Global Chemical Sensors Market 2017-2021

About Chemical Sensors

The chemical sensor is an analyzer that responds to a particular analyte and transforms the input chemical quantity, which can be either a concentration of a specific sample component or a total composition analysis, into an analytically electrical signal. Based on the working principle, the chemical sensor can be classified into many types such as electrochemical, optical, magnetic, and thermal. Chemical sensors can also be classified on the basis of the object detected such as a gas sensor for gas detection and analysis or biosensor for biological characteristics.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global chemical sensors market to grow at a CAGR of 5.73% during the period 2017-2021.
