Market Synopsis
The global shortwave infrared market was valued at USD 192.4 million in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 316.8 million by the end of the forecast period at a CAGR of 9%.
Shortwave infrared is an electromagnetic spectrum band that lies in the infrared (IR) range. The shortwave infrared, like the IR, is not directly visible to the naked eyes and ranges in a wavelength from 1.4 to 3 microns or 1,100 to 3,000 nanometers. The shortwave infrared is often used to achieve better image quality than the visible lights imaging. Images captured from shortwave infrared are highly dense and object specific. Different objects have different light absorbing capacities, and most these capacities fall under shortwave infrared. For instance, the light absorbing capacity of water falls under wavelengths of 1,400, 1,900, and 2,400 nanometers. As the object absorbs more and more light the image as a result gets darker in shortwave infrared. This feature of shortwave infrared helps geologist even space scientists in various application, for example, to find water under soil, predict climate change, forecast weather, and locate different objects in the earth’s surface. Moreover, other industries benefitted from shortwave infrared include military, aviation, food processing, semiconductor industry. Image sensors are used in conjunction with shortware infrared to capture the images. Specialized InGaAs sensors can be used in both near infrared (NIR) region and shortwave infrared (SWIR) region, therefore they are ideal for capturing images in the shortwave infrared. One of the major factors that help in the growth of shortwave infrared market is the ability of InGaAs image sensors to capture high-resolution images, and increased demand for shortwave infrared cameras in machine vision applications as well as military and defense industry.
