Rising air pollution around the world is propelling the adoption of trace contaminant detection sensors for continuous detection, monitoring and assessment of pollutants. These air pollutants can cause a negative impact to the environment and human health. Trace contaminant detection sensors can monitor inorganic, organic, physical and biological pollutants and provide air contamination levels in real time. Rising global air pollution is a major concern and causes diseases such as lung cancer, stroke and breathing problems. According to Our World in Data, outdoor air pollution resulted in about 4.2 million deaths globally in 2016, which is a significant rise from the 3.4 million deaths report in 1990. Further, greenhouse gases (GHG) which cause air pollution are also classified as air pollutants. Rising GHG emissions is a major concern. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, global GHG emissions are expected to increase from REDACTED MtCO2e in 2015 to about REDACTED MtCO2e by the end of 2030.

Initiatives taken by the governing bodies around the world to control air pollution are the major force driving the adoption of sensors to monitor air contamination levels. Programs such as the National Emission Ceilings Directive (European Union), 13th Five-Year Plan on Air Pollution Prevention and Control in key regions (China), Clean Air Act (U.S.), National Clean Air Agreement (Australia) and others are aimed at improving air monitoring services and air quality. The World Health Organization has also launched the BreatheLife program, the Air Quality Monitoring Program and others to monitor and enhance the quality of air.

BCC Research estimates that the global market for sensors for trace air contaminant detection will grow from REDACTED in 2017 to REDACTED by 2022, yielding a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of REDACTED. Buy product, indoor monitoring will lead the segment by size through 2022, with an estimated value of REDACTED, while outdoor monitoring will see a CAGR of REDACTED and wearables will see a CAGR of REDACTED.
