Growth Factors

The growth can be attributed to the growing demand for gas sensors to monitor gas emissions from industrial facilities. The increasing demand for wearable gas sensors for human health and environmental monitoring also bodes well for the growth of the market over the forecast period.

Various government bodies worldwide are imposing limits on vehicular emissions to curb atmospheric pollution and enhance fuel efficiency. For instance, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration revised the Corporate Average Fuel Economy targets and the greenhouse gas emission standards for passenger cars in April 2020. The need to abide by the newer emission standards is expected to trigger the demand for gas sensors over the forecast period.

Deteriorating air quality, particularly in urban areas, is a major problem in most parts of the world. Several people worldwide are suffering from various health disorders due to harmful gases emitted from vehicles and industrial facilities. At this juncture, gas sensors can potentially help in assessing the levels of carbon monoxide, and other gases in the air and contribute favorably to curbing air pollution.

Report Highlights

The gas sensor segment dominated the market in 2020 and accounted for a share of more than 31.0% of the global revenue. Carbon dioxide sensors are mainly used for monitoring indoor air quality in schools, office buildings, homes, and hospitals. Given that excessive exposure to carbon dioxide can induce health conditions, such as headache, and restlessness, among others, the demand for carbon dioxide sensors is rising significantly. Carbon dioxide sensors are also used for real-time monitoring of freshness, quality, and safety of agricultural products.

The carbon monoxide sensor segment is anticipated to register significant growth over the forecast period. Fatalities stemming from carbon monoxide poisoning are driving the need for carbon monoxide sensors. According to the statistics provided by, carbon monoxide poisoning resulted in 4.6 deaths per million in 2020. Developed countries, such as the U.S., are also confronting incidents related to carbon monoxide poisoning. According to the statistics provided by BMC Public Health, the U.S. witnessed 50,000 cases of carbon monoxide poisoning in 2019.

The wired segment dominated the gas sensor market in 2020 accounted for a share of more than 55% of the global revenue. The growth can be attributed to the benefits, such as compact size, low cost, low maintenance, and higher accuracy. In many situations, wired sensors are among the most reliable systems as they directly link the sensor to the device receiving the input, making them suitable for use in mines, oil rigs, and nuclear power plants. Furthermore, since infrared gas sensors have short battery life and use thermal sources, such as tungsten filament to work, they usually require hard-wired installation. Additionally, the increasing adoption of wired gas sensors in residential applications is a significant factor responsible for the segment growth.

The benefits offered by wireless gas sensors, such as enhanced safety, cost-effectiveness, and ease of portability, are expected to drive the growth of the segment. Wireless sensors can be used for various applications, such as emergency response, and leak detection, among others, for industrial safety. Wireless gas sensors can also be integrated with GPS and alarms to trigger alerts for workers in advance.

The electrochemical segment dominated the market in 2020 and accounted for a share of more than 21.0% of the global revenue. The demand for electrochemical sensors is rising as these sensors have intrinsically safer operations, consume lesser power, and offer better specificity to the target gas. Regulations drafted by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration on the exposure of toxic gas fumes are particularly triggering the need for gas sensors. The ability of electrochemical sensors to detect harmful gases, and landfill gases, among other gases also bodes well for the growth of the segment.

The infrared segment is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. An infrared detector consists of a source of infrared light; an optical, infrared receiver; and an optical filter to select the wavelength. These gas sensors are used for detecting combustible hydrocarbon gases using infrared light. The growth of the segment can also be attributed to the rising levels of pollution across the globe.

The industrial segment dominated the market in 2020 and accounted for a share of more than 20.0% of the global revenue. Industrial gas sensors are used for monitoring and detecting hazardous vapors and gases, and triggering visual and audible alarms. The Clean Air Act monitored by Environment Protection Agency creates the demand for gas sensors among the industries. The Clean Air Act requires states to establish a network of air monitoring stations using criteria set by EPA. Stringent rules and regulations drafted by various governments across the world to ensure cleaner ambient air are expected to drive the growth of the segment over the forecast period.

The segment is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. The LPG and LNG industry verticals have been aggressively deploying gas sensors as these industry verticals require monitoring at every step of storage, production, and transportation of gas. While natural gas production has been growing worldwide, the emphasis on safety and security at the processing facilities has also been equally strengthening. The continued growth in natural gas products is expected to drive the growth of the segment.

The Asia Pacific dominated the market in 2020 and accounted for a share of over 31.0% of the global revenue. Increasing awareness about the impact of air pollutants on human health across the countries in Asia Pacific, such as India and China, are driving the demand for gas sensors for air quality monitoring. Continued urbanization in the region is also contributing to the rising demand for gas sensors. According to the statistics provided by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, the world population is expected to add 2.5 billion people to urban areas by 2050, with close to 90% of this increase is expected to come from Asia and African countries. Thus, the increasing urban population leads to air pollution and thereby drives the need for gas sensors in coming years.
