Industrial Gas Risks Leading to Higher Adoption Rates

Highly dangerous compounds, particularly flammable, poisonous, and oxygen gases, are increasingly being used and manufactured in a wide range of applications and industries. Fixed and portable gas detectors have a wide range of application. Highly dangerous chemicals, notably poisonous and combustible gases, are increasingly being used and manufactured in industrial operations. Gas leaks are unavoidable, posing a risk to industrial companies, their personnel, and those living nearby.

Global occurrences involving oxygen starvation, explosions, and loss of life are a living proof of this danger. Early warning devices such as gas detectors are an important aspect of most business safety plans for reducing risks to workers and equipment. These can help give additional time to take corrective or preventative action. They can also be utilized as part of a comprehensive monitoring and safety system that includes fire detection and emergency process shutdown, among other features. As such gas leak detection systems are in high demand.

Competitive Landscape

According to the Persistence Market Research analysis, Danfoss A/S, Tyco International PLC, Emerson Electric Co., 3M Co, Honeywell, and MSA Safety Inc. are identified as manufacturers of gas leak detectors.

This is a moderately fragmented market with the top players holding nearly 40-45% of the global market share. Product development and providing products according to niche applications is a key supply behavior in the global market. Market participants are vying to be able to provide field support services and maintenance programs as a strategy to work closely around customer demands. Key strategic acquisitions and collaboration initiatives are being observed by many players.
