Table of Contents

The Term Explosion refers to an unanticipated rise in the energy (chemical, mechanical or nuclear) of the system in an unbridled way accompanied by increase in temperature and release of gases. There are high possibilities of an explosion occurring in these industries due to technical glitches or the presence of explosive materials and such places are betokened as “hazardous zones”.

To prevent such explosions from occurring several types of protection measures are adopted while designing products for chemical, electrical, mechanical or nuclear use in such hazardous areas. Such Equipments are termed as being explosion-proof equipment.

Explosion Proof equipment does not mean that products will be able to withstand any explosion; instead it means that either the products will contain the source of explosion within its housings built specially for such purposes, or altogether prevent the explosion from happening by adopting certain prevention measures. Explosion proof equipment is not only required for electrical products, mechanical or non-electrical products do require these equipment as friction, hot surfaces cause ignition and lead to abominable damage. The overall market size in automation and control systems currently stands at $728.4m in 2014, and is forecast to cross the $1 billion mark by 2020.

The Explosion Proof equipment has been fragmented into different segments such as Equipment groups, the type of protection offered and by end user industry and more. The market was analyzed in detail considering all segments of components such as actuating systems, control panels; variable frequency drives and so on.

The Explosion Proof Equipment has also been Chunked Into Four Geographies That Are:
