Global Distributed Fiber Optic Sensor Market Research Report: Forecast (2023-2028)

Global Distributed Fiber Optic Sensor Market Key Driver:

Growing Hydropower Projects to Facilitate the Market Growth - Some of the Nordic nations including Asian countries like China, India, Pakistan, etc., have been majorly focusing on the development of hydropower projects owing to the increasing demand for power solutions from various sectors. This, in turn, catalyzes the construction of dams over rivers as well as the expansion of power transmission networks, hence promulgating the demand for distributed fiber optic sensors. The distributed fiber optic sensors are used for dam monitoring and developed dams are also used for irrigation purposes.

Furthermore, hydroelectricity has been considered a renewable energy resource, therefore high penetration of renewable energy resources globally is expected to escalate the potential demand for distributed fiber optic sensors in the forecast years. For the construction of hydropower projects, the companies are also collaborating. Some of the recently announced hydropower projects worldwide are:

  • In 2023, the government of India approved 2,880 MW hydroelectric power plant in Arunachal Pradesh with an investment of around USD3.9 billion.
  • In 2022, International Finance Corp. (IFC) collaborated with EDF Group for the development of hydroelectric power plant of capacity around 350 MW in the southern African country of Malawi.  

Global Distributed Fiber Optic Sensor Market Possible Restraint:

High Cost of Distributed Fiber Optic Sensors to Hinder the Market - In various end-user industries, distributed fiber optic sensors have become desirable due to their various advantages like to monitor difficult work environments and gaining real-time data with high accuracy. However, the relatively high cost of them is restricting its installations in many areas and its maintenance cost is also considered high which is still not affordable by many companies requiring real-time monitoring and sensing. Therefore, the high cost of the distributed fiber optic is estimated to pose a challenge to the Global Distributed Fiber Optic Sensor market in the forecast years.

Global Distributed Fiber Optic Sensor Market Growth Opportunity:

Expansion of Electric Utilities in Rural Areas to Augment the Distributed Fiber Optic Sensor Demand - The rising urbanization in several regions such as Africa, Asia Pacific, some parts of the Middle East, etc., has necessitated the requirement for electricity. Due to this, various electric utilities are in the development stage in rural parts of the world. This is also leading to the diversification of transmission lines, thus accelerating the installation of them. Moreover, the expansion of solar and wind power projects in the nations in Europe, Asia Pacific, etc., are also resulting in the expansion of electric utilities. Therefore, the rising expansion of electric utilities would likely fuel the demand for distributed fiber optic sensors in the forthcoming years. For instance:

  • In 2022, Jordan’s National Electric Power Company started the construction of the Jordan-Iraq power transmission project. In addition, the 400 KV and 300 Km long transmission lines would connect the Al-Risha substation in Jordan with Al-Qaim electrical transformation station in Iraq and the project would be accomplished by Dubai Cable Company.

Global Distributed Fiber Optic Sensor Market Key Trend:

Technological Advancements in Distributed Fiber Optic Sensors to Propagate the Market - Currently, the integration of advanced technologies, such as Real-Time Thermal Rating (RTTR) and intelligent Distributed Acoustic Sensor (iDAS) technologies, etc., are some of the prominent trends observed in the industry. In parallel, a rising number of investments to carry out research and development to introduce innovative fiber cables and provide reliable connectivity at high speed and the lowest possible price also emerges as a trend in the industry.
