Infrared & Machine Vision Technology Market Research Reports offers market trends and research reports on machine vision and infrared technology with market forecasts for the period 2013-2018.

DALLAS, Aug. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- By 2018, the industrial machine vision market will reach nearly $2 billion and infrared detector market is expected to top revenues of $381M in 2018, growing at a 16% CAGR in a scenario that includes spot thermometer function in mobile devices.  Total industrial machine vision sales accounted for 1.2M cameras in 2012, a number expected to reach $2B in 2018, at an 8% CAGR. After moderate 1% growth in 2012 (a reflection of the economic downturn facing the global industry),an upturn is expected in the future, thanks to the automatization trend in Asian factories, new capital expenditures in the semiconductor industry and the emergence of new low-end applications. Growth in the low-end segments will be driven by strong price erosion stemming from the commoditization of machine vision subsystems. Within the infrared technology market, small detector applications, growth in mobile applications is expected to be driven, in the short term, by adoption of mono-pixel sensors for internal temperature measurement and spot thermometry in smart phones and tablets. Technological innovation will be the key to compete successfully with other technologies in that market. Wafer-level-packaging will be necessary to successfully address these markets driven by price and looking for ever smaller form factor sensors. A specific scenario for adoption of IR sensors in mobile devices raises the market revenues in 2018 by $30M.

The report "Infrared Detectors Technology & Market Trends"  ( says array detectors which range from medium size(4×4 to 16×16 pixels) to large size (32×32 and above) are expected to grow at a ~30% CAGR in the 2013/2018 period. Medium size arrays have started to be successfully sold in HVAC for buildings and automotive, people counting for retail, home appliances and will continue to expand due to affordable pricing. Large size arrays are expected to target the key market for smart building automation that will use a wide variety of detector functions and could support higher pricing. However, overall, these positive market dynamics will be fueled by detector price erosion. This report features data and information analysis on market segmentation by 10 applications and 4 technologies. The report covers the IR sensors that supply a signal to be analyzed for detection rather than imaging.
