The global fire-resistant cable market size is projected to grow from USD 1.8 billion in 2021 to USD 2.1 billion by 2026, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 3.3% during the forecast year. According to Nexans S.A., one of the leading electrical & electronic cable manufacturer, “Fire resistant cables ensure integrity of function during a fire by enabling the security systems (video surveillance, smoke ventilation, and audio alarms, amongst others) to continue functioning for a certain time after the fire has started. These cables are an essential component of any alarm circuit. During fires, buildings should remain functional to help in the evacuation process. People’s safety is the priority: fire safety equipment like warning systems, smoke detector, smoke extractor, emergency exits, and fire lighting equipment are key and must remain functional.
