Shortwave Infra-Red (SWIR) Camera Market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period of 2018-2025. In 2017, the area camera segment held the highest revenue share in the global SWIR camera market.

Shortwave Infra-Red also called as (SWIR) technology is being used in wide range of application areas. The cameras which use this technology to capture and detect objects or images are called as SWIR cameras. SWIR cameras are capable enough of penetrating through and capture higher contrast images even through haze, mist, rain, fog and challenging atmospheric conditions. SWIR imaging requires unique optical and electronic components capable of performing in the specific SWIR range which is between 0.9 μm to 1.7μm of wavelength, which is not visible to the human eyes as it falls out of the visible spectrum. Hence, the images captured by SWIR cameras are much better when it comes to detailing of objects which are hard to be detected by a usual visible spectrum camera.

Market Dynamics

The rapidly expanding application verticals for SWIR camera is the major factor which is driving the global market growth. SWIR cameras are now experiencing a notable demand from industries such as electronics, agriculture, defense, military, oil & gas, aeronautics and food & beverage industry. The high capability of SWIR cameras in terms of wafer fabrication inspection, glass inspection, chemical process control and oil detection is stimulating the utilization of SWIR cameras in related industry verticals. Moreover, the high demand of SWIR technology as a military and defense tool is also supposed to boost the market growth in the near future. However, the high cost of SWIR cameras and stringent international arms regulations might impede the growth of the very market.
