According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Optical Sensor Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028,” the global optical sensor market size reached US$ 21.8 Billion in 2022. An optical sensor is a device that uses light to detect and measure physical quantities or properties of its surrounding environment. It works on the principle of capturing and interpreting light signals to obtain specific data. It utilizes various techniques, such as reflection, absorption, refraction, or emission of light, to gather information about an object or a specific parameter. It has a wide range of applications across multiple industries. In manufacturing and automation, it is commonly used for position detection, object recognition, and quality control. It is also employed in medical devices, such as blood glucose monitors and pulse oximeters, to measure vital signs and analyze biological samples. Additionally, it can operate in different wavelengths of light, including visible, infrared, and ultraviolet, enabling them to detect a diverse range of phenomena.
