The report identifies the key trends that will define the future growth trajectory of the global gas sensors market. The use of wireless gas sensors in various applications is heavily influencing the way products are designed in this market. Wireless gas sensors are suited in hazardous or extreme applications as they can remotely transmit data to a computer or smartphone. Moreover, smart gas sensors that can be integrated with different devices or can analyze data are catching on in the market. Although gas sensors have traditionally been widely used in the oil and gas and manufacturing industries, their use is now also being observed in the automotive industry. This trend is underscored by the fact that automotive companies are having to comply with increasingly stringent safety mandates.

Gas sensors identify and measure the presence of gases such as oxygen, nitrogen oxide, carbon monoxide, and carbon dioxide. However, TMR's analysts state that the demand for CO2 sensors could witness a downslide because of a dip in CO2 emissions in the recent past. Speaking of areas within the gas sensors market where companies should focus, a TMR analyst said, "The demand trends clearly point toward more compact and low-energy-consuming sensors that offer versatility. Hybrid vehicles that make use of hydrogen as a source of clean energy also demand a particular variety of gas sensors – an opportunity that can be harnessed by existing players."

The report segments the global gas sensors market on the basis of gas sensing technology into: Electrochemical, photoionization detectors (PID), semiconductor, metal oxide semiconductor/solid-state semiconductor, infrared (IR), catalytic, and others. Consumers across the world prefer using gas sensors that are based on semiconductor and electrochemical technologies as they provide a very desirable combination of accuracy and cost effectiveness in detecting combustible or toxic
