This industry research report identifies Banner, Baumer Group, OMRON, Pepperl+Fuchs, and SICK as the key vendors in the global photoelectric sensors market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by technology (reflective photoelectric sensors, diffuse photoelectric sensors, and through beam photoelectric sensors), by end-user (process industries and discrete industries), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global photoelectric sensors market

Research analysis on the global photoelectric sensors market identifies that the rising awareness for maintaining the safety of industrial premises will be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of the market. Technavio's market research analysts predict that this market will grow at a CAGR of more than 8% by 2021. Photoelectric sensors are extensively used in industries to monitor the process of manufacturing and surveillance for security purposes. These sensors are equipped with in-built microprocessors which help in collecting and analysing data and also assist in sending signals to processes. They also keep track of changes in the situation in biological, chemical, physical, and radiational industries. These sensing technologies are used to ensure that the process does not face any critical situations. Conveyor belts, degradation of UV lamps, and detection of transparent mediums are some of the surveillance applications of photoelectric sensors.

In terms of geographic regions, the Americas will be the major revenue contributor to the photoelectric sensors market throughout the forecast period. The food and beverage, electronics and semiconductor, and oil and gas sectors are the major revenue contributor to the market in this region due to implementation of industrial automation. Moreover, the expansion of the automotive industry will also increase the demand for photoelectric sensors in the region.
