Global Colour Detection Sensor Market 2016-2020
About the Color Detection Sensor Market
Color detection sensors are used to sort colored products, identify coded markings, and verify or detect the presence of adhesive or date codes on a package. These sensors can detect even a slight variation in color and are used in several industries.
The demand for color detection sensors will mainly be driven by automation across manufacturing industries during the forecast period. Industrial automation involves the use of computers and control systems (integrated with sensors and IoT and M2M technologies) to ease the production process. The rising capital expenditures in industries such as oil and gas, power, and automotive are fueling the demand for industrial automation and, therefore, color detection sensors. Further, the growth of the smartphone and tablet markets is set to increase the demand for color detection sensors during the forecast period, as these sensors form an important component of mobile devices. The growth of the food packaging market is also an important driver for the global color detection sensor market.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global color detection sensor market to grow at a CAGR of 8.68% during the period 2016-2020.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Color Detection Sensor Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global color detection sensor market: ams, Banner Engineering, Balluff, Baumer, Hamamatsu Photonics, Keyence, Omron, Pepperl + Fuchs, Rockwell Automation, SICK, and SensoPart.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A trend which is expected to have a positive impact on the market over the long term is the emergence of true color and spectral sensing technologies. Advanced technologies such as true color sensing and spectral sensing are emerging as new trends in the market. These light sensors include biosensing, which captures personal health data along with providing innovative light sensor applications. Biosensors detect chemical compounds by using biochemical reactions or biomolecules as sensing agents. The reactions are enabled by biological components such as an enzyme, organelle, or a whole cell. The biochemical activity is detected by sensors, which enable advanced applications such as label-free detection of certain molecules such as DNA or single proteins, and sensitive molecular kinetics measurements.”
According to the report, a key growth driver is the proliferation of color sensors in smartphones. Color detection sensors are used in smartphones for the detection of color brightness, temperature, and RGB components of ambient light. In recent years, most companies began integrating smartphones with color sensors that help analyze the RGB components of light to adjust the display image and perform backlight dimming based on the surrounding brightness levels.
Further, the report states that one challenge that could hamper market growth is low reliability in harsh conditions. Color detection sensors are made up of plastic, meaning they cannot provide long-term reliability. This design is suitable for some environments, but harsh environments in industrial setups tend to damage these sensors and generate the need for frequent replacement.
