Innovations in fire extinguishing systems

The fire and security industry has witnessed many innovations in water and gas based extinguishers and other mechanical components used in fire suppression systems. Data center operators are also adopting this type of system to reduce water consumption in the event of a fire. Growing innovation in fire and security systems is driving data center operators to invest in new and planned data center facilities.

Investments in data centers boost supply of fire and security infrastructure

Ascenty, Equinix, GlobeNet, ODATA, Quantico, Scala Data Centers and Telmex, among others, were top investors in Latin America in 2021. Brazil, Mexico and Chile were the top markets for data center construction in Latin America. Colocation service providers make significant contributions to large-scale data center projects, in which colocation facilities are leased from global cloud service providers.

Colocation providers are exploring innovations in fire and security systems to reduce the impact of fire-related outages. Data center operators prefer clean agent fire suppression systems over water-based systems. Additionally, some colocation service providers have adopted an inert gas fire extinguishing system to reduce the impact of fire extinguishers.


  • Rising investment in data center facilities will be the main driver of the data center fire detection and suppression systems market in Latin America, which is primarily dominated by colocation vendors, followed by vendors internet and cloud services.
  • In 2021, Brazil accounts for the major market share of around 60%, and Brazil and Chile are expected to drive the fire detection and extinguishing systems market during the forecast period.
  • It is estimated that the market is witnessing an increased adoption of gas-based fire suppression systems with clean agent extinguishers. For example, the Equinix RJ2 Rio de Janeiro IBX data center uses an FM200 gas-based fire suppression system with a preaction system and dry hoses.
  • Smart monitoring is one of the technologies adopted by data center operators for real-time monitoring of equipment for operating parameters such as ambient humidity and temperature, fire alarm, water leaks and data center infrastructure smoke detection.
