Gas Sensor, Detector and Analyzer Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.8% during the forecast period (2021 - 2026). The market has become an integral part of several industries in recent years. This is majorly due to its effective contribution in preventing disasters related to gas leakages and explosions. Hence, the demand for gas analyzers, sensors, and detectors is expected to grow at a significant rate, during the forecast period.
  • The proliferation of handheld devices has led to developments in the field of gas sensors, detector, and analyzer, which has considerably widened the scope of application across multiple end-user segments.
  • Stringent government regulations have made improvements in the efficiency of combustion within the vehicle to limit the emission of harmful pollutants. This has increased the adoption of gas sensors and detectors, thereby, gaining application in providing real-time feedback to emission management systems of the automobile.
  • The costs of production for gas sensors and detectors have been steadily rising due to recent technological changes. While the market incumbents have been able to adapt to these changes, new entrants and mid-range manufacturers face considerable challenges.
  • The pandemic has resulted a constrained growth in sectors such as automotive, oil and gas, and chemicals, building and construction and others as well as manufacturing of ventilators, respirators, and other medical device/equipment necessary in critical care of patients.
  • In June 2020, The World Health Organization (WHO) has delivered 20 arterial-blood gas (ABG) analysis devices to the Islamic Republic of Iran to support the country's fight against COVID-19. This shipment, which was funded by the Government of Japan, is the second of 2 medical aid deliveries, including a whole of 75 ABG analyzers.

Key Market Trends

Oil & Gas Industry to have the Highest Adoption Rate for Gas Analyzers
  • The presence of oxygen in the gas sample determines that there is a leak in the pressurized pipeline system. The continuous and undetected leak may worsen the situation while impacting on operational flow efficiency of the pipeline. Moreover, the presence of gases, such as hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and carbon dioxide (CO2), in the pipeline system reacting with oxygen can combine and form a corrosive and destructive mixture that can deteriorate pipeline wall inside out.
  • In the oil and gas industry, protecting a pressurized pipeline from corrosion and leaks and minimizing the downtime are few of the crucial responsibilities in the industry. According to the NACE (National Association for Corrosion Engineers), the oil and gas industry suffers the cost of over USD 1.6 billion per year due to corrosion alone.
  • Mitigating such expensive costs is one of the drivers for adopting gas analyzer for preventive actions in the industry. Gas analyzer helps in monitoring leaks for extending the life of pipeline systems by detecting the presence of such gases effectively.
  • Additionally, there are many ongoing and upcoming projects in the industry, with huge investments toward expanding production. For instance, the upcoming project, Power of Siberia Pipeline, in Russia involves the construction of a 3,968 KM gas pipeline from Sakha to the Pacific Port of Vladivostok, with an estimated capacity of 38 billion cubic meters per year. It will cost over USD 17.5 billion. Such projects are expected to continue during the forecast period, which will fuel the demand for gas analyzers.

North America Market for Gas Analyzer Estimated to Grow Significantly
  • Modern gas analysis is becoming more crucial in the context of energy generation and consumption. According to the 2019 report on energy consumption by BP, North America is one of the largest producers of energy, including, coal, renewable energy, and electricity, and the region accounts for 10.2%, 9.6%, and 20.5%, respectively, of the global production.
  • The United States is also focusing on increasing its energy generation capacity, and the American government is investing for such projects. For instance, in July 2019, US DOE (Department of Energy) announced the funding of USD 16 million for 14 tribal energy infrastructure deployment projects. They also announced their plan to develop an environmental impact statement (EIS) to study the impacts of building a versatile nuclear test reactor in the United States.
  • The EPA has also mandated the use of gas detectors in the mining industry. USA-based Carroll Technologies Group is a pioneer in offering handheld gas detectors for the mining industry. One of the products is Mine Safety Appliances (MSA) Altair 4X Detector, which alerts the miner within 15 seconds of detection.
  • Unfortunately, Ammonia leaks are on the rise due to the increased use of natural refrigerants over fluorinated gas counterparts and due to population growth, which has led to the need for more cold storage. In the face of this mounting concern to ensure worker safety, the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration (IIAR) has updated its standards for the safe regulation of this dangerous gas. Headquartered in the United States, IIAR is the world’s leading advocate for the safe, reliable, and efficient use of ammonia.
  • The IIAR-2A standard, which has been in effect for several years, requires at least two ammonia detectors in a machinery room to monitor leaks. Also, safely designed ammonia refrigeration systems must have at minimum one audible and one visual alarm placed in the room or area around the ammonia engine or machinery. The audible alarm is required to be 15dBA (decibels measured in the A-scale) above the ambient sound pressure level (SPL) and 5dBA above the maximum SPL in the area where the alarm is present.

Competitive Landscape

The competitive landscape of the global gas analyzer, sensor, and detector market is fragmented due to the presence of many players across the globe. Currently, some of the prominent companies are developing products across the detector, as well as the analyzer segment having application across clinical assaying, environmental emission control, explosive detection, agricultural storage, and shipping, along with workplace hazard monitoring.
  • September 2020: In a paper published in ScienceDirect, research are being done on breath analysis which is an attractive strategy holding tremendous potential to achieve non-implantable physical health management enabled by flexible humidity sensors for breathing behaviors related disease monitoring and chemiresistive gas sensors for early disease diagnosis.
  • November 2020: There are increasing scientific evidence suggesting that long-range aerosol-based transmission might play an important role. How to assess and control the aerosol concentration are becoming the most critical measures for infection control. Due to the close link of the indoor CO2 concentration and aerosol density, using CO2 gas sensors to monitor the indoor environment can be an efficient method to control the COVID-19 outbreak. The German government is among the first to invest in this technology, installing CO2 gas sensors in schools. These sensors indicate when the air in the room is unhealthily stale. Even , The Federation of European Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning Associations (REHVA) has also published guidance for schools to install a CO2 monitoring system with traffic light indication.
