Passive Infrared Sensor Market Surges: Global Sales Projected to Reach US$1.3 Billion by 2032

The industry that produces and distributes passive infrared sensors is known as the passive infrared sensor market. PIR sensors are electrical devices that have the ability to identify infrared radiation generated by nearby objects. These sensors are often utilised in many different applications, such as energy management, occupancy detection, automated lighting control, and security systems.

With a CAGR of almost 15%, the passive infrared sensor market is expected to develop considerably between 2022 and 2032 and reach a worth of about US$ 1.3 billion. The primary factor driving the worldwide infrared sensor market is the growing usage of passive infrared sensors in a range of electrical devices.

A passive infrared sensor is an electronic device that can generate light and detect the motion of an infrared emitting source, such as a human. Passive infrared sensors are used in security equipment, cameras, thermal cameras, spectrometers, household appliances, gas and fire detection systems, pyrometers, and temperature sensors, among other things.
