Global Infrared Detector Market is valued approximately at USD 439.07 million in 2018 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 6.5 % over the forecast period 2019-2026. The detector which reacts to infrared (IR) radiation are known as Infrared Detector. These detectors are used to detect infrared radiations to measure heat and detect motion. The detectors are integrated with various devices used for surveillance, testing, detection & measurement and automobiles. Apart from its application in motion detection the detectors are also used for data communication, for monitoring and control applications. This feature is majorly used in the consumer electronics sector where the detectors are integrated into TVs, Smartphones and other devices which converts the Infrared radiation into measurable form. Hence, the growing adoption of consumer electronics across the globe drives the market. As per Statista, the user penetration of consumer electronics in 2020 is 26.9% which is expected to increase to 38.5% by 2024. Further, the high demand for infrared detectors especially for people and motion sensing, security and surveillance applications and temperature measurement are key factors driving the infrared detectors market. However, the high cost and limited accuracy of the detectors hinders the market growth. As these detectors require additional semiconductor components for increased sensitivity and the cooling techniques associated with the use also add on to the overall costs. Although, the increasing penetration of infrared technology for gas analysis and fire detection, and the high popularity of uncooled infrared detectors presents a lucrative opportunity for market growth.
