Infrared detectors are transducers of radiant energy that convert the radiation of objects in the infrared range to a measurable form. Recently, there is a huge adoption of IR detectors in the latest range of applications, such as security, consumer electronics, and smart homes among others, which has become a significant driving factor of this market. The use of IR detectors in temperature measurement and spectroscopy applications is expected to further increase in the future.
This market report gives a brief overview of the global market in the present scenario, and discusses the history and evolution of IR detectors. It also analyzes the pyroelectric IR detector market on the basis of technology, spectral range, application, and geography. Each classification done for the global market comprises an extensive segmentation, along with market estimates and forecasts for every sub-market. The report also presents a comprehensive overview of market share, value chain analysis, and market metrics including drivers, restraints, and upcoming opportunities.
The global IR detector market is expected to reach $26.5 million by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 12% from 2014 to 2020.
Pyroelectric infrared is a Passive infrared (PIR) technology that can sense a change in radiation emitted by living organisms and inanimate matter. The crystalline material used in Pyroelectric infrared products is made up of various substances. Some of them include gallium nitride, caesium nitrate, cobalt phthalocyanine, and polyvinyl fluorides. All of these substances are capable of generating a low frequency of electric current when infrared radiation around them increases. The most common use of this technology is in motion detection sensors. Many of these detectors and sensors are used in burglar alarms. Some of the manufacturers in this technology are Excelitas (U.S), Murata Manufacturing (Japan), Nicera (Japan), and Melexis (U.S.).
The report covers the ‘cooled’ and ‘uncooled’ IR detectors, which is further sub-divided into short wave infrared, mid wave infrared, and long wave infrared market.
The major driving factor for this market is the drastic reduction observed in the price range of detectors, thereby resulting in adoption of these detectors across significant applications. This research study identifies the burning issues and market winning imperatives that are currently affecting the market. Besides all this, critical market pointers such as Porter’s five force model of detector market, market dynamics, and manufacturers’ competitiveness mapping are also elaborated in this report.
In broader terms, the total IR detector market has been segmented according to the type of detectors and varied applications. The report includes data analysis for the IR detectors types such as MCT (Mercury Cadmium Telluride), InGaAs (Indium Gallium Arsenide), Pyroelectric, Thermopyles, and Microbolometers. The total market has also been divided into various applications, namely people and motion sensing, temperature measurement, fire and gas detection, spectroscopy, bio medical imaging, and smart homes among other segments. An in-depth analysis of each segment with market estimation in terms of value is also included in this report.
The countries contributing towards IR detector market in Europe are Germany, France, U.K., and Italy. ULIS (France) and Vigo Systems (Poland) are major companies that dominate the European market. Few developments in InGaAs technology in this region have helped to find out newer applications in the consumer electronics market. Recent global recession has also added to the slowdown of the overall European market.
The IR detector market from Pyroelectric technology is estimated at $100 million in 2014, which is anticipated to reach $254 million by 2020, at a CAGR of 14%. The major applications driving this market are people and motion sensing, temperature measurement, and fire and gas detection. These applications, due to their lower pricing value are considered to be high volume driven markets. People and motion sensing is expected to have the highest growth rate because of its applications in consumer electronics and security.
The Asia-Pacific region leads in terms of market share of IR detector market from Pyroelectric, contributing to a cumulative value of 40% of the overall market size in 2013, due to presence of key manufacturers such as Murata (Japan), Hamamatsu (Japan), and ULIS (France). APAC is expected to have the highest growth rate due to expected growth observed in varied IR detector applications.
