While there are several market research reports published each year for sensors, some focus on specific markets like industrial, automotive or consumer and others address a single sensor category. Gas sensors are an interesting example.
In “Global Gas Sensor Market Study Report 2019,” QY Research says the global Gas Sensor market is valued at million US$ in 2018 and is expected to reach million US$ by the end of 2025, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7% during 2019-2025. The report attributes this growth to several factors including:
- The need for protection from toxic gases due to significant health issues that they can cause.
- The growth of the wearable technology segment should boost the development of the gas sensors as well.
- Improvements in technology and miniaturized wireless sensors will add to the development of the gas sensor market.
