Thermal Imaging Market 2020: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment, Forecast to 2023

Global Thermal Imaging Market expected to be worth US $ 3.96 bn due to growing demand for professional surveillance

Thermal imaging is a technique that improves the improves the visibility and clarity of objects in a dark environment by detecting them using infrared radiation and creating an image based on that information. Market Research Future (MRFR) has published a research report about the global thermal imaging market that foresees gains for this market at 7% CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) during the forecast period between 2018 and 2023. By value, the market has been figured to be worth the US $ 3.96 bn by the end of the forecast period.

The key market drivers for thermal imaging include growing demand for professional surveillance, high investment in infrastructure development, and the need for security applications across public and private sectors. However, the additional detailing required for longwave infrared cameras in thermal imaging and  export restrictions can hinder the market growth.
