Rising Deployment of Photoelectric Sensors Across Industry Verticals to Augment the Market Growth

The global market for photoelectric sensors is being driven by the emerging trends encouraging automation across various industry verticals. Photoelectric sensors are able to detect objects of different materials and sizes and are hence deployed in the industrial sector to achieve efficiency and accuracy. The food and beverage segment is one of the largest end use sectors of photoelectric sensors. This can be attributed to the growing focus towards automation by minimising human intervention in material handling and packaging.

Photoelectric sensors for bottle-cap alignment and orientation, counting packed objects in a conveyor belt, and eliminating the risk of contamination that may arise from the human touch are the various factors that are significantly boosting the food and beverage sector, thereby propelling the market growth of photoelectric sensor. In addition to this, the rising adoption of photoelectric sensors in logistics automation that rely on position and object-sensing for efficient and safe operations is further catalysing the market growth of photoelectric sensor.

The Emergence of Self Driven Cars to Bolster the Market Growth of Photoelectronic Sensor

The growth in the market for photoelectric sensor is anticipated to be driven by the gradual shift towards automation in the automotive industry. The emergence of electric vehicles and self-driven cars are augmenting the demand for photoelectric sensors for the manufacturing of these vehicles, thereby propelling the market growth. During the assembly process, photoelectric sensors are used to monitor the transportation of individual components down the production line, which assists in diminishing the risk of human error. 

Additionally, photoelectric sensors are used in automatic cars for measuring distance and evaluating the position of objects, such as pedestrians or traffic lights, by ensuring the safety of the driver as well as the objects outside the vehicle.  Thus, the flourishing automotive industry with the development of new technologies is expected to be a key driving factor for the market growth of photoelectric sensor over the forecast period.
