Global Illuminometer Market Size, Trends, and Analysis - Forecasts To 2026 By Modularity (Fixed Mount, Handheld), By Measuring Range (More than 20,000 lux, Less than 20,000 lux), By End-User (Food, Pharmaceutical, Film & Television, Environmental, Construction, Automotive, Others), By Region (North America, Asia Pacific, CSA, Europe, and the Middle East and Africa); End-User Landscape, Company Market Share Analysis & Competitor Analysis
Illuminometers are used to study the light emitted from an illuminated surface, measured as the luminous flux per unit area or lux. The illuminometer used a light-sensitive photodiode to convert the light emitted from the surface into an electrical signal that is used to measure the intensity of the light. The illuminometer has to be calibrated to have the same sensitivity as a human eye and this achieved using a fiber optic cable. Illuminometers are used extensively in the food and pharmaceutical production industry. The food and pharmaceutical production industry use chemicals that are sensitive to light causing unwanted reactions during the production or storage stages. Illuminometers allow these industries to identify light sources that are emitting light that is detrimental to the products and allow corrective measures to be taken before they cause irreversible damage thereby preventing wastage and saving costs. Illuminometers are also used in the photography, film, and television industry. During photography, the photographers often use the light of varying intensity and wavelength to enhance their photographs, illuminometers allow them a wider range of control over the light source and allow them to make minute adjustments to the light sources. They are also used in the development stages of photographs as they are developed under specific wavelengths and intensity of light. Illuminometers are even used in the research field where fine control over the light in light-sensitive experiments is required. They also facilitate reproducibility of the work and allows research work to be carried out in a controlled environment. Agricultural research requires accurate information about the intensity of the light to study the growth of vegetation under varying intensities of light. Illuminometers are also used in the automotive industry to study the intensity of light emitted by light sources in automobiles. Governmental regulations place restrictions on the lower and upper limits of light emitted by headlights, taillights, and indicators to ensure visibility and prevent accidents. These regulations have increased the demand for illuminometers in the automotive production industry.
Based on modularity, the illuminometer market can be divided into handheld and fixed segments. The handheld segment is analyzed to possess the highest share and also have the highest CAGR value in the market. Handheld illuminometers are more user-friendly and are cheaper than fixed mount versions of illuminometers. They allow illuminometers to be used in various applications like the film and photography industry. Various designers use illuminometers to design stores, and artwork by controlling the light sources used. The wide range of applications of handheld illuminometers over fixed mount illuminometers is the major driver of the handheld segment.
According to the measuring range of the illuminometers, the illuminometer market can be segmented as above 20,000 lux and below 20,000 lux. The below 20,000 lux segment is analyzed to possess the highest share and also have the highest CAGR value in the market. Most applications of illuminometers do not require a range greater than 20,000 lux resulting in the below 20,00 lux segment dominating the market.
Based on the end-users of illuminometers, the illuminometer market can be segmented as food, pharmaceutical, film & television, environmental, construction, automotive, and others. The food segment is analyzed to possess the highest share and also have the highest CAGR value in the market. Foodstuff is often sensitive to light and is often stored in dark containers or is suggested to be kept away from light sources so as to prevent heating of the foodstuff which can often result in lowering of the shelf life of the product. This can even happen during the production stage and can result in wastage. To prevent wastage, food manufacturers often use illuminometers to control the light intensity in their production plants. The growth of agricultural products is also affected by the intensity of light it is being provided, illuminometers allow farmers to control the light provided to their crops to ensure ideal yield.
The North American regional segment is analyzed to possess the highest share in the market. The extensive research work carried out in agriculture is one of the major drivers of the market in this region. The large film and photography industry in the region is also heavily reliant on illuminometers to regulate light sources during shooting to attain the desired end product. Illuminometers are also used to monitor the environmental conditions of the region to ensure an ideal environment for the welfare of the local flora and fauna. Vegetation growth is heavily dependent on light intensity and excess light can affect the natural habitats of animals and insects. The APAC regionalsegment is analyzed to possess the highest CAGR value in the market. The region has seen an increase in industrialization and is slowly becoming global leaders in pharmaceutical production especially in countries like China and India. The presence of large agricultural production and other food production in the region is also responsible for the expected growth of the illuminometer market in the region. The growing film and photography industry in the region has resulted in an increase in the demand for illuminometers in the region. China and India are major automobile manufacturers in the world and have to adhere to international standards of production. Automobile light intensity is heavily regulated by governments and automobile manufacturers have to adhere to these standards which are also expected to have a positive impact on the illuminometer market in the region.
Sekonic, Fluke Corporation, FLIR Systems (EXTECH), Omega Engineering, Konica Minolta Sensing Singapore Pte Ltd, GOSSEN Foto - und Lichtmess technik GmbH, Trusco Nakayama Corporation, Hioki Kyoritsu Electrical Instruments Works Ltd., among others, are the major vendors competing in the illuminometer market.
