Other prominent vendors in the market include Agilent Technologies, Atlas Scientific, Hach, Hanna Instruments, Honeywell International, Hydro International, OAKTON Instruments, OptiEnz Sensors, Optiqua, OTT Hydromet, Sea-Bird Scientific, Siemens, Stevens Water Monitoring Systems, SUTRON, and, Xylem.

Air quality sensing market

The key driver for air quality sensing is the emerging trend of monitoring air quality in a designated area to understand the link between the air quality of a particular area and related health indicators. This is leading to increased investment in sensor technologies and subsequent market demand for sensor systems and solutions.

Sensor technology continues to advance. One such technology advancement is the miniaturization of environmental sensors and sensor components. The miniaturization technology used in sensors and sensor components reduces the size of sensors and the cost of materials, lowers the energy usage of sensors, and increases the size of distribution networks, which, in turn, will fuel the demand for environment monitoring and sensing equipment in the coming years.

As such Aeroqual is well positioned for future growth in this emerging market opportunity.
