By 2024, the wireless gas detection sensors market is projected to reach USD 1.4 billion from an estimated USD 1.0 billion in 2019, at a CAGR of 6.4% from 2019 to 2024. These sensors are used to measure the concentration of gases, such as nitrogen oxide. The development and implementation of new health and safety regulations across the globe, the increased adoption of gas sensors in HVAC systems and air quality monitors, and the rise in demand for gas sensors from critical industries are the major factors driving the growth of the gas sensors market. 
The ability of wireless sensing devices, using the Internet of Things (IoT) technology, to detect explosive or toxic gases from a safe distance is expected to boost their demand. These devices also offer advantages, such as easy installation at a lower cost as compared to wired devices and the ability to create a network of sensors. They also provide continuous, cost-effective, and reliable monitoring of remote locations.
The adoption of wireless devices in developed regions is especially high in the automotive, environmental, industrial, and medical sectors. In 2018, Europe dominated the global market for sensors due to its increased IT investments and advancements in new technologies. However, Asia Pacific is expected to soon lead the gas sensors market, since more consumer electronics, like tablets and wearables, will soon be integrated with these types of sensors.
Gas Sensor Applications 
- Automotive: The increased focus of the government on energy-efficiency and emission control standards has resulted in the new usage of these devices in the automotive sector.
- Consumer: Demand for devices that can be integrated into handheld devices has encouraged advancements in the technology. The market is projected to expand further on account of the rising need for ensuring safety at workplaces.
- Industrial: Indoor and outdoor air quality concerns are driving the use of gas sensors in building automation. Sensors are expected to have a high demand for HVAC control systems as they facilitate intelligent ventilation control. They’re also used for monitoring controlled combustion in industrial furnaces and measuring oxygen levels in confined spaces.
- Medical: These devices are primarily used for measuring volatile organic compounds, which may have adverse short-term and/or long-term health effects. For instance, they monitor the concentration of oxygen in anesthesia gas in incubators and ventilators. They’re also often integrated into medical equipment, such as breath monitoring systems, humidified oxygen heaters, life-supporting implants, oxygen concentrators, and temperature monitoring & control equipment.
- Petrochemical: Gas detection equipment is widely used in petrochemical applications for the detection and monitoring of combustible and toxic gases. Many different types of sensors are used, since each flammable gas requires a specific type of sensor to be accurately measured.
