The shortcomings and limitations of traditional sensing technologies paved the way for the emerging field of fiber optic sensing.Optical fibers are light-weight, passive and unobtrusive sensing wires with a thickness comparable to a human hair.

Optical fiber sensing allows movement away from traditional discrete measurement points to continuous measurements visualizing strain and temperature gradients, pressure, multi-directional force, curvature, and shape information.The technology is being used today in various industries ranging from industrial processing, structural health monitoring and energy to aerospace, medical, and safety and security.

Fiber optic sensors remain a technology with much promise but only niche applications.Fiber optics have the greatest market success where the unique attributes of optics cannot be replicated.

Medical and defense are the two markets where optics have a distinct advantage over competing electronic options. However, costs remain stubbornly high, and low-cost competing sensor technologies create a tough technological environment for growth.

Fiber optics are inert and biocompatible, limiting the risk of contamination and infection within the body.Medical applications of fiber optic sensors offer the greatest potential for growth in the next five years, but that growth depends on the devices obtaining the requisite approval for use in humans.

Research results are promising, but market entry dates have slipped.

Revenues for the worldwide fiber optic sensor market are presented in the following table.Global market value is projected to increase from REDACTED in 2020 to more than REDACTED in 2025.

This equates to a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of REDACTED during the forecast period from 2020 through 2025.
