Increasing Use of Gallium Arsenide Infrared LEDs to Fuel Photointerrupter Market Growth
Photointerrupters are increasingly being used in a variety of industries, including industrial equipment, office equipment, home appliances, and consumer electronics. Various trade shows and expos have also assisted photointerrupter manufacturing companies in expanding their customer base and significantly contributing to the growth of global photointerrupter market. The Photointerrupters industry sold 1104 M pieces in 2018 and is expected to reach 1976 M pieces by 2025. Photointerrupter detects light blockage when a target object comes between both elements, acting as an optical switch. Gallium Arsenide Infrared LEDs are the most used light sources in photointerrupters. Shielded NPN silicon phototransistors are the most used detection elements. The increasing use of gallium arsenide infrared LED in night vision cameras is the primary market driver. For instance, gallium arsenide infrared LEDs with wavelengths of 940nm are widely used in remote controllers, while gallium arsenide infrared LEDs with wavelengths of 808nm are widely used in medical treatment appliances and space optical communication.
Some photointerrupters have optical encoding, which allows them to detect direction and speed. Its applications have grown exponentially in combination with the rise of industrial automation, which is driving its market. The global industrial automation market has grown from US$175 Bn in 2020 to US$190 Bn in 2021.

Considering the volatility of business today, traditional approaches to strategizing a game plan can be unfruitful if not detrimental. True ambiguity is no way to determine a forecast. A myriad of predetermined factors must be accounted for such as the degree of risk involved, the magnitude of circumstances, as well as conditions or consequences that are not known or unpredictable. To circumvent binary views that cast uncertainty, the application of market research intelligence to strategically posture, move, and enable actionable outcomes is necessary.View Methodology
