Gas Sensor Market Size and Research Overview


Globally, the size of the Gas Sensor Market was valued at USD 1123.3 Million in 2020 and is expected to grow to USD 1795.9 Million by 2027 driven by the growing demand for gas sensors in smart cities and increasing adoption in HVAC systems.


It is a device that detects the presence or concentration of gases. By the concentration of gases in the background, the Gas Sensor Market displays a change in resistance of the material used in the sensor, which is used to measure the output voltage. The gas concentration is detected Based on this change in voltage value, the type. It can determine volatile compounds like air quality and gases. The sensors can also detect and measure the concentration of gas and can change the attention of an analyte gas into an electronic or electrical signal. These are used in various industries ranging from medicine, defence & military, energy, aerospace, etc. Monitoring air pollution, chemical processes, and exhaust from combustion engines are the various applications for gas sensor installation. The enhancement in the use of gas sensors in the defence & military industry and the emerging demand for gas sensors in consumer electronics and the favourable government regulations regarding the use of gas sensors are the primary drivers of the market. They will push the market forward in the forecast period. The optical gas sensor market forecast is showcasing substantial growth.



  • For instance, on Sep. 06, 2022, Laser Spectroscopy and Sensing Laboratory at Anhui University, China, announced that their researchers have developed a novel gas sensing method based on fiber optical sensing that can be used for simultaneous multi-gas detection.


The laser spectroscopy gas sensing technology is used in several sectors, including biomedical diagnostics, ocean & Mars exploration, and climate change. The new multi-gas sensor system comprises data collection, system control, and optical modules to measure ambient air conditions. The laser absorption spectroscopy sensor can successfully detect ambient CH4 and CO2 gases using a single detector with no time lag.


Global Gas Sensor Market Trends, By Technology Gas Sensor Market

Based on technology, the Gas Sensors Market has been classified as electrochemical, solid state/metal oxide, semiconductor, infrared, others, catalytic, photoionization detectors, laser. The others segment accounted for the largest market share in 2019, with a Gas Sensor Market value of USD 489.6 million during the forecast period. The solid state/metal oxide semiconductor segment held the second-largest share. The photoionization detectors (PIDs) are gas detectors used for the detection of various organic compounds. The catalytic gas sensors are used for measuring concentrations of combustible gases for the prevention of explosive accidents within industrial and domestic environments. The infrared gas sensors manufactured by using infrared light, an optical filter to select the proper wavelength, and an optical, infrared receiver. The laser-based gas sensor is used for quantifying and detecting polluting gases, which include methane and carbon dioxide. The other segment consists of different technologies, which include Zirconia, Holographic, and others.


Growing demand for gas sensor in smart cities and increasing adoption in HVAC systems are factors expected to drive the gas sensor market during the forecast period. However, high development costs of advanced gas sensors, scalability, and reliability issues in deployment of sensors in system on chip are responsible to restrain the electrochemical vs optical gas sensor marke growth during the forecast period. The applications in industrial hygiene is expected to create new opportunities for the manufacturers of gas sensors.


Covid-19 Impact on Gas Sensor Market



  • Since the COVID-19 outbreak, people have become more cautious about the air they breathe, inside and outdoors. It is believed that aerosol transmission, as monitored by exhaled CO2, is associated with the spread of COVID-19, making gas sensors even more relevant. The COVID-19 aftereffect was much more rewarding as the theory of monitoring carbon dioxide to lower the coronavirus threat emerged. 

  • Around Nov. 2020, there came a proven theory stating that carbon dioxide levels in buildings correlate strongly with the airborne spread of infection. Therefore, CO2 monitors could help mitigate the coronavirus threat. Many gas sensor companies started to look for a way to utilize this opportunity to their best. 


Another potential application of gas sensors came up by the end of Jan. 2021 in COVID vaccine storage. Gas detection can play a causal role in deploying the vaccine setups to fight coronavirus. The vaccine requires storage and transportation in sealed containers maintained at -70°C due to its mRNA (Messenger RNA) molecule technology. To maintain such a low temperature, dry ice (frozen carbon dioxide/CO2) is used.  

However, at above -78°C temperatures, CO2 sublimates, becoming gaseous and potentially dangerous. Therefore, CO2 detection solutions are expected to be deployed at all stages of the deep freeze delivery chain. This further presage that gas sensors would witness immense market prominence.

Gas Sensor Market Dynamics



  • On Aug. 05, 2022, researchers at the University of Alabama announced the development of an ultrasensitive optical sensing instrument for broad medical science uses. The device would broadly benefit in the early prediction of earthquakes, monitoring of mass destruction weapons, glacier motion detection for climate change research, and acoustic medical diagnosis.
