Gas sensors are sensing devices that are used to detect presence of a particular gas in a given area. These devices measure and indicate the concentration of certain gases in given air through different technologies. Some of the most popular gas sensor technologies include electrochemical, catalytic, semiconductor, solid-state/metal oxide semiconductor (MOS), infrared and others. Typically,gas sensors are deployed to prevent exposure to toxic and fire.Thus, industrial manufacturing, oil & gas, chemical processing are the largest consumers for gas sensors.

Gas sensors are manufactured as portable (mobile) as well as stationary (fixed) units, and hence can be easily deployed on desired locations.Gas sensors notify increase in concentration of gases through audible or visible indicators such as sound alarms, lights or combination. Gas sensors are usually designed to detect a specific gas. Nevertheless, over the period of time, multi-gas sensing devices have come into existence that are designed for detecting several gases at a time. Due to continued efforts for developing advanced and compact gas sensors, the market is estimated to witness steady growth in the coming years.

The most significant factor fueling the gas sensors market is the ever-rising expansion of industrial sector worldwide. Due to rising number of oil & gas and chemical processing plants, the demand for gas sensors is estimated to remain strong throughout the forecast period. In addition, rising automotive industry worldwide is another major factor fueling the market growth. Increasing environmental concerns regarding air quality is expected to significantly bolster the market growth during the forecast period.

  • Others

Gas Sensors Market

Electrochemical and semiconductor gas sensors are the most popular segments collectively accounting for over forty percent of the total revenue generated worldwide. Electrochemical gas sensors are used for detecting hazardous gases such as carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) among others. These are highly cost effective and offer fairly high lifespan of upto 3 years. Subsequently, the electrochemical gas sensors segment is estimated to remain dominant in the market throughout the forecast period.

Semiconductor gas sensors offer simple design and are fairly cost-effective. In addition, they can be easily designed as per the application. Subsequently, the segment is estimated to continue witnessing strong growth during the forecast period. Nevertheless, the infrared gas sensors segment is estimated to register the highest growth during the forecast period. The high anticipated growth is majorly due to their superior advantages over conventional sensor technologies such as electrochemical and catalytic gas sensors.

The global gas sensors market has been segmented, on the basis of geographical regions, as per following regions and countries:

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Canada
  • Europe
    • U.K.
    • Germany
    • CIS
    • Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific
