Revenue Analysis of Helium Leak Detection Systems from 2016 to 2020 Compared to Demand Outlook for 2021 to 2031

Helium leak detection systems have witnessed massive transformation since they were first introduced into the market. The transformation has been multi-pronged, with manufacturers paying attention to both, the design and functionality aspects of helium leak detection systems. Some of the modern-day helium leak detection systems are equipped with state-of-the-art technology.

Traditionally, demand for helium leak detectors has remained steady in developed markets of North America and Europe on account of adequate regulations and standards on product quality.

However, in the recent past, formulation and implementation of quality control regulations has increased in developing regions as well. Stringency in industrial standards in developing regions has necessitated the procurement of efficient leak detection equipment. These broader developments are likely to provide an impetus to market growth.

  • North America is a prominent region in the market due to rising demand for helium leak detection systems in USA, which is anticipated to rise at a CAGR of 5.5% and reach a market value of US$ 330 Mn by 2031.
  • The South Asia & Oceania region holds a market value of around US$ 145 Mn owing to high rate of technology adoption.
  • East Asia and Europe contributed significantly to the growth of helium leak detection systems, and account for around 19% and 21% market share, respectively.
  • The top 5 providers of helium leak detection systems held around 20% to 25% market share in 2020 as the market is fragmented.

What is the Scenario for the Europe Helium Leak Detection Systems Market?

The European region has long been an attractive market for analytical, scientific, as well as safety instruments. The region has a significant presence of helium leak detection systems in Greenfield as well as brownfield projects. This leads to having a market valuation of US$ 155 Mn, which is likely to expand at a CAGR of 4.5% over the forecast period.

Since the safety and quality standards of products manufactured in the region are relatively high, end-use industry’s demand for new sales as well as replacement sales is likely to reach a valuation of US$ 245 Mn by 2031.

An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs

How is Availability of Helium Leak Detection System Substitutes Impacting Market Demand?

Adoption of hydrogen as a tracer gas is steadily gaining adoption among end users owing to its low cost and limited availability of helium. Owing to its highly reactive nature, hydrogen is mixed with nitrogen to create a mixture known as forming gas. Due to such efficacy of hydrogen leak detectors, demand for helium leak detection systems has witnessed a decline.

However, it is pertinent to mention that implementation of hydrogen as a tracer gas is beset with challenges. Although the use of hydrogen is growing in sniffing applications, it is not an equivalent replacement for helium in the chamber test methods used in production applications
