?Thermopile infrared detectors are the sensors designed to detect the change in temperature by sensing the infrared radiations emitted by the object under observation. A thermopile is a combination of multiple thermocouple sensors, connected in series or parallel formation, onboard a semiconductor chip, and offers an excellent solution for non-contact or contactless temperature measurement. It consists of interconnected array of thermocouple, each of these thermocouples consists of two dissimilar material with a large thermoelectric coefficient and opposite polarities. In a typical thermopile sensor, the thermocouples are placed across the hot and cold regions of a structure, wherein the hot junctions and cold junctions are thermally isolated from each other. The hot region consists of a black body, which is used for absorbing the incident infrared radiation, which are further used to measure the temperature. The thermopile infrared detectors are manufactured in a variety of sensor packaging, which mainly includes stainless steel packaged housings, hermetically sealed housings, integral circuit boards and connectors. 

Market Dynamics: Global Thermopile Infrared Detector Market 

The thermopile infrared detector market is primarily driven by the increased deliveries of thermopile infrared detector in automotive industries, wireless temperature monitoring, medical scanners, and industrial scanners, as well as residential applications.
