The distributed fiber optic sensor market report has been expanded to cover single point sensors and extended to 2022. The distributed fiber optic sensor market stood at $651 million in 2014 with 49% associated the oil and gas market segment. The overall market contacted through 2016 due to the fall in oil prices. A modest recovery is projected in 2018. By 2022, the forecast shows the oil and gas market segment will increase in value, but due to growth in other segments, it will decrease to 19% of the distributed fiber optic sensor market.

Most physical properties can be sensed optically with fibers. Light intensity, displacement (position), temperature, pressure, rotation, sound, strain, magnetic field, electric field, radiation, flow, liquid level, chemical analysis, and vibration are just some of the phenomena that can be sensed. Fiber optic sensors have been used successfully for many years in military gyroscopes and hydrophones. However, their use in smart oil wells has been the key to enabling North America to be on a path to energy independence.
