Photoswitch: Introduction

  • A photoswitch is a kind of sensor that detects the presence of light or changes in the intensity of light.
  • Photoswitch is also known as photoelectric switch. It is a type of molecular machine in which molecules can be switched between two distinct thermodynamically stable forms.
  • Photoswitches are used in various applications such as consumer electronics, packaging, and in industrial manufacturing.
  • Smart photoswitches offer various advantages such as reduced maintenance cost, enhanced reliability, and reduced downtime.
  • Three types of photoswitches are available in the market. These include single point float, double float, and three float; these are used in various end-use applications such as for street lights, neon lights, advertising lights, and others.

Rise in Demand for Photoswitches for Use in Street Lights

  • The street light segment is likely to be the fastest growing segment of the global photoswitch market during the forecast period.
  • Photoswitches are majorly used in automated street lights. Nowadays, many of the street lights operate on solar energy; these solar street lights use photoswitches for the storage of solar energy.
  • Governments of many countries are initiating smart city projects, which use automated street lights that comprise photoswitches to detect the presence of light or changes in the intensity of light. This also propels the growth of the global photoswitch market.
  • Moreover, an increase in penetration of Industrial Internet of Things (IoT), rise in military expenditure across developed and developing countries, and growing demand for smart photoswitches are expected to boost the photoswitch market during the forecast period.
  • Some of the restraints of the photoswitch market are a decrease in demand from end-users, shortage of raw materials, and disruptions in the supply chain due to COVID-19.
