Global Color Detection Sensor Market 2017-2021

About Color Detection Sensor

A color detection sensor is a type of photoelectric sensor. The primary function of a color detection sensor is to detect different colors and deploy or undertake a particular action. Color detection sensors use light to digital (LTD), light to frequency (LTF), and light to voltage (LTV) approaches to sense light and colors. The basic principle of a color detection sensor is the energetic reflection principle. In this principle, the partial spectra of red, blue, and green are separately evaluated. For example, the light falling on a green surface will result in the reflection of the green part of the spectrum (and absorb the blue and red parts).

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global color detection sensor market to grow at a CAGR of 10.29% during the period 2017-2021.
