The global air quality monitoring system market size is expected to reach USD 6.5 billion by 2025, expanding at a CAGR of 6.8% from 2019 to 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. There has been a significant rise in pollutants being released into the atmosphere as a result of increase in the number of automobiles and growing industrialization. In response, government and environmental agencies have implemented stringent laws and regulations regarding exhaust emissions. The use of wireless communication networks for IoT-based air quality monitoring systems (AQMS) is likely to be the future by 2025.
Government agencies and smart city authorities are implementing smart city projects that will contribute to preventing deterioration of the environment. Smart city projects in various regions are focusing on adopting advanced technologies to offer improved public amenities, which includes enhancing the quality of air in the city. Furthermore, there has been an increase in the number of shopping malls and commercial parking spaces, which will drive product demand. Growing popularity of air pollution monitoring instruments such as Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) instruments, mass spectrometers, and gas chromatographs is a major factor expected to drive the market.
On-going research activities for the development of satellite-based air quality monitoring systems bodes well for market growth. Satellite-based remote sensing technology is immensely promising as satellite sensors measure the concentration of pollutants in the atmosphere through the interference in light reflected or emitted from the earth. The growing emphasis of technical standardization firms on the adoption of advanced measuring principles, such as the ultraviolet fluorescence measuring principle, is a key growth factor. The European Committee for Standardization specifies a continuous measurement method for the determination of concentration of sulfur dioxide present in ambient air based on the ultraviolet fluorescence measuring principle.
