Over 90% of the world's population live in areas that exceed World Health Organization limits on air pollution. Air pollution in the United States costs more than $200 billion annually in lost work days and hospital costs and could develop into a health and climate crisis reminiscent of those seen in China and India, a study by a global policy forum has found. The growing awareness of air pollution will be driving the demand for gas sensors.
Gas sensors have traditionally been limited to industrial leak detection and household carbon monoxide alarms, but a new wave of miniaturization and cost reduction in the chemical gas sensor industry is enabling a new environmental monitoring ecosystem, which IDTechEx analysts estimate will be worth $361 million in 2017, $2.4 billion in 2022 and over $3 billion in 2027.
Gas sensors offer many advantages over traditional reference equipment and environmental modelling techniques, in addition to direct measurement of a pollutant, sensors are far more mobile, enabling greater spatial coverage of an area, the low cost, high robustness, simple interface electronics and ease of production of these sensors make them ideal candidates for commercial environmental monitoring.
