Portable gas detectors are Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) intended to guarantee staff safety from gas risks and to allow portable testing of places, allowing the operator / person to enter an environment beyond the detection perimeter of fixed gas detectors. Most sites globally usually use a combination of mobile and fixed gas detection facilities. However, portable gas detectors remain the preferred variants, particularly at sites where the deployment of fixed gas detection equipment is impractical and cost-effective given the need to detect leakage or presence of gasses in confined spaces. Regulatory compliance and changing legislation, coupled with evolving insurance requirements, drives uptake of portable gas detection equipment across vertical sectors, including oil & gas, energy & mining, power generation, automotive and marine, among others. While the deployment of portable gas detectors was mainly confined to the above-mentioned vertical industry, with technological advances, the demand for portable gas detectors is expected to rise in residential and commercial spaces during the 2018-2026 forecast period. The need for safety from gas risks at the workplace continues the main driver of market growth across distinct end-use sections.
In addition, continuous advances in low-power LED photometric infrared technology to detect hydrocarbon gasses have made gas detection safer and more reliable over the last few years. Progressions in the Lower Explosive Limit infrared sensor technology have caused the implementation of multi-gas detectors that can function for about 2 years without any need for charging. Over the last few years, demand for portable gas detectors, especially those integrated with infrared technology, has witnessed an upsurge due to their superior ability to detect fuel gases, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide and other toxic gases.
