Air quality sensors are part of air purification systems or stand-alone devices that sense and monitor pollutants in the environment. Sensors for air quality can be used in both indoor and outdoor conditions. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, with some specializing in certain characteristics and the majority focusing on components such as particulate matter, ozone, and carbon monoxide among others. Previously, air quality sensors were extremely expensive, but because of technology developments such as improvement in computational and visualization skills, they are becoming quite affordable and widely available for its customers. These sensors can be used for a variety of applications such as to measure the air quality, helping industries to detect presence of toxins in emitted smoke, and assist in bringing attention to environmental hazards that aren't visible to the human eye. The solutions used for air quality monitoring sensors are becoming not only more reliable but also faster at measuring by using the latest and most modern technologies. All these factors are expected to drive the overall air quality sensor market growth.

The major companies profiled in the air quality sensor market include Thermo Fisher Scientific, Emerson Electric, Siemens AG, Teledyne Technologies,3M Company, Honeywell International Inc, HORIBA, Ltd., TSI Incorporated, Tisch Environmental, Testo. The players have adopted various strategies including new product launches, collaborations, partnerships, mergers & acquisitions, joint ventures, agreements, and others to gain a stronghold and international presence across the world.

The air quality sensor market share is segmented based on type, sampling, application, industry vertical, and region. Based on type, the market is bifurcated into signal-gas monitoring sensor and multi-gas monitoring sensor. By sampling, it is categorized into continuous, manual, and intermittent. Based on application, it is classified into gas detection, particulate matter monitoring, outdoor air quality monitoring, indoor air quality monitoring and others. Based on industry vertical, it is divided into residential, commercial, government agencies, power plants, and others. Based on region, the market is analyzed across North America - Canada, Mexico, and U.S., Europe - UK, Germany, France, and rest of Europe, Asia-Pacific - China, India, Japan, South Korea, and rest of Asia-Pacific, LAMEA - Africa, Latin America, and Middle East.

Top Impacting Factors

The key factor driving the air quality sensor market share globally is the rise in airborne infections and deaths as its result. Rapid urbanization, as well as economic and population expansion has led to a rise in industrial activity, automobile usage, and energy consumption in cities all over the world, resulting in widespread urban air pollution. Environmental pollution has become a global concern, and state and municipal governments at all levels are paying more attention to environmental management in their territories, as well as increasing investment in pollution management and emergency service. These factors provides lucrative air quality sensor market opportunity globally.  The high cost of the product and its high maintenance are the primary restraints in the global air quality sensor market size.

Market Trends

New Product Launches to Flourish the Market

According to air quality sensor market forecast, Honeywell International Inc., a market leader in the field of electronics, launched Electronic Air Cleaners (EACs) with a new range of indoor air quality (IAQ) sensors in Nov 2020 to assist, enhance, and measure indoor air quality of commercial buildings. Honeywell EACs with UV help eliminate contaminants from the air while also providing filtration and disinfection without obstructing airflow. Whereas in Nov 2020, ENVEA, a global producer of on-line monitoring solutions for the industrial sector, released a new generation of micro-sensor based mini-stations for air quality monitoring in real-time which provides a platform for real-time monitoring of a wide variety of parameters with high precision, minimal maintenance, and low power consumption.

Rise in Number of Government Schemes and Industrial Sectors

According to air quality sensor market analysis, the rise in air pollution and global industrialization has resulted in an increase in air pollution, as well as the addition of toxins such as particulate matter. As a result of these pollutants, governments in a number of nations have enacted strict rules in their individual regions and established various policies to reduce air pollution from industrial locations. Similarly, governments of various nations such as the U.S., India, and New Zealand have mandated the businesses such as automotive, oil & gas, and power production plants to comply with such restrictions by installing particulate matter sensors to manage and monitor pollution levels. Factories can watch the air quality index surrounding their industrial units and as a result, manage their emission rates by adopting outdoor air quality monitoring systems. This enables them in adhering to standards and avoiding any legally imposed fines from air quality management agencies when pollution levels surpass appropriate standard.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Since December 2019, the COVID-19 virus has been impacting businesses all around the world. The constant rise in the number of virus-infected people has prompted governments to impose restrictions on people and commercial traffic. Manufacturing & construction sectors, school, educational institutions, retail malls, and office buildings have all had their operations temporarily halted, resulting in decreased air pollution. Factory shutdown and border closures have disrupted manufacturing, distribution, and sales in a variety of industries, ultimately halting the operations. Air pollution is being decreased all across the world as people and products travel less. Following the recovery of business processes, the need for air quality sensors is expected to increase in order to continue reducing the negative effects of air pollutants on the environment. Furthermore, as a result of COVID-19, the usage of portable air quality sensors is anticipated to rise among individuals as slowly and steadily situation is improving in various nations, therefore, lockdown is being lifting causing industries to start again and can increase traffic. For instance, according to a survey done by industry body Make UK on June 2021, the UK manufacturing sector saw output rise in the second quarter, fueled by a solid rebound in domestic and international orders.
