Color detection sensors are used for detecting the color of the surface and then cast light such as green, red, and blue LEDs on the objects to be tested, and to calculate the chromaticity coordinates from the reflected radiation and compare with previously stored reference colors. A color recognition channel allows the user to associate the specific characteristics of the target with the values stored in the sensor’s internal memory. These sensors are useful in the monitoring of color consistency in areas such as packaging & printing, plastics, textile production, and other continuous output processes.

Color sensors to be a key product line in the coming years

Among all the applications, color detection sensors emerged dominant in 2017 and are expected to retain their lead by the end of the forecast period. The increasing adoption in several devices has made color detection sensors one of the most favorite applications in the market. The development of smart devices has created immense opportunity for the color detection sensor market. Nowadays, RGB or red, green, blue ambient light sensor is used in smartphones in place of the simple white ambient light sensor to determine the level of brightness needed by the display. Likewise, the ambient RGB detection sensor is used with the built-in camera of handsets and tablets in order to ensure accurate skin tones and color consistency in photographs that the user takes. Companies are also working on presenting innovative products to their customers using color sensors.

For instance, in July 2017, ams AG introduced TCS3430, an XYZ tristimulus true color sensor IC to be obtainable with a small footprint suitable for consumer devices such as smartphones, notebooks, and tablets. This new sensor enables consumer products to advance and manage their color and brightness performance.

Contrast and luminescence sensors to witness a close fight

Trailing color sensors closely, both contrast and luminescence sensors are likely to present market players with lucrative future prospects. Contrast sensors are principally utilized as a part of packaging/printing machines for the identification of printed or control marks. For instance, Tired's line of KT type of contrast sensors recognizes even the smallest differences at the most noteworthy rates, for example, print blemishes on foils or bundling. These sensors recognize minute grayscale varieties between the check and the foundation on matte, glossy or straightforward surfaces. The growth of the packaging market across the globe is further expected to trigger the adoption of contrast sensors in a variety of applications.

Luminescence sensors identify unmistakable and non-noticeable imprints that light up when utilizing bright light. Fluorescent material and imprints can be easily identified on hues or different surfaces, thereby increasing adoption in the automotive sector. Luminescence sensors are one of the important types of sensors and held about one-fifth of the global color detection sensor market value in 2017. Luminescence sensors are anticipated to witness increased demand and adoption in the coming years, owing to their effective responsiveness to materials such as greases, adhesives, paints, and inks that need accurate verification in certain applications.
