Global Fiber Optic Sensors Market Trajectory and Analysis

Dublin, 08 Feb. 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Fiber Optic Sensors – Global Market Trajectory & Analytics” report has been added to from offer.

Global fiber optic sensor market to reach US$4.4 billion by 2026

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global fiber optic sensor market estimated at US$2.7 billion in 2020 is expected to reach a revised size of US$4.4 billion by 2026, with growth at a CAGR of 8.6% over the analysis period.

The demand is expected to become more intense in the coming years, especially for applications in extreme environmental conditions in which electrical sensors do not operate as efficiently. Examples of such applications include the oil and gas and manufacturing sectors.

Another major driving factor is the increase in the exploration of unconventional energy resources across the world. The deployment of ultra-miniaturized and energy efficient sensors is expected to contribute significantly to the market growth. The market is also driven by applications such as crack monitoring in concrete-based structures.

The preference for fiber optic sensors in these applications is due to their ability to identify cracks and damage in concrete structures, which is not possible with most existing monitoring technologies.

Fiber optic sensors have the potential for faster and more efficient means of identifying structural damage in civil constructions and aircraft, detecting intrusions into secure premises and identifying the presence of oil in oil tanks, and therefore have and will continue to remain at the center of global R&D and commercialization efforts in these segments.

Intrinsic, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.1% to reach US$3.5 billion by the end of the analysis period.

After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and the induced economic crisis, the growth of the Extrinsic segment is readjusted to a revised CAGR of 7.2% for the next 7-year period.

This segment currently accounts for a 31.4% share of the global fiber optic sensor market. Extrinsic sensors use fiber to guide light to the sensing region, the point at which the optical signal exits the waveguide and modulates into another medium. In contrast, in intrinsic sensors, the light continues to reside in the waveguide and measures optical signal impacts while traveling down the fiber.

The US market is estimated at $746.8 million in 2021, while China is expected to reach $539.5 million by 2026

The fiber optic sensor market in the United States is estimated to be worth US$746.8 million in 2021. The country currently accounts for a 25.99% share of the global market. China, the world’s second largest economy, is expected to reach an estimated market size of US$539.5 million in 2026 growing at a CAGR of 10.5% over the analysis period.

Other noteworthy geographic markets include Japan and Canada, each forecasting growth of 7.1% and 7.4% respectively over the analysis period. In Europe, Germany is expected to grow at a CAGR of approximately 8.2%, while the rest of the European market (as defined in the study) will reach US$605.3 million by the end of the year. analysis period.

The use of distributed fiber optic sensors in North American oil wells is driving growth in the region. Growth in Asia-Pacific will be primarily driven by increased adoption of aviation in countries such as Thailand, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Singapore, China and India .
