Readout Integrated Circuits (ROIC) Market: Introduction

  • The readout integrated circuit (ROIC) is a silicon chip that contains circuits that amplify, integrate, and multiply the charge of weak detectors. ROICs are compatible with different types of detectors such as infrared and ultraviolet. The main purpose of ROIC is to accumulate the photocurrent from each pixel and transfer the resulting signal to the output tap for reading.
  • The ROIC has a high speed analog output for transferring pixel data out of the integrated circuit. When a digital output is implemented, the IC is called a digital read integrated circuit (DROIC).
  • Digital readout integrated circuits (DROICs) are a class of ROIC that utilize on-chip analog-to-digital conversion (ADC) to digitize the stored photocurrent in each pixel of the imaging array. DROICs are easier to integrate into a system than ROICs, as they reduce package size and complexity; are less sensitive to noise; and they have more bandwidth than analog outputs.
  • A digital pixel readout integrated circuit (DPROIC) employs on-chip analog-to-digital conversion (ADC) within each pixel (or small group of pixels) to digitize the stored photocurrent in the imaging array. DPROICs have an even higher bandwidth than DROICs, which can significantly improve the well capacity and dynamic range of the device.
  • ROICs are used in applications of infrared image detection, thermal image monitor, foreign object detection, semiconductor testing, hyperspectral imaging, traffic monitoring, etc.

Rising Demand for Readout Integrated Circuits in Aerospace & Defense and Healthcare Industries 

  • Based on end-use industry, the market can be segmented into healthcare, aerospace & defense, automotive, and others (consumer electronics, industrial, etc.)
  • Aerospace & defense and healthcare segments of the global readout integrated circuits (ROIC) market is estimated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period due to an increase in use of ROICs for Infrared image detection, thermal image monitoring, and traffic monitoring
  • Advancement in IR imaging systems can help in several applications such as night vision, disaster rescue, homing and tracking, ecology and weather forecasting, surveillance, predictive inspection and maintenance, remote temperature sensing, short range communication, spectroscopy, and medical diagnostic and treatment.
  • Presently, use of IR imaging systems is increasing due to their fruitful diverse applications, ranging from medical diagnosis to military surveillance. This is expected to drive the readout integrated circuits (ROIC) market.

North America to Lead Global Readout Integrated Circuits (ROIC) Market

  • In terms of region, the global readout integrated circuits (ROIC) market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa
  • North America is projected to dominate the global market due to an increase in usage of IR imaging systems as they become important in healthcare, industrial, and automotive applications. Increasing  demand  for  portable  infrared  imaging applications  in  the field  requires  high  performance  IR  focal plane arrays with low-noise, low-power consumption, and high dynamic range ROIC. Innovation in technologies are expected to increase the demand for ROIC.
  • The readout integrated circuits (ROIC) market in North America is expected to expand at a high growth rate due to the presence of major players in the region and increased competition among them. The market in Europe and Asia Pacific is likely to expand at a steady pace during the forecast period owing to reduced competition in the market in these regions.

This upcoming business intelligence report is intended to be a one-stop market research solution to guide organizations in taking timely and effective decisions for their business growth. The ongoing study is the culmination of our deep expertise on data science methods, combined with an unparalleled understanding of the external environment and analysis of the industries. Each of the reports by TMR aims at offering a detailed scrutiny of the value chain of our current and prospective customers, takes them from identifying value propositions, and subsequently assist their business executives to implement right strategies to create customer value. We believe that creating and sustaining the customer value is the key pivot on which business executives can create profits for their organizations and increase the market shares, continuously and with sustainability.

Each of our touchpoints through which we engage with the organization/enterprise during the primary research enables us to understand the internal environment it operates in and the ways in which the external environment influences its growth.
