Global Optical Sensor Market Dynamics
Drivers: Increasing Market Penetration of Smartphones
The adoption of smartphones is quickly outpacing home gadgets in several users. It is estimated that more than six billion cell phones will be actively used worldwide by 2020. Also, the increasing demand for advanced security features in smartphones has led to features, such as on-screen fingerprint scans, driving the fiber optic sensor market. It is an optical sensor that detects and verifies fingerprints. Synaptic announced, in 2017, that it has started the mass production of its first optical in-display fingerprint sensors. As companies are adopting on-screen fingerprint authentication, the demand for these sensors is expected to increase.
Ambient sensors take a measure of the light in the room and adjust the screen’s brightness accordingly. Thus, the increasing demand for smartphones is expected to drive the demand for these sensors. Countries, such as India, with the limited market penetration of smartphones, have witnessed double-digit growth in recent years. The same trend is expected to continue in the near future. Also, the current trend of 4G feature phones is expected to aid the smartphone demand, driving the demand for optical sensors.

Restraints: Imbalance between the Image Quality and Price
The imbalance between image quality and price has led to increased competition, particularly for the consumer electronics segment. Some of the most established players face peer pressure over optimal pricing. Several small players are also facing difficulty over product differentiation, which leads to a potential barrier for their entry into high-volume applications. In this case, successful product differentiation can move a product from pure pricing to non-pricing factors. Thus, companies are vying to overcome this challenge by focusing on advanced and efficient technologies that would help minimize sensors and superior performance. The increasing adoption of these sensors in non-traditional fields, such as automation (mobile robots), is expected to overcome this challenge.

Intrinsic Optical Sensor, by type, is accounted for the largest market share
Based on the Type, the global optical sensor market has been segmented into extrinsic and intrinsic optical sensors. Intrinsic Optical Sensor is accounted for the largest market share in 2020. Intrinsic optical sensors are deployed in applications like the measurement of rotation, acceleration, strain, acoustic pressure, and vibration. They offer greater sensitivity and allow more elaborate signal demodulation. These characteristics are increasing their adoption in applications that require high-level measurements. However, they are expensive and are difficult for the theater, which reduces the scope of their applications. These sensors are also deployed in biological studies to monitor and measure the growth of cells, kinetics of binding reactions, and chemical evolution, among others. Their biomedical applications include the distributed in-situ temperature and strain measurements inside the body. The increased military spending and the growth in the aerospace and defense automobiles sectors, which deploy internal measurement units for conveyance, are augmenting the segment’s growth.
