North America and Europe Flame Arrestor Market Drivers 

Rising rate of investments towards oil and gas projects drives the market forward:

Rising rate of investments towards oil and gas projects can be considered as one of the major driving factors boosting the growth of flame arrestors. Due to its highly critical as well as hazardous industrial environment, oil & gas industry serve as a major end-user incorporating fire extinguishing equipment like flame arrestors. Production facilities related to oil & gas extraction, processing, refining and so on utilizes a broad range of hazardous, combustible as well as volatile compounds or chemicals, which adversely impact the industrial safety, thus creating higher adoption of flame arrestors. Pipeline systems used in oil & gas transportation are usually prone to high temperature, pressure and vibrations repeatedly, creating adverse impact on valves, fittings and related components. Due to this continuous and repeated operation across critical environments, there can be spill or leakage issues owing to prolonged wear and tear, causing fire related accidents or deaths, thus boosting the installation of flame arrestors.In October 2020, the Canadian Energy Pipeline Association had revealed about its plans regarding expansion project of NOVA Gas Transmission Ltd., to be scheduled for 2021 under approval from Government of Canada. This pipeline expansion was meant to act as an initiative towards providing larger access to natural gas from Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin across domestic and U.S markets. In January 2021, the German Government had granted the permission to resume work on the establishment of a natural gas pipeline in Russia, named Nord Stream 2 project. Since pipelines are used for transportation of high amount of oils or gases under high temperature or pressure conditions, contributing towards severe threats owing to fuel combustion, these infrastructural projects are further set to create a positive impact in the market growth of flame arrestors during the forecast period 2021-2026.

Stringent government regulations/policies regarding industrial safety:

Stringent government regulations/policies regarding industrial safety act as a major driver for boosting the growth towards the North America and Europe flame arrestor market. Major industry verticals including oil & gas, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, mining and so on offer a hazardous environment owing to use of volatile and combustible materials under high temperature or pressure conditions, leading to flame ignition at times. In response to fire explosion incident threats pertaining across these industries, various governmental bodies had implemented safety norms or set standards making it mandatory as a part of reducing industrial hazards, thus impacting the growth of fire explosion safety equipment.Moreover, these industries are required to comply with industrial safety regulatory norms as defined by government organizations namely, International Electrotechnical Commission, European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization and U.S Coast Guard with many others. As a part of regulatory compliance, it becomes mandatory for such end-use industries to install efficient hazardous fire control systems be it safety valves, flame arrestors and so on, thus positively impacting its market growth over the years. Additionally, owing to the guidelines set by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) related to industrial safety within chemical industries, the manufacturing plants are bound to comply with fire safety regulations. As there is generation of varied kind of volatile and harmful obnoxious gases, there are high chances of fire explosion occurrence due to mixing of flammable substances, thereby making it mandatory to deploy different fire protection systems/devices. Such strictly mandated regulatory policies/norms have been eventually propelling the demand for the flame arrestors.

North America and Europe Flame Arrestor Market Challenges
