Light Sensors Market Size, Share, Trends & Forecast (2021 - 2026)

As per our research report, the size of the Light Sensors Market is expected to be valued at 2.08 billion USD in 2019 and is expected to reach 4.14 billion USD in 2026, with an annualized growth of 9.3% between 2021 - 2026.

What is a Light Sensor?

Light sensors are electronic devices used to detect light. These sensors are available in many forms. A photocell or photoresistor is a sensor when the brightness of the light on it causes the change of its resistance; This change in incident light is used to detect visible light. Light sensors are products used to save energy and energy, as well as energy-saving solutions. In general, light sensors convert the energy of light into an electrical signal used in electronic products and applications. There are several types of light sensors, such as photoresistors, photodiodes, and phototransistors.

Recent Developments:

  • In 2019, Sony Company released CMOS image sensors for industrial equipment applications that have a global shutter function. Sony has acquired Transnorm Beteiligungen GmbH in Oct 2018.

  • Bosch completed the acquisition of seeo inc, and ZF lenkysysteme in 2015.

Growth Drivers

The factors which are fueling the growth of the light sensor market are an escalation of demand in infrastructure and development of smart cities, townships, buildings and homes, and the automotive sector. Further, the light sensor market is likely to expand owing to amplifying demand for electronic products like Smartphone’s and televisions, tablets, and digital displays, adoption of light sensors is constantly increasing in portable smart devices, expansion of automotive sector, energy saving ability, requirement for gesture recognition, ambient light sensing, proximity detection in electronic market, advancement of technology and increased investments from shareholders and government are prominent contribution factors for growth of the smart light sensor market.

Major Challenges

There are certain restraints which are diminishing the growth of light sensor market such as increased costs with integration of sensors due to which it is not considered to integrate light sensors in certain applications to reduce costs, reduced lifetime of devices like laptops, reduction in battery life of devices as sensors operate on batteries resulting in low adoption rate of these sensors.

The durability of Cameras, Smartphone’s, and other devices get reduced when operated continuously for a long time due to overheating as they are sensitive to temperature, and high cost of smart sensors are also likely to restrain the growth of the light sensor market.

Growth Opportunities
