REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY

Optical sensors have major applications across various sectors such as commercial, defense, medical equipment, and research and development. Increasing deployment of optical sensors across the above-mentioned segments is expected to fuel the demand for optical systems at the global level. There are various advantages of optical sensors for these applications including greater sensitivity, electrical passiveness, freedom from electromagnetic interference, wide dynamic range, both point and distributed configuration, and multiplexing capabilities. Owing to these factors, the optical sensor market was considered by BCC Research to be an important area for study.

SCOPE OF REPORT

The optical sensor market is segmented into categories as follows:

By type: extrinsic sensors and intrinsic sensors. Extrinsic optical sensors are further sub-segmented into temperature sensors, flow measurement sensors, pressure sensors, and others. Intrinsic sensors are further sub-segmented into rotation sensors, acceleration sensors, strain sensors, and others.

By application: military and law enforcement, night vision cameras, biometrics, partial discharge detection, biological sensing, chemical sensing, and others.

By industry end user: aerospace and defense, utilities, construction, chemical, oil and gas, and others.

By region: North America is segmented into the U.S., Canada, and Mexico; Europe is segmented into France, Italy, Germany, U.K., Russia, and rest of Commonwealth Independent States (CIS); Asia-Pacific (APAC) is segmented into China, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, and others; and Rest of the World (ROW) covers Middle East, Africa, and South America.

In addition to industry and competitive analysis of the optical sensor market, this report also includes a patent analysis and a listing of company profiles for key players in the optical sensor market.
