Global Military Imaging System Market Overview


Military imaging system market Size was valued at USD 3.36 billion in 2022. The Military imaging system market is projected to grow to USD 7.06 billion by 2032, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.6% during the forecast period (2024 - 2032). 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 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.

Recent Development



  • L3Harris Technologies has developed a new hyperspectral imaging system called the Viper that can be mounted on drones or aircraft. Viper can be used to identify targets at long range and in low-light conditions.

  • Raytheon has developed a new quantum imaging system called the QureOS that can see through fog and smoke. QureOS is still in the early stages of development, but it has the potential to be a game-changer for military surveillance.

  • Northrop Grumman is using AI to develop new image analysis tools that can help military analysts identify targets and track the movement of troops and vehicles.
