In most of the countries, in order to control the chances of accidents, automakers have been developing connected cars in which IR LEDs have been used prominently. It is thus rather overt that the advent of technically advanced features in every end-use sector will stimulate the infrared (IR) LED industry share. In line with the surging use of sensors in the various products, equipment, and vehicular systems, giants in infrared LED market have been investing in the enhancement of their product ranges.

A summary of the IR LED market trends from the automotive and consumer electronics sectors has been outlined below:

Automotive:

In the last few years, the automotive industry has witnessed a remarkable transformation with the advent of electric vehicles, connected cars, and self-driving cars. In addition, the growing concern among the automakers about the safety of occupants and the driver has encouraged them to bring new sensor assisted technologies such as excellent night vision, parking assistance, and blind spot detection. One of the renowned German automakers, Mercedes has implemented the Night View Assist system in its newly launched vehicle models that have full-LED headlamps incorporated with anti-dazzle infrared technology. The deployment of such IR LED technologies helps drivers bypass animals and pedestrians at night.

In addition, the company has also deployed a thermal imaging and IR camera which could enhance the chances of spotting the objects ahead of the vehicle effectively. The use of IR technologies and innovative features in the recently developed automobiles for improving the safety, driving efficacy, and comfort is poised to propel infrared LED industry share. For the record, in 2017, the automotive sector accounted for 30% share of the infrared LED industry.

Speaking more about innovations, it is prudent to mention that in order to gain competitive benefits, many companies are striving to launch new products in the automotive industry that could have a significant influence on IR LED industry outlook. For instance, recently, in January 2018, the Taiwan based company, Innolux Corporation has launched the first active matrix (AM) based Mini LED technology that has been used in automotive backlight panels. In addition, they are planning to develop a free shaped LCD for improving the appearance and design of future concept vehicles.

Consumer electronics:

With the deployment of next-generation technologies such as IoT, AR, and AI, consumer electronics sector has emerged as one of the revenue generating business areas lately. In this regard, the giants in the infrared LED market have already increased their focus on research and development activities. Currently the leading smartphone makers and security system providers are innovating a new range of sensor technologies for deploying the same in smartphones and security cameras. As on today, for attracting more customers, smartphone makers are adopting new product designs like the multiple camera setup where they are extensively using sensors and LEDs. Recently, Nokia has unveiled its plan to develop a new smartphone having five rear cameras that could be incorporated with IR focusing apparatus, five lenses, and LED flash.

In another instance, a multinational lighting manufacturer, Osram is planning to invest 1 billion euros to expand an LED chip factory across Malaysia, the products of which will be used in phones, laptops, drones, fitness watches, security cameras, and automobiles. Moreover, Osram has been continuously involved in the invention of infrared LED chip for optimizing the effectiveness of security cameras. The Increasing requirement of CCTV cameras across the Asia Pacific region will further generate lucrative opportunities for the players in the infrared LED industry.

The extensive deployment of technology across the automotive and consumer electronics industries will have a favorable influence on the infrared LED market. The involvement of many industries in digitalization for improving work efficiency, product performance, and consumer comfort also will fuel the product demand over the years ahead. In line with the shifting trends toward digitalization, infrared (IR) LED market will generate a revenue of more than USD 1 billion by the end of 2024.
