Fiber Optic Sensors Market Overview:
Fiber optic sensing is a technology used to measure chemical changes, strain, temperature, electric and magnetic fields, pressure, displacement, rotation, radiation, liquid level, flow, light intensity and vibration. Optical sensors are capable of linear and seamless sensing instead of distributed sensing; moreover, in communication applications, they act as sensors, and no power is required for sensing operations. Fiber optic sensors can also be used in high-pressure, high-temperature or corrosive environments. Additionally, these sensors are capable of remote sensing. They are widely used in oil and gas, manufacturing, infrastructure, power and utilities, automotive, and healthcare. In June 2019, Luna entered into a licensing agreement with Meggitt. The agreement aims to provide fiber optic components and technology for aircraft fire and overheat detection equipment.

Significant Market Dynamics:
The main goal behind the growing popularity of distributed sensors in this vertical is a better understanding of the structural condition and cost-effective management of infrastructure. Geotechnical structures, pipelines, bridges, and dams are major areas where structural health monitoring is gaining popularity in the civil engineering industry.
A key advantage of next-generation sensors is the ability to measure strain, temperature, or pressure at multiple locations simultaneously. At the same time, the ability to deploy distributed sensors in any challenging environment and real-time tracking of structural failures are the key reasons for the increased application of distributed sensing in the civil engineering industry.
Optical fibers must be handled with care to avoid breakage during installation. Although the design of sensor cables has greatly improved, incorrect cable deployment may not yield accurate data. Due to the high cost involved in the installation and operation of fiber optics, such failures may cause customers to be indifferent to the technology in future projects.
The deployment of cables is always risky and thus, any carelessness during the deployment or installation of fiber optics can affect the readings recorded by the sensors and cause malfunctions, thereby restraining the growth rate of the market.
Distributed fiber optic sensors collect data along the length of the fiber. This provides a lot of data, so various analytical tools are used to analyze the collected data. Across the globe, there is an increasing need to implement data-driven decisions and strategies.
These are done by finding a pattern in the data that managers can measure and then decipher insights to make better decisions and improve performance. Distributed fiber optic sensors collect data on changes in temperature, strain, vibration, or pressure at any point along the length of the fiber through light scattering.
The data is then processed using a set of algorithms, and the software can organize large amounts of data into a visualization platform that helps data engineers make decisions. The distributed fiber optic sensors market is also expected to witness growth over the forecast period as data-intensive decision-making becomes a mainstay across several industries.
Distributed sensor systems enable companies to monitor difficult work environments and obtain high-precision real-time data. The market is growing due to various advantages offered by these distributed sensors such as their accuracy and reliability.
However, the cost of the technology is still relatively high. Depending on the application, the type of cable used, and the operating conditions, the cost of a distributed fiber optic sensor system can be very high, which is still not within the reach of every company that requires real-time monitoring and sensing. Additionally, these systems are expensive to install and maintain, making their implementation difficult. Hence, the high cost of distributed fiber optic sensor systems poses a major challenge to the growth of this market.
