The commercial FT-IR market has grown to a respectable $8,000,000 annual business area. It is of importance to both the users and suppliers alike that this market continues to solidify its gains and embark into new areas and applications. This paper reviews the evolution of commercial FT-IR in the context of the over-all infrared field. The purpose of the review is to discuss the progress to date and to relate the growth of this field to the future. The future uses of the FT-IR are projected as well as the requirements for new instrumentation.
