Market Scenario


Military imaging systems are advanced techniques that can capture high-resolution 3-D images from long distances. These imaging systems are better compared to conventional optical systems as they can operate in dark environmental conditions, have improved visibility, and enhance the clarity of objects with the help of infrared light. The driver for this market is increasing the use of these systems for border patrolling and security and the introduction of high definition imaging technologies. The emergence of a variety of radar, optronic, and IR sensors to guide gunfire is expected to improve the effectiveness and accuracy of gunfire. However, there are some disadvantages in the operating performance of the military imaging systems as the efficiency of these imaging systems during extreme weather conditions reduces. Moreover, the increasing difficulty in manufacturing high-resolution cameras and the growing use of smokescreen technologies is expected to restrain the growth of the market. The global military imaging system market is segmented based on type, technology, application, platform, and region. Based on type, the global market has been segmented into thermal, hyperspectral, and multispectral. The thermal segment is expected to hold the largest market share due to the day-night working capability of the imaging systems and their ability to withstand all weather conditions. Based on the platform, the global market has been divided into man-portable and vehicle-mounted. The man-portable segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The report aims to provide an overview of the global military imaging system market with detailed market segmentation by type, technology, application, platform, and region. The global military imaging system market is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period.
