Optical Sensors Market size worth USD 30 billion by 2024

Optical Sensors Market size is expected to reach USD 30 billion by 2024; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.

Strong demand for precise, environmental friendly and safety systems is likely to drive global optical sensors market size from 2016 to 2024. Escalating device implementation across various applications such as consumer electronics, military & defense, industrial and automotive may catalyze growth. Considerable efforts to make the products more environmentally friendly is also set to positively impact the business landscape. Optimal flexibility across numerous devices such as heads-up terminals as well as smartwatches may fuel demand.

Optical sensors market share is predicted to witness substantial growth prospects owing to its surging implementation in the oil & gas sector. These devices offer substantial convenience by reducing the operational challenges at deeper levels. Features such as permanent reservoir monitoring provided by these products help in increasing oil extraction rates. As the products are compact, passive and lightweight, it can be easily multiplexed to interrogate extensive sensor arrays, enabling higher sensing range accompanied by high sensitivity as well as dynamic range. This in turn assists in higher return on investments coupled with low cost of ownership.
