addition, there has been a proliferation of safety regulatory requirements, starting in the United States and then moving to the European Union. In addition, countries such as Japan, China, Australia, Canada, Brazil and South Africa have all recently established or strengthened their product safety regulatory regimes and requirements. This all creates additional challenges for companies who want to and must comply with all laws, regulations and standards in any country where they sell their products. Such companies may also need to consider safety requirements in countries where they do not sell products to the extent they believe that these requirements establish a “state of the art” that they want to meet. Such factors are creating challenges for the companies to develop products or to comply laws in different regions thereby, restraining the growth of the FinTech market.
