Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Laser Sensors Market
Laser sensors are used to detect the presence of objects based on the intensity of light or their position. Laser sensors comprise optical components, lasers, and photoelectric devices, and are embedded with laser technology that measures a variety of parameters depending upon the application. It can be used on numerous reflective surfaces, materials, colors in several industrial sectors. The escalating demand for sensor technologies across multiple industries to ensure high accuracy in measuring dimensions, including thickness and height, coupled with the diameter, is expected to stimulate the growth of the laser sensors market. The evolving semiconductor laser technologies are transforming industrial automation processes across the globe. Industries, including electronics and automotive, are greatly advancing with the application of laser manufacturing, and 3D sensing & imaging.
The spread of COVID-19 from China has considerably impacted the laser sensors industry. The rapid spread of the pandemic has initiated lockdowns in several countries, disrupting supply chain activities and shutting down numerous manufacturing plants. The slowdown caused in the production of new laser sensors have severely impacted the growth of such industries and thus hampered the market growth.
Companies across the globe are focused on lowering operational costs for surviving in the laser sensors market. The future manufacturing of laser sensors and related devices in the post-lockdown period is expected to drive the growth of the market. Government initiatives and relaxations in the lockdowns are expected to boost the demand for laser sensors over the forecasted timeframe. Industry players adopting remote working policies to prevent the spread of COVID-19 at workplaces will support the recovery of the laser sensors market. Thus, the demand for laser sensors and related products is expected to increase due to the rising adoption of such advanced products in the automotive and electronics sectors.
