Market Insights

Portable gas detectors are Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) designed to ensure personnel safety from gas hazards and allow mobile testing of locations, thereby permitting operator/personnel to enter an area beyond the detection perimeter of fixed gas detectors. Majority of sites worldwide generally employ a mix of both portable and fix gas detection equipment. However, portable gas detectors remain the preferred variants, especially at sites where deployment of fixed gas detection equipment is impractical and cost-prohibitive considering the requirement of detecting leakage or presence of gases in a confined spaces. Regulatory compliance and changing legislations coupled with evolving insurance pre-requisites are driving the uptake of portable gas detection equipment across different industry verticals including oil & gas, energy & mining, power generation, automotive, and marine among others. While the deployment of portable gas detectors was primarily confined to the aforementioned industry verticals, with advancements in technology, the demand for portable gas detectors is expected to upsurge in residential and commercial spaces during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. Need for safety from gas hazards at workplace remains the primary factor driving market growth across different end-use segments.
