The hydrogen leak detector is a leak testing equipment for locating the leak site by injecting hydrogen into the workpiece and holding the sensor to the workpiece. The sensor is used to monitor a system containing liquids, gases, or other hydrogen-containing substances to ensure that the contained materials do not escape, leak, or otherwise exit the system. The growing need for hydrogen leak detectors in different end-user industries due to the increased awareness of occupational dangers and incremental technical advancements in gas sensors and detectors are the main factors propelling the market's expansion of hydrogen leak detectors during the forecasted period.

The rising industrial gas leak incidents will drive the growth of the market.

The need for hydrogen leak detectors is being further fuelled by the rising number of leak incidents for hydrogen in various industrial sectors such as manufacturing and other industries. For instance, in September 2022, in a hydrogen gas cylinder explosion and ensuing fire at an electrical equipment manufacturing facility in Naigaon, where three workers died due to the incident. In June 2019, while filling a modular multi-cylinder trailer with gaseous hydrogen, a significant uncontrolled leak of high-pressure hydrogen at the air products hydrogen trailer transfer plant took place in Santa Clara, California. Considering the incidence of hydrogen gas leaks, the need for hydrogen leak detectors is required in all industries linked to energy, minerals, and gas propelling the market expansion of hydrogen leak detectors.

The rising hydrogen leak detector usage in the aerospace sector will grow the market

After leaks on the space shuttle when it is on the launch pads, technology for detecting hydrogen leaks has attracted the curiosity of researchers. Because of the hydrogen leak, many space research organizations have taken steps to install hydrogen leak detectors, for example, NASA has taken many efforts to improve propellant leak detection, construction, pre-launch activities, and flight. The objective has been to reduce the expenses of setting up and maintaining automated detection systems for hydrogen supply networks. Thus, having a backup plan in place is beneficial if something goes wrong during the launch process in the aircraft industry. According to a NASA report, In September 2022, Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) and NASA Lewis Research Center (LeRC) started developing point-contrast tact hydrogen sensors. These sensors are microfabricated to reduce power consumption and enable their installation in a range of settings. These initiatives collaborate to create a complete system that can track hydrogen propulsion system leakage and demonstrate that the need for hydrogen leak detectors in the aerospace sector will increase at a rapid pace, driving the hydrogen leak detector market.

During the forecast period, the North American region is expected to boost the market growth.

Due to the existence of significant vendors and governmental legislation aimed at regulating gas emissions and blast incidents, North America is experiencing a surge in the use of hydrogen leak detectors. The United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have severely enforced industrial safety in the North American area, which encourages the use of hydrogen leak detectors in the region. In 2021, the Mining and Gas Association of Canada stated that around USD 878 million was invested in mineral exploration in Ontario, making Canada's mining sector one of the most active in the world which will lead to the installation of safety measures such as hydrogen leak detectors which are required in mining for safety and other purposes. According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), statement the research and use of hydrogen as an alternative energy source in the United States is being spearheaded by the Fuel Cell Technologies Office, also the commercial industries, including fixed power systems and fuel-cell-powered industrial vehicles, have already adopted the usage of hydrogen as a fuel.   The expansion of hydrogen infrastructure, such as transportation and production capacity, on-site storage, and on-site dispensers, is assisting in the rise of hydrogen leak detectors, and such expenditures are projected to boost the hydrogen leak detector market growth in the North American area.

Market Key Developments.

  • In May 2021, the “DceL suite” an electrochemical gas sensor from DD-scientific had been released for industrial safety. The instrument is capable of detecting highly reactive gases such as hydrogen sulfide gas, in different industries.
  • In March 2021, INFICON launched its latest Portable Hydrogen Leak Detection Probe. The Strix sensor and hand probe are slower, heavier, and more difficult to operate than modern versions. The Strix probe's tip is also 12.5 percent smaller for easier access to difficult-to-reach checkpoints.
