This is the ElectroniCast forecast of global market consumption of Fiber Optic Sensors. The quantitative market forecast data presented in this study report, covering the years 2014-2019, are segmented into the following geographic regions, plus a Global summary:
The market forecast data is presented and segmented in two main sections:
The ElectroniCast market forecast of the Fiber Optic Point Sensors is segmented by the following end-user applications:
The ElectroniCast Fiber Optic Point Sensor Forecast further segmented by the following sensing/measuring quantity (measurand) types:
Mechanical Strain Temperature Pressure Chemical, Gas, Liquid Vibration, Acoustic, Seismic Displacement, Acceleration, Proximity Electric and Magnetic Field - Fiber Optic Sensors Rotation (such as Fiber Optic Gyroscopes: FOGs)
ElectroniCast counts each Point fiber optic sensors as one unit; however, the volume/quantity (number of units) of Distributed Continuous fiber optic sensors is based on a complete optical fiber line and associated components, which are defined as a “system”.
Continuous Distributed fiber optic sensor systems involve the optic fiber with the sensors embedded with the fiber. ElectroniCast includes the optoelectronic (system board and/or module), connectors, optical fiber, cable (fiber jacket) and the sensor elements (one uninterrupted line) in this forecast data. It is important to note that POINT sensors are often used in Distributed fiber optic sensor systems (installed at multiple-points/ point-to-point); however, we count their use in the Point fiber optic sensor category and not in the continuous (non-stop)
The market forecast of the Distributed Continuous Sensors is further segmented by application and by technology, as follows:
o Raman back-scattering o Brillouin waves
This report by ElectroniCast Consultants provides a very detailed review of applicable technologies, including:
Also included in this market forecast and analysis report from ElectroniCast is an extensive list of fiber optic sensor manufacturers and related companies, along with a matrix table classifying the types of sensors technologies. Market share estimates for the leading competitors are also provided.
Monitoring and data transmission using fiber optic sensors and optical fiber in cabling is now commonplace in various applications, via intrinsic fiber optic sensors or extrinsic fiber optic sensors. With an intrinsic sensor, one or more of the sensing/measuring quantity or physical properties (measurand) of the optical fiber passes through or inside the optical fiber and therefore experiences a change. Extrinsic sensing takes place in a region outside of the optical fiber and the optical fiber acts as a transmission media of light to and from (linking) the sensing interface.
