Infrared Thermography Market: Overview
Infrared thermography (IT) is a technology used for producing an image of infrared light, which is invisible to naked eyes. Various objects and applications emit infrared waves due to their thermal status. Specialized devices are used to capture images of infrared waves. These devices also help in measuring the temperature of any surface or object within the image for easy interpretation of thermal pattern. Image produced from the infrared devices is called thermograph or thermo gram.
Infrared Thermography Market: Drivers
Increasing demand from the infrastructure industry is the main driver of the infrared thermography market. It is used to test structures for defects. Thermal anomalies, for instance heating during the day and cooling during night are detected with the help of infrared thermography. Developed markets such as Europe and the North America have high demand for infrared thermography to construct energy efficient buildings.
Air leakage and heat loss is detected with the help of infrared thermography, which would save energy to maintain the temperature within the facility. Also, regulations related to safety and environment have forced construction companies to use infrared thermography, increasing its demand further.
Electrical panels and transformers are monitored with the help of infrared light to perform preventive maintenance. Electrical systems are checked for defects such as loose connections, imbalanced circuits and damaged switches to maintain the safety of the premises. However, the regulations related to safety and environment are not followed strictly in the emerging economies such as Asia Pacific and Latin America. These economies have large infrastructural requirements and due to the sluggish implementation of regulations, growth of the infrared thermography market could be thwarted.
Awareness about the benefits of infrared thermography is low in the emerging economies, nonetheless through effective marketing infrared thermography has growth opportunities in these regions. Also, the rapid growth of green building market provides ample opportunities for the infrared thermography market.
Infrared Thermography Market: Segmentation
Infrared thermography market is segmented on the basis of component, building type and application. On the basis of component, infrared thermography market is segmented into hardware and software. Hardware segment is further divided into uncooled IR detectors, IR lens systems and other components.
