Global Infrared Detectors Market

Booming demand from consumer electronics applications such as tablets, smart TVs and smartphone paired with the use of night vision ability in military applications are the two major factors driving the infrared detectors market. Furthermore, increasing demand for security at commercial environments such as offices, hotels, airports, and hospitals, increasing use of uncooled infrared technology in remote sensing and hyperspectral imaging favors the infrared detectors market growth. Moreover, growing awareness of IR detectors among manufacturing and industrial applications is expected to flourish the demand for infrared detectors in the near future. On the other hand, the high cost of chemical compounds such as indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) and mercury cadmium telluride (MCT) is expected to restrict infrared detector’s market growth. Nonetheless, increasing scope for consumer electronics application may disclose new avenues for infrared detectors market in the near future.

Thermopile infrared detectors dominated the infrared detectors market in 2017; owing to the preference for contactless temperature measurement in many applications. Pyroelectric and micro-bolometer infrared detector is expected to become the another most lucrative type segment in the forecast period. InGaAs and MCT are a costly type of infrared detectors and are majorly used in military applications.

Increasing use of uncooled infrared technology in remote sensing and hyperspectral imaging is expected to prompt the demand for uncooled IR detector technology segment in the coming years. Cooled IR detector is also expected to acquire a significant market share in the analysis period. Based on wavelength, LWIR (Long Wave Infrared Wavelength) segment is estimated to be the largest market segment over the analysis period owing to its extensive application range and low price. Microbolometer, Thermopylae, and pyroelectric infrared detector type are well-liked within LWIR spectral range.

Security and consumer electronics together acquired the largest market share for infrared detectors market in 2017. The growth of this segment is mainly attributed due to the demand for security at commercial environments such as offices, hotels, airports, and hospitals and high demand from consumer electronics applications such as tablets, smart TVs, and smartphone. The military segment is expected to experience significant growth owing to the increasing use of infrared detectors for night vision ability in military applications
