The global environmental sensor market size is estimated to grow from USD 1.4 billion in 2021 to USD 2.7 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 10.3%.
The market has a promising growth potential due to several factors, including the growing adoption of environmental sensors especially air quality and temperature sensors in consumer electronics and government and public utility verticals will drive the demand for this market in the near future.
The major factor restraining the growth of the environmental sensor market is that long-term monitoring of environmental data may lead to the short life span of sensors. Environmental sensors are widely used to monitor environmental factors and maintain security and safety in various verticals including residential, commercials, enterprises, government and others. however, this requires long-term or continuous monitoring to retrieve data and generate safety alerts. Many of the aforementioned verticals require long-term monitoring in order to detect threats due to environmental changes. But continuous monitoring can degrade the quality and performance efficiency of the sensors and thereby reducing their life span. All these factors may result in a reluctance to deploy sensors at various verticals. This is expected to impact the environmental sensor market negatively in the coming years.
The market declined in 2020, mainly due to the impact of COVID-19. The supply chains were disrupted in 2020 due to the lockdown imposed by various governments and labor shortages in these industries due to travel restrictions, which would affect the environmental sensor market. Though the market has been impacted in 2020, it is expected to fully recover by 2021.
