Global type 3 fire hose market

Type 3 hoses have an exterior elastomeric covering that ensures low absorption of liquids and high resistance to abrasion and heat. This is the main reason for the growth of the type 3 fire hose market, along with high durability, adaptability to environment usage, and negligible friction loss,” says Sarah Haque, a lead research analyst at Technavio.

Type 3 fire hoses have an edge over type 1 and type 2 fire hoses as friction loss is minimal and a high tolerance for rough terrains. So, the global type 3 fire hose market will grow rapidly at a CAGR of more than 7% over 2015-2020. The market share of this segment is expected to increase to almost 53% by 2020.

Global type 2 fire hose market

Type 2 hoses have an external coating that prevents the absorption of liquids and improves resistance to abrasion. So, type 2 hoses have an edge over type 1 fire hoses. “These products are still used by end-users because of their cost-effectiveness compared with type 3 fire hoses and higher durability compared with type 1 fire hose,” adds Sarah.

Global type 1 fire hose market

Type 1 fire hose contains a circular woven jacket or support of a synthetic fiber with an impermeable internal lining. It has no external coatings like the other types of fire hoses. Type 1 fire hoses are mainly used by firefighters and industrial users. As it is uncoated, it lacks overall strength, which gradually reduces the durability and lifespan of a fire hose. So, this segment will grow at a sluggish rate over the period of 2015-2020.
