Global Infrared Sensor Market: Snapshot

The significant rise in security concerns among consumers and the growing demand for consumer electronics products is impacting the global market for infrared sensors greatly. The massive demand for security at commercial places, such as offices, hospitals, and hotels is likely to push the growth of this market upward in the next few years.

Apart from this, the decline in the retail prices of these sensors is also estimated to bolster the demand for infrared sensors remarkably over the next few years. The rising trend of automation across end users, such as the semiconductor and electronics, aerospace and defense, and the medical and healthcare industries is another important factor that is expected to boost the growth of the infrared sensor market, globally, in the years to come. The market, however, may be restricted to some extent in the future by the high manufacturing cost and stringent government rules and regulations.

The global market for infrared sensors stood at US$238.8 mn in 2015. Rising at a healthy CAGR of 12.80% from 2015 to 2024, the opportunity in this market is likely to touch US$692.8 mn by the end of 2024.
