Global Sensors for Trace Contaminant Detection in Air - Projections of CAGRs through 2022 -


The "Sensors for Trace Contaminant Detection in Air: Technologies & Market" report has been added to's offering.

Rising air pollution around the world is propelling the adoption of trace contaminant detection sensors for continuous detection, monitoring and assessment of pollutants. These air pollutants can cause a negative impact on the environment and human health. Trace contaminant detection sensors can monitor inorganic, organic, physical and biological pollutants and provide air contamination levels in real time. Rising global air pollution is a major concern and causes diseases such as lung cancer, stroke and breathing problems. According to Our World in Data, outdoor air pollution resulted in about 4.2 million deaths globally in 2016, which is a significant rise from the 3.4 million deaths report in 1990. Furthermore, greenhouse gases (GHG) which cause air pollution are also classified as air pollutants. Rising GHG emissions is a major concern.

Initiatives taken by the governing bodies around the world to control air pollution are the major force driving the adoption of sensors to monitor air contamination levels. Programs such as the National Emission Ceilings Directive (European Union), 13th Five-Year Plan on Air Pollution Prevention and Control in key regions (China), Clean Air Act (U.S.), National Clean Air Agreement (Australia) and others are aimed at improving air monitoring services and air quality. The World Health Organization has also launched the BreatheLife program, the Air Quality Monitoring Program and others to monitor and enhance the quality of air.

The scope of this report is broad and covers different types of sensor products available in the market and their potential applications. The total market revenue includes sensors (sensor modules integrated into various systems) such as electrochemical sensors, metal oxide sensors, photo-ionization detectors and others that help in the detection of trace contaminants in the air. Sensors analyzed in this report include those for trace elements and other inorganic contaminants, volatile organic compounds, biological contaminants and physical contaminants such as dust particles.
