Mega Data Center Market By Solutions (Storage, Networking, Servers, Security), By Services (Professional, Monitoring, SI), By End User (BFSI, Telecom and IT, Government, Media and Entertainment) – 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 Mn 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 night-time viewing and surveillance. This market is mainly driven by increasing demand for high-speed imaging in various industries. Technological advancements have made image intensifier units more robust and valuable than traditional ones. Based on years of research, scientists have combined image intensifiers with infrared technology to improve 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 broader 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 promotions are fueling the growth of the image intensifier units' market. However, limited operational hours and the increasing use of refurbished devices will likely hinder market growth during the forecast period. 

18 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 have the highest demand. Also, 18 mm image intensifiers are solid and durable, and their photo response is much better than other image intensifiers. However, introducing the 16 mm diameter image intensifier tubes might hamper the market for 18 mm devices as 16 mm image intensifiers are compact and lighter in weight than the devices with 18 mm.

Asia Pacific to Register the Fastest Growth

North America dominates the image intensifier units market by holding the largest market share of around 40% of the global market. North America is the central revenue-generating region as it is one of the most progressive regions concerning adopting advanced technologies. This region has always been ahead in using highly developed 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 increasing 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 solid military base and increasing requirement of advanced devices for safety and improvement of the defense system.
