ElectroniCast - Fiber Optic Sensor Market Forecast

ElectroniCast Forecast of global consumption of Point and Continuous types of fiber optic sensors, of various technology and measurand quantity, used in various applications.

Explanation of the Market Forecast Data Base Spreadsheets:

All database spreadsheets (presented in Microsoft Excel format) can be found in the Database section of the ElectroniCast study report.

The market forecast data are presented for fiber optic sensors, segmented by the following functions:

·        Consumption Value (US$, million)
·        Quantity (number/units in Thousands)
·        Average Selling Prices (ASP $, each) 

The consumption value is determined by multiplying the number of units by the average selling price. The average selling prices are based on the price of the fiber optic sensor at the initial factory level.  The consumption values are based on the end-user application and the end-user region.


The database details, for each fiber optic sensor by type, 2010-2015 by region plus global summary.  

The data are presented in three independent sorts:
                       
  • Point Fiber Optic Sensors (by measurand quantity-type)- COMPONENT LEVEL

  • Continuous Distributed Fiber Optic Sensors (by technology type) – SYSTEM LEVEL (optical fiber/cable, plus sensing elements – only)

  • Optical Communication Signal Analysis Interface- COMPONENT/MODULES               
This database is divided into eight (8) major sections (see “TABS” at the bottom of each spreadsheet):

§  Global – Point Sensors
§  America – Point Sensors
§  EMEA – Point Sensors
§  APAC – Point Sensor
§  Continuous Distributed Fiber Optic Sensor Systems (Global and Regions)
§  OSA (Optical Communication Signal Analysis Interface Components/Modules
§  Product Matrix for over 140 Fiber Optic Sensor (and related) Companies
§  Additional Market Forecast Data Tables
                       
Fiber Optic Point Sensors: Applications are listed in the left-side column on each spreadsheet (worksheet).

Fiber Optic Point Sensors: Measurand (type of measurement performed) is shown at the top of each worksheet (scroll down the Excel rows to find each Measurand type in each POINT Sensor Tab.

Optical Signal Analysis (OSA) Sensors: Applications are listed in the left-side column on each spreadsheet (worksheet).

Continuous Distributed Fiber Optic Sensor (System): The Global Summary and each Region are in the same Tab (Global is the first set of data, then America, then EMEA, and finally APAC.

Continuous Distributed Fiber Optic Sensor (System): Applications are listed in the left-side column.

Continuous Distributed Fiber Optic Sensor (System): Technology used is listed under each Application Total.

Database: OSA       The market forecast for sensing elements, components and modules used in optical communication signal analysis are located in the OSA worksheet TAB.

 These include components, sampling/interface modules and intra-enclosure (board-level) elements directly used for fiber optic sensing measurements, used in equipment such as –Oscilloscopes, OTDRs, Bit Error Rate Testers, Signal Generators, Spectrum Analyzers, and numerous other test/measurement/monitoring equipment used for communication/optical signal processing applications.

Note:  this data does not include the entire test/measurement or monitoring equipment, only the optical interface components/modules are quantified in the market data.  The forecast is segmented by the following applications:             

·        Telecommunications
·        Private Enterprise Data Networks
·        Cable TV
·        Military/Aerospace/Security
·        Other

NOTE: Any applicable fiber optic POINT sensor probe, which is counted (quantified) in the POINT fiber optic sensor market forecast (chapter 2 and also in the Excel worksheets) may also be “double-counted” in the Optical Communication Signal Processing Analysis (OSA) Interface Components/Modules Market Forecast (chapter 4 and the OSA category in the Excel worksheets). Also, therefore, the POINT sensor market data and the OSA market data should not be added and summed together.

To find the forecast of use of a particular fiber optic sensor type in a particular region, first locate the fiber optic sensor Data Base section for a particular REGION or the Global Summary, and then locate the sensor-type within a specific application structure of that regional section (TAB at the bottom of the spreadsheets).

The forecast for each fiber optic sensor-type in each region is in terms of quantity/K (multiplier of 1,000), value ($ Million) and average price (US dollars/$ per each unit). 

Note that, for a particular fiber optic sensor-type, the average prices differ slightly, and price change rates differ slightly depending on the application and by region.  This results from different typical purchase quantities, multi-year versus one-time contracts, different detailed specifications and other factors.

            Historical estimated data are presented for 2010, plus the year-by-year forecast through 2015.  The average growth rates of value, quantity and price for years 2010-2015 are shown in the right hand column on each database sheet.
