The global microbolometer market was valued at US$573.531 million in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.70% over the forecast period to reach a total market size of US$846.227 million by 2024. The global microbolometer is expected to propel during the forecast period owing to their growing demand due to their low power consumption, which is cheaper, reliable, and lightweight in comparison to their substitutes. A growing trend of the adoption of low power consumption devices will also bring a positive impact on the growth of the global microbolometer market during the forecast period. Investments in R&D for detector materials like Vanadium Oxide and Amorphous Silicon among other materials used in the microbolometers is further driving the market growth in the forecast period. On the basis of materials, the market is categorized as Vanadium Oxide and Amorphous Silicon, where Vanadium Dioxide is expected to hold a dominant share followed by Amorphous Silicon.
Geographically, North America and Europe are expected to hold a substantial market share due to the safety regulations for utilization of thermal cameras in passenger and commercial vehicles are further driving the market growth in these regions. Also, the early adoption of technology and investments in R&D is further providing an opportunity for the market to grow here during the forecast period.
Some of the companies like Seek Thermal are bolstering their product portfolio by introducing microbolometer technology in designing thermal imaging cameras for smartphones and tablets. This has transformed these devices (smartphones and tablets) into a professional thermal imaging tool which is portable, light in weight, and convenient to use. Furthermore, the market is being driven by the desire to see in complete darkness or through smoke and fog leading to the development and adoption of this imaging technology by various manufacturing and end-use industries.
