With developing new technologies in emerging economies, rapid urbanization and increasing housing and security investments, the market is estimated to project a promising CAGR of 9.2% over the period of forecast i.e. 2016-2023.
Distributed fiber optics sensors offer the monitoring of wide range of variables such as temperature, strain, acoustic perturbations, and others. The fiber optic sensor is initially designed to analyze the status and performance of optical fiber networks which are used for the transmission of voice and data signals.
These sensors are generally used in the region of high voltage electricity as they are poor conductor of electricity and resistant to electromagnetic interference. Apart from this, distributed fibre optic sensors are also designed to withstand high temperature as well.
Due to these unique features they can be deployed to the high electromagnetic interference zone where electronic sensors cannot operate such as jet fuel, oil and gas tank and others. Fiber optics sensors provide an extra edge over conventional electronic sensors with low cost, high bandwidth, light weight and electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference immunity (RFI).
Market Size & Forecast
In terms of revenue, North-America region dominated the distributed fiber optic sensors market followed by Asia-Pacific in the year 2015. The expansion of market in this region is attributed to the high adoption rate of fiber optic sensors in the manufacturing industry and the availability of huge reserves resulting in increased drilling activities.
By end-use industry, oil and gas accounted for 30% share to the global distributed fiber optics sensor market in 2015, however increasing demand for distributed fibre optics from oil and gas industry will further expand the market growth over the forecast period i.e. 2016-2023.
