Gas Detector Market

Date: 2016-05

A gas detector, as the name suggests, is capable of detecting the presence of a specific gas or gases and is usually a part of a safety system. Typically a gas detector is a part of a leak detection system and has the ability to sound alarms so that the necessary safety measures can be taken. There are several industries wherein workers are exposed to hazardous gases and the detection of any leakages are not only extremely vital but in most cases, mandatory as well. Mining and oil and gas related applications are some of the few examples where the use of gas detectors is of utmost importance. Such factors are expected to drive the growth of the gas detector market. Compliance with stringent regulations such as OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) regulations in the U.S. and regulations laid down by the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work are expected to have a positive influence on the gas detector market. Apart from this, technological advancements that result in smaller devices with better detection capabilities and reduced false alarms are also driving the growth of this market. However, periodic maintenance and calibration of the gas detector is required owing to the fact that environmental factors can impact the performance of the device over a period of time.
