Photocell Market Research, 2031

The global photocell market size was valued at $2.3 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $3.6 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2022 to 2031.

Photocell is a light sensitive module that is used to detect and measure amount of incident light. In photocell device, photovoltaic or photoelectric effect is used to produce voltage or current when exposed to electromagnetic radiation. It consists of a wire anode containing evacuated sealed glass tube and concave cathode. It is known as photoelectric cell or electric eye. These are small and inexpensive sensors that permit to detect light.

Rise in building & construction activities and rapid growth of manufacturing industry in the developing economies across the globe increase the need for smarts homes, hospital, stadiums, hotels, and many others places using TV camera for telecasting scenes, burglar alarm, street lighting system automatically, and many others things that can be fulfilled with the help of photocell, which in turn are expected to drive the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Owing to the increasing use of enhanced technologies, the growing adoption of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) across various industrial facilities and rising safety mandates in developing countries such as India, Japan, and China are propelling the adoption of photocell in the region.

Impact of COVID-19 outbreak on the market

The outbreak of COVID-19 has negatively impacted various industries and countries across the globe. Decrease in growth rate of the industries such as building & construction, transportation, manufacturing, and energy sectors has been witnessed, owing to the lockdown imposed, globally. The COVID-19 outbreak has affected the demand as well as manufacturing for global. Moreover, the upstream and downstream channels have been affected due to restrictions on movement, which lead to an increase in the number of inventories. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted delivery times for electric vehicle projects, which is consequently hindering the demand for batteries. The delay in projects is owing to labor shortages.

Furthermore, building & construction activities across the globe were on hold during the pandemic period owing to strict measures of social distancing, lack of labor, and raw material supply disruptions. This further declined the growth of the market in 2020. Moreover, temporary shutdown of factories, manufacturing bases and other processing industries hampered the growth of the photocell market. Thus, all these factors collectively led to decreased growth of the global photocell market in 2020, and are expected to foster market growth by the end of the second quarter of 2022.
