Fire fighting services are one of the core functions of the emergency services in the UK and around the world. In recent years, the increase in natural disasters as a result of climate change and rising temperatures across the globe has meant that the fire fighting tenders market is continually growing, and the demand for efficient and effective services is greater than ever.
For both new and existing suppliers looking to win fire fighting tenders, Defence Contracts International (DCI) helps support organisations to win business in fire services in the following areas:
Not only does DCI host the largest defence tenders database in Europe, fire fighting tenders in the UK and overseas are published every day, ready for your business to bid for and win.
In 2019, DCI published a total of 670 fire fighting tenders in the UK alone, and 989 fire fighting tenders located across the world. Note: the volume of tenders are likely to be much higher than this, as our search encompassed tenders that were posted only in English. It is highly probable that fire authorities around the world published tenders in the appropriate language based on the region. These figures reflect the wider value of the lucrative emergency services market and support expectations of growth in the years to come.

Fire services in the UK are funded by central government and a small levy on local council tax, alongside other blue light services in the police sector. Although the sector has suffered budget cuts in the UK for a number of years, moving into the new decade beyond 2020 the UK Government is expected to increase its spending on fire services. This shift has already been seen in the Scottish budget 2020-21, published in early February.
The Scottish budget outlined that spending on the fire service in Scotland will increase from £327.2 million to £333.3 million. This means that total spending on justice, which includes police services, the court system and fire services, will reach £2.8315 billion.
Increased spending will also be allocated to tackling the climate emergency, which has contributed to the rise in bushfires, flooding and other natural disasters which directly affect fire fighting tenders.
Governments across the world handle their fire services in different ways. However, they all share a common ground in that investment in fire services and the growth of fire fighting tenders are crucial to the safety of citizens, and they are more in demand now than they have ever been.
In 2018, the global fire safety equipment market was estimated to be worth USD58.43 billion, and it is anticipated that this market will expand by an average 8.8% year-on-year between 2019 and 2025 to reach a projected total of USD105.92 billion. This is due to the growing demand for advanced fire systems for commercial properties and for their use throughout a number of industries. Enterprises across the globe are progressively spending more on fire safety and infrastructure security, in order to reduce the damage caused by fire accidents.
Fire detection alone has driven technological advancements including water mist technology, wireless alarm systems and smoke detectors, all to ensure buildings are safe. It is worth noting, for this reason, that fire fighting tenders encompass a wide range of potential business opportunities across a number of sectors, combining infrastructure and technology with more effective procurement processes for both buyers and suppliers.
Fire services are a part of a wider range of emergency services tenders, including services run by the police. DCI published over 76,000 emergency services tenders in the UK in 2019, with over 350 of these contracts having an estimated value of over £1 million. In the same year, DCI published a further 119,000 emergency services tenders from across the globe.
