Gas Leak Detector Market

Global Market Study on Gas Leak Detector: Portable Gas Leak Detector to Remain Dominant Segment over the Forecast Period


Gas leak detectors are increasingly used in industries, residences and commercial zones to avoid mishaps form gas leakage. Such equipment can alert on both minor and severe gas leakage using advance reading technologies such as ultrasonic, infrared and electrochemical.

In addition, they are capable of detecting air toxicity and presence of combustible gas in the air. There are two different types of gas leak detector available in the market; fixed and handheld.  Industry associations and government regulation strongly advocate installation of such equipment in manufacturing units to ensure worker and workplace safety.

Thus, installation of gas leak detector is mandatory in several industries as an “employee and personal safety instrument”. The global gas leak detectors market is expected to surpass US$ 3,143. Mn by 2020 end, expanding at 5.3% CAGR during the forecast period 2015 to 2020
