• Optoelectronic sensor is a combination of optical and electronic systems. An optoelectronic sensor is an electrical-to-optical or optical-to-electrical transducer used for numerous applications.
  • These sensors are used in pressure sensors, security systems, atmospheric particle measurement, close tolerance measurement, and quality control etc.
  • Optoelectronic sensors are segmented into three types: retro-reflective, through-beam, and diffuse optoelectronic sensors, and these are used in various applications such as oil & gas, chemical & petrochemical, water & wastewater, power industry, electronics and semiconductors, packaging, robotics, safety detection, and accurate measurement.

Rise in Demand for Use in Consumer Electronics

  • Optoelectronic sensors are largely used in consumer electronics, as it offers advanced features and are technologically advanced. Optoelectronic sensors are foreseen to replace traditional electronics by surpassing them in terms of cost, performance, and consistency in consumer electronics devices.
  • Moreover, rising demand for sophisticated devices delivering efficient solutions, dynamic application areas, and adaptability of portable devices in consumer electronics is expected to drive the optoelectronic sensors market during the forecast period.
  • In July 2019, Vishay Intertechnology, Inc., launched a new ambient light optoelectronic sensor for use in small applications such as smart watches and sport bands. By continuously launching new products, Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. aims to increase its product portfolio.
