A photonic sensor refers to a device that intercepts light and converts it into an electrical signal. It is commonly used for integrated emission of light detection and transmission through fiber optics and other optical components. It is also used for solar and photovoltaic cells, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), LIDAR, Laser-Induced Fluorescence (LIF), calorimetry, scintillation detection, spectrometry and biological fluorescence detection. In comparison to the traditionally used sensors, these variants are more cost-effective, compact, faster and lightweight. As a result, they find extensive applications in the early-detection and warning systems for biological hazards, structural flaws and security threats across the aerospace and defense, energy and power, healthcare and manufacturing industries.

Rapid industrialization across the globe, especially in the developing economies, along with the growing demand for enhanced safety and security solutions, is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Photonic sensors enable self-operated monitoring of industrial processes and can collect accurate data on centralized servers. Furthermore, widespread adoption of wireless sensing technology is providing a thrust to the market growth. With improvements in the fiber optics technology, photonic sensors are gaining immense traction in the manufacturing of image and illumination sensors, lasers, LED flashes and other electro-optical instruments. Additionally, various technological advancements, such as the development of advanced photonic sensors with higher performance and multi-wavelength light generation capabilities, are also contributing to the growth of the market. Other factors, including the advent of industry 4.0 revolution, along with the increasing deployment of photonic sensors for early-warning, wind measurement and turbine structural health monitoring, are anticipated to drive the market further.
