Manufacturing industries and processes are undergoing automation rapidly across the globe. Today, automation sensing technology has achieved a high level of accuracy. Pyrometer is a device used to measure temperature. Encompassed under a class of thermometers, pyrometers are used to measure the heat and type of heat discharged from an object. Modern pyrometers, also known as infrared pyrometers, measure the energy radiated from an object. Infrared pyrometers can measure radiation from a distance, and there is no need for direct contact between the device and the object. These can also measure the temperature of cooler objects. The most common infrared pyrometer is the spot infrared pyrometer. Infrared pyrometers have a wide range of applications across heavy industrial processes. These enable measuring temperature in applications where conventional sensors cannot be employed, such as in moving objects. Rise in trend toward industrial automation is driving the adoption of infrared pyrometers across various manufacturing industries.

Primary distinguishing features of infrared pyrometers include field of view, type of surface measured, spectral response, temperature range, response time, and mounting. Infrared pyrometers witness high demand for advanced temperature sensing due to their advanced features, such as easy integration with technologies, such as fiber optics for easy instrument control and enablement of smooth temperature measurement of distant objects. Additionally, infrared pyrometers can reach adverse locations integrating with probes. However, factors such as high operational and investment costs are restraining the growth of the global infrared pyrometer market. Increasing demand for dual-wavelength infrared pyrometers is expected to create significant growth opportunity for the infrared pyrometer market. Upgrade of conventional temperature measuring devices (such as thermocouples and thermistors) in production processes to infrared pyrometers for better quality check is also driving the growth of the infrared pyrometer market. However, infrared pyrometers might not deliver optimum performance in applications which does not specifically demand for these type of pyrometers. This factor restricts their demand to specific applications. Vendors operating in the infrared pyrometer market are offering additional features integrated into infrared pyrometers that enable accurate temperature measurement in moving objects.

The global infrared pyrometer market can be segmented based on type, device type, end-user, and region. Based on type, the global infrared pyrometer market can be segmented into dual-wavelength and two-color. The dual-wavelength segment is expected grow rapidly during the forecast period. In dual-wavelength infrared pyrometers, wavelength can be adjusted so that the temperature can be viewed even through optical obstructions such as steam, water, flames, etc. Based on device type, the market can be bifurcated into portable and fixed mounted. In terms of end-user, the market can be classified into metal industry, glass manufacturing industry, polymer industry, and others (mining, etc.).

Based on region, the global infrared pyrometer market can be categorized into North America, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, South America, and Europe. Asia Pacific accounts for the dominant share of the global infrared pyrometer market. Growth of the market in Asia Pacific can be attributed to rising industrialization and urbanization in different countries across the region and increasing demand for temperature sensing devices across various industries. China and India held dominant share in the infrared pyrometer market in Asia Pacific. The U.S, Germany, France, and Japan are among the other major countries witnessing growth of the infrared pyrometer market.

Key players operating in the global infrared pyrometer market include Land Instruments International Ltd., LumaSense Technologies, Accurate Proxitron, Optron GmbH, PCE Deutschland GmbH, Accurate Sensors Technologies Ltd., OMEGA Engineering, Optris GmbH, Micro-Epsilon, Accurate Sensors Technologies Ltd., Pentronic, SE, and Fluke Process Instruments. Vendors are offering integrated additional features in their products to meet customer requirements.
