“Photoelectric sensors market to grow at CAGR of 7.0% from 2018 to 2024”
The photoelectric sensors market is expected to grow from USD 1.4 billion in 2019 to USD 2.0 billion by 2024 at a CAGR of 7.0% during the forecast period. Need for photoelectric sensors is mainly governed by rising adoption of industrial automation and increasing government initiatives. However, competent alternative technologies such as inductive, capacitive, ultrasonic which serve the relatively same purpose can hinder the growth of the market.

Reflective segment is expected to grow at highest CAGR during forecast period
The reflective market is the fastest growing segment in the photoelectric sensors market. Reflective (diffuse) sensors offer the cheapest sensing solution among all other categories of photoelectric sensors, which itself makes it quite eminent to be adopted across various applications with budget constraints. Also, with technological advancements such as laser beam and others, accuracy and sensing range are being improved. Also, one-point installation and convenience drive the increasing shipment of reflective sensors.
