Based on sensing type, the photoelectric sensors market is segmented into through-beam sensors, diffuse-reflective sensors, retro-reflective sensors, distance-settable sensors, and limited-reflective sensors. In 2023, the retro-reflective sensors segment is expected to account for the largest share of the photoelectric sensors market. The segment’s large market share is mainly attributed to the simplicity, cost-effectiveness, compact design, versatility, stability, and long sensing distances of retro-reflective sensors. Their reliable performance and adaptability to different object types and environments contribute to their popularity. Also, these sensors have reduced maintenance and installation costs and are ideal for reliably detecting transparent objects. They can also efficiently detect large and small objects.
Based on sensing distance, the photoelectric sensors market is segmented into less than 300 mm, 300 mm to 1000 mm, 1000 mm to 10,000 mm, and more than 10,000 mm. In 2023, the 300 mm to 1000 mm segment is expected to account for the largest share of the photoelectric sensors market. The segment’s large share is attributed to the sensors’ features, such as short-range and long-range object detection and compact sizes. These benefits drive the adoption of 300 mm to 1000 mm sensors among logistics and packaging companies. The integration of these sensors also increases the profitability of packaging and handling operations.
Based on structure, the photoelectric sensors market is segmented into amplifier built-in, power supply built-in, amplifier-separated, and fiber. In 2023, the amplifier built-in segment is expected to account for the largest share of the photoelectric sensors market. The segment’s large share is attributed to the extensive use of amplifier built-in photoelectric sensors in ICS and wafer detection applications in semiconductor manufacturing. Moreover, these sensors are used for the reliable detection of long-range objects with a low impact of curves and gloss on their sensing capabilities. Amplifier built-in photoelectric sensors are widely used in industrial manufacturing and automotive applications.
Based on beam source, the photoelectric sensors market is segmented into infrared beam, red beam, green beam, blue beam, and three color beam. In 2023, the red beam segment is expected to account for the largest share of the photoelectric sensors market. The segment’s large share is attributed to the visibility, contrast, human eye sensitivity, cost-effectiveness, and power efficiency of photoelectric sensors with red beam sources. Their reliability and compatibility with various environments and detection requirements contribute to their widespread use in industrial automation, object detection, and position-sensing applications.
Based on output, the photoelectric sensors market is segmented into digital and analog. In 2023, the digital segment is expected to account for the larger share of the photoelectric sensors market. The segment’s large share is attributed to the sensors’ growing use in key applications such as object detection. Photoelectric sensors with digital output offer both design and operational advantages over sensors with analog output. Digital photoelectric sensors offer enhanced technical performance, improved safety margins, and reduced maintenance costs compared to analog sensors.
Based on end use, the photoelectric sensors market is segmented into consumer electronics, automotive & transportation, packaging, pharmaceutical & medical, food & beverage, building automation, industrial manufacturing, and other end uses. In 2023, the automotive & transportation segment is expected to account for the largest share of the photoelectric sensors market. Photoelectric sensors are used in several automotive and transportation applications, such as enabling advanced electronic power steering systems, detecting automobiles in parking lots, and detecting shiny objects. The low costs of photoelectric sensor manufacturing and mandatory emission regulations have also led to the increased use of these sensors in the automotive & transportation industry. For instance, the Euro 6 standards for exhaust emissions in Europe require a 56% reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions from diesel engines.
Based on geography, the photoelectric sensors market is segmented into Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. In 2023, Asia-Pacific is expected to account for the largest share of the photoelectric sensors market. Asia-Pacific’s large market share is attributed to the region’s growing demand for automation solutions that use photoelectric sensors for automotive & transportation, industrial manufacturing, food & beverage, and packaging applications. Moreover, the rising demand for nanotechnology has created significant opportunities for the growth of the photoelectric sensors market in Asia-Pacific.
