Photoelectric sensors are gaining popularity due to their high reliability and long-range object detection capabilities, irrespective of the size, shape, color, material, and surface properties of objects. These sensors are designed to operate under harsh conditions; moreover, they are enabled with advanced technologies to ensure reliable suppression of undesirable reflections. These abilities makes them more versatile than many other sensor types and appropriate for industrial usage. For instance, retro reflective sensors with polarization filters detect the position of carriage of any shape and material, which is to be kept on and off the track of a rollercoaster. Further, photoelectric sensors are widely used in the military and aerospace industries owing to their high accuracy and reliable performance. They are used in cargo aircraft for smoke and fire detection. In addition, photoelectric sensors help airframe and engine manufacturers to monitor aerospace system parameters such as pressure, temperature, acceleration, optical position, and speed. Moreover, the defense industry is extensively using biological detection equipment for detecting the presence of chemical substances in environment and for assessing the risk of potential biological threats by detecting harmful biological materials, to safeguard both military and civilian populations. Thus, the accuracy and reliability of photoelectric sensor operations make them a preferred sensor type in harsh industrial conditions.
According to the latest report from the World Health Organization (WHO), the US, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, the UK, Russia, Turkey, Brazil, Iran, and China are among the worst-affected countries due to the COVID-19 outbreak. In 2020, the world economy suffered significant consequences, and the effects are expected to endure to some extent in coming years. The outbreak disrupted primary industries such as electronics, semiconductor, and manufacturing. A sharp decline in the growth of these industries is limiting the growth of the photoelectric sensor market. Factory shutdowns, travel and trade bans, and border lockdowns to combat and contain the infection have negatively impacted manufacturing, supply, and sales of various sensor products.
Manufacturers of photoelectric sensors are focusing on lowering operating costs to stay competitive. However, they are expected to resume production activities during the post-lockdown phase. Government initiatives to boost economies and relaxations in the lockdowns are expected to fuel demand for photoelectric sensors during the forecast period. Demand for photoelectric sensors is likely to expand as new technologies become more widely adopted in the automotive and aerospace industries.

Pharmaceutical companies focus on improving their overall manufacturing operations by avoiding discrepancies such as empty packaging, which can be caused due to the unavailability of medicine tablets on the production line. The industry is increasingly deploying photoelectric sensors for tablet counting, bottle filling, and count verification (in clinical trials). These sensors are also being used in automated prescription fulfillment machines at retail pharmacies and hospitals. Further, advancements in photoelectric sensors in terms of their sensing range, which is improving their counting accuracy, along with maintaining a hygienic production environments by excluding human contacts while packaging of medicine are the benefits associated with photoelectric sensors. Also, photoelectric sensor provides a cost-effective solution, which is attained through automatic production line in the pharmaceutical industry. Hence,
the surge in the adoption of photoelectric sensors in pharmaceutical companies is mainly attributed to their abilities to enhance efficiencies, reduce industry’s operational costs, and facilitate real-time production monitoring. These sensors automate the upper and lower levels of liquid measurement in jar or tank. The use of strong corrosive chemicals (acidic or basic) is commonplace in pharmaceutical companies, and thus, the detection of liquid levels in storage tanks is an important task in these plants. Thus, increasing use of photoelectric sensors in the pharmaceuticals industry would drive the photoelectric sensor market growth in the coming years.
