Research and Markets: Concise Analysis of the International Infrared Detectors Technology & Market Trends

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Concise Analysis of the International Infrared Detectors Technology & Market Trends" report to their offering.

In addition to mature applications, the IR detector market is expected to be driven by emerging applications like smart building automation or mobile devices temperature sensing

Next growth opportunities spotted outside traditional markets: smart building automation and mobile phone business

Total infrared detector market generated revenue of more than $153M in 2012, mostly due to the mature motion detection market which relies on high-volume sales of automatic lighting and intrusion detection systems.

However in a scenario that includes spot thermometer function in mobile devices, it is expected that these revenues will top at $381M in 2018, growing at a 16% CAGR, fueled by:

Small detector applications, especially in consumer mobile applications. That growth in mobile applications is expected to be driven, in the short term, by adoption of monopixel sensors for internal temperature measurement and spot thermometry in smartphones and tablets. Technological innovation will be the key to compete successfully with other technologies in that market. Wafer-level-packaging will be necessary to successfully address these markets driven by price and looking for ever smaller form factor sensors. A specific scenario for adoption of IR sensors in mobile devices raises the market revenues in 2018 by $30M.
