Thermal imaging is a method of using infrared radiation and thermal energy to gather information about objects, in order to formulate images of them, even in low visibility environments. It's a type of technology that has built up a broad range of uses over the years. Decades ago, application of thermal imaging technology was highly restricted to defense and military, however, with advancements in technology it is finding new applications in threat detection, veterinary and residential & commercial security. This, in turn, is boosting growth of the thermal imaging market across the globe. Additionally, rising spending by defense and military, especially in developing regions, on up gradation of existing arms is increasing the uptake of thermal imaging technology in the sector. Further, integration of thermal imaging technology in electronic devices is support growth of the market. However, budgetary cuts by defense in developed region are impeding the adoption of thermal imaging cameras. As a result, growth of the thermal imaging market in few developed countries is expected below.

Emerging technology in Defense sector

Tracing the origins of thermal imaging, it's believed to have the beginnings in the Korean War, used for military purposes such as scouting and night combat missions. The use of thermal imaging has expanded far and wide, across different disciplines and for a variety of practical applications. Thermal imaging is a boon to the armed forces such as army, navy and airforce because of its day night working capability and ability to perform well in all weather conditions. They are also being employed in civil aviation for health monitoring of aircrafts.

Uncooled technology accounted for large share

There is a wide requirement of low cost lightweight thermal imaging sensors for both military and civilian applications. In Europe these requirements are met by systems called as large uncooled ferroelectric detector arrays offering accurate performance levels. These requirements were also met by cryogenically cooled systems which were highly expensive however they have more accuracy. The performance of uncooled technology & cooled technology are diverse due to environment factors.

Thermal imaging a boon in Covid-19 crisis

Thermal imaging systems measure the surface skin temperature accurately without being physically close to the person being evaluated. Thermal imaging systems have been used by several countries during pandemic to reduce the spread of disease, by recognizing the temperature. The FDA has issued the Enforcement Policy for Telethermographic Systems during the Coronavirus Disease in 2019 as "Public Health Emergency" guidance to expand the availability of thermal imaging systems and mitigate thermometer shortages during the public health emergency. Thermal imaging systems measured inaccurate temperature results in case of measuring multiple people at the same time. The accuracy of these systems depends on careful set up and operation, as well as proper preparation of the person being evaluated.
