Infrared Emitter Market Outlook – 2027 

Infrared (IR) emitter is a small wired transmitter used to transmit infrared signals through an infrared LED from remote to an isolated electronic piece of A/V equipment. IR emitter is composed of a jack that is attached by a thin cable to end of red, plastic-housed transmitter, which, in turn, is connected to the IR window of source equipment with self-adhesive. 

This device finds large-scale application in the consumer electronics industry to control devices such as TVs, fans, DVD players, air-conditioners as it is affordable, reliable, and long-lasting, owing to low power consumption and small size with faster and accurate response. 

In addition, IR emitters are used for security and surveillance in advanced military equipment as they provide security, owing to line-of-sight mode of communication and detection motion of objects in daytime or nighttime as well as in hazardous or corrosive environment with good stability over time. 

Infrared emitters are not affected by radio or electric equipment interference and allows multiple signals to run simultaneously without interfering each other, which enhances product quality standards in the market. Up-gradation of existing detecting and tracking technologies in IR spectroscopy are expected to help the infrared emitter market share experience a significant growth in the coming years.

The global infrared emitter market is segmented on the basis of type, spectral range, application, industry vertical, and region. Based on type, the infrared emitter market is bifurcated into flashing and non-flashing. In terms of spectral range, the market is categorized into Near IR, SWIR, MWIR, LWIR, and Far IR. On the basis of application, the market is divided into security & sensing, monitoring & detection, data transmission, thermal heating, image recognition, and others. In terms of industry vertical, the market is categorized into consumer electronics, IT & telecommunication, aerospace & defense, healthcare, automotive, and others. Geographically, the infrared emitter market is analyzed across several regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa (LAMEA).

Top Impacting Factors

Surge in use of IR emitters and modules in industrial applications such as cutting, welding, laminating of material, increase in adoption of surveillance cameras, especially in unclear atmospheric conditions to spot targets or secret bombs, and demand for centralized home security systems, HVAC, and lighting are primary factors that drive the infrared emitter market growth. 

However, direct exposure to IR radiations through emitters for long period can damage human eyes and skin as well as IR frequencies are affected by hard, opaque objects coming in line-of-sight, which act as restraining factors for the infrared emitter market growth.

Contrarily use of this device in biometric applications for digital banking, mobile payment services as well as smart vehicles, car locking systems, and electronic stability control in the automotive sector is expected to boost the IR emitter market growth. Rise in acceptance and innovation of smart, sensor-based technologies backed by extensive investments by governments and private business firms are anticipated to pave new pathways for the infrared emitter industry.

New Product Launches to Flourish the Market

Leading key market players have taken necessary actions to improve overall accuracy and functionality of IR emitters. Many recent innovations in this technology aim to upgrade the market further.
In May 2020, FLIR Systems Inc., largest commercial company specializing in design and production of imaging sensors, announced FLIR C5 compact Thermal camera incorporated with IR transmitter along with built-in FLIR Ignite Cloud connectivity and Wi-Fi features for professionals in manufacturing and utility industries. 

This is a pocket-portable thermal camera, which helps to directly upload, store, backup images, and to reduce diagnostic time for building inspection, energy auditing, and electrical testing. It features FLIR Lepton thermal imaging sensor and multi-spectral dynamic imaging technology that helps to create a crisp image and guides professional to problem sources such as electrical fault, air leak, hot fuses, and moisture.

Surge in Use of Automotive and Industrial Applications

Reliable IR emitters, owing to rugged nature can be used to develop small, portable measuring instruments for workers in mining and agriculture to monitor emission and process control in biogas or wastewater plants. In addition, it finds several applications in the automotive industry for proximity, parking, lane detection, and automotive night vision.

In September 2019, Voith, a global technology company in mechanical engineering and automation sector, launched gas-fired HelioX IR emitter that can be used to increase productivity and reduce fire risk by contactless drying with low emission, thus improving safety in paper production. 

The main component is the efficient ceramic structure of the incandescent body that ensures 50% reduction in emission of oxides of nitrogen and carbon. HelioX IR emitter is designed to offer output of 14KW and is flexible to produce various paper grades with 10% better efficiency, lower running cost, and reduced CO2 footprint.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

  • The outbreak of COVID-19 has presented huge challenge to national resources and entire race to adapt to existing technologies and deploy new, innovative ones. Use of Infrared Emitter in thermal imaging in particular focuses as it is used to identify potential patients of COVID-19 by detecting temperature differences of their bodies.
  • In May 2020,, an American monthly magazine, reported that IR emitter in IR cameras are used for medical imaging, health monitoring of detected staff with fever by companies such as Amazon, Whole Foods Grocery, and Apple Inc. In addition IR emitters incorporated in vision-guided drones are used to deliver guidelines about maintaining hygiene and help keep factories operational by monitoring grounds with cameras and sending real-time alerts to workers if anything goes wrong at this time of crisis.
  • In May 2020, the Telegraph, an Indian English daily newspaper, reported that FLIR Systems experienced 700% increase in demand for IR cameras detecting changes in skin temperature as slight as 0.010C. Bytronic automation highlights that to achieve accuracy of 0.30C, users need to use a black body that is a highly accurate temperature emitter visible to camera. Increase in demand for IR emitters in the healthcare sector for thermal imaging by potential clients such as government agencies, schools, hospitals, police stations, warehouses, and private businesses at this time of crisis is expected to surge the infrared emitter market share.
