Global InGaAs Image Sensor Market: Introduction

InGaAs image sensors contain a CMOS IC readout circuit for signal operation. InGaAs image sensors have the capability to cover visible (VIS), near infrared (NIR), and short wavelength infrared (SWIR) regions. InGaAs image sensors are classified into two types: InGaAs linear image sensors and InGaAs area image sensors. InGaAs linear images sensors are one-dimensional image sensors operational in visible (VIS), near infrared (NIR), and short wavelength infrared (SWIR) regions, while InGaAs area image sensors are two-dimensional image sensors that are operational in near infrared (NIR) and short wavelength infrared (SWIR) regions. InGaAs image sensors are utilized in various applications such as thermal imaging monitor, laser beam profiler, plastic recycling, food inspection, and laboratory measurement.

Global InGaAs Image Sensor Market: Dynamics

Rising popularity of InGaAs image sensor to sort recycled plastic

Plastic waste is a major issue globally, as it is a non-degradable substance. The U.S. and several countries in Europe are focused on the reduction of plastic waste by recycling it. Visual sorting of plastic for recycling is difficult and hence, SWIR-based spectrographs are utilized to sort plastics in the waste stream. In this sorting process, SWIR 512, or 1024 line scan cameras with wavelength ranging from 1100 to 2200 nm, are used in spectrographs. They rapidly identify the polymer type of plastic waste and accordingly, dump the waste into a separate bin. Moreover, near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy identifies and sorts plastics found in electronic, household, and automotive products. Use of InGaAs image sensors is helpful to reduce plastic waste by sorting it accurately and cost-effectively. Consequently, the InGaAs image sensor market is anticipated to expand during the forecast period.
