Distributed fiber optic sensor system is a system referred to the monitoring of fiber optic sensors which are used to monitor a wide range of variables including temperature, acoustic perturbations, strain and others. The distributed fiber optic sensor system is designed in such a way that it analyzes the status and performance of the distributed fiber optic sensor networks, used for the transmission of voice and data signals, by sending signals in a constant movement, both backward and forward, in the laid optical fiber distribution. Fiber optic sensors find massive utilization in regions with high voltage electricity and are known to have several functional characteristics, which includes poor conductivity to electricity and high resistance to electromagnetic interference. They are also deployed in high electromagnetic interference zones as they can withstand high temperature. Other conventional sensors fail to operate at such environments, resulting in the deployment of a greater number of distributed fiber optic sensors and sensor systems. Moreover, factors such as low cost, radio frequency immunity (RFI), high band, electromagnetic interference (EMI) and light weight have led to the greater demand for distributed fiber optic sensor systems in the end user industries over conventional electronic sensors. The global distributed fiber optic sensor system market is anticipated to attain a CAGR of 11.0% over the period of forecast i.e. 2020-2027. The global distributed fiber optic sensor system market was valued at USD 6967.7 million in the year 2018 and is anticipated to reach USD 19403.8 million by the end of 2027.

The segment is also anticipated to attain an absolute $ opportunity of USD 4053.3 million in-between the assessment period, i.e. 2018-2027 and gain an incremental $ opportunity of USD 503.7 million in the year 2027 as compared to the previous year.
Market Drivers and Challenges
Rising investment in the deployment of distributed fiber optic sensor infrastructure in smart wells in the oil & gas industry along with the growing manufacturing industry are some of the key factors anticipated to drive the growth of the global distributed fiber optic sensor system market. The distributed optic fiber sensors are technically much advanced than conventional electronic sensors and have the characteristics to bear harsh environments. On the other hand, the oil & gas industry is rising on the back of growing demand for energy around the world and increasing consumption of oil in nations for different end use purposes. But, with the rising demand for oil and gas, there is an increasing concern for the depletion of oil reserves. Owing to such factors, oil vendors around the globe along with the interest of the governments are increasingly indulging in the drilling activities and exploration of oil reserves, which is anticipated to raise the demand for the deployment of distributed fiber optic sensors, which in turn will require the deployment of distributed optic fiber sensor systems. Such factors are anticipated to drive the growth of the global distributed fiber optic sensor system market.
Any fluctuations in the price of oil in the oil industry affects the whole ecosystem, which in turn is estimated to lower the demand for distributed optic fiber sensor systems. Moreover, owing to several strict regulations in nations around the world, the deployment of distributed fiber optic sensor system becomes challenging, which is also anticipated to impact negatively towards the growth of the global distributed fiber optic sensor system market.
