Rising adoption of air monitoring systems in the manufacturing sector will boost the demand for CO2 sensors

The carbon dioxide (CO2) gas sensor market held a revenue share of over 20% and is anticipated to witness around 4% growth till 2026. The growth is majorly attributed to increasing adoption of air filter systems equipped with CO2 sensors in the manufacturing industry. Carbon dioxide gas sensors are also used in the food & beverage sector to enable the detection of spoilage in food in the manufacturing & storage areas of processing plants.
 

Governments from several nations are inclined toward the introduction of new environmental policies & protocols that focus on the reduction of global warming and control of gas emissions in the manufacturing processes. For example, in 2018, the European Union’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) introduced the Paris Agreement, which focuses on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by around 40% until 2030. This will drive the demand for CO2 monitoring systems & filters across various manufacturing plants.

The electrochemical segment accounted for 30% market share in 2019. The electrochemical technology can easily detect toxic gas concentration with the oxidation of target gas in the electrode and enable the measurement of resultant current. This will boost the demand for electrochemical technology in gas sensors majorly from the mining sector. It will also increase their demand in the detection of landfilled gases and control emission of harmful gases.
 

According to the Mine Safety and Health Administration of the U.S., the number of fatalities that occurred in the U.S. in 2019 was 24 compared to 29 fatalities that occurred in 2015. This is majorly due to rising concern toward workers’ safety and an increasing trend toward industrial automation, further accelerating the adoption of gas sensors in the mining sector. Market leaders are continuously involved in the development of sensors with innovative technologies to gain high competitiveness in the industry.
 

Rising innovation by industry leaders to integrate wireless connectivity into gas sensors

The wireless connectivity segment dominated around 70% gas sensor market share in 2019. These sensors offer easy installation with high scalability & flexibility features, increasing their adoption in a wide range of industries including manufacturing, petrochemical, and oil & gas. In the oil & gas sector, these sensors enable continuous monitoring of gases through remote location & can be operated through base stations and aid to reduce the chances of leakage & explosion of hazardous gases.
 

Major manufacturers including Siemens, Honeywell International, Inc., and Emerson Electric, Co. Ltd. are also continuously involved in the integration of wireless technology to improve the performance of their sensor offerings. In August 2019, Emerson Electric Co., Ltd. announced the launch of its two new wireless gas sensors for the measurement of oxygen and carbon monoxide in pipelines, remote wellhead, and other plant facilities.
