Global gas sensors market size to exceed $2.5 billion by 2020

Global Gas Sensors Market is expected to reach USD 2,512.4 million by 2020, as per a new research report by Radiant Insights, Inc. High adoption rate of wireless and smart gas sensor technology coupled with escalating demand from end-use industries such as automotive is likely to drive global demand. 

CO2 sensors was the highest revenue generator product segment and was valued USD 479.3 million in 2013. It is expected to witness significant gains, with estimate of USD 696.2 million at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2014 to 2020. Increasing demand from industrial and bulk food storage sectors is spurring the demand growth during the forecast period. Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) was valued at USD 148.3 million in 2013, and is expected to reach USD 225.3 million by 2020, growing at an estimated CAGR of 6.2% over the next few years.

Wireless sensors detect concentration of the target gas, and transmit a proportional signal. Since they can be used in remote or hard-to-reach locations, the demand is expected to remain strong in the coming years. Other benefits include ease of installation, cost effectiveness, and the ability to create a network of sensors. Smart gas sensors can be integrated into portable electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets, which helps enhance overall performance under harsh external conditions. Use of shale gas in electricity production is likely to pose challenge to industry participants.
