This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Infrared Sensors Market is accounted for $485.95 million in 2020 and is expected to reach $1,203.21 million by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 12.0% during the forecast period. Rising need for wireless communications, growing trend of video surveillance, surge in investment in the security market, and increasing investments in autonomous cars are the major factors propelling the market growth. However, high manufacturing cost is hampering the market growth.

Infrared sensors are components which can detect and produce light in the IR wavelength range. It is an electronic instrument which is used to sense certain characteristics of its surroundings by either emitting and/or detecting infrared radiation. These sensors are also capable of measuring the heat being emitted by an object and detecting motion. It can measure heat radiated by an object and detect motion, which produces light in IR wavelength range. IR sensors have IR light source, medium, optical components and the IR detector. The medium can be a vacuum in case of thermal imaging systems or can be atmosphere. With the advancements in technology, infrared sensors have become light in weight and have also become more affordable. Also, the power consumption in such sensors is too low.

Based on spectrum range, the long wave infrared (LWIR) segment is going to have a lucrative growth during the forecast period owing to the rising demand for long-wave IR from the defense and military vertical for security and surveillance application. Long-wave IR products are of lower cost as compared to short-wave IR and medium-wave IR and is witnessing its demand in other industries, such as food & beverage, healthcare, aerospace, and automotive. All these factors are likely to surge the growth of the long-wave IR segment in the global infrared detector market.

By geography, Asia Pacific is going to have a lucrative growth during the forecast period due to the established electronics industry and rising technological advancements in economies, such as Japan, China, and South Korea. Over the years, the region has been witnessing growing penetration of Internet of Things (IoT) and increasing consumer preference toward better energy management systems. Factors such as these are driving the demand for smart home automation technology, which, in turn, boosts the demand for IR sensors. Furthermore, various governments across the countries such as China, India, and South Korea are actively trying to strengthen the IoT platforms by entering into various public and private collaborations to leverage IoT advancements for automation and other industrial applications. Such collaborations are reinforcing the development of the market in the region. The presence of key market players in the region, rapid industrialization, increased application of infrared detectors in the residential and consumer electronics sector, primarily in manufacturing sectors, increase in demand for better security and monitoring systems, and rise in government initiatives in the aerospace and defence sector have fuelled the market growth.
