Global Bolometer Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A bolometer is an instrument used to measure the power of electromagnetic radiation. The importance of bolometers is that they can be used to measure the properties of very small amounts of energy.

Semiconductor Bolometer:

Semiconductor bolometer is a device that measures the flow of heat, which is used in various applications such as temperature measurement, detection of fire or smoke and monitoring air or water temperature. It's an electronic sensor that consists of two semiconductor materials: one to generate infrared energy and other to detect it. The detection takes place by means of a thermopile (TP) bridge which generates current proportional to the amount of heat received.

Superconducting Bolometer:

Superconducting bolometer is an instrument used for measuring the magnetic field strength. It utilizes superconducting magnets which allow electrical current to flow without resistance. As there is no electrical current, there are also no magnetic fields present in this case, so it does not affect the measurement of magnetic field strength.

Application Insights:

The global bolometer market has been segmented into automotive industry, aerospace industry, defense industry and others. The defense application segment is expected to witness the highest CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to increasing adoption in military applications. The growing need for advanced night-vision goggles and thermal imaging systems is also a key factor driving the demand for these devices in military applications.

The automotive sector accounted for a significant share of the overall revenue in 2017 as various companies are focusing on developing low power Bolometers (LPB). These products have numerous advantages including small size; high efficiency; long life; low maintenance cost and easy integration with existing infotainment systems. Moreover, technological advancements such as miniaturization of superconducting magnets that provide efficient heat transfer will further boost product demand in this sector over the forecast period.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017 owing to the presence of major industry participants and technological advancements. The region is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period due to increasing investments in R&D activities. Moreover, growing demand for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and automatic emergency braking (AEB) systems is anticipated to drive product demand in this region.

Asia Pacific is projected to be one of the fastest-growing regions during the forecast period owing with rapid industrialization, improving economic conditions, rising disposable income levels,.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for infrared sensors in security and surveillance applications
  • Rising demand for bolometers in medical imaging and diagnostics
  • Growing adoption of bolometers in automotive safety systems
  • Proliferation of infrared cameras in consumer electronics market
  • Increasing research and development investments for advanced bolometer technologies
