NEW YORK, June 5, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The global infrared light-emitting diode market size is estimated to grow by USD 242.69 million from 2022 to 2027, according to Technavio. The market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 8.09% during the forecast period. APAC is estimated to account for 67% of the global market growth. The region is a global manufacturing center for consumer electronics and other industrial products requiring infrared light-emitting diodes. Furthermore, infrared-emitting diodes are widely used in automotive applications such as driver monitoring and gesture control. The growing automobile production in APAC will drive the adoption of infrared light-emitting diodes, which ultimately drives the growth of the market during the forecast period. Moreover, the widespread acceptance of remote controls by major smart TV and game console manufacturers in the region is another factor driving the demand for infrared-emitting diodes in APAC. Hence, such factors drive the regional market growth during the forecast period.

Infrared Light-emitting Diode Market - Segmentation AssessmentSegment OverviewTechnavio has segmented the market based on type (Gallium arsenide LED and Aluminum gallium arsenide LED), application (consumer electronics, surveillance, automotive, and others), and geography (APAC, North America, Europe, South America, and Middle East and Africa).

The market share growth by the gallium arsenide LED segment will be significant for overall market growth during the forecast period. Gallium arsenide(GaAs) is a semiconductor that can emit light and is used in the LED field because of its direct bandgap. Furthermore, GaAs infrared emitting diodes are fast, which makes them suitable to be used in radio frequency (RF) devices such as mobile phones and microwave ovens, which are primarily used in military applications such as radar and smart weapons. Hence, such factors ultimately increase market revenue over the forecast period.

Infrared Light-emitting Diode Market – Market DynamicsKey factor driving market growth

Increasing integration of biometrics in consumer electronics notably drives the infrared (IR) light-emitting diode (LED) market growth.

Some of the devices integrating complex eye-tracking systems into consumer devices such as smartphones, notebooks, and tablets include advanced computer chips, modern camera sensors, and highly efficient infrared light-emitting diodes.

Furthermore, these systems allow the device to detect the user's eye movements and besides common input methods, eye tracking and retinal scanning enable new intuitive interactions between humans and machines.

Moreover, based on information about the position of a reference object such as a screen, special software can detect exactly where the user is looking.

Hence, the application of biometrics in consumer electronics increases the demand for infrared light-emitting diodes, driving the infrared (IR) light-emitting diode (LED) market growth during the forecast period.

Leading trends influencing the market

The increasing number of smart cities is a key trend that influences the Infrared (IR) LED Market growth.

The number of smart cities is expected to grow rapidly during the forecast period with cutting-edge technologies such as big data and artificial intelligence carrying out tasks such as real-time video surveillance and emergency response.

Also, smart cities use multiple interconnected digital technologies to improve communication between devices, increase performance, reduce costs, and contribute to the efficient use of resources.

Such digital technologies include Smart Pole solutions that support intelligent transportation. These factors increase the demand for surveillance systems and related components such as infrared emitting diodes.

Hence, due to the increasing number of smart cities, the application of infrared light-emitting diodes will increase, which will drive the market over the forecast period.

Major challenges hindering the market growth

Indoor limitations of infrared light-emitting diodes are challenges hindering the IR Light-emitting Diode (LED) Market growth.

Given the reflective surfaces, indoor use of cameras with infrared-emitting diodes is not easy, whereas, in residential applications, infrared-emitting diodes tend to bounce off windows and reflect back onto the camera.

Thus, if the camera is pointed looking through a window, the video will be washed out. Furthermore, infrared cameras can be used indoors when there are open areas free of reflective surfaces, windows, or other objects but it does not perform optimally indoors.

Hence, the limitations on indoor infrared light-emitting diodes will have a negative impact on market growth during the forecast period.
