Distributed Fiber Optic Sensing Market: Overview
Distributed fiber optic sensing is a technology that offers unique possibilities for the real-time, continuous measurement of a number of variables such as acoustic perturbations, strain, and temperature. Unlike traditional sensing technologies that depend on the inputs from discrete sensors at pre-determined points, distributed sensing depends utilizes the entire length of the optical fiber. Thus, the optical fiber used in the sensing setup is the sensing element, barring any need for additional transducers or manufactured sensors in the optical path. As a result, distributed fiber optic sensing is a cost-effective technology and can be deployed even in the remotest, most unusual, and harshest environments.

Distributed Fiber Optic Sensing Market: Trends and Opportunities
The global market for distributed fiber optic sensors has witnessed growth and development at an impressive pace in the past few years. Increased research activities in the area have led to the better understanding of the several potential applications of distributed sensing, especially in the field of civil engineering. Distributed fiber optic sensing solutions are now increasingly used for applications such as pipeline monitoring, geotechnical monitoring, dam monitoring, and bridge monitoring. The increased employment of distributed sensing solutions in the oil and gas industry will also emerge as a leading contributor to the overall development of the global distributed fiber optic sensing market in the next few years.
Distributed Fiber Optic Sensing Market: Market Potential
The distributed sensing technology is finings new uses in subsea applications. Apart from the excellent structural strength, size much smaller, and connectivity strength much better than that of copper cables, distributed fiber optic sensors are garnering increased interest from the subsea exploration industry. The higher bandwidth of fiber optic cables as compared to copper cables also allow for longer step-out distances and richer data streams. As subsea exploration and production become smarter and operators increasingly demand real-time data and analysis of both the individual oil well and the entire production facility, the potential use of distributed fiber optic sensing will become more profound in the next few years.
