Global Infrared Detector Market to Reach US$ 1,003.9 Million by 2032, Catalyzed by Increasing Applications in Security and Surveillance

February 24, 2022 | Electronics and Semiconductors

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Infrared Detector Market Report by Type (Thermal Detector, Photo Detector), Spectral Range (Short-wave Infrared, Medium-wave Infrared, Long-wave Infrared), Technology (Mercury Cadmium Telluride, Indium Gallium Arsenide (InGaAs), Pyroelectric, Thermopile, Microbolometer, and Others), Application (Aerospace and Defense, Automotive, Consumer Electronics, Industrial, Medical, Security), and Region 2024-2032," finds that the global infrared detector market reached a value of US$ 523.4 Million in 2023. Infrared (IR) detectors refer to electronic devices that emit and detect infrared radiation to sense specific characteristics of their surrounding environment. They can also detect motion and measure heat emitted by objects. Compared to their traditional counterparts, IR detectors are compact and detect infrared light from longer distances. As a result, they are widely used in flame detectors, gas analyzers, gas warning devices, medical gas measurement technology, and consumer electronics. These detectors also find extensive applications in smart homes, night vision, spectroscopy, astronomy, biomedical imaging, and people- and motion-sensing solutions. 

Global Infrared Detector Market Trends:

The increasing applications of IR detectors in security and surveillance represent the primary factor driving the market growth. For instance, IR detectors are widely utilized in security cameras, burglar alarms, safety lighting, and garage doors for installation in retail shops, airports, residential properties, and commercial complexes. Besides this, they are also employed in the military and defense sector for surveillance, and target detection and tracking due to their compact size and ability to detect light from longer distances. Additionally, with the rising safety and security concerns, the demand for people- and motion-sensing devices, such as IR detectors, has escalated across the globe. Along with this, there has been widespread product adoption in industrial plants to ensure the efficient functioning of motors, boilers, bearings, and electrical peripherals. Furthermore, the leading manufacturers are developing innovative IR detectors for phone cameras, augmented reality (AR) glasses, and driverless vehicles to allow visibility in fog and smoke, which is further propelling the market growth. Other factors, including the growing adoption of smart homes, surging sales of consumer electronics, rising automation of buildings, technological advancements, and ongoing research and development (R&D) activities, are also creating a favorable market outlook. Looking forward, the market value is expected to reach US$ 1,003.9 Million by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 7.3% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
