The Infrared (IR) Sensor Market is likely to grow at a promising CAGR of 5.1%, in the long run, to reach US$ 1.4 Billion in 2028.
The market for infrared (IR) sensors is driven by the growing demand for automation across several sectors, including industrial, aerospace, and automotive. The IR sensors are of two types: thermal imagers and thermal detectors, forming a crucial part of several automated systems as they help in capturing high-resolution images, along with detecting and monitoring characteristics like temperature, humidity, and gas levels. There are several advantages of thermal imagers and detectors such as ease of use, non-contact sensing, detection of invisible radiation, high sensitivity, and low power consumption. As a result, these sensors are used in several applications.
