Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) are simple and low-cost sensor or filter that are built into the core of a wavelength-specific fiber cable. FBGs are used as inline optical filters to block certain wavelengths, or as wavelength-specific reflectors. Fiber Bragg Grating is one of the most useful, reliable, versatile and attractive passive devices in the fields of optical fiber communications and fiber optic sensors. In simple terms, it is an electronic device designed to measure ultra-high speed events in optical fiber in telecom industry. FBGs have an intrinsic capability to measure a variety of parameters along a single fiber, such as: strain, temperature, pressure, chemical and biological agents, and many others. These multi-point sensing arrays of many relative low cost FBGs, provide great flexibility of design and make them ideal devices to be adopted for a multitude of different sensing applications and implemented in different fields and industries. The FBG market is expected to expand at a higher growth rate in the forecast period owing to the increasing demand of effective sensor capable of measuring multiple physical parameters such as temperature, pressure, and acoustic waves in any given environment. FBGs sensors are used in wide range of applications in automotive, aerospace, Oil & gas and among others. The global Fiber Bragg Grating market is expected to witness a substantial growth during the forecast period. This is due to its increasing demand across various application sectors such as industrial, aerospace, oil & gas and telecom sector. However, need for industry standards on FBGs and FBG-based sensors, adequate and reliable packaging designs, as well as training and education of prospective customers and end-users are some of the restraining factor for the growth of FBGs market. Efforts are being taken by many companies to upgrade their research and development activities to analyze further application that is expected to generate profitable growth opportunities for the Fiber Bragg Grating market in the forecast period.
