Asia-Pacific Gas Analyzer, Sensor & Detector Market Forecast to Grow at 7.3% CAGR till 2018

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Gas Analyzer, Sensor & Detector Market by Technologies, Systems & End-User Industries - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2018" report to their offering.

Globally, the Asia-Pacific region dominated the global GASD market revenue in 2012. U.S., Japan, China, U.K. and Germany shared 45.0% of the total GASD revenues in 2012. Asia-Pacific's GASD market for end-use applications is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.3% from 2013 to 2018.

'Gas Analyzer, Sensor & Detector Market - By Technologies (Electrochemical, Infrared, Metal Oxide Semiconductor, Catalytic, Laser & Others), By Systems (Fixed & Portable) & By End-User Industries - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2018'

Gas analyzers, sensors and detectors (GASD) are safety devices used in the industrial, commercial, medical and several other industries. Generally, these devices play a major role in providing safety and to avoid fire outbreaks by continuously analyzing and monitoring the concentration of gases in different end user industries. Hence, gas analyzers, sensors and detectors are used to measure and monitor the concentration and quantity of a single or multi gas in the mixture of gases. Based on the working principle technology, the devices can be classified into Electrochemical, Infrared, Catalytic, Zirconia, Paramagnetic, Laser, Metal Oxide Semiconductor (MOS), Photo Ionization Detection (PID) and others. Each technology has its own unique features with respective detection range and application. The demand for GASD devices is influenced by growing awareness of poisonous and combustible gases in the environment and government regulations to provide human safety.

Gas analyzer is an assembly that consists of sensors and display devices, where sensors can detect particulate gases and the detected signal can be displayed on the monitor. Gas analyzers can analyze the physical parameters of particular gases such as pressure, temperature, flow rate and concentration.Sensors and detectors are fundamentally the same, however a sensor can only sense a gas in the mixture of gases whereas a detector can also raise an alarm to the operators in the area to alert them about the leakage or of any other threat. Gas analyzers, sensors and detectors can be either fixed or portable, based on the end user interest. A fixed device is for permanent and continuous analysis, mostly used by big industries where continuous monitoring is the prime factor. Portable devices are used for periodic analysis where rental devices are used.
