Infrared Detector Market – Global Forecast to 2020 – Increasing Awareness of IR detectors in Manufacturing & Industrial Applications – Research and Markets

By Business Wire News   


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Infrared Detector Market by Type, Technology, Wavelength, Application, and Geography – Global Forecast to 2020” report to their offering.

The infrared detector market was valued at $230.3 Million in 2014 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.83% between 2015 and 2020. The growth of the infrared detector market is propelled by factors such as increasing awareness of IR detectors in manufacturing and industrial applications, uncooled infrared technology, and wide acceptance of IR detectors in different applications.

The infrared detector market would be driven by the application in people and motion sensing. It is expected to hold the largest market size during the forecast period. Owing to the increasing demand for IR detectors at airports, museums, retail shops, and libraries for counting people and for motion detection, the people and motion sensing application holds a major share of the infrared detector market.

Asia Pacific held the largest share of the infrared detector market in 2014. The market in the region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2015 and 2020, mainly owing to the increased demand for infrared detectors from temperature measurement, military and defense, and industrial applications.

Factors such as the inability to perform in harsh environment and availability of substitutes for infrared gas detectors are the major barriers inhibiting the growth of this market. High humidity, dusty environment, and continuously changing temperature cause problems for infrared detectors, which may affect the sensitivity of the infrared detector product.
