Thermal Camera Market Synopsis

Thermal Camera Market was valued at USD 6.85 Billion in 2018; it is expected to reach USD 13.78 Billion by the end of the forecast period at a CAGR of 10.8%. The scope of the thermal camera market study includes the market size analysis and a detailed analysis of the manufacturer’s products, recent developments, vendor landscape, competitive benchmarking and strategies.

Technological advancements across industry verticals have led the manufacturers to reduce the size of semiconductor components, which has resulted in a reduction in the overall device size. Miniaturization increases the proximity of electronic components within a device, which limits the heat transfer and increases the overall temperature of the device. The need for compact electronic components in the automobile industry, consumer electronics, healthcare, and aerospace & defense due to miniaturization is expected to increase the need for efficient heat management solutions and thus the need for thermal cameras. This study on the thermal camera market provides detailed information about the trends and dynamics, market size, competitive landscape, and growth opportunities.

Thermal cameras are the devices that help in monitoring and recording temperatures produced by devices in electrical enclosures. Thermal camera designers have to align the manufactured product in terms of technologies used in the thermal management system. The latest technologies in the thermal management arena function in and around the basic heat transfer modes, i.e., conduction, convection, and radiation. With the rapid development of advanced cooling technologies, it has become easier to maintain reliability and hence prevent premature failure. Thermal cameras have primary applications in high-power military systems, building inspection, and fault detection and diagnostics, and in the fields of medicine and astronomy.
