Infrared Microbolometer Detector: Introduction

  • A Infrared microbolometer detectors is an uncooled infrared sensor, wherein the detector array does not need to be cooled in order to produce highly sensitive thermal images
  • Infrared microbolometer detectors have recently gained wide attention for use in infrared imaging applications, due to their advantages over photon detectors such as lower cost, lower weight, lower power, larger spectral response, and long-term operation
  • Efforts to implement large-format arrays at a low cost in various applications are still continuing worldwide. These applications include commercial applications such as driver’s night vision enhancement and firefighting.

Compatibility with Various Applications

  • Infrared microbolometer detectors are known for their compatibility with various applications. They are used for security and monitoring purposes, non-contact temperature sensing, infrared gas analysis, flame detection, temperature control, detection of human presence, and infrared spectroscopy.
  • In addition, they are employed in several everyday events as well as in houses, cars, and shopping malls. Large-scale adoption of infrared detectors in the latest range of applications, such as security, consumer electronics, and smart homes and presence of various key companies in the market have fueled the global infrared microbolometer detector market.

High Cost and Limited Accuracy

  • Infrared microbolometer detectors are more expensive than other detectors, as they require additional semiconductor components for increased sensitivity. Cooling techniques also increase their overall cost.
  • In addition, temperature change and extreme air turbulence may affect the performance of infrared microbolometer detectors. For more accurate results, the environment needs to be clean, without dust, and less humid. Infrared microbolometer detectors detect infrared images based on the variation in temperature of objects. They cannot detect differences in objects that have a highly similar temperature range. In several circumstances, this leads to inaccuracy.

Asia Pacific to Lead Global Infrared Microbolometer Detector Market

  • In terms of region, the global infrared microbolometer detector market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
  • The infrared microbolometer detector market in Asia Pacific is anticipated to expand at the maximum CAGR during the forecast period, owing to strong support by governments and presence of a large-sized consumer electronics industry in the region. Countries such as India and China are leading exporters of infrared microbolometer detectors in the world.
  • On the other hand, the infrared microbolometer detector market in North America and Europe is likely to witness stagnant growth during the forecast period. The market in Latin America and Middle East & Africa is estimated to witness sluggish growth during the forecast period.
