Gas Sensor Evolution and the Need for Better Air Quality Monitoring

Indoor and outdoor air pollution are one of the major problems of the 21st century, causing more than 8M deaths globally combined according to W.H.O.. This is a problem that must be tackled urgently. Moreover, covid-19 has made people more aware about the quality of the air they breathe, boosting interest for air quality monitoring. Developing and installing gas and particle sensors for air quality monitoring allows better control of our environment.

Those sensors are already used in numerous markets (automotive, consumer, industrial, etc). During this presentation we will go through the main applications of gas sensors, the market developments, the main players involved, the technologies used (with a focus on MEMS), as well as the technological evolutions. Finally, we will tease the shift towards digital olfaction.
