The Global Gas Leak Detector Market was valued at US$ 2,728.3 million in 2017, and is expected to increase to US$ 4,659.4 million by 2026 , registering a CAGR of 5.8% over the forecast period from 2018 to 2026, according to Gas Leak Detector Market Report, by Product Type (Fixed Type Gas Detector and Portable Gas Detector), by Technology Type (Electrochemical, Ultrasonic, Infrared, and Semiconductor), by Application (Industrial, Commercial, and Residential), and by Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East, and Africa).
Major factors driving growth of the gas leak detector market is rise in incidents of leakages in the oil and gas pipelines and storage tanks at production facilities, development and expansion of existing pipelines, and construction of new pipelines. For instance, according to Inside Energy, in the U.S., the number of people injured from oil and gas leakage was 112 in 2013 and it has grown to 142 in 2014. Therefore, rise in fatalities due to oil and gas leakage will turn increase demand for gas leak detectors as these detectors act as protection system, which in turn helps in avoiding such incidence caused due to leakage of oil and gas.
Rising installation of gas turbine plants is one of the key factors propelling growth of the market Ultrasonic-based gas leak detector accounted for the largest market in share in 2017 and it is expected to be dominant segment over the forecasted period (2018-2026). For instance, according to ’ analysis, the installation power generation capacity of natural gas was 1,298 GW in 2015 and it has grown to 1,398 GW, globally. The growth of the global gas turbine market is driven by increasing demand for replacing coal-fired power plants by natural gas-based turbine power plants. For instance, global installed gas-fired generation capacity is forecast to increase from 1,311 GW in 2010 to 2,008 GW in 2030, with electricity generation rising from 4,444 TWh to 7,187 TWh over the same period. Therefore, rise in installation of gas turbines is expected to significantly increase demand for ultrasonic gas leak detectors as this technology has the capability to detect gas leak even when the gas is diluted in the wind. This advantage is responsible for increasing demand for installing ultrasonic gas leak detector in offshore and onshore platform.
