What Region Plays a Key Role in the Chemical Sensors Market?

“Chemical sensors will be in high demand in North America, owing to increase in vehicle production, increased research and development efforts, and the push to reduce pollution levels in the near future.” 

North America and Europe are the leading regions in terms of overall demand for chemical sensors. Adoption of chemical sensors is expected to grow rapidly in APAC over the forecast period.

The APAC chemical sensors market is likely to emerge as the fastest growing market with a double-digit CAGR over the forecast period 2015-2025.

The concerning pollution levels in China, India and other APAC countries is also driving the demand for chemical sensors.

Low chemical sensors price, flexible applications and speedy technological implementations are fuelling the demand for chemical sensors in the APAC market.

The APAC chemical sensors market forecast seems promising, owing to the rising usage of chemical sensors in industrial safety operations and environmental monitoring programs.

What are the Factors Expected to Shape the Chemical Sensors Market?

“The chemical sensors market is expected to grow, due to rising demand for chemical sensors from the oil and gas and automotive industries.”

In APAC, chemical sensors can be termed as ideal components, having analytical functions, which can help prevent the unwanted output of several processes and monitor the health of the atmosphere.

The factors impelling the onward growth of APAC market for chemical sensors include,

  • Growing usage of chemical sensors in indoor monitoring and homeland security applications.
  • Pervasive usage in the pharmaceutical, chemical, defence, security, food, biomedical, and clinical processes.
  • Integrations of chemical sponsors in electronics, computers, processing tools and novel designs of upcoming industrial machines.

The manifestation of advanced chemicals sensor technology for the production of cost-effective, miniaturised and lightweight chemical detector, capable of continuous and static measurements in the remote environment, is a latent growth factor in the APAC chemical sensors market.

On the other hand, the growth of chemical sensors market in APAC region is facing challenges that are derived from the resulting output of the use of chemical sensors. The three most crucial restraints of chemical sensors market include,

  • Selectivity

Chemical sensors are selective in nature. For example, biochemical sensors can be applied only in biochemical process, and their use in other processes can deliver inefficient output.

  • Sensitivity

Upon continuous exposure to haphazard materials and chemicals, the sensitivity of the sensors will degrade. This will result in the persisting replacement of chemical sensors, and create a despise environment for the end-users.

  • Reversibility

The design of any chemical sensor makes it unidirectional. However, the reversible chemical reactions occurring in an industrial process may alter the monitoring function and thereby, regard the chemical sensors as useless.

How is the Competitive Landscape in the Chemical Sensors Market?

The key companies shaping up the competitive landscape of chemical sensors market, including APAC region, are Abbot Laboratories, Nova Biochemical Corp., Denso Corp., Hoffmann-La Roche, NGK Spark Plug Company, Emerson Process Management, among others.

In 2015, the leading multinational sensor and semiconductor manufacturer, Austria Mikro System (commonly known as ams AG) acquired the CMOS sensors from NXP Semiconductors as a strategic measure to expand their existing environmental sensor technologies. Mergers as such illustrate the expansion of the chemical sensors market size.
