By technology, uncooled segment to account for largest market share during forecast period
In this report, the SWIR market, by technology, has been segmented into cooled and uncooled. Among the two, uncooled segment is expected to hold a larger share of the market throughout the forecast period. The dominant position of this segment can be attributed to the high demand for uncooled SWIR cameras owing to their low cost compared with cooled SWIR cameras. Security & surveillance is the major application area for which uncooled SWIR cameras are used in the SWIR market.
By scanning type, line scan segment is expected to grow at highest CAGR during forecast period
The market for line scan SWIR products is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period. The major applications of line scan cameras are in the industrial vertical. SWIR cameras are well suited for applications requiring imaging of fast-moving objects, and their cost is lower than that of area scan cameras, thereby leading to their wide adoption in the industrial vertical. A number of companies in the SWIR market offer line scan SWIR cameras. For example, Xenics (Belgium), under its Lynx line scan camera product range, offers various linear SWIR cameras that are available in 3 line resolutions of 512, 1,024, and 2,048 pixels. The company also offers Xlin-1.7-3000, which is a high-speed 3,000-pixel SWIR line scan InGaAs detector.
North America to account for largest market share during forecast period
North America is expected to account for the largest share of SWIR market during the forecast period. The market in this region is also expected to witness significant growth during 2018–2024. One of the major reasons for the leading position of North America is the presence of several prominent military and defense, scientific research, and medical players in this region that are generating demand for SWIR cameras.
Key Market Players
Key players in the SWIR market include Sensors Unlimited (US), FLIR Systems (US), Xenics (Belgium), New Imaging Technologies (France), Allied Vision Technologies (Germany), Sofradir (France), Raptor Photonics (UK), Hamamatsu Photonics K.K. (Japan), and Opgal Optronic Industries (Israel). Sensors Unlimited is well known for its SWIR imaging solutions and InGaAs technology products.
