Portable Thermal Imagers Market, by Technology (Cooled and Uncooled), by Application (Detection & Measurement, Monitoring & Inspection, Personal Vision Systems, Search & Rescue, Security & Surveillance, and Others), by End-use Industry (Defense, Public Safety, Industrial (Oil and Gas, Utility, etc.), Healthcare, and Others), and by Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa) - Size, Share, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2019 - 2027
Portable thermal imager is a device, which captures and creates an image of a targeted object by using infrared radiation emitted from the object and this process is called thermal imaging. Portable thermal imager is also known as thermo-graphic camera, infrared camera or thermal imaging camera. Thermal imager is of two types, cooled type and non-cooled type. Thermal imagers are mainly used in defense, public safety, industrial (oil and gas, utility, etc.), healthcare, and others. Thermal imagers are used for border security to restrain cross border activities and illegal immigrations. It is also used in search and rescue operations, as these operations are difficult to be carried out at low visibility conditions. Portable thermal imagers are used to locate the target in such cases.
Portable thermal imagers are used in ship and airplane guidance system. In aviation industry, it is used to prevent accidents caused due to low visibility and help to fly in low light and night conditions. Apart from aviation, portable thermal imagers are also used in autonomous car industry. Autonomous cars are integrated with various sensors and camera for inputs such as road condition and animal or human presence on the road. This input is then transferred to computer to take real-time decision to drive. Portable thermal imagers are used to obtain a 360° view of road condition when regular vehicle is in autonomous mode. When camera fails to provide the data due to low visibility condition, thermal imagers are used to detect human presence on road. Therefore, portable thermal imagers are extensively used in vehicles. These factors are expected to drive growth of the global portable thermal imagers market over the forecast period.
However, high initial cost and stiff competition among key players are expected to hamper growth of the portable thermal imagers market over the forecast period.
The global portable thermal imagers market is segmented on the basis of technology, application, end-use industry, and region. On the basis of technology, the market is segmented into cooled and uncooled. On the basis of application, the market is segmented into detection & measurement, monitoring & inspection, personal vision systems, search & rescue, security & surveillance, and others. On the basis of end-use industry, the market is segmented into defense, public safety, industrial (oil and gas, utility, etc.), healthcare, and others. On the basis of region, the market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa.
