The global IR imaging market is expected to grow from USD 5.37 Billion in 2014 to USD 8.45 Billion by 2020 at a CAGR of 6.50% between 2014 and 2020. The IR imaging market is expected to grow substantially due to factors such as the growing market for uncooled technology and decreasing cost of IR detectors.

IR lens system, sensor, and IR detector among others, comprise the major components used in IR imaging. IR detectors accounted for the largest market share in 2013. IR detectors form an important component since the capturing ability of an IR imager majorly depends on the detection potential of an IR detector. Different types of IR detectors are used for cooled and uncooled technologies. Cooled and uncooled IR detectors are widely used in a large number of applications such as residential, commercial, industrial, and military verticals among others. As a result of advanced technologies used in IR detectors, a wide variety of IR cameras based on such detectors is extensively used for security, home automation, and gas and fire detection purposes. This would result in the growth rate of IR detectors market during the forecast period.

The uncooled technology of IR imaging is expected to be the fastest-growing market by 2020. This technology has the potential to give crystal clear pictures through darkness, fog, haze, and smoke, which has increased its installation rate in applications such as surveillance (which includes military, homeland security, and industrial), aerospace & defense and firefighting, for better resolution. An uncooled technology-based IR camera is costs lesser compared to the cooled technology-based IR camera. Uncooled infrared image sensors are smaller and built with fewer moving parts. Consumer electronics is the fastest-growing application vertical for the uncooled IR technology.

The Americas is expected to be the fastest-growing market. Considering the rapid developments in infrared technologies in North American countries including the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, the IR imaging market in this region, is expected to grow significantly. The global IR imaging market is driven by different applications such as surveillance which includes (military, homeland security, and industrial) along with aerospace & defense, and firefighting.

Infrared Imaging Market

However the IR imaging industry faces some challenges as the cost of cooled technology is exceptionally high. The cost of IR components and devices based on the cooled technology is ten times higher than the uncooled technology, because of which most of the manufacturers and end users do not prefer using the cooled technology. This acts as one of the restraints in the IR imaging market growth. This report describes drivers, restraints, opportunities, and challenges pertaining to the IR imaging market. Furthermore, it analyzes the current scenario and forecasts the market till 2020, including the market segmentation based on component, technology, wavelength, application, and geography.

Some of the major companies in the IR imaging market include FLIR Systems, Inc. (U.S.), DRS Technologies Inc. (U.S.), Fluke Corporation (U.S.), Axis Communications AB (Sweden), and Sofradir Group (France).
