Binoculars are also known as field glasses. Binoculars have two telescopes installed side by side. The two telescopes are aligned so as to provide the same viewing direction. Binoculars are often used to view distant objects. They may vary in size based on design and application. Binoculars are designed to offer a three dimensional image unlike a monocular telescope. Magnification lens and prism are the two main accessories in binoculars. Magnification lenses help in viewing the object, and the prism helps in presenting the object in the right side up and correct direction. Without the prism, the object would look backward and upside down. Binoculars come in two basic designs: roof prisms binoculars and porro prism binoculars. Porro prism binoculars offer better image stabilization with less powerful lens as compared to roof prism binoculars. Size and design of a hunting binocular may vary depending on type of hunting and distance considered in the hunting process. Demand for hunting binoculars may vary based on magnification power, objective lens size, waterproofing features, weight, eye relief quality, lens quality and coating, image brightness, field of view, stability, and budget. In the coming years, Asia Pacific is anticipated to garner major share of the hunting binocular market.

The primarily factors driving the growth of the global hunting binocular market is growing demand for hunting binoculars equipped with waterproof, fog proof, anti-reflective lenses, eco glass prism, and long eye relief technology. Furthermore, growth in the sports industry is the other factor that is likely to drive the hunting binocular market. Key drivers that have boosted the popularity of hunting binoculars include increased demand for adventure and entertainment, sports & leisure activities, good quality raw materials, and rise in spending power of the population. In addition, increase in demand for quality binoculars in the defense sector is anticipated to propel the market. However, concerns about quality of hunting binocular due to large number of local and regional players in the market is projected to restrain the hunting binocular market. Moreover, in many regions, governments have implemented strict rules and regulations about animal hunting. This is expected to hamper the growth of the hunting binocular market. Nevertheless, a rise in demand for customized binoculars and rising disposable income are expected to create significant opportunities for the global hunting binocular market.
