Rapid Growth in Real-time Monitoring predicted to uplift the Global Distributed Fiber Optic Sensor Market.

The globally distributed fiber optic sensor market stood at US$ 1,027.3 Mn in 2018 and is expected to reach US$ 2,698.2 Mn by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 11.4% during the year forecast from 2019 to 2027.Distributed fiber optic sensing is a novel technology that has gained a prominent pace in the recent past. The prime factor attributed to the market growth is its disruptive capabilities, such as real-time and continuous measurement of the physical parameters such as temperature, strain, pressure, and others. In addition, a surge in demand for real-time sensors to detect the fault and risks prior to its period to prevent damages has flourished the market growth prominently. These days, distributed fiber optic sensors are largely used for pipeline monitoring in the oil & gas industry, infrastructure monitoring, geotechnical monitoring, electric power & substation monitoring, and many others.

Market Synopsis

Scattering Process Analysis

Rayleigh Scattering Effect expected to witness a Flourishing Growth during the Forecast Period.

The Raman scattering effect led the globally distributed fiber optic sensor market in 2018 and is anticipated to follow the same trend over the forecast period. This scattering process is widely preferred because of its accuracy in the measurement of physical parameters along with its ability to uphold the balance between a range in which it senses the physical parameters. In the wake of the same, the Raman scattering effect seeks lucrative growth in civil and oil & gas applications.

On the other hand, the Rayleigh scattering effect is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. The prime factor accounting for the escalating segment growth is high sensitivity. The sensor has almost equal sensitivity for any changes in the parameters such as temperature, pressure, strain, and others. In addition, this scattering process is used to track the propagating effect, which helps in analyzing various parameters.

End-use Industry Analysis

Oil & Gas Captured Lucrative Market Revenue Share in the year 2018.

In 2018, the oil & gas industry dominated the globally distributed fiber optic sensor market in terms of revenue share. Increasing adoption of distributed sensing technology in pipeline monitoring and infrastructure health monitoring accounts for the prime factor contributing to the significant segment growth. Furthermore, increasing research & development for pipeline monitoring and gas leakage detection is anticipated to portray the oil & gas industry as the largest user of distributed fiber optical sensors during the forecast period.
