2) Chemical Sensors Market Growing at 11.35 % CAGR to 2019


ReportsnReports.com adds Global Chemical Sensors Market 2015-2019 research report (available starting Dec 3, 2014) and offers U.S. Chemical Sensors to 2017 market research report in the chemicals industry intelligence collection of its online library.


A Number of Biomedical Applications Will Encourage Growth in the Global Chemical Sensor Market by 2019 according to a new research report available with ReportsnReports.com starting Dec 3, 2014. Demand for quick, accurate diagnosis in the medical sector is expected to be a developing trend in the market over the next four years. The research spread across 100 pages and providing data and information according to market segmentation by type, by application and geographies, profiles 6 major players of the industry and the market analysis is supported with 47 data and information exhibits.


Chemical sensors are essential for analyzing the chemical composition of a sample in industries ranging from automotive to medical, industrial and environmental. The sensors consist of a receptor and transducer that operate on a real-time basis and are controlled by kinetics and thermodynamic chemical reactions. Chemical sensors help record patient data, and are being used in blood sugar testing strips, portable glucose monitors, renal failure diagnosis, drug and alcohol abuse diagnosis, cancer diagnosis, and fertility treatments. Emerging developments in technology are also expected to increase the market penetration of chemical sensors and provide better solutions in end-user industries. Manufacturers are introducing new cost-effective, portable and miniaturized variations of sensors that provide better integration with measurement systems. The market is highly fragmented with the presence of several large vendors like Abbott Laboratories, Bayer, Bosch, Johnson & Johnson, NGK and Roche, which have vast geographical presences with huge production facilities worldwide.

Bullet Sensor and Measurement Q3 Statistics: Turnovers and Orders



The sensor and measuring industry's turnover remains unchanged for the 3rd quarter of 2014, while orders incoming rose by 2 percent. The sensor industry predicts a cumulative growth in turnover for the current year of a good 7 percent.


Berlin, 2. December 2014—The AMA Association for Sensors and Measurement polled its 480 members on the economic development in the third quarter of 2014. The mostly small and medium-sized enterprises generated revenues to the same amount as in the previous quarter. Comparing the 3rd quarter of this year with the result of the previous year, the sector achieved a gain in revenue of 7 percent.


With an increase of 2 percent in orders incoming, compared to the results of the previous quarter, the sensor and measurement industry's outlook for the overall annual results are positive. “Based on the current quarter's results and the outlook to an annual growth of 7 percent, our sector of industry is looking at a positive fiscal year, despite the cautious prognosis for the German industry as a whole,” says Thomas Simmons, AMA General Manager, summarizing the current results.


According to the statistics of the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology, the German industry is presently going through a lull, as incoming orders are stabilizing. The Ministry sees the reason for this in the difficult foreign-trade environment.


Based on its current results, the sensor and measuring sector is thus a stable part of the general market development. “The results of our polls confirm the importance of sensing and measuring as basic technologies for today’s technical challenges,” states Simmons. “Our member enterprises supply all of industry, thus reflecting its economic development with a usually slightly more positive trend. We remain confident, our branch of industry is investing 10 percent of its revenue in research and development, the globe is being networked and getting smarter every day. Thus there is an ever increasing demand for innovative sensors and measuring systems,” says Simmons, explaining the continued positive mood in the sensor and measuring industry.
