Executive Infrared Imaging Forum, a fourth edition for the crossing of the million unit threshold

On sept. 6th Yole Développement (Yole) and the China International Optoelectronics Exhibition (CIOE) organized the fourth edition of the Executive Infrared Imaging Forum.

Gathering more than 60 attendees, covering the whole supply chain of the infrared imaging industry, the forum included presentations from key players: Lynred (formerly ULIS), FLIR Systems, chinese companies as HIK Vision and Ningbo Sunny Infrared, Yole Développement and System Plus Consulting, and more.

It was the opportunity to better understand the IR industry and its related applications.
Indeed, from Amazon and LG Innotek to Caterpillar, the infrared sensing market is attracting big names!
Annual microbolometer shipments will reach two million units in two years!
Imaging is nice but detection can also do the job! Can IR imaging coupled to visible imagers and radars be an alternative to LiDAR?

This application is a sure thing for the microbolometer market, with IR imagers used here for industrial and commercial applications including home diagnosis and hot spot identification”, asserts Eric Mounier, PhD, Fellow Analyst, Technology & Market, MEMS & Photonics at Yole.

“The uncooled infrared landscape has also been shaped by the rapid growth of SEEK Thermal,” explains Dimitrios Damianos, PhD, Technology & Market Analyst at Yole.“Having shipped more than 100,000 units in 2017, SEEK Thermal seized a decent share of the 2017 microbolometer market. This new kid on the block markets aggressively, and is trying to address as many infrared applications as possible.

A special thanks to the speakers, attendees and our sponsors Lynred and Sunny Optical, to make it a success this year again!
