Technological advancements in air quality monitoring systems, rising levels of air pollution, supportive government regulations for effective air pollution monitoring and control, and ongoing initiatives toward the development of environment-friendly industries are the major factors that drives the growth of this market. Adding to this, increasing public-private funding for effective air pollution monitoring, and the increasing public awareness related to the environmental and healthcare implications of air pollution also supports the growth of this market.
The air quality monitoring systems devices market is expected to experience steady growth owing to the rising concern of air pollution. According to WHO, aAmbient air pollution accounts for an estimated 4.2 million deaths per year due to stroke, heart disease, lung cancer, acute and chronic respiratory diseases. Around 91% of the world’s population lives in places where air quality levels exceed WHO limits. While ambient air pollution affects developed and developing countries alike, low- and middle-income countries experience the highest-burden, with the greatest toll in the WHO Western Pacific and South-East Asia regions. According to WHO, 3.8 million people a year die prematurely from illness attributable to the household air pollution. Among these 3.8 million deaths:
On the basis of sampling methods, the global air quality monitoring systems market is segmented into active/continuous monitoring, manual monitoring, passive monitoring, intermittent monitoring, and stack monitoring. The active/continuous monitoring segment accounted for the largest share of the global air quality monitoring systems market in 2020, whereas the stack monitoring segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The continuous air monitoring method provides automatic and real-time data measurement of various air quality parameters, such as CO2, NH3, CO, hydrocarbons, H2S, PM, and SO2. In this method, a sample is collected over a short time period and processed either by sensors that are directly connected to the sampler or through a separate analysis procedure. The method generates measurements, which are averaged during a set time frame of a few seconds to few minutes to record the integrated results. Continuous AQM is conducted in areas such as urban centers and industrial facilities that have high exposure to air pollutants or a high risk of significant environmental changes within a short time period. The development of advanced continuous monitoring systems, rising public concerns about the deterioration of ambient air quality standards, and the increasing installation base of continuous air monitoring stations across major markets are the factors supporting market growth in this segment.
