Research Report on Global Infrared Detection Equipment Market

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Infrared Detection Equipment Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.

The Global Infrared Detection Equipment market to grow at a CAGR of 11.86% over the period 2014-2019

An infrared detector is a device used to detect infrared radiation reflected or emitted by an object. Infrared detectors are widely adopted across several applications such as security, home automation, temperature sensors, appliances, gas and fire detection, and others. Infrared detectors, such as cooled and uncooled detectors, are extensively used in the Residential, Commercial, Military, and Industrial sectors.

Uncooled infrared detectors are widely accepted across these sectors because of their low price, lightweight quality, and low-power consumption. Based on technology, the infrared detectors available in the market are thermopile, pyroelectric, microbolometers, InGaAs, and MCT.

One of the major trends in the market is the development of MCT LWIR and VLWIR detectors for space applications. These detectors have a wavelength cut-off of 15 µm. MCT LWIR and VLWIR detectors are used for earth observation and meteorological applications.

According to the report, the decline in price of infrared detection equipment is one of the factors driving the market. Intense competition in the market has led to the wide development of low-priced infrared detection equipment.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges that the market faces is the influence of environmental conditions on infrared detection equipment. Rain, fog, dust, sunlight, and wind affect the proper functioning of infrared detection equipment. Harsh sun glare can lead to undesirable and confusing signals being received by the infrared detection equipment, resulting in inaccurate measurement.
