Consumer Electronics Industry Anticipated to be a Significantly Lucrative Market during the Forecast Period
Growing demand for consumer electronics applications including smart televisions, smart phones, and tablets is projected to propel the revenue of the IR sensors market in the coming years. Furthermore, the rising popularity of wearable technology is expected to fuel the demand for infrared sensors in the consumer electronics segment. However, the oil and gas industry in the global infrared sensors market is projected to hold the highest market share for the year 2018 due to its prominent use in offshore applications.
Uncooled Infrared Sensors Expected to Hold a Prominent Share during the Forecast Period
The uncooled infrared sensors type is anticipated to hold the dominant share for the year 2018 Growth in this segment is driven by factors such as relatively smaller size, high reliability, and low cost price. Prominent adoption of infrared sensors in the consumer electronics industry in Asia Pacific is likely to boost the growth of uncooled infrared sensors due to its prominent use. Furthermore, significant adoption of uncooled infrared sensors in commercial and industrial applications is likely to impact the growth of the segment during the forecast period.
North America Holding a Prominent Market Share
By geography, the global infrared sensors market can be classified into five regions namely North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. Infrared sensors are used in a wide range of applications including night flying, night surveillance, night driving, wildlife search and observation, rescue missions, and sleep laboratory monitoring. Moreover, infrared sensors are used in thermal night vision goggles and motion sensors are used in home alarm systems. The increasing use of these sensors in commercial places including airports, retail shops, libraries, and museums to detect motion, count people, apart from use in security alarms, and night vision cameras have impacted the global market.
The key players operating in the global infrared sensors market are Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd, Honeywell International Inc, Teledyne Technologies, Excelitas Technologies,Raytheon Company, Hamamatsu Photonics K.K., InfraTec GmbH, Flir Systems, inc., Omron Corporation, and Texas Instruments Incorporated among others.
