As per the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Light Sensors Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” offers a comprehensive analysis of the industry, which comprises insights on light sensors market growth. The report also includes competitor and regional analysis, and contemporary advancements in the global market. The global light sensors market size reached US$ 2.9 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 5.2 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 10.4% during 2022-2027.

Light sensors represent devices used to measure radiant energy that ranges in frequency from infrared (IR) to ultraviolet (UV) light spectrum and converts it into electrical signals. These sensors can be connected to a sprinkler system to help farmers in keeping crops hydrated. They can also be utilized with weather-monitoring equipment to optimize the watering schedule. In line with this, light sensors are versatile and economical. Consequently, they are extensively used in freight shipping to detect the change in light exposure whenever a container is opened. As such, light sensors find wide-ranging applications in computers, television (TV) remotes, modern smartphones, automobiles, streetlamps, etc., to adjust the brightness and turn on the lights automatically.
