Market Overview:

The global infrared detector market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for cooled type infrared detectors in civil and military applications. The cooled type infrared detectors are more sensitive than the uncooled type and offer better performance at low temperatures, which is driving their demand in civil and military applications. Additionally, the growing adoption of thermal imaging cameras for security and surveillance purposes is also contributing to the growth of the global infrared detector market.

Global Infrared Detector Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

An infrared detector is a device that senses radiation from an object that emits or reflects infrared radiation. The most common use for an infrared detector is in a thermal camera, which images the heat emitted from objects.

Cooled Type:

The global infrared detector market is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% from 2016 to 2024. The growth can be attributed to the growing adoption of consumer electronics such as smartphones and tablets, which incorporate these detectors for applications such as security and surveillance.

Cooled type IR detectors are also used in medical devices for applications such as remote patient monitoring.

Uncooled Type:

Uncooled type is a detector technology that does not require any cooling mechanism to operate. These detectors are usually preferred for applications where low power and high sensitivity are required such as security, surveillance, medical diagnosis, etc. Uncooled detectors have several advantages over their counterparts; these include small size & weight which enables portability along with cost-effectiveness and low maintenance requirements.

Application Insights:

The military application segment dominated the global infrared detector market in terms of revenue share in 2017. The growth can be attributed to increasing spending on defense and Research & Development (R&D) activities by major players for developing advanced products for military applications. For instance, as per a press release issued by FLIR Systems, Inc., Lockheed Martin Corporation has been contracted to supply Advanced Targeting Pod System II for F-16 Fighting Falcons with improved targeting capabilities. This system is expected to provide pilots with critical information about the environment around the aircraft¢â‚¬â„¢s engine while flying at high speed during night time or bad weather conditions. Such initiatives are likely to boost product demand over the forecast period.

Civil applications include use of infrared detectors in security systems, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), industrial process monitoring and control systems among others which have different requirements regarding accuracy, resolution frequency and type of signal they need detect etc.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017 owing to the presence of major companies such as Honeywell International Inc. and InfraScan, Inc. Moreover, increasing demand for security systems in various applications is also expected to drive the regional market over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period due to rising investments by prominent players in this region for manufacturing high-quality products at low prices with superior features. The growing number of nuclear power plants across countries such as India and China are further expected to boost product demand from safety application segment within Asia Pacific during the forecast period.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for infrared detectors in security and surveillance applications
  • Growing adoption of infrared detectors in automotive safety systems
  • Rising demand for infrared detectors in medical imaging applications
  • Proliferation of night vision devices using infrared detectors
  • Increasing use of infrared detectors in research and development activities
