Important factors driving the growth of the infrared emitter and receiver market are

  • Rapidly rising global military and defense investment coupled with increased funding towards research and development in the defense manufacturing industry.
  • Escalating tensions between governments and vulnerable security situations are further increasing investment in defense equipment.
  • Infrared technology can be used to gain intel, not visible to the naked eye, through thermal imaging and night vision features. Thus, it becomes an integral component of border security maintenance. This has led to the rampant adoption of Infrared Imaging technologies, globally.
  • IR technology’s potential is also being harnessed to stop inter-border criminal activities.
  • Infrared sensors are a lucrative option for consumers due to their high energy efficiency, and motion-sensing capacities.
  • Versatile applications of IR across different industries for heat detection and wireless automation, such as transportation, construction, logistics, aerospace technology, electronics, law enforcement, defense, and healthcare.

Infrared Emitter and Receiver Market: Opportunities and Restraints

The rise in innovation within the IR manufacturing industry is expected to sustain the growth of the IR emitter and receiver market in the coming years. For instance, Mitsubishi declared the launch of their product- the Electric Diode InfraRed sensor. The rapidly escalating tension between nations is further purported to aid in the infrared emitter and receiver market’s expansion.

However, a promising trend of market growth is threatened by certain key drawbacks of IR technology, such as its inability to go past opaque objects such as hard walls. Since infrared is essentially radiation, it is also touted to have a detrimental impact on human health and vision. The transmission rate with IR technology is low compared to other modern technologies, and IR generally offers only single device screen control at a time.
