Public awareness and industrial modernisation is driving the growth of the global distributed fibre optic sensor market

Enhanced public awareness about distributed fibre optic sensors and an increase in demand from core sectors such as oil, gas, telecom, heavy industries, railways, and the military is expediting the growth of the global distributed fibre optic sensor market. Apart from private players the government is also heavily procuring and using distributed fibre optics in different projects. To reduce the impending cost of a big project most of the private and government players are implanting distributed fibre optic sensors and this is likely to fuel the overall growth of the global distributed fibre optic sensor market and balance the market demand-supply ratio. The mining sector’s struggle with old technologies and the need to implement advanced technologies is opening a window of opportunity for key players operating in the global distributed fibre optic sensor market.

However, the high cost factor associated with distributed fibre optic sensors and slow economic development of some of the major markets spread across APEJ and MEA might hinder the future growth of the global distributed fibre optic sensor market.
