COVID-19 Impact Analysis
The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected the gas detection equipment business and will continue to pose risks. There are numerous risks related to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 spread glbally in 2020 and continues to impact economic activity around the globe. COVID-19 caused disruption and volatility in the global capital markets and resulted in an economic slowdown during 2020. The pandemic and its associated economic uncertainty negatively impacted the gas detection equipment market in most regions and across various customers. For instance, Siemens’ portfolio of companies comprises businesses that include a broad range of customized and application-specific products, software, solutions, systems, and services for different industries, including oil & gas, mining, cement, water, marine, wind, fiber, logistics, and energy, shows a delayed response to changes in the overall economic environment due to outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic. In regards to COVID-19, governments around the world have introduced certain measures, such as travel prohibitions, shutdowns of certain businesses, bans on group events and gatherings, shelter-in-place orders, curfews, and recommendations of practicing social distancing. These restrictions have resulted in weakening activity and temporary closures of manufacturing facilities.
Gas Detection Equipment Market Dynamics
Gas detection equipment can monitor and measure a single or a mixture of gas concentrations. Gas detection equipment can be wireless (portable) or fixed. Wearable or portable gas detection equipment is usually worn on the person and triggers an alarm once it detects the gas concentration above the limit threshold. Various sensors such as ultrasonic, infrared, and electrochemical gas are integrated into it. They find applications in household activities, automobiles, refineries, and industrial facilities, among others. With the increasing emphasis on ensuring the safety of workers in various end-use industries around the world, the adoption of various protective systems such as gas detectors has been promoted. Various industry standards were put in place, along with government rules and regulations to ensure the safety and health of workers in the manufacturing industry, necessitating the requirement for gas detectors. However, the growth of the market can be hindered due to the high cost of gas detection equipment.
Government agencies worldwide make efforts to mitigate oil and methane gas emissions, in turn stimulating the growth of gas detection equipment. To monitor efficiency and safety in a range of applications, infrared gas detection sensors are widely used to detect methane leakage. It is of utmost importance to keep occupational exposure of personnel to toxic gases to acceptable levels based on industry guidelines. This forces industries to install gas detection equipment. Another important factor is the growing awareness among owners and industry workers that professional gas detection equipment plays a vital role in reducing the damage caused by methane leaks during transport, extraction of natural gas, and power generation. Further, mitigating methane emissions is considered one of the cost-effective methods for cutting global emissions. For instance, in January 2020, the Canadian government committed to reducing oil & gas methane emissions by 40%–45% below 2012 levels by 2025, thereby directly propelling the gas detection equipment market demand during the review period.
Gas detectors measure or monitor levels of toxic gases, oxygen, and combustible gases in an area as part of a safety system. These detectors normally sound an alarm and are used in confined spaces or areas where exposure to such a gas could result in a toxic exposure or fire hazard. Gas detectors are available as portable and fixed units. Gas detectors are made up of various types of gas sensors such as thermal conductivity gas sensors, MEMS pellistors, catalytic pellistors, infrared gas sensors, metal oxide gas sensors, indoor air quality sensors, and electrochemical gas sensors, the use of the mentioned sensors depend upon the application areas of gas detectors. To achieve high reproducibility and repeatability, the fabrication process to develop gas sensors becomes costly. For instance, installing multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) into the conducting layer of the sensor is a highly intensive labor job. Thus, increasing the cost of gas detection equipment due to their advantages such as high reproducibility, low response time, high sensitivity, and long-term stability.
Emerging economies like India, China, and Indonesia continuously invest in infrastructure development projects such as water treatment plants, oil & gas industries, various mining projects. Asia-Pacific is the most attractive market due to the high cash flows generated from the use of corporate infrastructure and equipment. The rise of industrial clusters, as well as the growth of FDI in all major manufacturing sectors in emerging economies such as China, India, Brazil, and Southeast Asian countries, are expected to dominate the market for gas detection equipment during the forecast period. Emerging economies focus on various foreign promoters who intend to start their business through FDI incentive programs. This will indirectly increase economic growth and strengthen industrialization. For instance, in 2020, the FDI inflow is estimated to be around USD 859 billion in the first half of the year. In addition, these countries have evolved and restructured their manufacturing policies and procedures to attract investment and enable growth. Industrialization is expected to increase the automation process to facilitate operations and improve production efficiency. Vietnam is one of the leading economies in Asia with a substantial growth rate and rapid development. The government has started investing in this sector to ensure stable growth and development in the infrastructure and manufacturing sector. This will lead to the huge development of advanced product development programs across the country. Hence, the growing scope in developing countries is an opportunity in the global gas detection equipment market.
