FBG Interrogators Market: Introduction
- The FBG are is [NS1] reflector constructed in the short segment of optic fiber that reflects particular wavelength of the light and transmit all other wavelengths.
- In a fiber Bragg grating, the refractive index of the fiber core vary periodically along the length of the fiber. The refractive index of the fiber core is modulated at regular interval. When a light with a broad spectrum is launched into one end of fiber containing a fiber Bragg grating, the part of the light with wavelength matching the Bragg grating wavelength will be reflected back to the input end [NS2], with the rest of the light passing through to the other end.
- FBG Interrogators are high-precision measuring instruments for signal obtaining and processing from FBG sensors under operating conditions. Interrogator are the devices to retrieve the most accurate measurements from FBG sensors, it is a measurement unit or data acquisition system. It measures the light reflected from optical sensors and convert it to the mechanical units.
- An interrogator can measure a large sensing network composed by various types of sensors (such as strain, temperature, displacement, acceleration, tilt, etc.) connected along multiple fibers, by acquiring data simultaneously and at different sampling rates
Rise in Demand for FBG Interrogators in Automation and Sensing Devices
- The wireless telecom market continues to evolve with more advanced mobile standards. 5G wireless technology promises to create significant opportunities for the telecom industry, as it enables new advanced applications such as autonomous vehicles and virtual/augmented reality. Telecom service providers have started to invest in 5G, and this trend is expected to drive the demand for FBG interrogators in the telecom and networking sectors in the near future. In Datacom [NS3], demand is driven by networking investments by telecom service providers and enterprises upgrading their network, as well as cloud data center networking investments for increased bandwidth.
- In industrial applications, large arrays of different sensors are typically used forming a distributed sensor network they [NS4] use standalone optical fiber interrogators for data acquisition.
- Significant expansion of the fiber optic sensor market, particularly in intrinsic sensors embedded within the fiber, is estimated to drive the market for FBG interrogators during the forecast period
- The global process automation market is also expected to expand during the forecast period, which in turn is projected to boost the integration of sensors for various applications and consequently, propel the demand for FBG interrogators
Asia Pacific to Hold Prominent Share of Global Market
- Asia Pacific is projected to a prominent share of the global market during the forecast period, as the industrial, consumer, and commercial sectors in the region are witnessing extensive digitization and automation
- The electronics market in countries in Asia Pacific such as Japan, China, Korea, Singapore, and India has witnessed significant expansion
- The market in North America and Europe witnessed considerable expansion owing to greater concerns [NS5] in public safety, healthcare, aerospace which is significantly expected to drive the market for FBG Interrogators.
- The market in Latin America and Middle East & Africa is also estimated to expand at a steady pace [NS6] during the forecast period.
