Infrared Imaging Market – Introduction

Infrared (IR) imaging is a technique used to capture invisible infrared image to convert it into a visible image. Infrared light is invisible to human eye and needs IR cameras and imagers. Infrared imaging devices are equipped with special sensors which enables them to operate even in darkness, and make them a viable choice for various applications. Infrared imaging market is rapidly accelerating owing to the growing adoption of infrared imaging systems for applications, such as security check, and surveillance of important equipment in enterprises.

Infrared imaging was initially developed for military applications, such as binoculars, gun lights, and night vision cameras, however, now it is widely used for various commercial purpose due to growing technology advancement in this space. As closed circuit television (CCTV) camera technologies fail to provide proper detection of image in darkness, infrared imaging technology is gaining traction for the same. Infrared imaging system can easily penetrate through dust, smoke, fog and even during the worst lighting conditions to capture images, which is fueling its adoption for various applications. These driving factors pushed the infrared imaging market to value roughly US$ 5 Billion in 2018.
