Research and Markets: Uncooled Infrared Imaging Technology & Market Trends Report 2014: First Smartphones, And New Low-Cost Cores Widen Commercial Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/wb27p7/uncooled_infrared) has announced the addition of the "Uncooled Infrared Imaging Technology & Market Trends Report" report to their offering.

Consumer applications have moved to a new phase of growth in 2013-2014 and will be the high growth applications over the next few years, especially in terms of shipments (+61% CAGR):

- Personal Vision Systems (goggles, sight for security, hunting, outdoor observation): first successfully pioneered by FLIR and will continue to grow due to many new entrants arriving from the outdoor visible business.

- Smartphones: First smartphone modules (FLIR One, Opgal Android) have been introduced at the ground breaking price of $349 by FLIR in 2014. A high number of pre-release reservations for the FLIR One (> 30k units) already proves the commercial success of this smartphone platform.

An additional scenario envisions an aggressive rapid ramp up of the smartphone application based on a huge price erosion and the integration of the IR core inside the phone. Indeed, smartphone business is an almost 1 B units market in 2013, and any new sensor adopted induces high volumes produced. Those high volumes will only be possible if a huge cost reduction is obtained by the IR imaging industry.
