Safety Instrumented System Market Analysis

The Safety Instrumented System Market size is estimated at USD 4.60 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 6.43 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 6.93% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

The widespread adoption of safety regulations and standards, coupled with increased awareness about the need for industrial safety management and competency at individual and organizational levels, has led to the rapid adoption of safety switches in manufacturing units to prevent accidents.

  • In August 2023, five laborers died after inhaling a suspected poisonous gas that emanated from a tank at a food product factory in Madhya Pradesh. It was due to a lack of negligence in taking safety measures at the factory. Also, 18 workers were hospitalized after inhaling a toxic gas that leaked from a tank in a chemical factory in Gujarat, India. Such an alarming situation has emphasized the need for various end-user industries in the country to adopt high-integrity pressure protection systems.
  • The industrial processes across chemicals and petrochemicals, power generation, pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, oil and gas, and other end users are closely regulated by various governing bodies to prevent sudden breakdowns and mishaps. The regulatory environment has tightened to encourage the deployment of SIS as a precautionary measure. The widespread adoption of safety regulations and standards, coupled with increased awareness about the need for industrial safety management and competency at both individual and organizational levels, has led to the rapid adoption of safety switches in manufacturing units to prevent any accidents.
  • The deployment of the SIS in the oil and gas industry is driven by the strict laws and acts that are formulated to restrict catastrophic spillage and avoid environmental pollution.
  • For instance, the US Oil Pollution Act, alongside Oil Spills Prevention and Preparedness Regulations, is placed to prevent such accidents. Several compliance programs, such as the On-Site Civil Inspection Procedures Rule, as contemplated by section 7 of EO 13892, ensure that reasonable administrative inspections check whether the facilities comply with environmental laws. The growing regulatory environment in various industries contributes to market growth.
  • Since the onset of the Israeli-Hamas crisis, oil prices have surged by approximately 6%, with expectations of further increases. Global economists are formulating strategies to address the inflationary impact resulting from the ongoing war, which has already left a lasting mark on the global economy, causing continuous disruptions. Analysts are closely scrutinizing the trajectory of the Middle East crisis, drawing comparisons with past conflicts in the region to assess potential economic repercussions.
  • According to the World Bank, an escalation in the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian militant group could trigger a significant energy shock, marking the first such occurrence in decades. These consequences stem from the aftermath of Russia's recent war with Ukraine and the persisting Middle East crisis, raising concerns of a recurrence of the oil price crisis seen in the 1970s. Consequently, the crisis is anticipated to significantly impact the Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) sector, given that the oil and gas industry ranks among the largest end-users of SIS.
  • The war is also poised to lead to higher food and energy prices, potentially intensifying economic consequences and causing a dual shock in global commodity markets. The resulting surge in oil and gas prices would have a cascading effect, elevating costs in the shipping and fertilizer sectors. This, in turn, could translate into increased prices for agricultural commodities, further influencing the growth of Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS).

Safety Instrumented System Market Trends

Chemical and Petrochemical Industry is Expected to Hold a Major Market Share

  • A safety instrumented system encompasses sensors, logic solvers, and final control elements to keep the process safe when predetermined conditions are violated. The growing benefits of safety instrumented systems over traditional ones fuel the market demand. The chemicals and petrochemicals industries are identified as continuously developing industries where the need to expand and upgrade aging safety problems and infrastructures is essential.
  • For instance, according to Brand Finance, in 2023, the world's chemical industry had a brand value of nearly USD 62 billion. This represents an increase of over USD 36 billion in 2015 when comparing the global chemical industry's brand value. Traditional safety systems are deployed through an electrical control system and are hardwired, leading to potential accidents affecting people, assets, and the environment.
  • This is expected to increase the demand for safety-instrumented systems in petrochemical industries that deliver several advantages, such as prolonged field life, reduction in unplanned downtime, reduction in annual maintenance cost, elimination of unexpected repair expenses, and adherence to current codes and standards. Thus, the increasing advantages of safety instrumented systems over traditional safety systems are expected to drive industry growth.
  • Chemical industries have hazardous environments due to gas, oil, or dust, creating an explosive atmosphere in and around the machines. Moreover, the industry issues related to regulation, geopolitical risk, legal limits on using natural resources, shareholder activism, and increasing public scrutiny have created additional challenges. Thus, safety equipment such as fire and gas monitoring and detection, SCADA, and HIPPS installation is paramount.
  • Further, many companies offer controllers for emergency and safety shutdown duties and handle complex equipment maintenance in the petrochemical plant. For instance, HIMA, an intelligent safety company, offers controllers that perform classic emergency shutdown duties and handle complex equipment functions. The SafeEthernet protocol ensures safe cross-communication between controllers at safety integrity level 3 (SIL 3). It also offers fast response times in a safety shutdown, and the high operational safety (SIL 3) within safety-critical production processes contributes to the acetylene plant's high availability and productivity.

Asia-Pacific is Expected to Witness High Growth Rate

  • In many industrial processes and automation systems, safety instrumented systems play an important role in delivering protective layer functions. The term "safety system engineering" refers to a disciplined and methodical approach to hazard identification, safety requirement specifications, and system maintenance and operation throughout the life of a plant. The rise of the petrochemical and energy sectors is critical to the growth of the safety instrumented system industry.
  • Furthermore, as the process sector advances toward embracing greater safety standards, control systems that can manage changes, such as steam turbines, compressors, and variable speed drives, may become necessary to maintain profitability while meeting agile needs.
  • Because of stagnating industrial growth in industrialized countries, demand for valves and actuators has slowed. The government's increasing support for new industries, as well as political conditions, make the country conducive to industrial expansion. As a result, foreign corporations are looking to invest in this industry. In addition, there are ongoing and planned initiatives for establishing water and wastewater treatment plants in the region.
  • For example, the Cambodian government and the Japanese International Cooperation Agency struck an agreement to construct a wastewater treatment plant in the Dangkor area. With a USD 25 million investment, the project aims to improve the drainage infrastructure in the district so that wastewater can flow directly to the plant rather than into the river. Such projects are expected to fuel the safety instrumentation systems market in Asia-Pacific.
  • The food and beverage sector has a moral and legal responsibility to protect its employees. Heavy machinery, hazardous chemicals, and slick surfaces are among the immediate concerns, while dust inhalation, hearing loss, and repetitive strain injuries are among the more gradual threats. Coca-Cola, the world's largest beverage company, has noticed a surge in demand for sugar-free and low-sugar beverages in Southeast Asia. After the COVID-19 pandemic, this became more prominent.
  • Due to rapidly increasing industrial activities, rising cost pressures and production rates, and favorable government policies in developing countries like China and India, Asia-Pacific is predicted to witness the fastest growth rate.
