Increasing Deployment of Tunnels
The deployment of tunnels has increased during the last decade to improve road and rail connectivity. Tunnels are restricted spaces that are typically built through mountains or underground, resulting in inadequate ventilation. This can result in the accumulation of harmful gases inside the tunnel, which can have a negative influence on people's health. Carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), nitric oxide (NO), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), ozone (O3), sulfur dioxide (SO2), ammonia (NH3), and hydrogen sulfide are some of the gases usually encountered in tunnels (H2S). As a result, the demand for tunnel sensors to assess gaseous concentration has surged in recent years. Another significant function of tunnel sensors is to monitor vision within tunnels in order to assure air clarity for drivers traveling through the tunnel and, as a result, to prevent accidents in the tunnel.
The worldwide tunnel sensor market has been segmented on the basis of solutions, services, connectivity, application, and region.
By solution, the worldwide tunnel sensor market has been segmented into visibility monitoring, airflow monitoring, air quality monitoring, filter monitoring, fire monitoring, and others.
By services, the worldwide tunnel sensor market has been segmented on the basis of installation services, maintenance services, and consulting services.
By connectivity, the worldwide tunnel sensor market has been bifurcated into wired and wireless.
Based on application, the worldwide tunnel sensor market has been segmented into road tunnels, rail tunnels, and others.
