The environmental sensors market is expected to grow by registering a CAGR of 9.25% during the forecast period. The market for environmental sensors is anticipated to experience considerable growth potential due to the rise in pollution yearly brought on by increased air travel, autos, and other factors. The development of Industry 4.0, which develops a market for environmental sensors, adds to this.

Key Highlights

  • The growth of the global population has led to increased industrial development and activity simultaneously. The unsustainable practices across industries have resulted in rapid degradation of soil, air, and water quality worldwide, which has, in turn, led to an increase in the demand for devices that can help detect environmental changes.
  • The environmental sensor market is supported by the growing number of government initiatives for curbing environmental pollution. For instance, the government's increasing focus worldwide on monitoring ecological pollution and reducing the number of deaths due to gaseous pollution is anticipated to increase environmental sensors' demand.
  • Further, with the Industry 4.0 developments, environmental sensors are expected to collectively reap the benefits of multiple innovative and brilliant city initiatives. For instance, machine-to-machine (M2M) is scheduled to include interaction between technologies (such as factory floor sensors) to enhance manufacturing processes and safety.
  • Companies are focused on providing industrial sensors dedicated to the chemical industry to cater to various needs. For instance, Sensortech Systems offers RF Series moisture sensor that includes moisture measurement for powdered chemical products. The company also gives IR Series moisture analyzers that provide a non-contact continuous online moisture measurement. This line of sensors further automation in chemical industries.
  • However, lack of awareness, budgetary constraints to adopting new technology, and regularity models are the restraints to the growth of environmental sensing.
  • Though the pandemic has increased concerns in the industrial sector, it has decreased pollution across the globe. One of the most tangible and immediate environmental manifestations of the coronavirus pandemic has been ameliorated air quality due to reduced air pollutant emissions. This is because lockdowns and closures worldwide led to reduced energy consumption, transportation use, and oil demand. In China, for instance, the emission of NO2 (nitrogen dioxide) dropped by 70% between January and February, according to a study published in May in the multidisciplinary journal Air Quality, Atmosphere, and Health. In India, a reduction of 20-30% was noted.

Environmental Sensors Market Trends

Temperature Sensors to Drive the Environmental Sensors Market

  • A smart temperature sensor is an integrated system consisting of a temperature sensor, bias circuitry, and an analog-to-digital converter (ADC). A temperature sensor measures heat to ensure a process stays within a specific range, providing safe application usage or meeting a necessary condition when dealing with extreme heat, hazards, or inaccessible measuring points.
  • The demand for reliable, high-performance, and low-cost sensors is increasing, leading to the development of new technologies, such as microtechnology and nanotechnology. The low cost, small size, and ease of use led the sensors to widespread use in various industries, such as automobile, residential, medical, environmental, food processing, and chemical.
  • Integrating temperature sensors into smart homes help homeowners enhance their energy efficiency, as the heating inside the property is adjusted based on the occupancy. Sensor-equipped devices, such as remote thermostat controllers, get real-time temperature data from inside every house room.
  • Temperature sensors are being incorporated into intelligent camera systems designed to offer accurate and non-contact temperature monitoring across various disciplines. The applications include manufacturing process control, product development, waste management, facilities maintenance, emissions monitoring, and environmental, health, and safety (EHS) improvements.
  • Additionally, temperature sensors enable accurate non-contact temperature measurement in healthcare. Physicians use IoT-based temperature trackers to measure ear, forehead, or skin temperature. Moreover, Multiple companies are launching IIoT sensors to drive the automation of the chemical industry. For instance, in January 2021, Asystom announced the launch of AsystomSentinel EX, a combination of triaxial vibration, sound, and ultrasound sensors to cater to the chemical industry.

Asia-Pacific is Expected to Register the Highest Growth Rate

  • The Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing economic region in the world. The region is witnessing the rapid proliferation of smart technologies, such as smart cities, autonomous vehicles, IoT applications, home automation, industrial automation, intelligent processing technologies, and others. Such factors are expected to drive market growth.
  • In recent years, the APAC region witnessed a notable surge in the usage of connected devices, including connected cars, smart home devices, wearables, and autonomous machines. Demand for connected devices is expected to drive the Environmental Sensors Market during the forecast period.
  • India is one of the fastest developing countries in the world, with the government investing significantly in advanced technologies and more innovative infrastructures. With such rapid developments, sensors in the country are finding widespread applications in smartphones, automobiles, and healthcare. Some of the most common consumer electronics sensors include motion, temperature, and pressure sensors.
  • Further, according to Schneider, 'The smart homes market is fast evolving in the Indian context.” Initially, smart homes were marketed primarily as homes with advanced security features. The market is now changing into newer areas, like lighting systems, gas leakage detectors, fire detection systems, entertainment systems, and energy efficiency systems. Therefore, the growth of smart homes will lead to a positive outlook in the environmental sensors market.
  • Moreover, increasing government initiatives to control environmental pollution levels, increasing government funding for pollution control and monitoring, ongoing installations of environment monitoring stations, and growing initiatives for the development of environment-friendly industries are some key factors driving the growth of the global market.
  • For instance, in July 2021, a proposal from the Indian government’s Ministry of Earth Sciences to pursue a Deep Ocean Mission to explore the ocean for resources and develop deep-sea technologies for sustainable use of ocean resources was cleared by the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs. The project has an estimated cost of about INR 4,077 crore (~USD 492.5 million) for five years.
