Monthly Journal Published: The first-week of each month

Fee:                 $1,200 per year (12-issues) of the Monthly Journals 
Contact:           stephen_montgomery@electronicastconsultants.com
ElectroniCast publishes a summary-level report of the latest market and technology trends covering the area of fiber optic sensors

This journal provides a review and analysis of current market and technology trends relative to the consumption of communication-based fiber optic sensors. The journal (PDF file: typically 25-35 pages), released at the beginning of each month, via e-mail, providing our clients with insights to the innovative applications of fiber optic sensors.

The journal typically presents information in three sections:
·        Fiber Optic Sensors – Market Overview
      ·        Selected Highlights of Technology Presentations and Company News
·        Calendar – Future Conferences                 

Summary-level consumption trends are provided for various measurand or technology.  The trends for each selected sensor, in turn, is segmented into various applications. The information is presented in easy-to-follow illustrations and text. 

The complete quantitative Microsoft Excel market forecast worksheets and competitive market share estimates are released every September for clients that subscribe to the Fiber Optic Sensors Market Forecast annual report; however, the monthly reports provide summary-level market forecast data updates and the latest industry news.

For professionals concerned with fiber optic sensor markets and technology. 

We believe you will find this journal useful for your planning of product and market development.  Please contact us with any questions or comments.
