An image intensifier can be defined as a device which is being used to identify images and objects with human eyes or can be detected by a camera at extremely low level light. An image intensifier consists of a vacuum tube with several conversion and multiplication screens. Image intensifiers were primarily developed for nighttime viewing and surveillance under moonlight or starlight. An image-intensifier system works by collecting photons through an objective lens, converting them to electrons via a photocathode, increasing the electrical energy with a microchannel plate (MCP), converting the electrical energy back to light using a phosphor screen and presenting the image for viewing through an eyepiece lens.
Image intensifiers offers multiple applications for different industry verticals which includes military, healthcare, consumer electronics etc. which results in increasing demand from manufacturers and this in turn propelling the global market growth during the research study. In military sector the image intensifiers are integrated with different equipment such as weapon aiming applications, rescue vehicles etc. With the increasing research and development activities and security concern in military sector demand for image intensifiers is being increased and this in turn increasing the growth of global market. Furthermore, the image intensifiers are used in different scientific and industrial applications owing to their features which includes unique high speed gating capabilities, high sensitivity, high resolution, high contrast, low noise. This results in increasing growth scale of global image intensifier market during the forecast period. Image intensifiers are primarily used in night vision goggles and today’s youth is getting attracted towards these goggles which is propelling the growth of global image intensifiers market at a significant rate during the research study.
