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, 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.
Technological advancements such as use of Draw-tower process in manufacturing of fiber Bragg grating is in turn resulting in production of higher quality fiber Bragg grating arrays and arrays of different Bragg periods.
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.
Fiber-optic connectivity is proving beneficial to organizations that use cloud-based services for apps or data storage. Fiber, coupled with voice-over-IP (VoIP) telephony, is a powerful combination for business communications. As a result, an increasing number of companies are opting for various combinations to improve operations, productivity, and efficiency of business.
Market Analysis by Fiber Bragg Grating Product Type:
Among the product type segments, uniform fiber Bragg grating type segment in the global fiber Bragg grating market is estimated to register a CAGR of over 14% over the forecast period. This can be attributed to increasing adoption of acrylic fiber Bragg grating due to its strong wavelength reflected as it satisfies the Bragg condition.
The non-uniform fiber Bragg grating segment in the global fiber Bragg grating market is estimated to account for revenue share of over 40%, owing to its increasing use of chirped fiber Bragg grating in various applications, including in telecom, sensing, instrumentation, and microwave photonic is estimated to boost revenue growth of the non-uniform fiber Bragg grating segment over the forecast period. Non-uniform fiber Bragg grating includes chirped fiber Bragg grating, Gaussian Apodized, and zero-mean Gaussian.
Analysis by Application:
On the basis of application segments, optical fiber sensing segment is projected to register highest CAGR of over 15% owing to factors such as fiber Bragg grating sensors’ ability to overcome challenges associated with electrical sensing such as being lightweight, miniaturized, and having low thermal conductivity, etc.
Revenue year-on-year growth of industrial segment in the global fiber Bragg grating market is estimated to increase moderately during the forecast period. This is owing to increasing demand for optical fiber sensors from the oil and gas industry and construction sector for structural health monitoring is further expected to support growth of the segment over the forecast period.
Use of sensors in optical fiber for measurement as proximity, acceleration, vibration, strain, chemical pressure, liquid level, etc. are other factors expected to drive demand and adoption.
