Global Fiber Optic Sensors Market Forecast and Analysis 2016 – 2026; New Report Launched

Market Research Reports, Inc. has announced the addition of “Fiber Optic Sensors Global Market Forecast & Analysis 2016 - 2026” research report to their website


Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/11/2017 -- This is the Publisher forecast of global market consumption of Fiber Optic Sensors. The quantitative market forecast data presented in this study report, covering the years 2016-2026, are segmented into the following geographic regions, plus a Global summary:

The Americas (North America, Central and South America)
EMEA (Europe, Middle Eastern countries, plus Africa)
APAC (Asia Pacific)

The market forecast data is presented and segmented in two main sections:

Fiber Optic Point Sensors: Component-Level
Distributed Continuous Fiber Optic Sensor Systems

Publisher counts each Point fiber optic sensors as one unit; however, the volume/quantity (number of units) of Distributed fiber optic sensors is based on a complete optical fiber line and associated components, which are defined as a "system".

Distributed fiber optic sensor systems involve the optic fiber with the sensors embedded with the fiber. Publisher includes the optoelectronic (system board and/or module), connectors, optical fiber, cable (fiber jacket) and the sensor elements in this market forecast data.

Market Research Methodology Information Base

This study is based on analysis of information obtained continually over 25 years, but updated through the beginning of May 2017. Continuously, Publisher analysts performed interviews with authoritative and representative individuals in the fiber optics industry plus automotive, petrochemical/energy/ utilities, civil engineering/construction, telecommunications, data communication, military/aerospace/security and other (multiple) industries, instrumentation/ laboratory – R&D and factory/manufacturing, from the standpoint of both suppliers and users of fiber optic sensors. The interviews were conducted principally with:

Engineers, marketing personnel and management at manufacturers of fiber optic sensors, test equipment, biophotonics and medical devices, mechanical splice, connectors, transceivers and receivers, as well as LEDs, laser diodes and photodiodes, and other components used in the fabrication of optoelectronic transceivers, specialty optical fiber, optical fiber/cable and installation apparatus

Design group leaders, engineers, marketing personnel and market planners at major users and potential users of fiber optic sensor system manufacturers, defense (primary) contractors, weapon system, aircraft and spacecraft electronic equipment producers, optical instrumentation system producers, optic fiber/cable, telecommunication transmission, commercial/industrial, manufacturing switching and distribution equipment producers, data communications equipment producers (switches, hubs, routers), computer and workstation producers, and others. Other industry experts, including those focused on standards activities, trade associations, and investments.

The interviews covered issues of technology, R&D support, pricing, contract size, reliability, documentation, installation/maintenance crafts, standards, supplier competition and other topics. Customers also were interviewed, to obtain their estimates of quantities received and average prices paid, as a crosscheck of vendor estimates. Customer estimates of historical and expected near term future growth of their application are obtained. Their views of use of new technology products were obtained.

The analyst then considered customer expectations of near term growth in their application, plus forecasted economic payback of investment, technology trends and changes in government regulations in each geographical region, to derive estimated growth rates of quantity and price of each product subset in each application. These forecasted growth rates are combined with the estimated baseline data to obtain the long-range forecasts at the lowest detailed level of each product and application.

A full review of published information was also performed to supplement information obtained through interviews. The following sources were reviewed:

- Professional technical journals and papers; Trade press articles
- Technical conference proceedings; Product literature
- Company profile and financial information
- Additional information based on previous Publisher market studies
- Personal knowledge of the research team

In analyzing and forecasting the complexities of the total available market for optical interconnect products, it is essential that the market research team have a good and a deep understanding of the technology and of the industry. Publisher members who participated in this report were qualified.

Bottom-up Methodology Publisher forecasts are developed initially at the lowest detail level, then summed to successively higher levels. The background market research focuses on the amount of each type of product used in each application in the base year (last year), and the prices paid at the first transaction from the manufacturer. This forms the base year data. Publisher analysts then forecast the growth rates in component quantity use in each application, along with price trends, based on competitive, economic and technology forecast trends, and apply these to derive long term forecasts at the lowest application levels. The usage growth rate forecasts depend heavily on analysis of overall end user trends toward digital broadband communication equipment usage and economic payback.

Cross-Correlation Increases Accuracy The quantities of fiber optic sensors, transmitters/receivers, test equipment, biophotonic devices, couplers, filters, attenuators, specialty and singlemode/multimode glass fiber and plastic optical fiber and other optical communication components used in a particular application are interrelated. Since Publisher conducts annual analysis and forecast in each component field, accurate current quantity estimates are part of the corporate internal database. These quantities are cross-correlated as a "sanity check".
