Global Photonic Sensors and Detection Market Overview

Photonic sensors are devices that sense light and release electrical pulses. Due to properties such as distributed sensing and resistance to electromagnetic interference, photonic sensors are used in several applications such as detecting biological hazards, structural flaws detection, and homeland security and mitigate security threats with the help of wireless systems integrated within photonic sensors. Photonic sensors allow better sensing and detecting functions and it is expected that this technology would give a high return on investment in the long run to the company’s manufacturing these sensors. The photonic industry is now focused on the development of eco-efficient products such as grating-coupled sensors, photonic crystal, and micro-resonator waveguide sensors that are anticipated to be developed and launched over the next few years. Technologically advanced products are cheaper, lighter and faster and with less energy usage and high functionality which is anticipated to impel the photonic sensors market over the period of forecast.

Market Size & Forecast

Global photonic sensors and detection market is anticipated to reach US$ 35 billion in 2023 witnessing a compound annual growth rate of 16% over the period 2016-2023

The Bio-photonic sensors segment is anticipated to be the most attractive segment, witnessing a CAGR of 9.9% over the period 2015-2023 owing to the increased use in homeland security, military applications such as chemical and biological agent detection, bio-warfare defense, field intelligence and explosives detection, however fiber optic segment accounted for highest market share in 2015. 

North-America is anticipated to be the largest market for photonic sensors and detections and is estimated to account 26% of the total market share by 2023. Asia-Pacific market is anticipated to witness a compound annual growth rate of 23% over the forecast period i.e. 2016-2023. Asia Pacific is expected to be the prominent region for the photonic sensors market by 2023 due to emerging economies of the countries such as India and China. Further, Europe is projected to be a significant region due to notable technologies in oil & gas exploration in the market; however the Europe market is expected to project slow growth in upcoming 5-6 years, the slow growth of the region is attributed to the negative impact of Greek economy crises on European Union. CLICK TO DOWNLOAD FREE SAMPLE REPORT
