Halma operates in highly specialised niche markets focused on safety, health and the environment. Products would include instruments that detect flammable and hazardous gases; fire detection systems; elevator safety products; devices that assist in eye surgery; and products for water quality testing.

These markets are all supported by regulation, so barriers to entry are high and long-term growth and profitability has been impressive.
