Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Optical Sensors Market Analysis and Forecast (2013 - 2018): Types (Position, Ambient Light, Motion, Proximity, Image); Verticals (Industrial, Automotive, Defense, Commercial)" report to their offering.

Optical sensors are electronic detectors which work on the presence or absence of light or infrared rays and convert the same into an electronic signal. Usually they are part of a much larger system where this electronic signal is interpreted or analyzed in different ways to produce a result like presence of a person, capturing an image, movement of an object or position of an object and so on.

The Global Optical sensor market is rapidly growing across the globe due to the increase in demand for handheld devices like tablets and smart phones. Smart phones and tablets are very rapidly growing and are here to stay and as long as the market persists there will be increase in demand for optical sensors like light and proximity sensors.

The Global Optical sensor market is slated to grow at 5-6 % CAGR year on year for next 5 years. The market is estimated to reach $18.7bn by 2018.
