The global image intensifier market is expected to reach USD 1,320 million by 2024 from USD 912 million in 2019—at a CAGR of 7.66% during 2019–2024. Image intensifiers are extensively used for increasing illumination of weak light in various applications. The increasing military expenditure worldwide and the growing demand for medical diagnostic systems with better visibility play a significant role in the growth of the image intensifier market. Multiple soldier modernization programs being carried out across the globe are leading to the growth of the image intensifier market for the defense and surveillance sector.
Defense and surveillance is the most dominating segment, and it held the largest market share in 2018. In the past, army forces all over the world were incapable of fighting at night due to various reasons, including the lack of quality on-time intelligence and difficulty in establishing communications. As a result, they witnessed a low rate of success with night-time combat operations. Image intensifier-integrated devices were introduced primarily to overcome these challenges.
