Acoustic Cameras Market: Introduction

Acoustic camera is used to locate sound sources and characterize them. It includes microphones, also called a microphone array through which, signals are simultaneously composed and treated to form a representation of the location of the sound sources. As part of the assessment process, noise control problems are evaluated through these sensors, and prototype acoustic solutions are quickly supplied for testing commercial, agricultural, and industrial vehicles. This testing procedure is reinforced using advanced noise source identification techniques, which comprises sound intensity equipment and highly effective acoustic camera arrays. This technology combined with specialized techniques provides users with highly targeted solutions for noise problems.

There are several applications of acoustic camera with focus on reducing noise. The camera is frequently useful to improve noise emission from vehicles, such as in cars, airplanes, trains, and others such as wind turbines. Acoustic cameras are not only used to measure the exterior emission of products but also to improve the comfort inside cabins of cars, train or airplanes. There are also hand-held   acoustic cameras used by traffic control and industrial manufacturing departments.

Global Acoustic Cameras Market: Competitive Landscape

According to a news published in June 2019, the U.K. Government stated that vehicles that violate traffic rules and exceed noise level parameters could face penalty. This rule would be implemented after installation of acoustic cameras across the country. These cameras can detect violation of noise level parameters with the help of microphones.

Acoustic Cameras Market: Dynamics

Use of Acoustic Cameras for Traffic Control to Drive Global Market

The Department for Transport in the U.S. is planning to use acoustic cameras for noise detection in various locations. This will help reduce noise pollution on roads. The move will prevent motorists in rural cities from illegally modifying vehicles to amplify the sound. A microphone in an acoustic camera can detect any vehicle that breaches legal noise limits. Higher sounds will trigger the camera to take pictures of the vehicle registration number and any other relevant image. A fine will then be levied on the vehicle owner. These applications are expected to drive the market for acoustic cameras.

High Cost Related to Acoustic Cameras to Hamper Market

The cost for manufacturing acoustic cameras and related equipment is high, which is expected to hamper the global market. Manufacturers, thus, are involved in R&D to provide best solutions since individual acoustic components can contribute to the overall performance of a vehicle. Thus, high cost will directly or indirectly affect the acoustic cameras market.
