Gas Sensor Market Shipments to Exceed 80 Million Units by 2026: Global Market Insights, Inc.

Europe's gas sensor market revenue was over USD 400 million in 2019 and is poised to observe a substantial growth of nearly 4% through 2026 due to growing digitalization in Germany's manufacturing industry.

Global Gas Sensor Market revenue to cross $2B by 2026: GMI

​According to the latest report “Gas Sensor Market by Product (O2/Lambda Sensors, CO2 Sensors, CO Sensors, NOx Sensors), Technology (Electrochemical, Semiconductor, Solid State PID, Catalytic, Infrared), Connectivity (Wired, Wireless), Application (Consumer Electronics, Medical, Environmental, Petrochemical, Automotive, Industrial), Regional Outlook, Competitive Market Share & Forecast 2026”, by Global Market Insights, Inc., the market valuation of gas sensors will cross $2 billion by 2026. The integration of connected devices, IoT, and wireless technology with sensors to gather real-time monitoring data will positively influence the market growth.

The carbon monoxide (CO) gas sensor market will witness a growth rate of 7% from 2020 to 2026 due to its increasing adoption in medical and healthcare devices. These sensors find application in point-of-care (POC) diagnostic devices for monitoring patient health conditions. Furthermore, CO gas is highly toxic, colorless, odorless, and highly undetectable in the environment. The rising demand for safety and security will increase the deployment of CO sensors in buildings, smart homes, and industrial automation. The installation of these sensors in air monitoring systems will help in curbing exhaust emission levels and reducing air pollution.

The Photoionization Detector (PID) sensor shipments held a market share of around 20% in 2019 and are projected to register an 8% growth till 2026. The PID technology is extensively incorporated in sensors used in military applications, confined spaces, and industrial processes. These sensors are incorporated in hand-held portable instruments for instantaneous readings. PIDs are widely used for ammonia detection in material handling and are effectively integrated for controlling environmental contaminations.

The consumer electronics sector in the gas sensor market is set to expand at more than a 4% CAGR during the projected timespan, propelled by rising technological advancements with the evolution of IoT and smart devices. This has led to the popularity of wireless gas sensors that have a simpler design and can be used to analyze data in real-time. These sensors are being integrated into portable electronics, driving their demand in the consumer electronics segment. Companies are focusing on technological innovations of gas sensors, further boosting their adoption in smartphone applications.

Europe's gas sensor market revenue was over USD 400 million in 2019 and is poised to observe a substantial growth of nearly 4% through 2026 due to growing digitalization in Germany's manufacturing industry. Increasing focus of governments on energy-efficiency and emission control standards has resulted in the proliferation of these sensors in the European automotive industry. The growing chemical sector in Europe will create a high growth opportunity for the market. In chemical plants, gas sensors are used to monitor the safety parameters of toxic & flammable gases, which are produced while manufacturing chemicals. The adoption of Continuous Emission Monitoring Systems (CEMS) for gas emission analysis at plant sites will propel the demand for gas sensors in the region.
