Global UV Sensor Market 2017-2021

Global UV Sensor Market 2017-2021

About UV Sensor

UV sensors are designed to respond to specific regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. UVA rays have a wavelength of 320-400 nm, and UVB rays have a wavelength of 280-320 nm. UV rays with a wavelength shorter than 280 nm are considered as UVC rays. The intensity of UV light and exposure to UV rays can be measured in several ways. The simplest method is by using the UV index system. It is a comparative tool that is used to compare the standard results with the results derived from UV sensors.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global UV sensor market to grow at a CAGR of 29.15% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global UV Sensor Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global UV sensor market: Broadcom, and STMicroelectronics.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Balluff, Davis Instruments, LAPIS Semiconductor, Panasonic, Solar Light, and Vernier Software & Technology.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is use of UV sensors in wearables. The adoption of wearable devices among consumers has increased to enhance the quality of life. Wearables facilitate a mobile form of communication technology, which can be operated while being attached to a body part. Wearables are also used to monitor daily activities. Wearable devices include smart watches; smart glasses, such as Google Glass; smart fabrics; heart rate monitors; and fitness tracking gadgets, such as Fitbit Surge.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is growing efficiency in automotive segment. Modern-day cars are equipped with many sensors for various applications, and many more applications are expected to arise during the forecast period. In the automotive segment, consumers are increasingly demanding features that improve safety, stability, handling, comfort, performance, convenience, and other attributes of a vehicle. UV imaging facilitates the automatic detection of scratches and digs on optical surfaces, such as lenses and windows in vehicles.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is miniaturization affecting sensor performance. Every technology goes through miniaturization after a certain stage to increase efficiency and to reduce the developmental costs. As devices that use magnetic sensors are becoming smaller, vendors are compelled to manufacture small and compact sensors. However, a major challenge is the decrease in performance due to the miniaturization of hall-effect sensors. Miniaturization decreases the efficiency of 3D magnetic sensors as the magneto power acquisition becomes very low with the reduction in size.
