APAC: largest industrial optoelectronic sensors market

Presently, APAC is one of the fastest growing regions with respect to the rate of industrialization occurring in the countries. This will create considerable demand for industrial optoelectronic sensors as major end-users of this region are revolutionizing their industries into digital platforms where most of the processes can be monitored from one control room.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on sensors, “One of the major factors that have contributed to the industrial development in the APAC region is the emerging oil and gas industry. Most of the players in the oil and gas industry are shifting their focus to developing countries due to the depleting layer of resources in the developed countries.”

Competitive vendor landscape

The global industrial optoelectronic sensors market is fragmented with local, regional, as well as international players. As these sensors are used for industry-specific purposes, vendors are trying to differentiate their products by introducing innovative products. Most of the vendors are targeting the oil and gas, chemical and petrochemical, and power industries as these sectors are highly prone to hazardous accidents and thereby offer immense scope for the use of optoelectronic sensors.
