The global volatile organic compound gas sensor market size was valued at USD 141.7 million in 2018 and is expected to register a CAGR of 4.0% from 2019 to 2025. These sensors are used for measuring the concentration of various gases in their vicinity, such as ethene, benzene, methylene chloride, propane, acetone, and ethanol among others. Increasing awareness about air pollution is one of the key opportunity drivers for the market. The demand is expected to continue rising owing to features such as the detection of explosive or toxic gases at safe distances. At present, increasing awareness about indoor and outdoor air quality is driving the demand in industrial as well as private environmental monitoring. The efficiency of VOC gas sensors used in industrial applications is very low and consume more power at high temperature. Thus, the need for sensors with high accuracy and low power consumption is a critical driver for the current industrial sensor market.
