Selected Value Chain Analysis done in the full report


  • The quality of optical sensors manufactured, depends on both the production process as well the raw materials. Once the design, product features, specifications and patent filing are finished, either through its own R&D activities or licensing agreements with research institutes or universities, the company starts the manufacturing process.
  • This industry requires a range of components that are usually procured through various suppliers and raw material providers. The company manufactures the optical sensors either at their own factory or outsources the production process to a third-party manufacturer. Sometimes, these contract manufacturers only supply the manufactured parts, which can then be assembled at the company’s production facilities.
  • The optical sensor products are then distributed to system integrators through wholesalers or global distributors. Once the products reach the system integrators, they bring together all component subsystems into a single optical system. These final end products are then distributed to end-user through global or regional distributors.
