Thermal Imaging Market [Surveillance (Airborne, Maritime, Land), Threat Detection, Surveys, Automation, Radiology, ITS, Commercial Security, Personal Vision, Firefighting, R & D, Veterinary, Automotive]- Worldwide Market Forecasts (2013 - 2018) adds report Thermal Imaging Market [Surveillance (Airborne, Maritime, Land), Threat Detection, Surveys, Automation, Radiology, ITS, Commercial Security, Personal Vision, Firefighting, R & D, Veterinary, Automotive]- Worldwide Market Forecasts (2013 - 2018) to its store.

The thermal imaging market report constitutes of revenues from hardware, software and services provided via thermal imagers. Overall market size is found by adding up the market size of various components, namely, thermal cameras, sensors and detectors for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), thermal imaging software, and services such as veterinary, residential and commercial building surveys, landfill site investigations, cold storage surveys, electrical surveys and many others.

Though these markets can exist independently, but the playing fields are the same. For example, there are applications in surveillance, threat detection, personal vision, veterinary, surveys, radiology, intelligent transportation systems, predictive maintenance, smart phones or personal vision, automation, automotives and others, for the thermal imaging market.

Among all applications of thermal imaging, surveillance for critical infrastructure protection and military & defense accounts for highest market share during the forecast period.

Few high growth markets are:-

  • Thermal imaging services: surveys for building diagnostics, energy auditing, radiology, veterinary
  • Automotives: Thermal cameras/sensors encapsulated within cars and heavy vehicles
  • Threat detection: Detection of chemical, biological, radiation or explosive threat
  • Automation: predictive maintenance of electrical equipments, mechanical plants, solar panels, data centers

One challenge that may hamper the expected double digit growth of this market is decline in defense budgets. In 2012, the decline in the U.S. defense spending impacted some of the leading thermal imaging companies which had dependence on the U.S. government including FLIR and many others. The 6 percent fall in the U.S. military spending in 2012 resulted in two percentage point fall in the global share. This factor coupled with an indication of reducing the defense budget of emerging economies such as India may act as a restraint against high expected growth rates in the near future.

There are various assumptions also that have been taken into consideration for market sizing and forecasting exercise. A few of the global assumptions include political, economic, social, technological and economic factors. For instance, exchange rates, one of the economic factors, are expected to have moderate rating of impact on this market.

Therefore, dollar fluctuations are expected to not seriously affect the forecasts in the emerging APAC regions.
