The global light sensors market reached a value of US$ 3 Billion in 2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to grow at a CAGR of 10.4% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.
Light sensors measure radiant energy that ranges in frequency from infrared (IR) to ultraviolet (UV) light spectrum and converts it into electrical signals. These sensors can be connected to a sprinkler system to help farmers keep crops hydrated. They can also be used with weather-monitoring equipment to optimize the watering schedule. As they are versatile and economical, they are utilized in freight shipping to track cargos to detect the change in light exposure whenever a container is opened. Other than this, light sensors find application in modern smartphones, computers, television (TV) remotes, automobiles and streetlamps to adjust the brightness and turn on the lights automatically.
Due to inflating disposable incomes, individuals are spending more on domotics or home automation, which represents one of the key factors impelling the market growth. Moreover, governments of various countries are investing in the development of smart cities, which is acting as another major growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, wide applications of light sensors in barcode scanners, Quick Response (QR) codes and intrusion detection systems (IDS) are bolstering the market growth. Besides this, pulse oximeters, which are incorporated with light sensors, are gaining popularity worldwide as they are being used to measure the oxygen saturation level in the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) patients. Recently, a research team from Empa, ETH Zurich and Zurich University Hospital has started working on designing a sensor that can measure the concentration of the new coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) in the environment. The device can measure the virus concentration in the air by using localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) technology, which relies on an optical sensor. These technological advancements and new product developments along-with the increasing industrial automation, and collaborations and partnerships in the industry are expected to drive the market further.
