Distributed Fiber Optic Sensor Market Development, Growth and Demand, Drivers Forecast to 2026

This article was originally published on this site

Feb 13, 2020 (Heraldkeepers) — Distributed fiber optic sensors refer to the complex integration of distributed sensing technology along the entire length of fiber cable to achieve real-time and continuous measurements. Distributed fiber optics sensors offer the monitoring of wide range of variables such as, acoustic perturbations, temperature, and strain among others. As distributed fiber optics sensors can withstand high temperature and are poor conductor of electricity and resistant to electromagnetic interference, these sensors are mostly used in the region with high voltage electricity. Distributed fiber optics sensors provides an extra advantage over the traditional electronic sensors with light weight, low cost, high band, radio frequency interference immunity (RFI) and electromagnetic interference (EMI).

Market Overview

Distributed sensing is a novel technology that allows constant, real-time measurement of different physical parameters along the length of the optical fiber. Fiber optic sensors are used for monitoring critical infrastructure or facilities. This allows the maintenance workers to keep a constant profile of acoustics, temperature, or strain conditions along the length of the fiber. Moreover, it offers vital information regarding various applications and provides cost-efficient option for physical monitoring of various parameters, even in challenging working conditions. The optical fiber used in this is the sensing element without any additional transducer in the optical path. Its working is similar to radar where interrogator sends a series of pulses in the optical fiber and records the return of the naturally occurring distorted signal against the time. In this process, the distributed sensor computes at all points along the optical fiber. Moreover, the optical fiber is the sensor thus, it is cost-effective and can easily be deployed in some of the most challenging environments. 

Market Dynamics

Increase in the global demand for oil and gas, power and utility, safety and security are the major factor driving the growth of the global distributed fiber optic sensor market. Distributed fiber optic sensor have the ability to optimize and operate the resources in the oil and gas industry, as they can monitor the entire length of the pipeline structure. Moreover, growing focus on oil recovery, surge in capital investments for thermal-enhanced oil improvement techniques and emergence of multi-lateral hydraulic fracturing technologies are expected to further augment the growth of global distributed fiber optic sensor market during forecast period.
