Image Intensifier Market by Diameter, (<18 mm, 18 mm, 25 mm, 6 inch, 9 inch, 12 inch, 16 inch), Application (cameras, scopes, googles, x-ray detectors), Vertical (Defense and Surveillance, Medical, Industrial), Geography - Global Forecast to 2024
“Image intensifier market to grow at 8.24% CAGR from 2018 to 2024”
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%. 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. Low operational hours of image intensifier devices and increasing use of refurbished devices restrain the growth of this market. Further, the advantages of flat-panel detectors over image intensifiers pose a major challenge for the growth of the market players.
“X-ray detectors to hold largest share of image intensifier market during forecast period”
The image intensifiers are widely used in X-ray detectors and are cheaper than advanced flat-panel systems. Moreover, the repair and maintenance cost of image intensifier C-arms embedded in X-ray detectors is lower than the flat panel display (FPD) C-arms. Moreover, this cost can be typically five-times less than their technologically advanced counterparts. Low price and maintenance cost of these C-arms is driving the growth of the market for the image intensifiers meant for X-ray detectors.
“<18-mm image intensifier market to grow at highest CAGR from 2018 to 2023”
The image intensifiers with 18 mm diameter dominate the market for defense and surveillance sector. However, with the introduction of the image intensifier tubes with 16 mm diameter, the adoption for 16-mm image intensifiers has increased as they are compact and lighter in weight than the devices with 18 mm diameter.
“APAC to witness highest growth in overall market during forecast period”
The highest CAGR of the market in APAC is attributed to the increased investments in the development of new and advanced equipment integrated with image intensifiers by countries such as China and India to strengthen their defense capabilities and ensure better homeland security. Moreover, the increasing incidences of cross-border conflicts in many countries of this region are also leading to the increased procurement of image intensifiers. As a result, the market for image intensifier is quite competitive in APAC.
