The context behind the development of explosion proof equipment can be traced back to 19th century, which saw the upsurge of usage of electrical equipments. It was a time of bitter experience in the form of firedamp explosion that lead to adoption of high standards of safety in electrical equipments. Presently, an increased expenditure on explosion proof equipments and prudent regulations adopted by different nations has resulted in diminishing level of such incidents. This market study has analyzed the classification of hazardous areas in North America and other parts of the world. The classification is based on locations that may be classified as explosive atmospheres due to the presence of flammable gases, vapours, liquids or combustible dusts. These are called ?Class system? in North America and ?zone system? in other parts of world. However, only presence of these explosive substances doesn?t fulfill the criteria of a location being hazardous. The market study also segments the equipments in different categories based on compliance drawn up by the European Standardization Committee (CEN) and the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC). The equipments have been further segmented based on its application across different zones or classes. These equipments have been categorized into different classes depending on the ignition temperature of materials used with the equipments. A further categorization is done on the basis of a system of equipment protection levels (EPLs) to clearly define the inherent ignition risk of equipment, no matter what type of protection is applied. Furthermore, these equipments have been mapped to the zones in which they can be applied. The key players in the market include ALstom, Cooper Industries, BARTEC GmbH, Crouse-Hinds (Cooper Industries), and STAHL, Inc. among others.
