Market Analysis: Global Optical Sensing Market

Global optical sensing market is expected to register a healthy CAGR of 16.90% in the forecast period of 2019-2026. The report contains data from the base year of 2018 and the historic year of 2017. The rise in the market value can be attributed to increasing demand for advanced security features in smartphones has led to features, such as on-screen fingerprint scan in which an optical sensor detects and verifies fingerprints and sensors which have applications in intelligent lighting as they help in saving power.

Market Definition: Global Optical Sensing Market

A dedicated sensor which converts optical signals into electronic signals is an optical sensor. It is comparable to a photo resistor's functionality, it analyses the physical quantity of light and transforms it into a form that a measuring instrument can interpret. Most often, this variation or change is based on modifications in light intensity. Broad purposes such as imaging, quality and process control, metrology, remote sensing, medical technology, among others, have been commonly implemented.

Market Drivers:

  • The ease of accessibility of excellent quality and affordable optical fibers and optoelectronic parts helping the evolution of optical sensors for biological applications
  • Increasing demand for sophisticated smartphone security features has resulted to features including fingerprint scans on-screen, an optical sensor that senses and validates fingerprints
  • Increasing demand for sensors having applications in intelligent lighting, they help in saving power
  • Constant technological developments in optical sensors are driving the growth of the market

Market Restraints:

  • Comparatively high cost of optical sensors hinders the market growth
  • Limited standardization as well as lack of awareness regarding its functionality are restraining optical sensors market growth
  • Less acceptability of optical sensors is responsible for hampering the growth of optical sensor market

Key Developments in the Market

  • In November 2018, ams has launched a new CSG14K image sensor for Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) for high-throughput manufacturing and optical sensing applications. For a resolution of 14 megapixels, the CSG14 K image sensor is constructed around a 3840-by 3584-pixel array. The 12-bit output will provide the big dynamic range required to manage the big light intensity differences that are frequently experienced in contemporary production and inspection settings
  • In August 2019, Huami has introduced a new Amazfit Verge Lite smartwatch in India. It is fitted with real-time surveillance to monitor seven distinct fitness operations such as running, cycling and elliptical training. For a more accurate and reliable heart rate monitoring information, the smartwatch features a self-developed high-precision optical sensor. It also offers 24 hours of ongoing heart rate surveillance with an extensive daily and weekly perspective of the situation of the heart
