New Report Analyzes Global Market for Gas Sensors, Detectors, and Analyzers

Research and Markets has announced the addition of Frost & Sullivan's new report "Global Gas Sensors, Detectors, and Analyzers Markets 2013" to their offering.

Global Gas Sensors, Detectors, and Analyzers Markets 2013: Increasing Awareness on Safety to Lead to a Greater Demand for Gas Sensors and Detectors

Market for gas sensors, detectors, and analyzers exceeded $2.0 billion in total and is expected to grow further in the future. The global market for gas detection is projected to reach $3.3 billion by the 2018 at a CAGR of 4.3 percent. Legislation and public concerns regarding monitoring of gas leaks and emissions stimulated market growth. In addition, the increasing awareness on safety among end users led to a greater demand for gas sensors and detectors. Increasing enforcement of the occupational health and safety regulations and government bodies is an important driver for the sales of gas sensors, detectors, and analyzers.

Definition and Market Segment Analysis

Gas Sensors are sensing elements that sense gas. Fixed gas detectors are designed to be wall mounted and provide protection against dangerous atmospheres for much larger areas than their portable counterparts. In most circumstances, fixed detectors are part of a larger safety system; they work in tandem with a number of other fixed detectors, constantly monitoring an area. Portable detectors are detectors that can be carried by workers from place to place so that atmospheres may be tested in different areas of a workplace.
