The report, now available on ASDReports, recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Infrared Sensors Market: Excelitas, Murata, FLIR and Hamamatsu
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: DRS Technologies, General dynamics, L-3 communications, Nippon Avionics, OMRON, Raytheon, Sofradir, TestoAG, Texas Instruments, Vigo systems S.A.
Commenting on the report, an analyst said: “The integration of IR cores in smartphones is increasing the prospects of the IR sensors market. The decline in IR sensor prices and demand for highly functional smartphones will have a positive combined effect on IR sensor adoption. The use of wafer-level packaging technology during the manufacturing of IR sensors has helped vendors reduce production costs.”
According to the report, the decline in IR sensor prices is driving market growth. Lower prices are increasing its adoption in consumer electronic equipment and communications devices. Advancements in packaging technology, such as micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMSs) and 3D integrated circuits, have helped the industry reduce the size, power consumption, and cost of sensors. This has helped original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to integrate IR sensors with smartphones, tablet PCs, televisions, fans, air conditioners, DVD players, ovens, and other commercial devices ? all without compromising on design and cost.
Further, the report states that due to the high production cost of IR sensors based on InGaAs, the adoption rates of gas and fire detection equipment are falling in the residential sector. The dependency of IR sensors on IR rays is a technical challenge for vendors.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
