Global Shortwave Infrared (SWIR) Camera Market 2017-2021

About Shortwave Infrared (SWIR) Camera

SWIR cameras are used as a standalone device as well as integrated with different devices used in security and surveillance, military, machine vision, photovoltaics, medical, spectroscopy, thermography, telecommunication, and instrumentation. They are used to detect radiation, which is invisible to human eyes, and capture it. SWIR cameras, such as cooled and uncooled cameras, are extensively used in the residential, commercial, military, and industrial manufacturing sectors, because of their low price, lightweight quality, and low-power consumption.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global shortwave infrared (SWIR) camera market to grow at a CAGR of 7.78% during the period 2017-2021.
