Chemical Sensors

A continued rebound in light vehicle production, along with the increasing use of advanced, higher cost UEGO sensors to improve vehicle fuel efficiency and performance, will drive advances.

US demand to rise 4.9% annually through 2017

Chemical sensor demand in the US will increase nearly five percent per year to $1.9 billion in 2017. A continued rebound in light vehicle production, along with the increasing use of advanced, higher cost universal exhaust gas oxygen (UEGO) sensors to improve vehicle fuel efficiency and performance, will drive advances. Growth will also be supported by healthy increases in medical chemical sensor demand as the aging of the baby boomer generation leads to above average growth in the diagnosis of diabetes and other chronic conditions. More broadly, gains across the entire industry will be supported by lower average prices and improved chemical sensor technology.

Motor vehicle market to offer best opportunities

Changes within the motor vehicle industry will have the greatest impact on chemical sensor demand going forward. The increased use of gasoline direct injection and turbocharged engines by vehicle manufacturers in an effort to comply with federal corporate average fuel economy requirements will necessitate the expanded use of higher cost UEGO sensors that allow engines to achieve both higher performance and better fuel efficiency. The shift in product mix toward the higher cost oxygen sensors, the increased adoption of cabin air quality sensors, and robust increases in nitrogen oxide and ammonia sensor demand due to a strong rebound in medium and heavy duty truck production will all support strong gains in the motor vehicle and chemical sensors markets.

Growth in chemical sensor demand will also be supported by the aging of the baby boomer generation and by above average increases in new diabetes diagnoses that will continue to drive demand for portable blood glucose monitors in the medical market. Rising medical chemical sensor demand will also reflect the development of new applications and the health care industry’s increased reliance on testing and benchmarks as a means of not only improving patient care, but also reining in rising costs.

Optical chemical sensors among fastest growing types

Optical chemical sensor demand will rise at a strong pace. Increased use of demand control ventilation in commercial properties and greater adoption of cabin air quality systems in motor vehicles will drive gains. Acceleration in chemical sensor demand growth in most environmental monitoring applications due to an expanding economy and the ongoing tightening of air and water quality standards will also support advances. However, even faster growth for optical sensors will be limited by declines in automobile emissions testing due to the falling number of vehicles that need to be tested via the tailpipe.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $1.5 billion US chemical sensor industry. It presents historical demand data for 2002, 2007 and 2012, and forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by product (e.g., electrochemical sensors, optical sensors, semiconductor sensors, pellistor/catalytic bead sensors), analyte (gases, liquids, solids) and market (e.g., industrial, environmental monitoring, medical, defense and homeland security).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 39 industry competitors, including Bosch, NGK Spark Plug and Delphi Automotive.
