Image Intensifier Units Market By Diameter (18 mm, 25 mm, 40 mm, 75 mm, 150 mm), By Application (Bioluminescence, Combustion, LIBS, PIV, LIF), By End User (Military, Healthcare, Consumer electronics, Industrial) – Growth, Future Prospects and Competitive Analysis, 2019 - 2027

Increasing Demand for High-Speed Imaging is Primarily Driving the Image Intensifier Units Market.

Globally, the Image Intensifier Units Market is expected to grow with a CAGR of more than 4.9% during the forecast period from 2019 to 2027, starting from US$ 850.0 million in 2018. Image intensifiers are devices used to recognize images and objects with the help of a camera in low light. These devices comprise a vacuum tube with numerous multiplication and conversion screens. Initially, image intensifiers were developed for nighttime viewing and surveillance. This market is mainly driven by the increasing demand for high-speed imaging in various industries.

Technological advancements have made image intensifier units more robust and useful compared to traditional ones. Based on years of research, scientists have combined image intensifiers with infrared technology to offer improved vision in any light condition. These enhanced capabilities have expanded the application of these units in military operations. 

The U.S. Army uses these tools from a few select units to a wider soldier population. Additional advancements focus on digital displays that will enable users to pass and receive information to and from other sensors on the battlefield. Such advancements are fueling the growth of the market for image intensifier units. However, limited operational hours and the increasing use of refurbished devices are likely to hinder the market growth during the forecast period.

Market Synopsis

18 to 33 image intensifiers are expected to dominate the market during the forecast period.

During the forecast period, the 18 mm image intensifier units are expected to drive the market with the highest CAGR. This growth is mainly attributed to factors such as the reliability and quality of these devices. These devices are highly used in military and defense surveillance, hence their high demand. Also, 18-mm image intensifiers are strong and durable, and their photo response is much better than other categories of image intensifiers. However, the introduction of 16-mm-diameter image intensifier tubes might hamper the market for 18-mm devices, as 16-mm image intensifiers are more compact and lighter in weight than devices with 18-mm devices.

Asia Pacific to Register the Fastest Growth

North America dominates the image intensifier unit market, holding the largest market share of around 40% of the global image intensifier unit market. North America is the major revenue-generating region, as it is one of the most progressive regions with regard to the adoption of advanced technologies.

This region has always been ahead in order to use highly progressive image intensifiers to safeguard the defense forces of this region. This region experienced significant growth during the forecast period based on the rising need to tackle the increasing number of terrorist activities.

Moreover, increasing research and development activities and security concerns in this region also enhance the demand for image intensifiers in North America. Europe and Asia-Pacific also hold a significant market share based on their strong military bases and the increasing requirement for advanced devices for safety and the improvement of the defense system.
