The global Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) market is expected to grow from USD 66.5 Million in 2015 to USD 118.9 Million by 2022, at a CAGR of 8.6% from 2016 to 2022. The major drivers for the global Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) market are technological development of shortwave IR detector in terms of size, weight, and power at low cost as well as the night sighting capabilities for military application. Night sighting technology is used to detect objects in low light or total darkness using thermal radiations. These devices help to form intensified images which are not visible to naked eyes because of the insufficient light reaching to the eyes from the objects. Thus, night vision technologies with numerous applications are acting as a strong driver for Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) market.

Some of the major advantages of shortwave infrared are high sensitivity to temperature change, suitability for various applications, low cost, compact size, and low power consumption. SWIR is similar to visible light, where photons are reflected or absorbed by an object, providing the strong contrast needed for high-resolution imaging. SWIR spectrum ranges are used in many applications such as bottling plant inspection, food inspection, gas leak detection, surveillance, military & defense, and scientific research & life sciences.

The Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) market can be segmented by material into indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs), mercury cadmium telluride (HgCdTe), indium antimonide (InSb), and lead sulfide (PbS). Indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR till 2022. The major reason for the growth of InGaAs (detectors) is their efficient operability at room temperature. Limited or no requirement of cooling makes InGaAs detectors portable, cost-effective, and more preferable among others.

The industry verticals considered in the Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) market include semiconductor, manufacturing & process, agriculture, scientific research & life sciences, automotive, commercial, and military & defense industries. The market size of commercial industry segment is expected grow at the highest CAGR for the forecast period. The main reasons for the rapid growth of commercial sector include increased awareness as well as the rising need for gas detection and vision enhancement systems in public and sensitive places; and reduction in the cost of commercial grade SWIR detectors.

Geographically, the market is segmented into five regions: North America, Latin America, Europe, APAC, and RoW. APAC is expected to dominate the Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) market in 2015, whereas, the market in North America is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The major factors driving the APAC Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) market are high infrastructure development and high industrial growth in developing countries such as China and Taiwan.

Shortwave IR Market

SWIR detector technology is facing competition from other technologies such as CMOS and CCD-based smart cameras in some applications, which acts as a restraint for the market growth.

Sensors Unlimited, Inc. (U.S.), considering the growing demand for InGaAs technology, is focusing on pushing the technology to the next level with the help of its technical expertise. The company holds over 15 patents in InGaAs technology which shows its effort towards enhancing the technology. Sensors Unlimited is launching new sensors for the consumer sensor market to boost its consumer electronics sensors’ market share. The company recently launched the Unlimited Warrior C2S module, which provides operators with SWIR imaging capabilities on the battlefield for day or night-time use.

Teledyne DALSA Inc. (Canada) is focusing on both organic as well as inorganic strategies, such as customized products, acquisitions, and joint ventures. For instance, in July, 2013, Teledyne acquired Nova Sensors (California). With this acquisition, the company can now offer a significantly expanded range of digital imaging components and complete camera systems spanning the X-ray, UV, visible, and infrared spectra. The company also provides custom SWIR cameras, which are developed according to customer specifications.
