Robust demand in a low-visibility environment -

The technology is used to create images of an object in a low-visibility environment based on the information collected by utilizing thermal and infrared radiation. Robust advancement in the technology and its growing incorporation in night vision technologies would drive the thermal imaging market growth. The integration of sensitive heat sensors with thermal imaging cameras or imagers enables these imaging devices to trace minute temperature differences.

Growing penetration of smartphone dongles -

Thermal imaging demand from the handheld/portable camera segment is expected to witness lucrative growth in the approaching years. The availability of popular smartphone dongles at comparatively low cost than the handheld imagers, which are designed for imaging such as FLIR One and SEEK Thermal Compact will induce price competitiveness in the industry. Contrastingly, certain limitations of these thermal imaging cameras in terms of their inability to efficiently function in higher temperatures, water, glass, and others could impede the industry expansion to some extent.

Requirements in automotive diagnostics -

Based on the end-use, use of thermal imaging in automotive diagnostics will grow over the next few years. The product’s integration in automobiles is quite helpful in enhancing airbag system designs, carrying out quality checks on welds and bonds, validating HVAC system efficiencies, and quantifying the thermal impacts of operation on vehicle tires. Prominent automotive companies including Audi, BMW, and Porsche have increasingly adopted thermal imaging technology for several years.

Growing applications in UAVs -

The growing adoption of the product in the automotive and military sectors is expected to complement the thermal imaging market share in the upcoming years. The incorporation of advanced cameras in UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) that are used in several military operations will boost product demand to increase UAVs’ operational limits. Also, the technology efficiently aids aircraft to easily navigate through dark surroundings and identify the target even in adverse weather conditions.
