The infrared detector market was valued at USD 230.3 Million in 2014 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.83% between 2015 and 2020. The growth of the infrared detector market is propelled by factors such as increasing awareness of IR detectors in manufacturing and industrial applications, uncooled infrared technology, and wide acceptance of IR detectors in different applications.

The infrared detector market would be driven by the application in people and motion sensing. It is expected to hold the largest market size during the forecast period. Owing to the increasing demand for IR detectors at airports, museums, retail shops, and libraries for counting people and for motion detection, the people and motion sensing application holds a major share of the infrared detector market.

Pyroelectric detectors held the largest market share of the overall IR detector market in 2014. Pyroelectric IR detector is widely used in motion sensing and people detection, industrial climate control, smart home, and temperature change detection applications.

The market for uncooled infrared detector technology is expected to be valued the highest during the forecast period. The market would be driven by the application in people and motion sensing.

The long-wave infrared market is expected to be the largest market during the forecast period. The advantage provided by long-wave infrared detectors of better performance in harsh weather conditions is driving the market in military, surveillance, security, industrial, and automotive applications.

IR Detector Market

Asia Pacific held the largest share of the infrared detector market in 2014. The market in the region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2015 and 2020, mainly owing to the increased demand for infrared detectors from temperature measurement, military and defense, and industrial applications.

Factors such as the inability to perform in harsh environment and availability of substitutes for infrared gas detectors are the major barriers inhibiting the growth of this market. High humidity, dusty environment, and continuously changing temperature cause problems for infrared detectors, which may affect the sensitivity of the infrared detector product. Excelitas Technologies Corp., (U.S.) and Nippon Ceramic Co., Ltd (Japan) are the dominant players in the market. The have adopted the strategy of new product launches as the prime development strategy in the infrared detector market.
