Ultraviolet (UV) sensors are used to measure intensity of UV radiations. UV rays are form of electromagnetic radiation that has shorter wavelengths than visible light. These sensors are deployed for determining exposure of a particular object to ultraviolet radiation in laboratory or outdoor environment. There are various types of UV sensors namely, UV phototubes, light sensors, UV spectrum sensors and few more. These radiation-sensitive sensors are also used as UV light detectors, germicidal UV detectors and photo-stability sensor. UV sensors are opted for different application including pharmaceuticals, automobiles, robotics and many more. Even in printing industry, these sensors are used for solvent handling and dyeing processes. In chemical industry, UV sensors are required for production, storage, and transportation of chemicals.
The market as has been categorized on basis of type, spectrum range, application and region. On basis of spectrum range type, UV sensors market has been segmented as UVA (315-400nm), UVB (280-315nm) and UVC (100-280nm). The market has been divided as Variable-wavelength & Photodiode array and Visible-blind & Solar-blind.
Rising demand for UV sensors in pharmaceutical and bio-pharma industry has accelerated the growth of the market during forecast period. UV sensors market was estimated to be $XX million in 2016. The market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of XX% and is forecast to reach $XX million by 2023. Americas and Europe together are estimated to occupy a share of more than XX% in 2016.
North America is held the largest market share, and it comprises of countries, such as the U.S., Mexico, and Canada. North America was followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific is the leading region for UV sensor market. Rising investments in medical and industrial automation sector in the developing region such as China and India has increased the demand of UV sensors. In medical industry, these sensors are used by the dermatology community to collect information about the sun’s intensity.
