Industry Insights

The global air quality monitoring system market was accounted for revenue of USD 4.1 billion in 2018. It is expected to witness growth with a CAGR of 6.8% over the forecasted years, 2019 to 2025. This growth can be attributed to increasing air pollution levels coupled with the need for its monitoring across the globe. Also, stringent rules and regulations being imposed by statutory governing bodies are expected to drive demand for these systems in upcoming years.

Several environmental issues like increases in levels of toxicity in the air, global warming, and acid rains are being caused on account of air pollution. Further, the rising demand for enhancing work environmental safety across sectors like automotive, oil& gas, and manufacturing is gaining traction all over the world. Several incidences like Aliso Canyon and Bhopal Gas Leakage have boosted the need for the usage of devices for monitoring the air quality.

U.S. air quality monitoring system market

Major organizations like Intel Corporation and Honeywell International Inc. have started collaborating with several governing authorities to enhance environmental protection. Such collaborations help in developing intelligent systems and sensor networks to monitor water and air quality.

Megacities across the world like Sao Paulo, Shanghai, Riyadh, Delhi, Kolkata, and Riyadh are facing pollution issues due to the rising number of vehicles. Several toxic elements like carbon monoxides, sulfur dioxides, and particulate matter are emitted by these vehicles. To overcome this pollution, many governmental bodies have started the installation of such systems. For example, 300 systems for air monitoring are expected to be installed by the Government of India until 2024. 

Product Type Insights

The outdoor product segment held the largest share across the global air quality monitoring system market owing to its integration with infrastructures like traffic systems, street light solutions, and smart poles. Several governing policies being imposed for the usage of these devices across many industrial sectors have also driven the demand for such solutions. This segment can be further divided into portable and fixed systems. Among them, fixed systems held the largest share owing to the increasing number of stations at public places for measuring air quality.

The indoor segment is also gaining popularity on account of increasing awareness about green buildings and smart homes across urban areas. The majority of the people spend around 75 to 85% of their overall time indoors. In 2018, the fixed indoor sub-segment held the largest share across the global market.

Pollutant Insights

In 2018, the chemical pollutant segment held the largest share across the global market. This growth can be attributed to the rising vehicle emissions across the globe which leads to the formation of carbon monoxide and other harmful pollutants. This segment is further classified into sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, volatile organic compounds, and carbon oxides. Among them, carbon oxides dominated the market owing to Cox emissions caused by several vehicles and factories.

The segment of physical pollutants is anticipated to witness the fastest growth from 2019 to 2025. This can be associated with the increasing awareness about environmental and health effects on particulate matter. For instance, cardiovascular diseases are caused by particulate matter having a size of fewer than 10 micrometers.

Component Insights

The hardware component segment dominated the global market in 2018 due to enhanced designs along with its real-time applications. Also, the surging number of system integrators across the globe is expected to drive the market growth of this segment. Fewer organizations carry out the work of system integration which facilitates the sale of hardware like display and sensors.

The segment of software is anticipated to witness the highest CAGR from 2019 to 2025. This can be associated with the demand for such devices among authorities associated with smart cities. Such authorities are majorly focusing on the integration of several systems like environmental monitoring, parking management, and traffic management in a single software.

End-use Insights

In 2018, the industrial end-use segment dominated the global air quality monitoring systems market and is projected to continue its growth in the upcoming years. This can be attributed to the rising adoption of such systems across several industries for monitoring air quality as prescribed by governing bodies. This segment can be further classified into manufacturing, oil and gas, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and others. Among these, the oil and gas sub-segment held the largest share across the global market. The rising demand for petroleum and natural gas, coupled with the emerging need for reducing the emission of methane has driven the demand for such products across the globe.

Europe air quality monitoring system market

The end-user segment of commercial systems is projected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecasted years, 2019 to 2025. This can be associated with the rising demand for real-time monitoring of air across the globe. These systems are majorly used to monitor the air quality at stadiums due to surging awareness about air pollutant effects on the sportsperson.

Regional Insights

In 2018, North America held the largest share across the global market. This can be associated with the increasing intensity of acid rains across this region that has resulted in around 90% of the lakes being acidic. The governing bodies across this region are imposing several implications for air quality monitoring which is anticipated to drive the market demand.

The Asia Pacific is expected to register the fastest growth during the forecasted years, 2019 to 2025. This growth can be attributed to the rising number of cardiovascular and respiratory diseases due to the air population across major cities. In 2018, 24 out of 30 cities across the globe having the worst AQI (Air Quality Index) were located in this region. Further, initiatives undertaken by governing bodies for manufacturers across countries like India to monitor real-time air quality is anticipated to drive the demand for such products in the upcoming years.

COVID-19 Impact Insights

The outbreak of the COVID-19 virus has positively impacted the global air-quality monitoring systems market. As per the guidelines prescribed by the WHO (World Health Organization), airborne transmission of the virus is possible. This has generated the need for monitoring of air quality. Also, the rising number of respiratory diseases among high-risk patients and the need for reducing the harmful effects of the mixture of the virus with hazardous pollutants like COX, NOX, and SOX is anticipated to augment the demand for such systems. Moreover, technological advances carried out by the manufacturers like the usage of wireless sensors, and display units in these systems are expected to trigger market growth. But, hindrance in the supply chain of raw materials and stagnancy across the industrial demand is anticipated to hamper the market growth to some extent over the post-pandemic period.

Air Quality Monitoring System Market Share Insights

This market includes key players like Emerson Electric Co.; 3M; HORIBA, Ltd.; Siemens AG; Merck; Teledyne Technologies Incorporated; and General Electric Company. These players are engaged in implementing several marketing strategies like product launches, collaboration, acquisitions, and mergers for widening their product reach. Also, huge investments in R&Ds for product development and innovation are being carried out for widening the product portfolio.

Several major players are expanding their manufacturing capacity. For example, in 2017, HORIBA Ltd set up a Process & Environment facility in Houston to carry out operations like service, production, sales, and design. Another player named Aeroqual Ltd. is also providing services for governing authorities. The Indian Government has partnered with players like Aeroqual Ltd. and Oizom for setting up monitoring systems across cities like Ahmadabad, Kolkata, Kakinada, and New Delhi.
