Gas Leakage Sensors and Detectors: Market Analysis and Trends


Manufacturers are always looking to invest in products and services that will continue to be in demand in the long run. This is especially true for safety items which become mandatory in many end-use settings.

Gas leak detection technology, ever since its inception, has evolved constantly in terms of technical improvements and modifications. As the name suggests, these products are used to detect leakage of highly inflammable gaseous substances to avoid haphazard incidents.

Gas leak detectors are no luxury commodity, these are necessary installations for establishments, such as large-scale industries in manufacturing, hospitality and chemical production, which use gas for carrying out their operations. Gas leak detectors are also used in the automotive industry, as manufacturing of vehicles entails the use of various gaseous substances.

Gas leak detectors have also become common house-hold safety commodity across the globe. Health is always a primary factor whether its home or workplace and gas leak detectors are playing an important role in reducing fire accidents, air poisoning, and oxygen deficiency.

A gas leak detector indicates gas leakage, volume of leakage, type of gas and issues warning signals in case of leakages. However, the concept of gas detectors or gas sensors is still new as compared to other conventional safety designs.

Demand for gas leak detectors and sensors can be broadly categorised into residential and commercial. Although of utmost importance, gas leak detectors are yet to gain widespread adoption due to low awareness and high initial cost of investment.

On the basis of technology, gas leak detectors can be categorised into infrared imaging, ultrasonic, infrared point, electrochemical, semiconductor and holographic systems. Gas leak detectors are capable of providing key information on the various parameters of leakage, including distance, volume, nature, adhesiveness, and types. They are designed and manufactured in both fixed and portable editions — fixed gas leak detectors largely cater to the commercial segment, whereas portable editions are common in the residential segment.
