North America Chemical Sensors Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.03% during the forecast period 2021-2026. In the chemical sensors market, North America has the greatest share. Advances will be fueled by a prolonged recovery in light vehicle manufacturing, as well as growing usage of advanced, higher cost universal exhaust gas oxygen sensors to increase vehicle fuel economy and performance. Increased demand for medicinal chemical sensors will also help the industry grow.

Key Highlights

  • The capacity of chemical sensors to analyze the chemical composition of various materials is driving their adoption. Chemical sensing arrays and higher-order orthogonal sensors are two major industry developments. Chemical sensors are projected to expand in popularity due to their low cost and portability.
  • Aside from environmental concerns, the use of chemical sensors for analytes in chemical industrial processes is gaining traction. Sensors are being used as advanced tools in the defense sector, research labs, and healthcare operations, which is driving the market.
  • The rising population and growing medical concerns are expected to result in a significant increase in the use of these sensors to heal illnesses. This will increase demand for sensors used in a variety of clinical applications, such as blood glucose monitoring, and will aid in the development of pharmaceutical applications.
  • The COVID-19 epidemic has slowed the growth of several sectors, including automobiles, oil and gas, and others. Chemical-based sensors are most often used in the oil and gas sector. Many existing and planned projects across the oil and gas sector are encountering issues in terms of project planning and execution as a result of the COVID-19 epidemic, leading to a diminished contribution of chemical-based sensors.

Key Market Trends

Rapid Growing Adoption of Chemical Sensors in Medical

  • Sensors are devices that detect physical, chemical, and biological signals and allow for the measurement and recording of such signals. They've been employed in a variety of sectors, including medical, research, environmental monitoring, and automated production. A chemical sensor, for example, is used to detect the constituent and concentration of bodily fluids such as Ca+ concentration, PH value, glucose concentration, and so on. Antigen, enzyme, antibody, DNA, RNA, hormone, and microorganism are all detected by the biosensor.
  • Disease like Lung cancer is the most common cancer-related mortality in the world. The prognosis and therapy of a patient are determined by cancer's stage, histology, and genetic alterations. Cross-reactive chemical sensor nanoarrays were used to identify volatile biomarkers in breath samples and the headspace of in-vitro lung cancer cell lines.
  • Furthermore, absorption and fluorescence are the most common physical phenomena utilized in optical chemical sensing; however, chemical luminescence, Raman scattering, and plasmon resonance have also been used. The intensity of the light is directly regulated by the parameter being researched (which possesses optical characteristics) or by a chemical transducer whose optical properties fluctuate with the concentration of the parameter under examination in optical sensors.

Beneficial Usage of Chemical Sensors in Wide-ranging Industries

  • Strong consumer demand, along with purchasing power parity, is boosting underlying demand patterns in the automobile industry in the United States, which is, in turn, impacting the expansion of chemical sensors in this industry. Enhanced usage of sensor and measuring technologies in the automobile industry has resulted in improved engine performance, increased energy economy, and lower pollution emissions.
  • A novel air quality sensor for automotive climate control has been developed. The chemical sensor is intended for use in air conditioning systems with a charcoal filter and an air intake flap. NOx and CO are the most important markers for detecting air pollution.
  • Chemical sensors with high sensitivity are required to manage automobile combustion engines effectively. Various types of ceramic lambda probes for oxygen monitoring are well established for both gasoline and diesel applications. Interest in monitoring new exhaust gas species continues to develop in the face of stricter pollution laws and on-board diagnostics. As a result of this advancement, new generations of exhaust gas sensors are being developed, particularly for diesel applications.

Competitive Landscape

North America Chemical Sensors Market is partially fragmented. Some of the major players in the market are Honeywell International Inc., Denso Corporation, ABB Ltd., Siemens AG, General Electric Co., and others. Some of the strategic initiatives made in this sector are:

  • In June 2021, General Electric is developing a Compact Vapor Chemical Agent Detector (CVCAD) that will give first responders an early warning of the presence of harmful chemicals in all weather and field circumstances.
  • In June 2021, Under the Pentagon's Compact Vapor Chemical Agent Detector (CVCAD) program, Teledyne FLIR, a division of Teledyne Technologies Incorporated, was awarded a contract to build the first mass-wearable chemical detector for US troops. The firm received an initial investment of US$ 4.0 million.
