The global laser sensor market size reached US$ 601.4 Million in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 1080.0 Million by 2027, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 10.45% during 2022-2027.

A laser sensor is an electrical device used for sensing the precise location of objects. It is a self-contained, pinpoint laser emitter that produces light in a straight line, which is reflected into the receiver for contactless measurement. Some commonly available laser sensors include charge-coupled devices (CCD), complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS), photoelectric sensors and positive sensitive detectors. Laser sensors offer various benefits, including high reliability, accuracy, sensitivity and control with minimal deviation. They are used for stamping, engraving and various manufacturing applications, such as laser manufacturing, 3D imaging and sensing, material processing and micromachining. They also find extensive application for material height and thickness measurement, weld gap detection, train and railroad inspection and crane positioning.

Laser Sensor Market Trends:
The increasing requirement for automation across industries, such as manufacturing, aviation, construction and automotive, is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Laser sensors are widely used for manufacturing plant automation and management, security, surveillance and motion and guidance. Moreover, the widespread adoption of miniaturized sensors is providing a thrust to the market growth. For instance, laser sensors are installed in the Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) systems of automobiles for the detection of objects and mapping the distances. Additionally, various technological advancements, such as the integration of laser sensors with the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) solutions, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. These innovative sensors are widely used in the food and beverage industry for screening assembly lines and maintaining consistent food standards of processed food products. Other factors, including the increasing adoption of smart manufacturing practices, along with rapid industrialization, especially in the developing economies, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
