San Jose, CA (PRWEB) October 17, 2012
Follow us on LinkedIn – Capable of operating even in harsh environments including high temperatures amid corrosive materials and solid-state configurations, fiber optic sensors (FOS) are extensively used in a multitude of application areas including defense, telecommunications, construction, and chemical processing among others for monitoring a host of measurable parameters such as temperature, strain, pressure, displacement, flow rate, and acceleration. Having already proved their worth in helping monitor optical networks, oil reservoirs, civil constructions, pipelines, and perimeter security installations, fiber optic sensors are now gaining penetration in a host of new application areas. The market stands to benefit from growing demand from niche market segments such as renewable energy projects, biomedical instrumentation, automotive and test & measurement.
Another major trend projected to drive growth in the FOS market is the dedicated efforts and initiatives taken up by industry participants to promote use of this technology. Fiber optic sensor manufacturers, R&D institutions, and universities among other participants are coming together to spread awareness about unique properties and benefits of fiber optic sensors and possible applications areas, where they can be successfully implemented. Partnerships among industry participants, together with university funding and research activities will especially help in broad scale implementation of fiber optic sensors in a range of industry sectors going further. Emergence of several consulting and service companies offering consultation and implementation support services is also helping drive market prospects for fiber optic sensors. Furthermore, government investments in advanced defense projects such as undersea surveillance and chemical/biohazard detection also augur well for the growth of the market.
