Global Short Wave IR Market Projected To Reach $52.2 Million by 2018 – Research Report Available at

(PRWEB) November 28, 2014

The Short Wave IR Market is majorly dominated by temperature measurement, in addition to InGaAs and fire detection applications. These applications have contributed to nearly 61% of the overall market in 2013. The highest growth rate is expected from the temperature measurement application, which is around $ 10 million in 2014 and is anticipated to reach $ 17 million by 2020 at a CAGR of 8.7%. The Asia-Pacific region has dominated the IR detector market from SWIR spectral range as majority of the manufacturers are located in Japan and China. The Americas and Europe also have contributed to the rapid progression of this market. The Asia-Pacific SWIR market is estimated to be $ 8 million in 2013 and is projected to reach $ 15 million by 2020, at a CAGR of 9.3%. Complete report is available at .

Short Wave IR or short wave infrared detectors have wavelengths of 1m 4 m. These detectors are meant to deliver better performance in comparison to others. Water absorption increases significantly at 1,500nm. Spectral range from 1,500 – 1,580 is the key range popular for long distance communications. InGaAs and MCT technology is mainly used for the manufacture of SWIR detectors. SWIR image is similar to visible light, and the photons are reflected or absorbed by an object, providing strong contrast needed for high-resolution imaging. Ambient star light and background radiance (nightglow) are natural emitters of SWIR, and they provide excellent illumination for outdoor and night-time detection. Key manufacturers of SWIR detectors are Hamamatsu (Japan) and Vigo (Poland).

The market size for IR detectors from SWIR spectral range is estimated to be nearly $ 21 million in 2013, and is projected to reach $ 40 million by 2020, at a CAGR of 8% from 2014 to 2020. The SWIR market is mainly dominated by InGaAs as majority of the manufacturers prefer this technology due to its enhanced performance rate. Order a copy of this report at .
