Infrared Sensors Market Expects Automation to Drive Future IR Sensor Demand

Infrared Sensors Market Revenue, Spurred by Conusmer Electronics, Set to Cross the $455 Million Mark in 2018.

An IR sensor can be described as an electronic component that has the ability to kick start radiation and detect signals like light within the IR sensor range. A PIR sensor has been designed with the specific purpose of detecting a fast obstacle without getting in contact with it. Such a PIR motion sensor usually consists of components like the source of IR light, LED optical parts to manipulate the signal and the detector itself.

Another benefit is the measurement of heat by utilizing the infrared temperature sensor. Since an IR sensor has relatively long wavelengths, the IR sensor range is more extensive. An infrared detector also has the ability to distinguish between white and black surface material. Thus, the Infrared Sensors Market is well positioned to grow significantly during the forecast period of 2016-2022. 

Scope & Regional Forecast of the Infrared Sensors Market

The Infrared Sensors Market considers the prime growth drivers to be a few factors like: popular consumer electronics being packed with infrared heat sensor; rising disposable income; rise in wireless communication systems; and more emphasis on efficient power consumption technologies. The market for infra red detector technology is set to grow at 20% and the revenue is set to touch the $455 Million mark in 2018.

The Infrared Sensors Market is currently dominated by demand from the region of Americas followed by Europe. The major segments expected to drive future demand are home, automation and military industries. Due to recent R&D efforts, the proximity sensor circuit has also enjoyed other benefits like lower production cost, enhanced power consumption efficiency and flexibility of form factor.
