The components based on conventional metal-oxide semiconductors face severe drawbacks, such as low selectivity, as they are dependent on surface chemistry.  The pitfalls associated with these semiconductor sensors are slow recovery or a dosimeter-type response and sensitivity to humidity. Technical issues such as the inability to detect gas leakages, inability to detect gases at certain temperature levels, and producing false alarms are restraining the overall market growth.

Low costs and high efficiency of the electrochemical gas sensor market which was valued at over USD 820 million in 2017 will drive the demand over the forecast period. These components are predominantly preferred in several applications due to their capability of accurately sensing combustible and toxic gases. These components are being extensively adopted across industrial plants, particularly in refineries and confined spaces owing to their ability to measure toxic gases having relatively low concentrations. The technology is also widely adopted across manufacturing plants as it helps in detecting a wide range of gases.

The automotive gas sensor market is will reach over USD 1 billion due to an extensive use of these components to meet stringent emission levels and minimize vehicle energy consumption levels. Gas sensors also play a vital role as they offer emission management systems and provide real-time feedback to vehicular fuel, thus reducing the discrepancy between emissions observed in factory tests. Moreover, stringent government regulations across the globe to protect the environment are playing a crucial role in implementing these components in automotive vehicles for both, diesel and gasoline systems.

The carbon dioxide gas sensor market will grow significantly in the future due to its widespread use in the bulk food storage industry. These components keep a check on the admissible levels of CO2 in the storage units while detecting early food spoilage. Moreover, the growing penetration of CO2 components in automotive applications will safeguard drivers from the emission of hazardous gases. These sensors are used for monitoring indoor air quality as well as industrial process control.

The major players in the gas sensor market comprise City Technology Ltd., Dynament Ltd., Alphasense, Amphenol Advanced Sensors, Bosch Sensortec GmbH, and Figaro Engineering, Inc. Manufacturers in the market are shifting their focus to smart sensors and wireless technologies, which are anticipated to be cost-efficient. Some of the other strategies adopted by the manufacturers are product developments that include the development of nano-structured gas sensing materials, precise nanotubes, nanoparticles, and nanowires that enable high sensitivity.
