Chlorine sensors are special electrochemical devices which are generally used for chlorine analysis. These sensors are generally designed to fit into chlorine measurement devices for extensive range of aqueous environments. They are ampere-metric sensors, which are usually used for the measurement of mono-chloramine, free chlorine, and total chlorine in the fresh water applications. Monitoring of chlorine is significant as excess the chlorine content adds an unpleasant taste to the water. Chlorine is normally used as a disinfectant in the drinking water & swimming pools and chlorine sensors measure the adequate limits presence and also continuously monitor it in the water-treatment plants & reservoirs. In the industrial usage, these sensors monitor the chlorine percentage in the gas analyzers, crude and hydrocarbon extracts in the oil & gas industry.
Free chlorine is a most vital disinfectant in water treatment owing to its easy handling and strong disinfecting effect. These free chlorine sensors are applied in food (to provide hygienic bottling and packaging), drinking water (to ensure sufficient disinfection) and pool water (to dose disinfectant efficiently). These sensors are commonly used in a variety of processes to track or quantify the chlorine concentration and thus maximize chlorine use and lowering the running costs with uncompromised production. With advanced technology, the wirelessly linked free chlorine sensors are generally designed to allow unwired data transmission to the centralized network that directly facilitates the online tracking. Growth in demand for free chlorine sensors from various industries such as pharmaceutical, power generation, water utilities, oil & gas and others with rising investments coupled with government regulations have been escalating the growth of free chlorine sensors market.
As per analysis, “Global Free Chlorine Sensors Market Status (2015-2019) and Forecast (2020-2024) by Region, Product Type & End-Use” the key companies operating in the global free chlorine sensors market include Walchem, Emerson, Goldpoint Company, SB Control, WTW, Hach, H2trOnics, Sensorex, ENDETEC and among others. Acquisitions & partnerships of the renowned companies had helped the other companies in developing new & advanced products and this is poised to increase the chlorine sensor market.
Based on type, free chlorine sensors market is segmented as 0-2ppm, 0-5ppm and 0-10ppm. In addition, based on application, market is segmented as food & beverage production, drinking water disinfection, industrial water treatment and others. The free chlorine sensors market is driven by increase in pressure from customers for consistent water quality, followed by stringent regulations for water quality management and growth in industrialization. However, maintenance is a major challenge for market. Moreover, development of sensors with advanced technologies creates few opportunities for growth of the market. Furthermore, growth in manufacturing activities along with rapid technological changes is key trend for market.
Based on regional analysis, the North-America is a leading region in global free chlorine sensors market owing to early adoption of advanced technologies coupled with high investments in adopting them across the region. The Asia-Pacific and Europe regions are anticipated to witness higher growth rate due to growth in food & beverage industries over the forecast period. It is estimated that future of the global free chlorine sensors market will be bright as a result of growth in automotive and oil & gas industries during the forecast period.
