Global Passive Infrared Motion Sensor Market 2016-2020

About Passive Infrared Motion Sensor

A PIR motion sensor detects infrared (IR) radiation to detect the presence of an object in its close proximity. Most objects with temperature exceeding absolute zero generally radiate heat energy at the wavelengths of infrared lights. A PIR-based sensor device does not generate any heat while detecting IR radiation. The sensors are capable of identifying the difference in IR radiations when an object is overlapping the primary subject of IR radiation detection. Benefits of using PIR motion sensors are that these sensors use less power and are rarely activated by airflow.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global passive infrared motion sensor market to grow at a CAGR of 10.74% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Passive Infrared Motion Sensor Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global passive infrared motion sensor market: Atmel Corporation, Honeywell International, Murata Manufacturing, Panasonic Corporation, and Robert Bosch GmbH.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Cypress Semiconductor, Elmos Semiconductor, and Epson Toyocom.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Emergence of sensor fusion technology is one of the key trends leading to market growth. Sophisticated sensor-based applications offer a high order of functionality by adding sensor data from different sources together. Most detectors incorporate up to five sensors in a single detector, such as a long-range PIR motion sensor, a short-range PIR motion sensor, a microwave sensor, a white light sensor, and a temperature sensor to collect accurate data. The sole objective of having sensor-based data fusion is to ensure that a PIR motion sensor device provides accurate detection, even in the event of unfavorable factors ruling the surrounding range of the device as well as generate less number of false alerts.”

According to the report, a major driver leading to market expansion is the growth in public construction projects. Economic growth worldwide has led to new construction projects such as public buildings, private residences, office buildings, shopping complexes, and airports. With technological advances, new features such as automatic doors, escalators, and automatic taps are being installed in construction projects, which increase the ease of accessibility and enhance the aesthetic appeal of buildings. These new features in PIR motion sensors are gaining traction among end-users due to the growing urbanization and improving the standard of living.

Further, the report states that technical drawbacks will be a challenge for the market. PIR motion sensors are not free of technical drawbacks, which pose a subsequent challenge to market vendors. These sensors can raise false alarms after detecting a pet’s movement. Their sensing range may differ, and they tend to provide inaccurate output for distant objects. In addition, they cannot find out the distance between two objects. Therefore, their applications are restricted only to certain areas such as parking lots.
