TrendForce 2021 Infrared Sensing Market Trend- 3D Sensing, LiDAR, SWIR LED

According to TrendForce 2021 Infrared Sensing Market Trend- 3D Sensing, LiDAR, SWIR LED, as the market growth of major applications including 3D sensing for mobile devices (smartphone, tablet and AR), automotive in-cabin sensing (DMS and OMS), LiDAR markets (ADAS, autonomous vehicle, industry, delivery and smart city), eye tracking, security surveillance and PPG continuously boost demands, the infrared sensing market scale in 2025 is expected to reach USD 3.862 billion. The following major applications all have above-average growth momentum!

3D Sensing for Mobile Devices
World facing 3D sensing functions include rangefinder, blur photo effect (background removal included), 3D object recognition, spatial modeling and augmented reality. So far, the integration of 3D sensing with 5G connectivity has been introduced in smartphones and tablets to provide AR-assisted interior design, home renovation, home additions, and even integration with video games. 3D sensing solutions may even see cross-industry commercial opportunities in the future. Hence, the introduction of 3D sensing in augmented reality glasses in the future is more worth looking forward to!

According to TrendForce, the LiDAR application markets include ADAS, autonomous vehicle, industry, delivery and smart city.
Under the impact of COVID-19 pandemic, the development of automotive industry did not go as expected. Yet, major car makers have released new energy vehicles. High-end traditional vehicles and new energy vehicles are mostly equipped with ADAS. In addition, because LiDAR is considered to be the necessary sensor to reach the autonomous vehicle L4 and L5, car makers have adopted LiDAR in advance to create database and increase accuracy. In addition, automotive LiDAR is also used in autonomous bus, Robo-Taxi and truck.
With the booming development of e-commerce, e-commerce and express companies have adopted unmanned delivery machine, bicycle messenger and autonomous truck in order to reduce the cost and increase the efficiency of last mile delivery. Thereby, delivery robots with automatic navigation and autonomous decision-making functions enjoy high demand.
Furthermore, due to the impact of COVID-19 crisis, the industrial automation market development did not go as expected. Most manufacturers postponed the original plans based on their budgets. Yet, some manufacturers have actively developed industrial automation due to manpower shortage in the future. Although 1H21 will still be affected by COVID-19 pandemic, the European and the US markets will have a chance to boost the demand for industrial automation in 3Q21 following the postponement of development caused by the pandemic in 2020.

Automotive In-Cabin Sensing (Driver Monitoring System and Occupancy Monitoring System)
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), Euro NCAP and European Union actively promote driver monitoring system (DMS) and occupancy monitoring system (OMS) in car models. Responding to the policy, vehicle manufacturers will drive the entry of first-tier DMS system manufacturers and component suppliers. Priority will be given to the installation of driver monitoring systems in the OE markets of passenger and commercial vehicles. Car makers include Audi, BMW, Cadillac (GM), Ford, Mazda, Infiniti (Nissan), Lexus (TOYOTA), Mercedes-Benz, Subaru, Volkswagen, Volvo, Maxus, Great Wall Motors, BORGWARD, Geely and Hyundai. Indirect ToF can detect longer distance and obtain 3D depth information. It is believed that indirect ToF technology will be introduced into new car models in 2022-2023. In addition, Tesla has already introduced DMS/OMS into the Model 3.

Eye Tracking
Eye tracking technology is extremely useful in solving motion sickness, enhancing immersion and improving interaction. Through foveated rendering, the GPU load can be reduced by 50-60%. Since 2020, eye tracking starts to be used in AR products. In addition, the market scale will grow with increasing shipments of augmented reality and virtual reality products in the future.

Infrared Niche Market- SWIR LED
Short Wave InfraRed LED (SWIR LED) is on wavelength of 1,050-2,500nm. The major SWIR LED market applications include FoD recognition, proximity sensor, blood glucose / alcohol monitoring, machine vision (hyperspectral imaging), etc. Machine vision (hyperspectral imaging) adopts SWIR light source and InGaAs camera to bin the spectroscopic properties according to different materials. SWIR LED suppliers contain DOWA, USHIO, Hamamatsu, Showa Denko, Epistar, Epileds, etc. Amongst those, DOWA can provide SWIR LED products with higher brightness than average level in the industry.

With focus on the major infrared sensing markets in 2021, TrendForce discusses and analyzes market scale, opportunity and challenge, product specification and supply chain from the prospective of terminal market, with an aim to provide a more comprehensive understanding of infrared sensing markets for readers.
