This in turn negatively impacted the demand and sales of outdoor warning sirens on a global level. The market value of outdoor warning sirens was US$ 154.7 Mn in 2020. However, one benefit that the industry witnessed due to the pandemic is that the testing of these devices has now spread out of prominent and developed countries such as the UK and the US. Due to this move, new sales of these devices are predicted to have impact in the short-term forecast significantly.

The market value is predicted to be US$ 159.4 Mn in 2022 with the market showing a Y-o-Y growth rate of 2.5% in 2022. With the pandemic situation now under control, the market is expected to witness moderate CAGR of 3.4% and is expected to be valued at US$ 222.8 Mn by 2032.

  • Short Term (2022 Q2 to 2025): The growth of dependent industries such as chemical and nuclear plants will increase the sales of the devices.
  • Medium Term (2025-2028): Developing devices that are more cost effective and have low maintenance cost will help to increase the market penetration of the product.
  • Long Term (2028-2032): Increased emphasis on R&D to improve the technology and material used to develop the device so that the device can withstand adverse weather conditions and transmit data to individuals.

Over the 2017-2021 historical period, the global outdoor warning siren market registered a market value of US$ 155.5 Mn during 2021, and according to Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the market is projected to exhibit growth at 3.4% CAGR between 2022 and 2032.

What Concerns Should Outdoor Warning Sirens Manufacturers Avert?

“High Installation and Maintenance Cost”

Outdoor warning sirens have a long lifecycle of about 25-30 years, and also, to supplement this long life, the usage of these devices is quite less. Due to this, the replacement of these products is comparatively less. In various countries, sirens are being used for a time period that varies between a years or a few decades, as a result, several agencies have adopted various programs to maintain these sirens.

Some of the sirens are being replaced, whereas a large number of them are getting repaired. The accessories prices are also quite high. In 2017, the price of replacement of batteries in these sirens was about US$ 650-700. Adding the maintenance cost to this, a total bill of about US$ 6,500 was generated. The high maintenance cost and less replacement of the product also hamper the outdoor warning sirens market growth over the forecast period.
