The global hyperspectral imaging market has been segmented on the basis of application and region. On the basis of applications, the market is segmented into military surveillance, environmental testing, mining & mineralogy, agriculture, machine control and process vision, life science and medical diagnostics, food, colorimetry, and meteorology. This market is witnessing a significant growth because of its increasing application in the areas, such as agriculture, medical diagnostics, environmental and conservation, research studies related to geology, marine research, forestry and oceanography, drug discovery, preclinical research, disease diagnosis, and imaging various cellular and molecular processes in vivo, technological advancement,  among others.

North America accounted for the largest market share of the global hyperspectral imaging Market, and it is expected to grow at a significant CAGR due to the growing demand for hyperspectral imaging techniques from American military & defense sector, a large number of academic and research laboratories, rising investments for technological development in the healthcare sector, and fiber optics and photonics.

However, as a result of monolithically integrating spectral filters with image sensors, an interest from image sensor vendors can be seen in moving higher up on the value chain by providing hyperspectral sensors, instead of generic image sensors without spectral filters.

Hyperspectral imaging is a digital spectroscopy, which combines methods, such as NIR (near infrared), visible, and fluorescence imaging. This technique is more sensitive and accurate to find objects, identify materials, or detect processes. The HS image processes information across electromagnetic spectrum. The technique aims at obtaining each pixel of the image, which is far or near in the scene. These images are then processed to make a 3-dimensional cube for spatial and spectral analysis.

The principle of the HSI is spectral-based contrast, which is generated by using a sample image’s either reflected, or transmitted or emitted light. In the process of image capturing, multiple wavelengths are used, and each pixel in an HS image comprises a spectrum over an appropriate spectral region.

This report covers the definition, description, and forecast of the global hyperspectral imaging market. The market has been further segmented on the basis of geography, which includes regions, such as North America, Europe, Asia, and RoW. Wide applications of the HSI market include food & agriculture, military surveillance, environment monitoring, life sciences & medical diagnostics, colorimetry, meteorology, mining and mineralogy, machine vision, and process control. The report also provides a strategic analysis of key players in the HSI market.

The global HSI market has been estimated at $47.2 Million in 2014, and is expected to reach $83.2 Million by 2019, at a CAGR of 12.0% from 2014 to 2019.

The military surveillance (defence) segment contributed the maximum share with 18.6% in 2015 to the overall market, followed by the environment testing and mining & mineralogy segments. The military surveillance (defence) market is expected to reach $14.0 Million by 2019, at a CAGR of 9.7%. However, the fastest-growing application segment is life science and diagnostics, which is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.7 % from 2014 to 2019.

North America had a maximum share of about 50.8% in 2014 of the global market. The total North American market is estimated to be $24.0 Million in 2014, which is expected to reach a value of $42.9 Million by 2019, growing at a CAGR of 12.3% from 2014 to 2019. The Asian hyperspectral imaging market is expected to witness maximum growth from 2014 to 2019 as it is an open market that with a high growth potential.

Key players in the hyperspectral imaging market are SPECIM Spectral Imaging Ltd. (U.S.), Headwall Photonics Inc. (U.S.), IMEC (Belgium), Norsk Elektro Optikk A/S (Norway), Surface Optics Corp. (U.S.), and Telops (Canada).
