The price competition is the general lighting market rising, manufacturers want to hold the future profit, high power module and other niche products, will play a very important role. Among them, the infrared LED will be one of the most noteworthy new areas.
With the emergence of modern Internet of things, biometrics and wearable devices, all kinds of sensors and image recognition technology become more and more important. The application characteristics of IRLED become an important auxiliary light source. It can be used in iris recognition, face recognition and other special applications after combining the sensing device and identification technology. It can also be used in wearable devices, which can quantify the physiological state of human body and become a new tool for health management. In view of the surge in penetration of smart phones, cars, monitoring systems and other applications of infrared LED, the IRLED market continues to heat up IRLED more and more attention.
Some Chinese manufacturers cut into the infrared LED market, leading to a rapid decline in some mainstream IRLED prices. However, with the advent of a variety of emerging applications, such as industrial safety monitoring, virtual reality device and face and iris identification applications, the infrared LED output value growth. Estimated 2017 infrared LED market size forecast (excluding optical sensing element market) is about 441 million US dollars. It's expected to grow to $699 million by 2021.

FaceID can not do without infrared technology
In September 13th, in order to commemorate the first intelligent iPhone mobile phone listing 10th anniversary, Apple Corp launched the so-called "the most powerful flagship iPhoneX" ever. As a product of great expectations of Apple Corp, one of the most exciting black technology is undoubtedly FaceID face recognition technology, replacing the previous TouchID. There is no doubt that this will set off a new wave in the field of smart phones.
Compared with the traditional face recognition technology, apple FaceID technology based on image recognition technology of 3D imaging, which adopts active light irradiation system and special camera combined with the three-dimensional model of the face, based on the collected data, and solve the safety and low light environment into the problem of reactive recognition.
One specific capture process includes: through the distance sensor and light sensor feedback to determine the strength of the infrared imaging system, face recognition required; and then through the infrared emission generator to face the naked eye can not recognize the infrared light scanning point up to 30 thousand; infrared camera scanning point reflected back from the face, the face image model 3D.
In the process of recognition of infrared light plays an important role in the apple brand driven by infrared products will show rapid growth in the next few years, the development of the industry is undoubtedly a good news. As a representative enterprise in the global semiconductor field of application development, OSRAM began to put the infrared early in 1972, and has become the fastest growing business direction. Continue to work in the field based on photoelectric semiconductor, OSRAM has become a global leader in the application of infrared enterprises, with a complete product layout and strong R & D ability to customize. Optimistic about the prospects based on OSRAM also announced further expansion in the infrared LED R & D personnel, to be the next outbreak of the market.
In addition to the application of iris recognition, face recognition, security monitoring, health monitoring, laser radar, 3D sensor, is also considered a potential market in the future of infrared LED. As an industry leader, OSRAM has taken the lead in layout, and continuously explore the new application direction of infrared LED.
