By Business Wire News   


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “North America IR Detector Market by Technology (MCT, InGaAs, Pyroelectric, Thermopiles, and Microbolometers), by Spectral Range (SWIR, MWIR, and LWIR), by Application, and by Geography – Analysis and Forecast to 2019” report to their offering.

The North American infrared (IR) detector market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 10.9% through the forecast period from 2014 to 2019

The growth of the North America IR detector market is driven by factors such as rising security concerns and growth in the demand for contact-less temperature measurement’ and motion sensing’ in the consumer electronics application. In the overall IR detector market, the people and motion sensing application is estimated to lead the market in terms of demand and be the highest revenue generator.

In this report, the North American IR Detector market has been broadly classified into technologies, applications, and geographical regions. The different IR detector technologies detailed include mercury cadmium telluride (MCT), InGaAs, pyroelectric, thermopiles, and microbolometers. In the applications segment, the market for IR detectors in smart homes is projected to increase at a CAGR of 11.5% due to the rising security concerns.

IR detectors enable systems to interact with the outer world without touching it by measuring the radiation from objects around them. This report gives a detailed analysis of these detection technologies, along with the existing and emerging applications markets. The major application segments for IR detectors in North America are people and motion sensing, temperature sensor, fire and gas detection, spectroscopy, biomedical imaging, and smart homes.
