The global chemical sensors market exhibited strong growth during 2015-2020. Chemical sensors refer to various devices and instruments that are used to determine the presence, concentration and quantity of an analyte. The analyte is any molecule or element that is examined under a chemical condition. The sensors are used to transform chemical information into analytical signals and provide real-time information about a sample. The chemical information also indicates the presence of multiple chemical species in the sample. Apart from chemical species, they can also trace microorganisms using bio-compounds which have membrane components or nucleic acid similar to the sensor.
The growth of the automotive, food and beverage, and healthcare industries is the key factor driving the growth of the market. Chemical sensors are used to detect and monitor automotive and industrial emissions along with the functioning of wastewater treatment systems. In the healthcare sector, they are used in fertility systems, cancer diagnosis, portable glucose monitors, diagnosis of renal failure and alcohol and drug abuse. Furthermore, the increasing prevalence of diabetes and related diseases is also expected to increase the product demand as chemical sensors are used in the manufacturing of blood sugar testing strips. Additionally, there is a growing demand for optical chemical sensors that are utilized in vehicle cabin air quality systems, owing to the increasing sales of automobiles. This, coupled with the rising adoption rate of centralized ventilation in residential and commercial spaces, is also favoring the growth of the market. Moreover, these sensors are finding extensive application in the defense and military sector, as they aid in the detection of explosive materials. Looking forward, the global chemical sensors market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 8% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
