Volatile Organic Compound Volatile organic compound (VOC) gas detectors are devices used to sense and detect concentrations of different types of VOC gases in air. The market for VOC gas detectors is expected to grow, mainly due to increasingly strict regulations governing emission standards. The market has been growing at a rate of 2.6% in 2016, primarily due to the increasing application of VOC gas detectors to curb indoor emissions from consumer goods, but also due to expected growth in industry, such as indoor oil and gas, transportation and chemicals.

Technological advancements in the VOC gas detector industry have resulted in the increasing market penetration of photoionization detectors (PIDs), standard pellistors, flame ionization detectors (FIDs), metal-oxide semiconductors (MOS) and nondispersive infrared (NDIR)-based VOC gas detectors.

To assess the market, BCC Research has broadly divided VOC gas detectors into five segments, based on the types of gas detected: benzene, formaldehyde, xylene, toluene and other types of VOC gases.

VOC gas detectors are widely used in industries such as oil and gas, transportations and chemical, and indoor applications as well. The oil and gas industry includes both refinery and oil and gas exploration.

The global market for VOC gas detectors is growing, primarily driven by demand in the North American, European and Asia-Pacific markets.

The goal of this report is to provide an analysis of recent developments and current trends in the global market for VOC gas detectors, as well as identify significant drivers of revenue growth in specific categories.

The objective of this type of systematic research is to quantify the projected impact of the internal and external forces that are affecting the VOC gas detector industry today and that will affect the industry over the forecast period of 2016 through 2021.

With the recovery of the global economy, gas emission standards have become more stringent in Europe, Asia-Pacific and North America, which has increased the demand for VOC gas detectors.

The scope of this report is broad and covers the different types of VOC gas detectors. The market is broken down by type of gas detected, type of technology used, industry, purpose of gas detection, and region.
