When China first planned environmental monitoring work, it mainly focused on the field of atmospheric monitoring, and the water quality monitoring field started late. Before the 21st century, relevant analytical equipment basically relied on imported instruments. With the country's emphasis on environmental protection, the field of water quality monitoring has developed rapidly in recent years, especially the “Water Ten” issued in April 2015, which has brought a strong development momentum to the water quality monitoring market.
At the same time, China has gradually improved the environmental monitoring market and encouraged social forces to participate in environmental monitoring to form a good pattern for the joint development of social supervision and environmental protection agencies. The data shows that more than 100 environmental monitoring method standards were issued last year, and modern ecological environment monitoring systems were constructed using new ideas, new technologies and new products.
At present, China has initially established an ecological environment monitoring network, and is constantly improving the monitoring network layout of environmental factors such as air, water and soil. In terms of air quality monitoring, nearly 2,000 national control points have been deployed in 338 prefecture-level cities and above, and all have PM2.5 monitoring indicators. In terms of water quality monitoring, the surface water control section has expanded from 972 to more than 2,000 during the “Twelfth Five-Year Plan” period, covering 1,366 rivers and 139 important lakes in the country's top ten fields. In terms of soil monitoring, more than 30,000 monitoring points have been basically built. In addition, monitoring systems such as noise, acid rain, and radiation are gradually achieving full coverage.
The monitoring of the ecological environment is inseparable from advanced monitoring technologies and means. According to the forecast of relevant institutions, the market scale of the environmental monitoring industry is expected to exceed 90 billion yuan in 2020, which is undoubtedly a good news for the entire environmental protection industry, and therefore attracts a large number of Instrument companies and institutions are pouring into the environment to monitor this market.
