Report Description

The COVID-19 outbreak has led to business shutdowns, unemployment, and unprecedented drops in the gross domestic product (GDP) across many countries. The shift in demands for several electronics end applications due to the COVID-19 has significantly hit the sensors market. However, authorities and key players are working hard to maintain the current market growth and preparing for industry’s evolution post-crisis.

Gas sensors are extremely useful in identifying harmful gases present in the environment. They are equipped with a highly sensitive sensing element powered through connecting leads and the alarm sound informs people about the severity of the gas leak. Gas sensors are used to identify a variety of gases such as toxic gases, combustible gases, and flammable gases in various industries such as process and manufacturing, chemicals, metals, electricity and power, food and beverage, and transportation.

Increasing adoption of HVAC systems and rising air pollution levels has accelerated the global demand for gas sensors from critical industries to monitor the air quality. Governmental focus on industrial hygiene and safety is expected to create new opportunities for the manufacturers of gas sensors. Apart from this, the development of smart cities across the globe provides an impetus to the market growth.

Government Regulations to Reduce Hazardous Gas Emissions in Various Industrial Verticals to Drive the Market Growth

Rapidly expanding semiconductor industry, development of high-end features in sensor devices, and technological advancements are fuelling the demand for gas sensors globally. Government enforced regulations on industries and mining, and other activities to reduce emissions are projected to accelerate the market growth. Apart from this, rising demand for continuous and real-time monitoring is subsequently increasing the adoption of miniaturized photoionization detectors (PIDs) and non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) sensors for CO2 or combustible gas.   

Risk of Leakages in Emerging Industries and Factories in the APAC Region to Drive the Market Growth

High cost of gas sensors was already a restricting factor, which is further escalated by the ongoing pandemic that has caused disruption in the supply chain. This issue is further accompanied by innovations and low product differentiation. However, its advanced features such as wireless capabilities and miniaturization, coupled with improved communication, enable various devices and machines to inform about leaks.

In 2012, carbon monoxide alarms became mandatory in all households in Northern Ireland, after 123 people were admitted to hospital due to a deadly household gas leak. With rapid industrialization, the risks of hazardous gas leakages are significantly high, which is why the market is expected to gain rapid speed in countries such as the U.S., China, India, and Germany. Poor working conditions and improper management in industries and mines in low economic countries offer lucrative growth opportunities to market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on Gas Sensors Market: Segmentation

Electrochemical Gas Sensors Speedy Response Towards Gas Leak to Drive the Segment Growth

The electrochemical gas sensing technology segment dominates the gas sensors market owing to its fewer power requirements and less vulnerability to environmental changes. Electrochemical sensor’s ability to improve indoor air quality, control the emission of harmful gases, and detect landfill gases provides an impetus to the segment growth. Rising demand to measure gases such as methane, carbon dioxide, and volatile organic compounds (VOC), such as acetylene, benzene, and butane, accelerates the infrared gas sensors segment growth. These sensors are primarily used in chemical and petrochemical and oil and gas industries owing to their fast speed of response in the case of leakage of combustible gases.

Medical and Healthcare Segment to Grow with the Highest CAGR during the Forecast Period

The medical and healthcare segment is projected to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Advantages of gas sensors such as versatility, detection of oxygen concentration and other harmful gases, and numerous patient care capabilities is driving market demand. There is an increase in demand for multifunctional medical equipment during the 2019 coronavirus pandemic. The demand is expected to decline in the next few months as hospitals are postponing purchases to improve liquidity. However, protection of patients and hospital infrastructure from leakages of harmful gases that are directly related to the management especially during the COVID-19 crisis, is expected to witness a limited range of market adoption.

Strict regulations and working conditions imposed by the government to ensure occupational health in light of the pandemic and wide usage of gas detection for the detection and monitoring of combustible and toxic gases drives the segment growth. Similarly, rising investments in medical electronics, aerospace equipment, power and energy products, as well as upgrades to lighting solutions, provides an impetus to the segment growth. Other sectors such as automotive and transportation, building and construction, oil, gas and chemicals and food and beverage are also anticipated to contribute significant shares to the market growth
