Hyperspectral Imaging Market size is driven by its increasing applications for research in life sciences and medical diagnostics. It is widely used for advanced medical imaging systems wherein, the analysis is conducted at tissue, cellular, and molecular levels to gather detailed information used for screening, treatment, and diagnosis of various diseases. Furthermore, its rising applications in military surveillance are driving the market as it gives differentiation between man-made materials and natural surrounding and is also used to avoid airborne surveillance by studying the surrounding conditions.
Technological advancements in the design of the sensors and cameras also support the growth of the hyperspectral imaging market. The manufacturing of the compact, lightweight, and low-cost peripheral devices that are used in industrial applications is propelling the market. However, a major hindrance to the growth of market is the relative complexity in analyzing and processing excessive amounts of imaging data gathered using hyperspectral imaging system. Moreover, the high cost of cameras is another challenge for the market growth, which can be overcome by advancements in technologies.
The growing adoption of the UAVs across the countries is also propelling the market growth. The organizations are leveraging on the capabilities of UAVs to obtain hyperscale imaging, monitoring, mapping, and surveillance purposes. The relaxation by the government authorities on the use of the UAVs for commercial purposes is the primary factor backing the market growth.
Agriculture, military surveillance, chemical imaging, environmental monitoring, food and beverages processing, and remote sensing are the major applications of the hyperspectral imaging market. The adoption of the hyperscale imaging in the agriculture sector is estimated to increase substantially during the forecast period. The growth of the market is propelled by the growing adoption of the hyperspectral imaging in acquiring the images of crops for monitoring their development. Furthermore, it is also used to gather information regarding climatic conditions and maintain the health of specific crops.
North America leads the market due to the early adoption of the technology in the region. The research & development activities in the region also support the market growth. In 2016, around USD 27 billion were spent on R&D in medical technology globally, of which around 30% to 35% investments were done by North America. The Asia Pacific is estimated to become the most lucrative market due to the increasing number of manufacturing units in the region. The declining price of the semiconductor devices in the region also drives the market growth.
The prominent vendors in hyperspectral imaging market are Headwall Photonics, Corning, Specim, Spectral Imaging, Resonon, Ximea, Telops, Brandywine photonics, Norsk Elektro Optikk, Applied Spectral Imaging, BaySpec, Imec, Surface Optics, and ChemImage. Product development and innovations are the primary strategies used by the market players to gain the market share and expand the product portfolio. For instance, in January 2018, Imec introduced ‘Snapscan’, the first camera having benefits of line scan (featured with high-speed image quality) and snapshot technologies based on the hyperspectral imaging. In January 2018, Specim introduced ‘Specim IQ’, the new generation portable camera featuring an inbuilt scanner, touch-screen interface, and on-board processing. It is capable of performing various operations in different fields such as food analysis, art analysis, vegetation research, crime investigation, and the health sector.
