Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) sensors are used in automobile industry to detect high temperature in combustion environment. NOx sensors are capable of measuring NOx density in exhaust gas. These sensors are directly attached to truck tailpipes or smokestacks or exhaust pipes and can precisely measure concentration of NOx. The increasing concerns related to environmental factors has attributed to the growth of NOx sensor market in automobile industry. Moreover, as NOx gases cause smog and acid rains and are hazardous to environment, governments of several nations have passed strict regulations to limit the emission these gases and has forced the automobile manufacturers to increase the use of NOx sensors to detect and limit these harmful emissions.
The report covers NOx sensors market by different forms/types such as Nitric Oxide (NO), Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2), Nitrous Oxide (N2O), and others. Nitric Oxide (NO) captures lions share in the market and mostly used in gasoline engines. The other type of nitrogen oxide such as N2O4 and N2O5 are mostly used for lower temperatures.
