Global Color Detection Sensors Market: Growth, Future Prospects, & Competitive Analysis, 2018 - 2026

Published By: Brisk Insights | Published On: Oct 26, 2021




Color sensors are potent sensing devices capable of sensing color, light, and differentiating accordingly. They calculate the chromaticity co-ordinates using reflected radiation, compare them with formerly collected reference colors, and ensure color consistency in continual output processes. Although awareness regarding the benefits offered by these sensors is minimal, they are steadily gaining prominence across industries such as packaging, printing, textile, food and packaging, consumer electronics, automotive, healthcare, and oil & gas to identify minute variations of color, distinguish coded markings, and ensure color consistency among others.


Positive outlook of the food packaging industry coupled with stringent regulations with respect to efficient packaging and coded marking is expected to influence need for color detection sensors in registration identification applications. Color sensors with improved features capable of detecting the color texture of fabric and ensure color uniformity is driving their demand in textile industries. Similarly, proliferation of smartphones integrated with color detection sensors for optimum color brightness detection is aiding the market growth.


Increasing capital investments in industries including oil and gas, automotive, and power and energy are instrumental in driving demand for industrial automation. Growing industrial automation bodes well for the growth of the related automation markets including color detection sensors. In addition, probability, customization offered, and the easy operation is stimulating the adoption of these sensors in textile and industrial manufacturing sectors. On the contrary, uncertainty with respect to the level of accuracy while operating under stringent environmental conditions is one of the major challenges that the market is grappling with. Since color detection sensors are prone to sunlight, industrial lighting, etc., the color differentiation becomes challenging for these devices. However, with advancements in technology, it is presumed that manufacturers would be able to come-up with the state-of-the-art devices with improved speed, accuracy, and fidelity, capable of sensing very minute differences in color.


In terms of value contribution, Europe led the overall color detection sensors market in 2017. Europe is house to large number of color detection sensor manufacturers and hence enjoys dominance. Resurgence in the industrial sector post weak economic conditions prevalent during economic recession is expected to resurrect investments in industrial automation, benefitting market demand in Europe during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.
