A GCiS Limited Publication Study Published In December, 2009

China's market for gas detectors grew by around 20% 2009, following a similar rate in 2008, which reflects a burgeoning adoption of safety devices across all industries. Products are polarized between the high-end, high-price detectors used in safety critical applications such as petrochemicals and oil and gas, and low-end products mass produced for civil use. Foreign suppliers tend to dominate the former and domestic companies the latter. A battle for the middle market is expected to ensue as foreign firms consider expanding their presence in China and domestic companies produce products of ever-improving quality.

This GCiS market study draws on a three month, in-depth primary survey of around 100 of the market's supply side and channel players. A detailed understanding of fixed and portable combustible, toxic and multiplex gas detectors is provided by nine industry segments across China. Five-year projections provided in the study will be indispensible to anyone looking to map out the course of this quickly developing market. This report is essential reading for any professional needing accurate and detailed strategic information of this market.
