Global Environmental Monitoring Technology Report 2016 (TechVision) - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Technology Advancements Transforming Environmental Monitoring (TechVision)" report to their offering.

Climate changes in the past were attributed to astronomical deviations, however presently it is predominantly anthropogenic. Ocean acidification, air quality deterioration, and ice sheet melting are few evidences of climate change. Advanced monitoring technologies are greatly supporting formulation of action plans for managing changes in the environment.

Innovations in sensor technology are paving the way for real time and precise monitoring of environmental parameters leading to informed decision making and action plans. Sensors intended for environmental monitoring applications are becoming more and smaller and user friendly. The technology innovation report captures advances in sensor technologies that are intended for monitoring various parameters in the environment.

The report covers sensor technologies such as MEMS, nano, flexible, smart, bio, optical, image, and wireless. Assessment of sensor applications for environmental monitoring is done based on patent and funding trends, innovation initiatives, factors influencing adoption, and future growth opportunities.

Key Findings:

  • Environmental monitoring has emerged as a vital area for R&D activities in sensors. The need for enhanced environmental monitoring has intensified owing to the fact that global environmental issues have become more critical. Advances in sensor technologies and allied areas are driving efficient solutions for monitoring purposes. The development of environment monitoring has been greatly influenced by the advances in sensor technologies.
  • The European Union's mandate on ocean monitoring has integrated investigations of ocean, coastal and marine life and has encouraged technology convergence.
  • With the increasing focus on precision agriculture, sensors will find increasing opportunities along with drones and IoT.
  • Air quality monitoring has gained prominence with government measures to control pollution.
