Overview of the global UV sensor market

The UV sensor market will register a CAGR of more than 29% by 2021. The growth of the IoT industry will be one of the primary factors fueling the growth of the UV sensor market during the next few years. Internet of Things (IoT) aids in the connection of electronic devices to the Internet, which in turn, reduces the need for human intervention. To ensure the efficient performance of this technology and to aid in mobile sensing, devices connected to an IoT network use a number of sensors and actuators. In the coming years, IoT will find significance in several applications including wearable devices, smart homes, industrial automation, and automated cars. It has been predicted that the IoT devices market will grow at a significant pace and will be worth almost USD 1.4 billion by 2021. With the growth of the IoT industry, the demand for sensors will subsequently increase, fueling the growth of the UV sensor market.

The use of UV sensors in wearables will be one of the major trends that will gain traction in the UV sensor market during the next few years. Consumers are increasingly adopting wearable devices as a functional addition to their life as these devices monitor the daily activities and health of the individual and also enable connected communication. The integration of UV sensors in wearables devices will help in preventing sunburns and skin blemishes by alerting individuals when the UV levels go beyond danger limits. In addition to wearable devices, these sensors are also used in smartphones. One of the major smartphone manufacturer Samsung has already equipped its Galaxy Note 4 UV sensor. Incorporated with the Samsung's S Health app, the sensor measures UV radiation and prevents users from damaging their skin, which helps in reducing the risk of skin cancer.
