Shortwave Infrared Market – Competitive Landscape & Technological Breakthroughs Analysis in Next Few Years


Imaging in the shortwave infrared (SWIR) comprises a wavelength band ranging from 0.9um to 2.5um has attracted much attention in recent years due to its new applications. Shortwave infrared cameras are standalone device used to detect radiation which is invisible to the human eye. Advancements in SWIR sensors is one of the primary drivers for growing interest in areas like conventional surveillance imaging and advancements in hyper spectral imaging application.

Shortwave Infrared (SWIR) waveband has some unique qualities that make it a useful band for sensing. For imaging application, the Shortwave infrared (SWIR) can uniquely work in the dark as an infrared sensors even though the signal is reflected off the subject. For instance, Lumigon introduces a T3 smartphone that comes with a vision camera with dual IR flash that helps a person to see in complete darkness.

One of the driving factor of shortwave infrared is that it can detect objects in low-light and complete darkness. This feature makes it suitable for its usage in military and surveillance, among others. Additionally, shortwave infrared has an added benefit of low power consumption and can be used to measure temperature; therefore, it can be also used for fire detection. The price of SWIR cameras are comparatively higher than other alternative technologies available. This is expected to hamper the market during the forecast period.
