Electronics and Semiconductors |

Global Optical Sensor Market: Introduction

Transparency Market Research delivers key insights on the global optical sensor market. In terms of revenue, the global market is estimated to expand at a CAGR of ~11% during the forecast period, owing to numerous factors, regarding which, TMR offers thorough insights in its report on the global optical sensor market.

Optical sensors convert light into electric signals. They measure the physical quantity of light and convert light into a form that can be interpreted by an instrument. An optical sensor is connected to an electric trigger that can react as per changes in the signal. Optical sensors have the ability to measure changes in the wavelength of light. Optical sensors work by using either the single-point method or the distribution point method. In the single-point method, change in the single phase is required to activate the optical sensor. In the distribution point method, the sensor is reactive in series.

Optical sensors have evolved significantly since their introduction 40 years ago. Technological advancements over the last decade have resulted in the development of optical sensors that are suitable to function at a wide range of wavelengths, from ultraviolet (UV) to infrared (IR).

The global optical sensor market is witnessing significant advancements and innovations. Due to this, the market is expected to expand at a significant rate during the forecast period. Significant increase in the demand for optical sensors for use in a wide range of applications is another factor boosting the global optical sensor market. Optical sensors are employed in various applications such as oil & gas, border security, and smart homes.
