Global Optical Sensor Market Dynamics
Drivers: Increase smartphone market penetration
Smartphone adoption is rapidly outpacing home gadgets among many users. It is estimated that more than six billion cell phones will be actively used worldwide by 2020. Additionally, the growing demand for advanced security features in smartphones has led to features such as fingerprint scans at the display, which are driving the fiber optic sensor market. It is an optical sensor that detects and verifies fingerprints. Synaptic announced in 2017 that it had launched mass production of its first optical in-screen fingerprint sensors. As businesses embrace in-screen fingerprint authentication, demand for these sensors is expected to increase.
Room sensors measure the light in the room and adjust the screen brightness accordingly. Thus, the growing demand for smartphones is expected to drive the demand for these sensors. Countries like India, where smartphone market penetration is limited, have seen double-digit growth in recent years. The same trend is expected to continue in the near future. Also, the current trend of 4G phones is expected to contribute to the demand for smartphones, driving the demand for optical sensors.
Cons: imbalance between image quality and price
The imbalance between image quality and price has led to increased competition, especially for the consumer electronics segment. Some of the more established players face peer pressure for optimal pricing. Several smaller players are also facing challenges in product differentiation, which is a potential barrier to their entry into high-volume applications. In this case, successful product differentiation can shift a product from pure pricing to non-pricing factors. So, companies are vying to overcome this challenge by focusing on advanced and efficient technologies that would help minimize sensors and improve performance. The increasing adoption of these sensors in non-traditional areas, such as automation (mobile robots), should overcome this challenge.

Intrinsic Optical Sensor, by Type, Accounts for the Largest Market Share
On the basis of type, the global optical sensors market has been segmented into extrinsic and intrinsic optical sensors. Intrinsic optical sensor accounts for the largest market share in 2020. Intrinsic optical sensors are deployed in applications such as measurement of rotation, acceleration, deformation, sound pressure, and vibration. They offer greater sensitivity and allow more elaborate demodulation of the signal. These features increase their adoption in applications that require high-level measurements. However, they are expensive and difficult for the theater, which narrows the scope of their applications. These sensors are also deployed in biological studies to monitor and measure cell growth, kinetics of binding reactions, and chemical evolution, among others. Their biomedical applications include in situ temperature and stress measurements distributed inside the body. Rising military spending and growing aerospace and defense automotive sectors, which deploy internal measurement units for transportation, are accelerating the growth of the segment.
Asia-Pacific accounts for the highest CAGR during the forecast period
Based on region, the global optical sensors market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa.
