The global infrared imaging technology market estimated at US$5.4 billion in 2022, is expected to reach a revised size of 7 billion US dollars by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 6.3% over the analysis period.

Uncooled, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is expected to register a CAGR of 6.6% and reach US$4.9 billion at the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and the induced economic crisis, the growth of the Chilled segment is readjusted to a revised CAGR of 5.7% for the next 7-year period. By technology, the uncooled segment is expected to dominate market growth, driven by strong demand for uncooled infrared imaging cameras in security and surveillance applications.

The low manufacturing cost of sensors for uncooled IR cameras, as they require cheaper vacuum packaging, is expected to drive the demand for uncooled IR imaging products. Another advantage is that uncooled cameras consume less power and fewer moving parts and therefore have a much longer lifespan and will operate continuously for years without maintenance.

The US market is estimated at $2.4 billion in 2022, when China is expected to reach $603 million by 2026

The infrared imaging technology market in the United States is estimated at US$2.4 billion in the year 2022. Chinathe second largest economy in the world, is expected to reach a projected market size of US$603 million by 2026 with a CAGR of 7.7% over the analysis period. Other notable geographic markets include Japan and Canada, each predicting growth of 5.6% and 5.9% respectively over the analysis period. In Europe, Germany is expected to grow at around 6.1% CAGR.

The market is predicted to witness strong growth opportunities driven by growing demand from the non-industrial sector, growing adoption of new end-use applications, technological advancements in infrared imaging technology, growing adoption of security applications and surveillance, the increasing availability of reasonably priced infrared cameras. .

Additionally, the growing demand for infrared imaging cameras in emerging economies and the high penetration of SWIR cameras are poised to open up new growth avenues in the coming years. The increasing use of infrared cameras in quality control and inspections and their steady adoption in the consumer electronics market also present untapped growth opportunities. IR imaging can be used both as a predictive and preventive tool, which makes it very diverse.

However, the high cost of infrared imaging systems compared to substitute technologies, stringent import and export regulations, and lack of technology awareness are hampering the market prospects. SWIR cameras are expensive due to the use of expensive semiconductor materials such as indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) sensors in their formulation.

By application, security and surveillance segment to be achieved $4.1 billion by 2026

Global Security and Surveillance Market by Application Segment is estimated at US$3.2 billion in 2022, and should reach US$4.1 billion by 2026 reflecting a compound annual growth rate of 6.1% over the analysis period. United States constitutes the largest regional market for the security and surveillance segment, accounting for 42.8% of global sales. China is poised to record the fastest compound annual growth rate of 7.6% over the analysis period, reaching US$417.6 million at the end of the analysis period.
