InGaAs Camera Market Dynamics

Increasing Adoption of InGaAs Camera in Defense and Military

Defense and military worldwide are using InGaAs camera on a large scale due to the enhanced performance features such as lightweight, high quality night vision, target recognition, portability, and attached covert eye-safe lasers. One of the biggest advantage driving the demand for InGaAs camera in military and defense is offering clear image in the low light condition, thereby, supporting surveillance purposes.

Short Wave Infarded Radiation (SWIR) InGaAs camera is finding wide application in the military and defense owing to the advanced features such as lightweight design, night vision, portability, and sensitivity to nightglow. The major benefit of SWIR imaging is its ability to image through fog, glass, and haze. In defense sector SWIR technology in InGaAs camera is used in various applications such as range finding, imaging through fog, camouflage detection, and perimeter surveillance.

InGaAs FPA Camera Technology Gaining Traction in InGaAs Camera Market

InGaAs Focal Panel Array (FPA) cameras are finding wide application in the research and development owing to the sensitivity and efficiency. FPA can achieve high sensitivity in the shortwave infrared bands in addition to the visible response. Moreover, with the advent of deep cooled camera systems that employ InGaAs FPA has boosted the use of various spectroscopy and SWIR imaging techniques for the low light industrial and scientific applications.

Commercial Near Infrared (NIR) cameras incorporating the InGaAs FPA sensors are also being designed on a large scale for use in thermal inspection and night vision. On the other hand, scientific applications are demanding camera systems to achieve best signal-to-noise ratio. Meanwhile, owing to the low bandgap of InGaAs material, InGaAs FPA camera have high dark current compared to the Si-CCD camera, hence, manufacturers are focusing on minimizing dark noise in the InGaAs FPA camera by using deep cooling. Moreover, manufacturers are also producing new deep cooled, scientific, and large-format InGaAs FPA camera in order to help researchers to work efficiently at long wavelengths in the SWIR and NIR regions of the spectrum.

Stringent Import and Export Regulations to Restrain InGaAs Camera Market Growth

One of the major factors hampering the growth of the InGaAs camera market is strict import and export regulations on these cameras. Many countries can only receive thermal imaging cameras with proper documentation and restrictions as the law on import and export of InGaAs camera varies from country to country. However, the countries under the Wassenaar Agreement are allowed to purchase micro-bolometer based thermal imaging camera with 17 um pixel pitch and 384x288 pixel resolution. Most of the regulations on the export of the InGaAs camera across various countries is owing to its wide application in the military and defense.
