Technavio Announces Top Four Vendors in the Global Fiber Optics Sensors Market until 2020

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top four leading vendors for the global fiber optics sensors market in their latest research report. This report also lists three other prominent vendors who are expected to contribute to this market’s growth over the forecast period.

To identify the top vendors, Technavio’s market research analysts have considered the top contributors to the overall revenue of this market. To calculate the market size, the report considers revenues generated from the use of fiber optic sensors in the following customer segments:

  • Oil and gas
  • Manufacturing
  • Infrastructure
  • Security
  • Others, which include consumer electronics, healthcare, and transportation

Request sample report:

“The oil and gas segment of the global fiber optics sensor market was valued at over USD 661 million in 2015, and it is expected to dominate the market until 2020. The use of effective monitoring and remote sensing applications such as distributed temperature sensing (DTS) and distributed acoustic sensing (DAS), which are integrated with fiber optic sensors, has vastly improved the efficiency of oil and gas production and transportation systems. Therefore, it is estimated that the adoption of these monitoring systems in the oil and gas sector will grow during the forecast period,” said Asif, one of Technavio’s lead analysts for semiconductor and equipment research.

“Fiber optic sensors are also being considered as an ideal alternative to conventional sensing methods, due to their ability to measure temperatures and strain at different locations through a single fiber using the multiplexing technology. This trend is expected to significantly fuel the demand for fiber optic sensors for monitoring pipelines, oil wells, and coiled tubes for cracks over the next four years,” added Asif.
