A microbolometer is a type of bolometer that can be used as a detector in a thermal camera, among other applications. Infrared radiation with wavelengths between 7.5-14 μm strikes the detector material, heating it, and thus changing its electrical resistance. This resistance change is measured and processed into temperatures, which can be used to create an image. Unlike other types of infrared detecting equipment, microbolometers do not require cooling.

 

Optical microscopy has been refined continuously since its introduction, leading to the advent of the highly efficient scientific instruments in use presently. Optical microscopes have played a vital role in biomedical research in recent times. Their ability to provide multidimensional structural and functional information about a specimen in a non-invasive manner has permitted numerous scientific advances.

 

The purpose of this study is to analyze the global microbolometer market. This report includes revenue forecasts, market trends, and opportunities for the period from 2014 to 2019 and the overview of the competitive landscape in the market. The analysis has been conducted on the various market segments derived, on the basis of material, format type, application, and geography. On the basis of material, the market has been segmented into Vanadium Oxide (VOx), and Amorphous Silicon (a-Si), among others. On the basis of format type, the market has been segmented into large, medium, and small. The main applications of microbolometers include thermography, commercial vision enhancement, and military. The geographical analysis includes North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World (RoW). The report also includes the key market drivers and inhibitors, along with their impact, in detail.

 

Apart from a general overview of the major companies in this market, this report also provides financial analysis, products, services, and the key developments of the major players in the industry. BAE Systems (U.K.), FLIR Systems (U.S.), ULIS (France), DRS Technologies (U.S.), and Raytheon (U.S.) are some of the leading players covered in the global microbolometer market report.

 

The global microbolometer is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 19.4% during the forecast period of 2014 to 2019, as the low cost factor of microbolometers is expected to drive the application segments. The demand from the military and thermography segments are also expected to boost the sales of microbolometers in the coming years.
