The global optical sensor market size reached US$ 19.2 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, the analyst expects the market to reach US$ 36.15 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 10.70% during 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Optical sensors refer to transducers that convert the physical amount of light to electric signals as per the requirement. Some of the commonly available product varieties include internal and external optical sensors. The sensors that are utilized to collect and transmit a required quantity of light are called external, while internal sensors are used to recognize or measure the bends and variations in direction. They can operate in a dynamic wavelength range and are resistant to high temperatures and chemically reactive environments. Besides, optical sensors are quite sensitive and possess excellent optical resolution. As a result, they are widely adopted across various sectors, such as consumer electronics, automotive and transportation, healthcare, industrial, etc.

Optical Sensor Market Trends:
The expanding consumer electronics industry along with the rising demand for energy-efficient devices is primarily driving the global optical sensor market. The versatility, compactness, and light weight of the optical sensors make it feasible for numerous electronic devices to include advanced features like automatic brightness management, 3D mapping, restore recognition, biometric identification, etc. In addition to this, the escalating usage of ambient sensors in automobiles for the automatic dimming of headlamps, increasing visibility during adverse conditions, detecting the position of curbs and nearby vehicles while parking, etc., is creating a positive outlook for the market. Furthermore, the inflating investments in smart cities, buildings, and home projects are leading to the rising deployment of building automation solutions that allow owners to monitor and reduce energy consumption and control lighting. This, in turn, is further propelling the market growth. Besides this, the elevating utilization of optical sensors in wearable healthcare devices owing to their several benefits, such as high accuracy, compact size, and no response to electromagnetic waves, is acting as a significant growth-inducing factor. Moreover, the introduction of optical sensors based on molecularly imprinted nanomaterials (MIP) at the nanoscale, which exhibits enhanced performance compared to their conventional-sized counterparts, is expected to bolster the growth of the global optical sensor market over the forecasted period.
