Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2036

Particulate Matter Monitoring Market size is expected to reach USD 7.8 Billion by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 12% during the forecast period, i.e., 2024-2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of particulate matter monitoring was over USD 2 Billion. The growth of the market is owing to the increasing air pollution and increasing growth can be largely attributed to this development. Awareness of the benefits of healthy air quality in society. In 2019, there were 99 % of the world's population in areas that failed to meet WHO Air Quality Guideline levels. There are 6.7 million premature deaths per year due to the combined effects of ambient air pollution and household air pollution.

In addition to this, the particulate matter monitoring market is anticipated to be stimulated by strict government rules aimed at reducing emissions due to rapid industrialization and urbanization. In order to protect public health and the environment, strict legislation requires industry to monitor and reduce emissions of particulate matter. Advanced PM surveillance systems must be installed to comply with these standards. Industries invest in robust monitoring solutions to meet these standards, as governments across the world impose stricter requirements for air quality. Moreover, the growth of the particulate matter monitoring sector is driven by growing government legislation and standards on air quality monitoring.

Particulate Matter Monitoring Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Increasing Adoption Of Particulate Matter Sensors And Their Easy Integration- Owing to their price advantage, low accuracy and portability, particulate matter sensors are widely applied as alternatives for air quality measurement. Due to their accuracy, these sensors have been adopted by several companies. The market will also be driven by the integration of PM sensors with drones or other unmanned vehicles for sampling environments in a network for spatiotemporal air quality measurements or personal monitoring for exposure estimation. In addition, sensors to detect particulate matter are being developed by various companies using machine learning techniques as a result of the emergence of AI. Therefore, in order to drive the market over the forecast period these advantages shall be analysed.
  • Increasing Monitoring of Indoor Air Quality Worldwide- The growth of the particulate matter monitoring market is because there are chances of numerous health effects, such as premature death in people with aggravated asthma, heart or lung diseases, decreased lung function, nonfatal heart attacks, irritation of airways, and irregular heartbeats. Some of the harmful, smaller and invisible particles like smog, smoke, and soot are visible can easily get into the lungs and bloodstream. The effects of these particulate matter on the health can be acute and chronic. Pre-existing conditions, type of particulate matter and various environmental factors play an important role in the health impact of particulate matter. There may be a number of unpleasant symptoms and conditions due to exposure to particulate matter. In total, one in ten deaths is due to air pollution.
  • Increasing Focus on Monitoring Air Quality in The Atmosphere- In several countries around the world, air quality monitoring for outdoor environments is considered critical. Some cities around the world, where there is a strong environment of modern urban technology or are planning major infrastructure improvements in their current towns, should be thinking about incorporating air quality sensors on their infrastructures. Ambient air quality, weather, traffic, noise, and other factors can be measured by Multifunction Sensors in cities with Smart City Agendas and advanced Data Management Capabilities. The effects of these particles are being felt by people living in high pollution cities and towns.


  • Lack of real time monitoring using modern technologies particulate matter monitoring solutions- By assessing all changes in particle density, particulate matter sensors can be used to monitor particle density. The characteristics of air passing over the sensor device. Unlike gas sensors, which can detect a variety of things. The exact composition of pollutants cannot be determined by particulate matter sensors. However, they can distinguish between different size particles. Gravimetric methods, for example, are considered the most accurate way of determining mass concentration, but they have some practical due to the weight and cost of these instruments, installation limitations in everyday applications are limited.
  • Although the market for particulate matter sensors has been estimated to grow significantly, it is expected that maintenance costs will limit growth.
  • The growth of the market can be hindered by emerging countries owing to the delays in the implementation of solutions to monitor particulate matter.

Particulate Matter Monitoring Segmentation

Particle Size (PM 1, PM 2.5, PM 5, PM 10)

Based on particle size, PM 2.5 segment in the particulate matter monitoring market is attributed to hold largest revenue share of about 40% during the forecast period. The growth of the particulate matter monitoring is because impurities of this size have a major impact on the air quality, making it difficult to breathe and can cause various health issues, such as asthma, low birth weight, and heart diseases. In addition, they make it difficult to see in urban areas like Beijing and Delhi, where there is a tendency for everything to be clouded. The air is irritating and distorting the alveolar wall when it gets into the lungs. In 2020, about 2,206,771 people worldwide, were diagnosed with lung cancer. This growth is supported by an increase in awareness of the monitoring of particulate matter levels among humans.

End-Use Industry (Power Generation, Oil & Gas, Chemical & Petrochemical, Transportation & Logistics, Healthcare, Research Institutions)

Based in end-use industry, the power generation segment in the particulate matter monitoring market is estimated to hold largest revenue share of about 30% during the forecast period. Large volumes of pollutants are released into the atmosphere when electricity is generated. Approximately 60% of the world's electricity is generated by waste from industry, municipalities and biomass, as well as fossil fuels such as coal, petroleum or gas. Such systems should be installed to monitor the levels of PM and other pollutants in exhaust gases before they are released into the air, with a view to reducing emissions from thermal power plants.
