People and Motion Sensing, and Temperature Measurement are the two Largest Application Segments for the IR Detector Market
Another segment which has a high potential in the IR detector market is ‘spectroscopy’. The APAC region, followed by the Americas, will be the key regions driving the market in the coming years. The U.S. and Japan are the two countries, which are key growth markets for temperature measurement, and people and motion sensing applications.
People and motion sensing was the largest contributor to the IR detector market in 2013. High focus on security at commercial spaces like hotels, airports, hospitals, and offices is expected to drive the market of presence detection products. IR detectors used in these applications are mainly ‘Thermopyles’ and ’Pyroelectric’ technologies, which are very low priced. Motion sensing in consumer electronics applications like tablets and smart TVs, and smartphones is also expected to drive the market. MCT and InGaAs technologies are currently popular in military applications, with new product developments in the coming years, these technologies will find greater application in bio medical imaging and spectroscopy.
The temperature measurement segment holds the key for an exponential growth of the IR detector market;ear, forehead thermometry, and the digital thermopiles for non-contact temperature measurement are some of the key applications which are expected to drive the market. Newer applications like temperature measurement inside smartphones, hard discs, and printers will also be fueling the growth of this market.The prominent company which is involved in Thermopyles technology is Excelitas (U.S.).
