Global Enhanced Vision System Market: Overview

Global analysis of the enhanced vision system market has been provided under the scope of this report for the period of 2017-2025. This market has been segmented into system, components, application and geography that are covered within this report. The in-depth analysis of the various factors affecting this market along with challenges posed within this market are also considered here. Enhanced vision encompasses technology which incorporates information from sensors based in aircrafts that displays electronic real-time images of the external surroundings achieved with the application of image sensors. This helps flight crew members and pilot with a sensor-derived enhanced image of the terrain even at extremely low light. These images are formed by monitoring and capturing of infrared energy radiated from objects forming a real-time video image displayed on a dedicated video display screen. Synthetic vision system also provides images showing contrast between different objects only without the help of sensors. All these systems have been great in enhancing the safety related to the aerospace sector and is expected to grow in the next few years as well.  

It is seen that the technological changes applied within aerospace industry has been helpful for passengers as well as the flight crew by providing an enhanced detailing about the terrains and obstacles. The demand for aircraft has grown much faster within developing economies as compared to the developed economies. Moreover the advancements in terms of technological changes within the aerospace industry has a direct impact with the growth of the enhanced vision systems that has acted as a major driver for this market. In addition to this, both active and passive sensors that are used in enhanced vision system has been a major support for the well performing functionalities. Infrared sensors helps pilot to form scene contrast in night vision. It is the sufficient thermal scene contrast that allows shapes and patterns pertaining to a few visual references being recognized by the pilot through infrared image forming another important driver boosting the demand of this market. Considering these drivers, infrared cameras and sensors being used are technologically advanced, expensive and are specially used for this system leading to the price growth of these systems acting as an important restraint for this market. Unlike the external view of pilot, the enhanced vision image can be two-dimensional (2D) display. It is seen that the quality of enhanced vision image as well as the level of enhanced vision sensor performance majorly depends on the atmospheric conditions along with various energy source conditions that can be visible or non-visible. These difficulties related with the functioning of these systems has further posed challenges for the market. It is further expected that combination of synthetic vision and enhanced vision will provide different opportunities for this market.
