Product penetration in the residential sector has increased considerably owing to low IR camera market price trend in this sector. In addition, high demand across several industries including healthcare and screening, food service and distribution, automotive, veterinary science, maritime vessel inspections and aircraft inspection are likely to offer potential opportunities over the forecast timeframe. High investment coupled with availability of cost effective devices due to mass production is expected to augment growth.

Development of microbolometer, a detector based on micro-electromechanical (MEMS) technology has led to increasing commercialization of thermal imagers, which in turn has spurred IR camera market growth. Growing horizontal adoption, low environmental impact and availability of low cost products are further expected to propel demand.

Decline in military and defense budget by countries such as Canada, U.S., France and Italy may pose a challenge to industry participants.
