Examine the Chemical Sensors Market in the USA

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - June 23, 2008) - Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report related to the Industrial equipment industry is available in its catalogue.

Chemical Sensors Market in the USA

http://www.reportlinker.com/p090368/Chemical-Sensors-Market-in-the-USA.html

US demand to surpass $5 billion by 2012

US demand for chemical sensors is projected to surpass $5 billion by 2012. Biosensors will continue to be the largest type of chemical sensor, as the increasing number of diagnosed diabetics continues to boost demand for blood glucose test strips. Overall growth will also be supported by technological advances that allow for price reduction, sensor miniaturization and greater precision, all of which expand the use of chemical sensors into new markets or new applications within existing markets. Demand for chemical sensors based on emerging technologies, such as optical sensors, will see the fastest gains. The biggest market will remain the medical market, but growth will be strong in all chemical sensor outlets, including industrial and environmental applications.

More Details

Optical sensors, biosensors present best opportunities

Through 2012, optical sensors and biosensors are expected to provide the best opportunities. Optical sensors -- including infrared sensors and products based on fiber optic, photoionization, fluorescence, chemiluminescence, light emitting diode, laser and ultraviolet technologies -- will see the fastest gains of all sensor types. Optical sensors will continue to benefit from their high sensitivity, stability, immunity to interference and product improvements such as smaller size and enhanced ruggedness.

Biosensors will also record rapid advances, boosted by the aging population and growing demand for home and point-ofcare testing and monitoring tools, primarily for blood glucose levels. While the development of multianalyte sensors and the use of biosensors in high-density arrays will support demand, biosensors used outside of medical applications will continue to face considerable challenges from other existing detection and measurement methodologies.

Medical market will remain the largest

The medical market will not only grow the fastest, but also will continue to represent the largest market for chemical sensors. More specifically, demand for blood glucose test strips will continue to see strong gains. However, competition among suppliers will put downward pressure on prices as manufacturers strive to capture or maintain market share. The large automotive sensor market will post favorable growth as well, due to a rebound in motor vehicle production and the introduction of new sensor applications. In addition, the development of lower-cost, more durable and higherperformance chemical sensors will drive demand in automotive cabin air quality applications and other markets such as process industries, environmental monitoring and homeland security.
