Thermal camera market to reach $500 million by 2019

July 2015 News

A new report by IHS estimates that the world market for uncooled thermal cameras in commercial security applications was worth $245.0 million in 2014, and will grow to nearly $500 million in 2019. IHS expects that within the next 12 months the market will start to shift away from 17 micron sensors, to smaller pixel pitch sensors. This is expected to have significant implications on the price of thermal cameras.

IHS expects that price declines, and the release of lower-end entry level products will allow thermal cameras to gain traction in commercial markets that have traditionally been unable to justify the high prices associated with thermal cameras.

Other key findings of the report include:

• Driven by both the use of smaller pixel pitch sensors, and the expected growth in entry-level products, IHS forecasts a shift towards smaller focal lens sizes.

• IHS expects a split in the market away from QVGA resolution, and towards VGA and QQQVGA array formats. In an effort to differentiate themselves suppliers will focus on either the high-end of the market, or the low-end.

• Due to larger operational budgets and a measurable return on investment IHS expects significant growth of the radiometric camera market. Generally used for preventative maintenance, the concept of the radiometric camera is appealing to camera suppliers and end-users. IHS is aware of some leading manufacturers that have confirmed they will be releasing radiometric cameras within the next 18 months.
