The gas sensors market is expected to be worth USD 1.01 Billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 6.22% between 2016 and 2022. The major drivers for the growth are increasing government’s safety regulations at the workplace in industries and growing demand for wireless gas sensors.

Of all the major applications, the oil & gas and medical applications hold the major share of the gas sensors market. The consumer electronics application is expected to grow at the highest rate in the market during the forecast period, followed by the building automation application. Among the consumer electronic applications, the smartphones and tablets segment is the largest contributor to the overall market. The growing adoption of smartphones users in the world has led to research and development of ntegration different types of sensors into smartphones.  Gas sensor integrated in smartphones would help in detection of gases for air quality applications which would basically drive the gas sensor market in near future.

The increasing demand for reliable, high-performance, and low-cost gas sensors has led to the development of new technologies such as the micro and nanotechnology, which provide the benefits of miniaturization, low power consumption, and mass production among others. The printed gas sensor is one of the latest trends prevailing in the industry which is expected to have high growth potential during the forecast period. The gas sensor market is expected to face significant challenges over the next six to eight years period as it would witness the evolution of these technologies.

Gas Sensors Market

North America held the largest market share; the market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest rate. In APAC, the huge demand for automobiles, consumer electronics from countries such as China, India, and South Korea among others is driving the gas sensors market.

However, the challenge to meet stringent performance requirements for advance sensor application is limiting the growth of this market. One of the other key restraining factors for this market is the technical issues such as decreasing the size and energy consumption which restricts the growth of the gas sensor market. City Technology (U.S.) is an important player in the gas sensors market in 2015. The major strategy adopted by this company is new product development to expand its presence in the gas sensor market.

The companies that are profiled in the report are City Technology Ltd (U.K.), Dynament Ltd.(U.K.) Alphasense (U.K.), Amphenol Advanced Sensors (U.S.), Bosch Sensortec GmbH (Germany), ams AG (Austria), SenseAir AB (Sweden), FIGARO Engineering Inc. (Japan), MEMBRAPOR AG (Switzerland), Cambridge CMOS sensors (U.K.), Sensirion AG (Switzerland), and MSA (U.S.).
