US demand for chemical sensors is projected to grow 8.9 percent annually through 2014. Biosensors will remain the largest product type, while electrochemical and optical sensors grow the fastest. The medical market will remain the largest end use, while the industrial market will see the fastest gains.
This study analyzes the $4 billion US chemical sensor industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1999, 2004 and 2009, and forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by product (e.g., biosensors, electrochemical sensors, optical sensors, pellistor/catalytic bead sensors, semiconductor sensors), analyte (e.g., liquids and solids, gases) and market (e.g., medical, industrial, environmental monitoring).
The study also considers market environment factors, reviews chemical sensor technology, evaluates company market share and profiles 43 industry competitors, including Johnson & Johnson, Roche and Abbott Laboratories.
