Additionally, the growing demand for these filters in other applications such as medical imaging and night vision is also contributing to the growth of this market. The global IR-Cut filter market by type is segmented into near infrared (NIR) filters, mid-infrared (MIR) filters, and far infrared (FIR) filters. The NIR filter segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global IR-Cut filter market by type during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. This can be attributed to its growing use in cell phones and other consumer electronics products.

Global IR-Cut filter Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

An IR-Cut filter is a type of optical filter that blocks infrared radiation. It is used in cameras and other imaging devices to improve image quality by removing unwanted infrared light.

Near infrared Filter:

Near-infrared (NIR) filter is a type of optical filter that passes only those wavelengths of light which are in the NIR region of the electromagnetic spectrum. The NIR region extends from 7 to 400 nm and includes visible light, near UV, and near infrared radiation. A normal IR filter can be used with all types of cameras including digital cameras, webcams, Point & shoot cameras as well as film cameras.

Mid-infrared Filter:

A mid-infrared filter is a transparent material that absorbs or reflects part of the mid-infrared spectrum. The selection of such filters depends on their application in infrared cutters used for cutting unwanted IR wavelengths from laser light. Infrared filters are mainly used to reduce the intensity of specific IR bands, which can be useful in several applications including thermal cameras and night vision systems.

Application Insights:

Cell phones application segment accounted for the largest share in 2016 and is anticipated to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. The demand for cell phones is growing rapidly across the world. Cell phones are considered as a essential product these days, especially among the youth population of countries like India or China. Countries like Brazil, Mexico and Vietnam have a huge population of young people who use cell phone extensively which is expected to boost IR-Cut filter market growth in Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa during next seven years.

The computer application segment held a significant share in 2016 owing to increased usage of laptops and computers by individuals working remotely from their homes or offices abroad. Rising number of expatriates sending unsolicited commercial email (UCE) through their computers has compelled several manufacturers to develop products specifically designed for UCE filtering globally ir-cut filter market by 2030 ¢â‚¬Ëœ Other applications include car camera, security system, remote monitoring etc.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in terms of revenue share in 2017. The growth can be attributed to the presence of major players such as Honeywell International, Inc.; ITG Advanced Imaging; and Carl Zeiss Meditec Group. These companies are engaged in strategic initiatives such as new product development, capacity expansion, and mergers & acquisitions to gain a competitive edge. For instance, In January 2018, ITG advanced imaging expanded its mid-infrared filter production capabilities with an investment worth USD X million at its Livonia plant.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing demand for high-performance cameras from various application segments including security industry for recording images through night vision devices or thermal imaging applications among others.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for IR-Cut filters in consumer electronics products such as smartphones, tablets, and digital cameras.
  • Growing demand for IR-Cut filters in security and surveillance applications.
  • Rising demand for IR-Cut filters in medical imaging applications.
  • Increasing use of IR-Cut filters in optical communication systems.
  • Proliferation of LED lighting technology
