Global IR imaging market is expected to witness good growth as it is being accepted across the geographies for various applications. In 2011, the market for North America emerged as the biggest one with respect to IR camera and is expected to stay on the top during the forecasted period. However, our research says that two main IR camera end-user applications in North America; namely commercial and military and defense are relatively mature industries; thus the growth is expected to remain on a lower side. IR cameras have not yet penetrated in geographical regions other than North America, thereby leaving a lot of scope for commercial application to grow. Continuously flourishing economy of China is expected to be the reason for this high growth as it is the second largest economy in the world after the U.S. Apart from automotive applications, oil and gas and commercial applications are also expected to contribute significantly to the total IR imaging market in the APAC.

The overall IR imaging market is divided into two major sub-markets, namely – thermography and vision enhancement applications. FLIR Systems (U.S.) is the only one player operating in both the above-mentioned markets and holds the top rank. It holds nearly 65% of the total market share of IR imaging market and is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecasted period. There is a trend of vertical integration in IR imaging market and nearly all the top players follow the same trend. Companies such as FLIR Systems (U.S.), Axis Communications AB (Sweden), and Samsung Techwin (South Korea) are few of the key players in the global IR Imaging market with regards to commercial vision application; whereas FLIR Systems (U.S.) and Fluke Corporation (U.S.) are the prominent players in global IR Imaging market for thermography application.

For the IR imaging market; development of high speed infrared cameras, rapidly decreasing cost, and continuous development in uncooled microbolometer are acting as drivers. Lack of penetration in geographical regions other than North America and availability of competing technology are acting as restraints. Applications of uncooled IR camera for Remote Sensing and Hyperspectral Imaging will provide opportunities for IR imaging market. Besides, this research reveals that manufacturers whose IR camera meets all the essential criteria required by automotive and security application will lead the market.

Through night-vision application and thermography, IR camera is successfully changing the conventional vision methods into modern techniques. The use of uncooled infrared (IR) cameras have penetrated various applications like surveillance and security, firefighting, medical imaging, and industrial diagnostics. Over the last ten years, the commercial applications have grown significantly as a result of improved vision enhancement capabilities of uncooled IR cameras. Commercial application, especially security and surveillance will remain the strategic market for IR imaging market and many companies will be fighting for larger share of this market. Automotive application will be growing at a swift rate during the forecasted period and it is also expected to be the second largest revenue contributor to IR imaging market after commercial application.

LWIR cameras are the most commonly used ones due to their suitability for thermography and vision enhancement applications, which are the key growth markets within the applications under study. Besides, continuous reduction in price of these cameras throughout the forecasted period will be one of the strong factors for increasing the penetration of LWIR cameras in fast growing applications like security/surveillance and automotive markets. North America leads in terms of revenue generation, with U.S. contributing nearly 70% to the overall market of North America. Two main IR camera end-user applications in North America; namely commercial and military and defense are relatively mature industries; thus the growth is expected to remain on a lower side. The market of APAC offers great potential for IR imaging market with respect to various applications, especially automotive segment.

The value of IR imaging market was $2,183 million in 2011 and is expected to reach $3,861 million in 2017, at an estimated CAGR of 9.5% from 2012 to 2017. In terms of volume, the total number of IR imaging cameras shipped was 318 thousand in 2011 and is expected to reach 1,410 thousand units by 2017, at an estimated CAGR of 28.6% from 2011 to 2017. The rapid growth in market size is due to the success of new technologies in developing new uncooled IR detectors, expanding product and geographical markets, penetration of IR cameras into several end-user application sectors owing to rising demand for thermographic & vision enhancement features in numerous applications.
