Optical Sensors Market, By Region
Asia Pacific, mainly China, South Korea and India optical sensors market share accounted for over 30% of the revenue in 2015. Escalating demand for handheld as well as electronic systems is likely to drive regional growth through 2024. Untapped potential and steady demand in the region may contribute towards high growth rate. Rapid integration of these devices in smart control systems as well as factory automation may surge demand across the U.S.
High installation cost and sensing capabilities associated with materials are among major restraints in the optical sensors market. For instance, surging oil process may shift oil & gas companies focus towards fiber-optic sensors instead of conventional methods. These are used for maximizing resource extraction by monitoring pressure and temperatures in geothermal environments. Extremely high pressure and temperature along with corrosive chemicals and vibrations can damage the product. Thus, installation of fiber-optic cables involves huge investments in oil & gas industry, high-speed rail and automation industries.
