Global Color Detection Sensors Market: Growth, Future Prospects, & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

Published: | Report ID: 7443 | Report Format : PDF


Color sensors are potent sensing devices capable of sensing color and light and differentiating accordingly. They calculate the chromaticity coordinates using reflected radiation, compare them with formerly collected reference colors, and ensure color consistency in continual output processes. Although awareness regarding the benefits offered by these sensors is minimal, they are steadily gaining prominence across industries such as packaging, printing, textile, food and packaging, consumer electronics, automotive, healthcare, and oil & gas to identify minute variations of color, distinguish coded markings, and ensure color consistency, among others.

The positive outlook of the food packaging industry, coupled with stringent regulations with respect to efficient packaging and coded marking, is expected to influence the need for color detection sensors in registration and identification applications. Color sensors with improved features capable of detecting the color texture of the fabric and ensuring color uniformity are driving their demand in the textile industry. Similarly, the proliferation of smartphones integrated with color detection sensors for optimum color brightness detection is aiding market growth.

Increasing capital investments in industries including oil and gas, automotive, and power and energy is instrumental in driving demand for industrial automation. Growing industrial automation bodes well for the growth of the related automation markets, including color detection sensors. Furthermore, the possibility, customization, and ease of use of these sensors are encouraging their use in the textile and industrial manufacturing sectors. On the contrary, uncertainty with respect to the level of accuracy while operating under stringent environmental conditions is one of the major challenges that the market is grappling with. Since color detection sensors are prone to sunlight, industrial lighting, etc., color differentiation becomes challenging for these devices. However, with advancements in technology, it is presumed that manufacturers would be able to come up with state-of-the-art devices with improved speed, accuracy, and fidelity, capable of sensing very minute differences in color.

In terms of value contribution, Europe led the overall color detection sensor market in 2017. Europe is home to a large number of color detection sensor manufacturers and hence enjoys dominance. A resurgence in the industrial sector following the weak economic conditions prevalent during the economic recession is expected to revive investments in industrial automation, benefiting market demand in Europe during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.
