Historic Market Outlook for Chemical Detector

The analysis of Chemical Detector demand from 2017 to 2021 showed a historical growth rate of around 1.2% CAGR, slowdown in the growth during the historical period is owing to COVID-19 pandemic crisis which has substantially impacted the demand resulting in negative growth of the market in 2020. Recovery from the crisis in 2021 and 2022 has bolstered the growth outlook in the projected period.

In the past, reliable litmus or reaction tests were used to identify chemicals. Although reliable, this type of testing were time-consuming and need a supply of consumable testing equipment, and could only identify a small number of compounds. With the technological developments in Chemical Detector, different types of sensors can be utilized to detect hazardous chemicals at single points, provides stand-off detection or covers large areas.

Handheld scanners that can quickly find a range of substances are now possible, due to advancements in chemical detectors. Modern sensors make use of a variety of methods, including mass spectrometry, ion-mobility spectrometry, and photo ionization.

As a result, FMI’s Chemical Detector demand projection predicts a CAGR of 4.3% by 2032.
