Spectroscopy is a branch of science that covers the measurement and investigation of dissemination of light that is emitted by an object into colors that constitute the light. A detector that reacts to Infrared rays is called Infrared or IR detector. Photonic and thermal detectors constitute the two main types of detectors.
Infrared or IR spectroscopy is an analytical technique that is considered most important for the scientist. IR spectroscopy enables study of any kind of specimen in any form. With judicious option of sampling, various states of an object such as like gases, films, powders, solutions, pastes, surfaces and fibers are being investigated and studied. The type of sample that is being used for IR spectroscopy determines the sampling procedure of IR spectroscopy. The basic theory of IR spectroscopy encompasses the process wherein infrared rays are made to pass or through a sample. The sample, however, takes in some of the radiation and transmits or passes through the remaining of the radiation. Transmission and Molecular absorption is thus formed out of the resulting spectrum, thereby leading to the production of fingerprint of the specimen. Molecular structures are unique in itself as in no two molecular structures, like a fingerprint, is able to generate the similar infrared spectrum. Thus for various types of analyses, infrared spectroscopy is considered quite useful. Fourier Transform InfraRed or FT-IR is considered one of the most chosen method of infrared spectroscopy and thus Fourier Transform InfraRed spectrometers is the most widely used one.
Spectroscopy IR detectors are now applied in a wide variety of scientific fields. Polymers, organic and inorganic molecules, industrial and biological applications constitute some of it’s widely used implementations.
The demand for spectroscopy is driven by the surge in demand and growing number of consignments of spectroscopy IR detectors that is being shipped. With the upgradation of previous spectroscopy IR devices with the new ones, the market witnesses a growth in this category of medical device. The detectors are now increasingly being used in the biological sector to pinpoint various diseases. Setting an example, to monitor brain injuries, the Polish Academy of Sciences NaAAcZ Institute of Biocybernetics & Biomedical Engineering of Warsaw, Poland has invented an NIR spectroscopy instrument. Such developments in this field are acting as drivers for the spectroscopy IR detector market.
The market for spectroscopy IR detectors is forecasted to grow at a substantially high rate.
However, availability of substitute products of spectroscopy IR detectors in abundance hinders the growth to a significant extent, thereby becoming the major restraining factor.
On the basis of detector technology, the market of spectroscopy IR detector can be divided into deuterated triglycine sulfate (DTGS), mercury cadmium telluride (MCT), indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs), and others. With the increasing implementation of InGaAs-based IR detectors in NIR spectroscopy devices, the role played by the InGaAs-based IR detectors are expected to grow in the IR detector market.
On the basis of product type, the market is divided into microspectroscopes, portable spectroscopes, hyphenated spectroscopes and benchtop spectroscopes. The spectroscopy IR detector market is also expected to grow during the forecast period and the same is expected to be driven by the increasing demand of portable IR spectroscopy device.
Geographically, the spectroscopy IR detector market is divided into North America, Europe, APAC, and RoW. The region of North America accounted for the largest market share of spectroscopy IR detector market in 2015, however, APAC region, due to rapid industrialization, is forecasted to witness highest growth rate during the forecast period.
There are many players in this market, however, the major ones include UTC Aerospace Systems (U.S.), Hamamatsu Photonics K.K. (Japan), LASER Newport Corporation (U.S.), Components GmbH (Germany), Excelitas Technologies Corp. (U.S.), and others.
