Fixed gas detector is a type of detector, which is permanently mounted across the use for the identification of gas content. Gas detection sensors are permanently connected to the transmitter or controller in the device. Fixed gas detectors do not need a constant human monitor or responder for the detection of gas concentration. Portable gas detectors are handheld devices used to provide safety to the individual user from a wide range of gas hazards across applications. Portable gas detectors are flexible in use and can be easily handled across any space as the user moves.
The South East Asia gas detection device market is estimated to account for US$ 408.5 Mn in terms of value by the end of 2027.

- Increasing foreign direct investment (FDI) in greenfield projects can present lucrative growth opportunities
Gas detection devices are experiencing high demand from Greenfield projects. In a Greenfield project, all the parts and facilities are built from scratch—available or ready infrastructure is not used. Greenfield projects are completely new and independent of any previous work done. As stated by the Asian Development Bank (ADB), 39% of all the infrastructure deals (from 2010 to 2015) were Greenfield developments. Greenfield projects represented two-thirds of the total projects in South East Asia and the Pacific region. For instance, according to the World Investment Report published by United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) based in Switzerland in 2015, FDI Greenfield projects across South East Asia have increased by 9.6%.
- Development gas detectors with advanced technologies can provide business opportunities
The rapid development in technologies has resulted in the introduction of advanced and innovative products in the Gas Detection Device market. Technologies such as cloud computing and wirelessHART are integrated with gas detectors to enhance the detection points or area coverage. Moreover, it reduces the overall cost of installation by the elimination of fixed wiring costs. Many gas detector manufacturers are developing wireless gas detectors, in order to deliver effective solutions across remote and local gas detection applications. For instance, United Electric Controls based in Watertown, Massachusetts, the U.S. has its distributors in Singapore, Indonesia, and Malaysia. It offers gas detectors with wirelessHART technology across the gas detection applications, especially for oil & gas production facilities.
