Report Scope
BCC Research defines air quality monitors as equipment used to monitor, quantify and determine the quality of outdoor and indoor air in various places, including households. Air quality monitors determine a range of air pollutants in the air, such as various poisonous and harmful gases, pollen, dust, smoke, etc. Air quality monitors determine all types of air pollutions, namely, chemical pollution, biological pollution and physical pollution. These devices are extensively used by government and related institutions to measure any violations in air quality and pollution in various installations, as well as used to measure general outdoor air quality.

Air quality monitoring can be autonomous (continuous) monitoring or manual monitoring. In both processes, pollution and air quality sensors are installed in order to record air quality and provide measurable output, which precisely indicates the amount of pollutants in the air, as well as general composition/quality of the sampled air.

Air quality monitoring devices consist of hardware (sensors) as well as software that analyze data that is compared to a pre-populated database. An extension of air quality monitoring is analytics, in which software analyzes the air quality from various regions on earth in order to create a detailed map for comparing air quality (and pollution) around the globe.

To calculate and segment the market, we have mainly considered air quality monitoring hardware (sensors and overall devices). However, the report also considered associated software revenue, as well as companies that may not be sensor manufacturers, but market air quality monitoring products as their own by incorporating sensors from other manufacturers. The calculation also considers services revenue from the air quality monitoring technology/device providers.

However, stand-alone software (such as analytics software) that is sold separately from the air quality monitoring device/hardware is beyond the scope of this report. Other categories not investigated by this report include after-market software, hardware and services (including services which do not directly relate to air quality monitoring, such as education, consulting, training, etc.) and air quality control equipment.

The report begins by introducing the reader to how the market for air quality monitoring technologies has evolved over time and how various factors are impacting the sector. Building on that understanding, the report proceeds to identify the following factors:

Primary forces with a direct impact on the air quality monitoring technologies markets.
Secondary forces that have an indirect impact.
Key funding and financing in this space, which are particularly supportive for new entrants.
Some key challenges that may hinder market growth.
Key visible trends.
Top applications of air quality monitoring technologies, along with leading air quality monitoring technology segments.
Demand in the North America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), Asia-Pacific (APAC) and South America for air quality monitoring products.
