Global Emergency Shutdown Systems Market Segment Insights
Control Method Segment Analysis
Based on the control method, the market is divided into electrical, fiber optic, and pneumatic. The pneumatic segment is expected to account for a considerable market share during the forecast period. Pneumatic control is an economical and effective choice for designing commercial buildings. It is powered by compressed air, which makes it ideal for controlling humidity, temperature, and pressure. This factor is propelling the segment.
Application Segment Analysis
Based on application, the global emergency shutdown systems market is segmented into oil & gas, refining, and power generation. The oil & gas segment holds a major share of the market, owing to increasing upstream activity and recovering oil & gas prices. ESD system aids in combating emergencies in the oil & gas industry. The system uses components such as switches, valves, sensors, and others to control and monitor emergencies.
The increasing demand for ESD systems from upstream, midstream, and downstream (oil refineries) activities is driving the oil & gas segment. The power generation segment is expected to expand at a steady growth rate during the forecast period, due to rising energy demand across the globe. A sharp rise in the number of nuclear power plants has created a high demand for emergency shutdown systems.
ESD systems play a vital role in power plants as a safety system. Thus, increasing construction of nuclear power plants is expected to create a high demand for emergency shutdown systems in the market. For instance,
