Abstract: The market for fiberoptic sensors will grow from $20 million in 1983 to $278 million in 1993. This paper presents a model for projecting market growth based on historical market data for the fiberoptics communications industry. A comparison of patents issued for fiberoptic sensor and communications applications is used to derive the fiberoptic sensor market. The results closely parallel market forecasts obtained using other market research techniques.
