Overview of the Fiber Optics Sensors Market

With fast-paced technological advancement in the fiber optics sensors market, market players have introduced highly power-efficient and ultra-miniature fiber optic sensors. The need for reliable and robust sensors has evidently brought about a change in the materials and manufacturing processes used. All of these trends have brought about positive growth in the market for fiber optic sensors. Other applications such as crack monitoring in structures made of concrete have driven the market as well. As compared to other monitoring technologies, sensors that use fiber optics are preferred for their ability to spot concrete-structure cracks and structural damage as minute as 0.15 mm.

Some other advantages of fiber optics are: resistance to electromagnetic interference, low power consumption, and high sensitivity. Besides their use in LAN operations and the telecommunications industry, fiber optic sensors are also widely being utilized in the oil and gas industry, wind energy generation, homeland security operations, and smart buildings.

However, these sensors are still not regarded as being affordable. Their high deployment costs remain a hindrance to growth. But this scenario could change as government funding initiatives are boosting R&D in the fiber optics field.
