Owing to the kind of applications they can be used for, there is a growing demand for Infrared (IR) detectors. IR detectors can be classified on the basis of their spectral range. Short wave infrared (SWIR) falls in the range of of 1µm - 4 µm. Short wave infrared detectors have the advantage of detecting the presence of objects in low light and completely dark environments. This makes them very well suited for applications such as military, surveillance and so on. SWIR imaging also has the added benefit of low power consumption. Another application of SWIR detects are for the use of temperature measurement and hence can also be used for detection of fire.

The availability of alternative options in CMOS and CCD based devices proves to be highly competitive for the SWIR market. Additionally, government regulations coupled with the high cost of materials are inhibiting the growth of this market. In the U.S., particularly, International Traffic in Arms (ITAR) requirements are imposed on companies manufacturing SWIR cameras. In the case of manufacturing setups, SWIR detectors can be used to identify irregularities, if any, that can otherwise not be detected by the naked eye.

A significant amount of research and development efforts are currenlty underway around the world which can further the growth of this market.

Amongst all the available materials, Indium Gallium Arsenide is expected to grow at the highest CAGR till the end of the forecast period. This is owing to the fact that that SWIR detectors made from Indium Gallium Arsenide operate effciently at room temperature and do not require cooling. The Short Wave Infrared market can be segmented on the basis of materials Indium Gallium Arsenide, Mercury Cadmium Telluride, Indium Antimonide, Lead Sulfide and Others. In terms of applications, the Short Wave Infrared market has been segmented across the following Manufacturing, Agriculture, Commercial, Automotive, Medical, Semiconductors, Aerospace and Defense and Others.

North America is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period owing to the presence of some of the major manufactures and a lucrative end-user market as well. The market has been segmented based on the following geographies North America, South America, APAC, Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Following are just a few of the companies that are operating in the Short Wave Infrared market:

FLIR Systems Inc.

Sensors Unlimited

DRS Technologies

Teledyne Inc.

Allied Vision Technologies GmbH
