Chemical Sensors

As Quoted In Flow Control Network

US demand for chemical sensors will grow 7.6 percent annually through 2012. Biosensors will continue to be the largest type, as the increasing number of diagnosed diabetics boosts demand for glucose test strips. Demand for chemical sensors based on emerging technologies, such as optical sensors, will see the fastest gains.

This study analyzes the $3.7 billion US chemical sensor industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1997, 2002 and 2007, and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by sensor type, (e.g,. biosensors, electrochemical, optical, pellistor/catalytic bead, semiconductor); analyte (e.g., carbohydrates, pH, oxygen reduction potential, dissolved gases, oxygen, toxic gases, combustible gases); and market.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 46 industry participants, including Johnson & Johnson, Abbott Laboratories and Bayer.
