Line-scan SWIR technology, by scanning type, is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
Line-scan SWIR technology enables users to see beyond the visible spectrum; it also helps in scanning the object/body line by line, thereby helping in covering the whole area of the object, thus providing an accurate image of the object. Line-scan SWIR detectors are highly used in manufacturing to find out flaws and rectify them before delivery.
Security & surveillance, by application type, is expected to account for the largest market share during the forecast period
SWIR imagers are complimentary to thermal imagers when it comes to vision enhancement and low visibility in poor weather conditions. Imagery in the SWIR technology is similar to visible imagery, in that it senses reflected light; thus, interpretation and scene analysis is better than thermal systems. Thermal imagers have good detection abilities, and such imagers are a good complement to SWIR technology. While thermal imaging can detect the presence of a warm object against a cool background, a SWIR detector can actually identify what that object is (for instance, ships, vehicles, or personnel).
Uncooled SWIR, by technology, is expected to account for the largest market share during the forecast period
In the uncooled SWIR technology, the infrared-detecting elements are contained in a unit that functions at ambient temperature. The common type of thermal imaging devices—uncooled systems—operates quietly and can be activated immediately. The other advantages of uncooled SWIR technology are its long service life and low sensitivity to light exposure, as well as the use of vanadium oxide resistors.
