Growth Of The Fiber Bragg Grating Market In Europe Is Forecasted To Expand Steadily In The Near Future
A fiber Bragg grating (FBG) is a type of distributed Bragg reflector fabricated in a short segment of optical fiber which acts as a filter that reflects particular wavelengths of light and transmits all others. Fiber Bragg grating (FBG) is a type of reflector placed in optical fiber that reflects particular wavelength of light and transmits the required one. FGBs are made by exposing the core of single-mode fiber to a periodic pattern of high ultraviolet light. This produces a permanent increase in refractive index, creating a fixed index modulation according to exposure pattern.
Global Fiber Bragg Grating Market Dynamics:
Continuous improvements related to fiber Bragg grating writing system, i.e. flexible automation of fiber and mask handling design, is expected to result in increased demand for Fiber Bragg Grating Market, as it is widely used in optical sensing applications. Besides fiber Bragg gratings have several applications in telecommunications and oil & gas industries, application scope is also wide and increasing for smart manufacturing and non-destructive testing, which includes composites, laminates, etc. It is also widely used in pressure, strain, and temperature sensing.
Fiber Bragg grating lacks appropriate sensitivity, correct dynamic range, and adherence to engineering standards which can limit use of fiber Bragg gratings. In addition, fiber Bragg grating is not easily replaceable without disturbing continuity and functionality of networks, which is expected to hamper growth of the global fiber Bragg grating market.
Product type segment includes uniform and non-uniform. The non-uniform fiber Bragg grating segment is estimated to account for a major revenue share in 2017, and is estimated to continue its dominance over the forecast period.
On the basis of region/country, the global market is segmented US, Europe, China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan. The market in Europe is expected to account for major revenue of US$ 139.1 Mn in 2017.
Key players in the global market include TECHNICA OPTICAL COMPONENTS LLC, AOS GmbH, Ascentta, Inc., FORC — Photonics, Hottinger Baldwin Messtechnik GmbH, ITF Technologies Inc., FBGS Technologies GmbH, ADVANCED PHOTONICS INTERNATIONAL INC., Micron Optics, Inc., Smart Fibers Ltd., IDIL Optical Fibers, iXBlue Photonics, O/E Land Inc., Optromix, Hexatronic Group AB (publ), QPS Photronics Inc., TeraXion, Inc., Raysung photonics Inc., Timbercon, Inc., and INFIBRA TECHNOLOGIES Srl.
