Optical fiber sensor (OFS) is a new type of sensor with light wave as a carrier and optical fiber as a medium, possessing high sensitivity, interference immunity, anti-corrosion, high-pressure resistance and other merits, thus being widely used in national defense, petrochemical, electric power, infrastructure, medical, etc..
At present, all countries in the world are energetically carrying out the R&D and application of optical fiber sensing technology, among them, the United States due to the earliest start leads the world in technology and scale. In 2013, global optical fiber sensor sales reached USD1.89 billion, up 19.6% year on year, of which, the United States registered USD1.22 billion, making up 64.6% of world’s total, which is expected to reach USD4.33 billion in 2018.
Since the research and application of optical fiber sensor in the 1970s, China has already made significant breakthroughs in high-temperature optical fiber sensor and fiber grating sensor, accompanied by massive application in petroleum, steel, transportation and national defense. In 2013, China’s optical fiber sensor market size approximated RMB960 million; with the support of national policy and boosted by Internet of Things (IoT) and other industries, the figure is estimated to approach RMB3 billion in 2018.
The promising prospect of Chinese optical fiber sensor market has attracted many domestic enterprises such as Wuhan WUTOS Co., Ltd, Beiyang Optic-electronic Information Technology Co., Ltd, Pegasus (Qingdao) Optoelectronics, Inc., Bandweaver Technologies Co., Ltd and Jiangsu Tongding Optic-Electronic Co., Ltd. Moreover, some foreign companies e.g. OMRON, Panasonic, Corning also have started their layout in China. In November 2013, Corning established the first R&D center in Shanghai, committed to the localized development of optical fiber sensor and other products in China.
Wuhan WUTOS Co., Ltd: the largest optical fiber sensor R&D and production base in China, once undertook China’s “Optical Fiber Sensor National High-tech Industrialization Demonstration Project”, capable of annually producing 210,000 units of optical fiber sensors.
Beiyang Optic-electronic Information Technology Co., Ltd: founded in December 2013, a merger of Weihai Beiyang Electric Group Co., Ltd – Optical Fiber Sensing Division and its subsidiary – Hangzhou OE Technology Co., Ltd. In 2014, the company is preparing the construction of Marine Optical Fiber Sensor Project; upon completion, it will form an annual production capacity of 1,000 sets of all-fiber ocean boundary detection equipment
Pegasus (Qingdao) Optoelectronics, Inc.: founded in 2012, currently is busy with the “Optical Fiber Sensor Industrialization Construction Project”; annual production capacity of 2,000 sets of optical fiber sensor series products will be realized after reaching designed capacity.
Bandweaver Technologies Co., Ltd: independent R&D of FireLaser DTS in 2009; independent R&D of OFSS6000 distributed fiber-optic intrusion detection system in 2011; development of MaxView distributed configuration monitoring platform in 2012; purchase of “Fiber Optic Sensing Safety Supervision System” from Focused Photonics(Hangzhou) Inc(FPI). (SZSE: 300203) in November 2012.
