InGaAs Image Sensors Market Overview
The InGaAs Image Sensor market is estimated to grow by nearly US$ 900 Mn in 2021, with a CAGR of nearly 12% from 2021-2031. InGaAs Image Sensor is a type of sensor, which encompasses CMOS IC readout circuit for easy signal processing. This sensor can be used for image sensing and easy signal processing applications.
These sensors work on charge integration mode to increase the output signal making them perfect for low-level light detection. They have the potentiality to cover near infrared (NIR), short wavelength infrared (SWIR) and visible (VIS) regions.
InGaAs image sensors are of two types: InGaAs area image sensors and InGaAs linear image sensors. InGaAs area image sensors are 2D (two-dimensional) image sensors which are operated in near infrared (NIR) and short wavelength infrared (SWIR) regions.
InGaAs linear images sensors are 1D (one-dimensional) image sensors, which are operated in visible (VIS), near infrared (NIR), and short wavelength infrared (SWIR) ranges. InGaAs image sensors are used for wide application such as laser beam profiler, thermal imaging monitor, food inspection, and laboratory measurement.
What is Driving Demand for InGaAs Image Sensors?
The characteristics of InGaAs image sensors are low power consumption and the ability to image at high frame rate. These two major drivers are helping in the growth of InGaAs image sensors globally. With more and more countries using InGaAs image sensors technology for reduction of plastic, the global market is likely to see immense potential for growth in coming years.
Further, advancement in industrial imaging technology is also adding opportunities for InGaAs image sensors. These sensors have higher pixel count and smaller size, which can be used for imaging processes across the manufacturing sector.
InGaAs image sensors can be used for image sensing and easy signal processing, this too is likely to garner demand in the global InGaAs image sensors market. Hybrid structure of Area sensors is further impelling many industries for the need of InGaAs image sensors.
What are the Key Trends for InGaAs Image Sensors?
Different industries are moving towards the application of InGaAs image sensors with their ability to image at high frame rates, this leads the way for growth of InGaAs image sensors. There are two line scan cameras: SWIR 512 and 1024 line cameras. They have the wavelength range from from1100 to 2200 nm and are used for spectrographs.
They dump the waste into a separate bin by rapidly identifying the polymer type of plastic. The InGaAs image sensors is helpful in reducing plastic waste. Also, the sensors can sort it accurately and cost-effectively. This is anticipated to be a major trend driving InGaAs image sensors demand.
