Paper Abstract

The Long Wave IR camera market has grown significantly in the last ten years thanks to the strong cost reduction brought by low cost IR detectors/ microbolometers. This led to the development of many new commercial markets and it is expected that IR camera volumes will be multiplied by 4 to reach 1.18 M units in 2016 thanks to the strong price reduction of the cameras meaning +29% CAGR in volume. The uncooled IR camera revenues will grow from $2.1B in 2010 to $3.4 B in 2016. In our paper, we have both analyzed market and technical trends for uncooled infrared imagers' civilian and military applications.
