Europe is one of the world's most technologically advanced regions. The region has big military spenders like UK, France, and Italy. Many countries in this region were a part of the NATO forces that was involved in the war in Afghanistan and Iraq. Technological innovations like thermal imaging were used extensively and are still used in harsh terrains like the ones found in Afghanistan.
We are living in an ever evolving world. New technologies are being developed, while old ones are being relegated. The changing consumer preferences and innovations are increasing. The line which used to separate different industries is becoming blurred with technology being modified for different entities across the industries.
Internet, radar and jet engines were some of the technological innovations created specifically for the military. But, the same technologies are now being used for commercial or personal purposes.
Thermal imaging is one such technology which found its origin in military applications and is now being used across different industry verticals. Thermal imaging is changing the world with the applications ranging from military to personal handheld cameras and smartphones. Though it has multiple uses, some of the uses related to saving lives have been game changers. These systems have now become compact and are easy to use and generate high-resolution images. With some of the major players like Flir, Bae Systems, L-3 Communications are already present in the thermal imaging systems market. New startups like Bounce Imaging are challenging the existing players with their innovative products.
Companies such as Flir and Vummi have introduced smartphones with thermal imaging capability. Day is not far when this technology will be in use everywhere with handheld devices taking over complex thermal imaging systems.
The factors driving the thermal imaging systems market are:
Low cost of solutions
Increasing usage across the industries
Its low impact on the environment.
Integrating the thermal imaging technology with the smartphones is also a major contributor to this market given the growing smartphones market.
The declining cost of solutions and users demanding cheaper products
The market is heading towards extensive competition on price.
Companies are striving hard to introduce low cost devices with maximum features.
The other factors restraining this market are the declining military market as its applications are mostly prominent in the military market and the lack of regular support services might also hinder the progress of the thermal imaging systems market.
