Global Hyperspectral Imaging Market
Hyperspectral Imaging Market
The market was accounted for USD 51.4 million in 2015. The market is projected to reach USD 90 million by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 9.80% during the forecast period. The aim of hyperspectral imaging is to identify and collect the spectrum for each pixel in the image of the scene. This imaging is performed to detect various objects and materials. Hyperspectral imaging is a combination of different spectral methods such as near infrared, fluorescence imaging, etc. This kind of imaging is dependent on the principle of spectral based contrast. The reflected light creates the spectral based contrast, which is then analysed.
The rapid technological advancement and success in deciphering applications across varied areas, from healthcare to military surveillance, are the primary factors propelling the growth of the market. Hyperspectral imaging has been adopted in different medical procedures related to the gastrointestinal tract, mucosal membrane, ophthalmology, vascular systems, surface tissue and other medical processes. However, lack of skilled technicians and lack of awareness are primary factors turning out to be constraints for the growth of the market.
The market has been segmented by application and geography. The applications segment has been subdivided into:
Colorimetry & Chemical Imaging
Life Sciences and Medical Diagnostics
Mining & Mineralogy
Physics & Astronomy
The usage in military surveillance has been the highest and has contributed to the largest market share of nearly 21% in 2015. Application in the mining, mineralogy, and meteorological segments have also contributed majorly to the market. Application in healthcare, especially in diagnostics, is also increasing rapidly. The life sciences also find varied applications for hyperspectral imaging. The hyperspectral imaging market for life sciences is expected to grow at the highest CAGR, during the forecast period.
Geographically, the market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the world. The segment on North America has been further divided into the USA, Canada, and Mexico. The European region has been subdivided into Germany, the UK, France, Spain, Italy and the Rest of Europe. The Asia-Pacific region has been further segmented into China, Japan, India, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand and the Rest of Asia-Pacific. The North American region accounted for the largest market share of 49.8% in 2015. The Asia-Pacific & Europe markets are expected to grow at a high CAGR while compared to North America, during the forecast period.
