Consumer Electronics Industry to be the robust market driver in the global market

In the coming years, increased demand is projected to boost the revenues of IR sensors on consumer electronic applications, such as smart TV, smartphones and tablets. In addition, increased wearable technology popularity in the consumer electronics industry is expected to fuel the demand for infrared sensors. However, due to its prominent use in offshore applications, the global infrared sensor sector is projected to have the highest market share in 2018.

The main share of growth for the year 2018 in this segment is expected to remain with the uncooled type of infrared sensors, driven by factors such as smaller dimensions, high reliability as well as low cost. Infrared sensors will increase the growth of uncooled infrared sensors in the consumer electronics sector in Asia Pacific due to its prominent use. In addition, there is a significant increase in segment growth over the forecast period with respect to the adoption of uncooled infrared sensor applications in commercial and industrial applications.

Automotive segment to occupy a considerable market share in the global market

In the near future, the increasing acceptance and investment in research and development of integration of infrared cameras into automobiles, combined with the increasing use of autonomous cars and vehicle connectivity, is expected to become necessary and support the market over the prevision period. This further helped the appropriate assimilation and understanding of visual, audio, geographical and other data and led to the speedy adoption of infrared sensors, particularly under challenging environmental conditions, to provide accurate and reliable distance sensing and measurement.

Asia-Pacific to be the fastest growing region in the global market

Due to the established electronics industry and increasing technological advancements in economies such as China, Japan and South Korea, Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing market for infrared sensors. The region is also the biggest consumer and producer of consumer electronics. The increasing preference of consumers for better energy management, and the increasing penetration of the Internet of Things (IoT), are driving the demand for the intelligent domestic automation technologies. Many companies also invest in infrared sensors for packaging enhancement in this region. In order to measure and control the thickness of films and sheets for product quality, Yokogawa Electric Corps has developed theWG51S2 infrared sensor, for example. In addition, the governments of these developing countries are working actively on strengthening IoT platforms, such as China, India or South Korea, to leverage advances in IoT for automation and other industrial uses, thereby reinforcing development of this specific market in the Asia-Pacific region.

In five regions–North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa and South America–the global infrared sensors market can be classified geographically. Infrared sensors are utilized in a wide range of applications, including night flying, night monitoring, night travel, wildlife survey, rescue and sleep laboratory surveillance. Furthermore, infrared sensors are used in vision guns and in home alarm systems motion sensors. These sensors are used to detect motion increasingly at commercial sites such as airports, retail stores, libraries and museums, people count, apart from security alarms and night vision cameras.

The key global players of IOT devices market are Honeywell International Inc, Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd, Excelitas Technologies, Teledyne Technologies, Hamamatsu Photonics K.K., Raytheon Company, Flir Systems, Inc., InfraTec GmbH and Omron Corporation among others.

Infrared sensors are defined as instruments capable of detecting motion through infrared radiation. Several temperature-dependent incidents monitor the thermal impact of this radiation. The sensors are electronic instruments used to detect or emit radiation to detect certain features of your environment. These detectors can also feel and measure objects ‘ heat. Due to the extensive development of the global electronics and manufacturing sectors, global demand for infrared sensors is forecast to increase tremendously during the projected period. In addition, the development of these sensors ‘ end uses in wearables and electronic goods demand in the Asia-Pacific region, particularly in China as well as Japan, will boost the market overall significantly in the coming years. The detectors play a major role in medical, automotive, industrial; safety and consumer electronic end uses. The rapidly increasing industrial sector, public investment and defense economic incentives have further strengthened the growth of the global infrared detector market. Compared to other detectors, these are extremely effective for safety and monitoring because of their compact size and ability to detect infrared light remotely. However, under certain conditions, high installation costs and limited accuracy could limit market growth.

Factors such as increased levels of security and increased demand for consumer electronics products drive the global infrared sensor market. Refrigerated infrared sensors depend on a mechanism of cryogenic cooling compared to uncooled sensors. As a result, these detectors are significantly small, cost-effective and less complex. It is estimated that retail prices will further boost the market. The night viewing skills are also analyzed in order to strengthen the infrared sensors market. Developments in vertical automation, including semiconductors and electronics, aerospace and defense and healthcare, have increased the worldwide demand for infrared sensors. This growth is further boosted by the increased importance of intelligent health care equipment. Moreover, the increasing use of the sensor and thermistor resistance temperatures has also led to the growth of the pharmaceutical industry and the growth of these industries. The main opportunities for a global infrared sensor market that is expected to be stable and grow at a decent range include the end use of night-visions, astronomy, infrared tracking, art restoration and reflector imaging, hyper spectral imaging, climatology and meteorology, gas detectors, anesthesiology testing, rail safety, thermosets, flama monitors and moisture testing. Furthermore, growing domestic automation demand is a key factor in the development of the global infrared sensors.

The global infrared sensors market can be segmented on the basis of detection, end use and geography. Based on detection, the global infrared sensors market is segmented into active and passive. Based on end use, the global infrared sensors market is bifurcated into aerospace & defense, consumer electronics, automotive, oil and gas, pharmaceuticals and mining among others. On the basis of geography, the global infrared sensors market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Middle East & Africa and Asia-Pacific.

Some of the key players operating in the global market include Honeywell International Inc, Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd, Raytheon Company, Teledyne Technologies, Omron Corporation, Texas Instruments Incorporated and Hamamatsu Photonics K.K among others.
