LEDinside analyzes infrared sensing market including IR LED and IR laser (VCSEL and EEL). Security surveillance, 2D facial recognition are categorized to IR LED; mobile 3D sensing of VCSEL and LiDAR market are included in IR laser. In 2018, IR LED and IR laser market scale is USD 1.372 billion and it will grow up to USD 2.143 billion in 2020. However, if the World Facing ToF of iPhone is introduced in 2019, the market scale will be able to achieve USD 2.341 billion.

3D sensing includes structured light, ToF and active stereo vision. Structured light is patterned by image; therefore, its depth accuracy is relatively high. However, the high cost and computational complexity become its disadvantages. Compared to the structured light, ToF owns lower accuracy and depth, but its fast response time and wide recognition range are more advantageous. ToF can be divided into the front facing and the world facing. The cost of the front facing time-of-flight is relatively high. The world facing requires a higher VCSEL power, but its cost of sensing module is relatively low. Active stereo vision, which requires two identical cameras with very high hardware requirements, mainly used in the commercial market.

According to Joanne Wu, research manager of LEDinside, the key factor of 3D sensing market is the sales status of APPLE mobile phone. In addition to unlocking and mobile payment function, it needs more powerful incentives to drive the consumers’ buying desire. Furthermore, 2D facial recognition has the advantage of high recognition and can achieve the function of mobile payment, so it is the closest to 3D sensing function, and the cost is relatively low. Therefore, LEDinside expects that the under display fingerprint and 2D facial recognition market will seize the market share of mid-class mobile phones in the future.

With the rise of market demand for 3D sensing and automotive LiDAR, VCSEL manufacturers have also made a series of acquisitions and investments. LEDinside will analyze the advantages and disadvantages of infrared LED, VCSEL and EEL in major infrared applications, manufacturers' expansion plans and product development, providing readers with an overall understanding towards the infrared sensing market.
