This is the ElectroniCast forecast of global market consumption value of component-level sapphire-based fiber optic sensors. Sapphire is the hardest material and has the highest melting point of any transparent material that is commonly available. The use of sapphire is desirable when fiber optic sensors are used in certain harsh environments, since sapphire is a chemical and scratch resistant material with a melting point of 2,072°C.

In addition to the properties of sapphire itself, this report addresses packaging technology, such as radiation hardening (Rad-Hard), rough handling and other concerns of the use of sensors in harsh environments. This Executive Summary study report also provides selected research paper abstracts, as well as product descriptions and other relative information researched by ElectroniCast.


The 2018-2024 market forecast data presented in this study report are segmented into the following geographic regions, plus a Global summary:

  • America (North America, Central and South America)
  • EMEA (Europe, Middle Eastern countries, plus Africa)
  • APAC (Asia Pacific)

Sensor Types

The data in this study are presented in two independent sorts:

  • Sapphire-based Distributed Fiber Optic Sensor - component level
  • Sapphire-based Point Fiber Optic Sensors - component level


The market forecast of the sapphire-based fiber optic sensors systems is further segmented by application, as follows:

Industrial (Manufacturing Process/Factory) Military/Aerospace Energy (Petrochemical/ Nuclear Power/Utilities/Natural Resources)

Fiber Optic Sensors- Market Research By ElectroniCast

Overall, fiber optic sensor technology has experienced impressive growth since ElectroniCast first started providing market and technology analysis of the subject since the early 1980s. In fact our analysts were tracking the various advanced photonic technologies, since 1976. In regards to fiber optic sensors, laboratory demonstrations in the 1970s of fiber-optic gyros and acoustic sensors eventually led to the introduction of the first commercial intensity and spectrally based sensors.
