Another segment which has a high potential in the IR detector market is ‘spectroscopy’. The APAC region, followed by the Americas, will be the key regions driving the market in the coming years. The U.S. and Japan are the two countries, which are key growth markets for temperature measurement, and people and motion sensing applications.

People and motion sensing was the largest contributor to the IR detector market in 2013. High focus on security at commercial spaces like hotels, airports, hospitals, and offices is expected to drive the market of presence detection products. IR detectors used in these applications are mainly ‘Thermopyles’ and ’Pyroelectric’ technologies, which are very low priced. Motion sensing in consumer electronics applications like tablets and smart TVs, and smartphones is also expected to drive the market. MCT and InGaAs technologies are currently popular in military applications, with new product developments in the coming years, these technologies will find greater application in bio medical imaging and spectroscopy.

The temperature measurement segment holds the key for an exponential growth of the IR detector market;ear, forehead thermometry, and the digital thermopiles for non-contact temperature measurement are some of the key applications which are expected to drive the market. Newer applications like temperature measurement inside smartphones, hard discs, and printers will also be fueling the growth of this market.The prominent company which is involved in Thermopyles technology is Excelitas (U.S.).

Excelitas is a volume leader in the ‘Thermopyles’ technology. It has gained a worldwide recognition for the design and production of high-performance ‘Pyroelectric’ detectors, thermopile detectors, and sensor modules; and continues to drive the digital Thermopyles market for non-contact temperature measurement applications. Excelitas IR detectors are used for safeguarding homes, conserving energy, motion and, presence detection, gas detection, and indoor climate control applications. The company suppliesdetectors,also used forapplications such as ear and forehead thermometry. Excelitas comprised a work-force of approximately 3,000 employees in 2013 in North America, Europe, and Asia; serving customers across the world.

Nicera (Japan) is another key player in the IR detector market, which mainly supplies ‘Pyroelectric’ technology detectors. Its core products are ceramics and semiconductor materials, which are used to make— infrared sensors, to protect property and life; ultrasonic sensors for car safety and theft prevention;and gas sensors, to help maintain a clean environment. Some of the other applications for which it supplies the IR detectors are essential electronic components for computer and mobile communications.
