LUX Meter Market: Overview
LUX meter, often called light meter, is a device used to measure the overall intensity of light within an environment for any given area or distance from the source or lux is the amount of light in an environments perceived by the human eye. In other words, Lux meters are used for measuring brightness or more accurately, illuminance. Most lux meters are designed with an integrated photodetector. The photodetector is positioned perpendicular to the light source for optimal exposure. Photodetector are composed of selenium or silicon to determine brightness photovoltaically. Most of the lux meters uses a mounted, wired and wireless photodetector to measure light intensity. Readouts are presented to the user via analog instrument or digital LCD panels. Most lux meters are handheld devices and are easily transported to the job site. The rising demand of lux meter in the workplace due to safety concerns and rising usage of lux meters in indoor and outdoor sports activities are some of the primary factors driving the growth of the global LUX meter market during the forecast period. However, the availability of free or very low price luxmeter apps for smart devices is restraining the growth of the LUX meter market. At present, various environmental and health & safety regulatory bodies has imposed standards with an aim to meet the correct lighting levels, and this is expected to create ample opportunities for LUX meter manufacturers to come up with more advanced high-efficiency light measurement devices.
