Global GigE camera market for military and defense application

The military and defense segment is one of the oldest application segments of the global GigE camera market. The segment uses GigE cameras as virtual electronic eyes to keep a check on enemy lines without human supervision. The military vision of GigE cameras requires a sophisticated network of cameras, sensors, computers, and software. The expectancy from GigE cameras is increasing rapidly. They are used for quick and accurate decision making without compromising on the sophistication of the analysis. In addition, the nature of purchase in the segment is B2B, which presents budgeting constraints.

Ujjwal Doshi, a lead consumer electronics research analyst at Technavio, says, “The military and defense sectors require small-sized and lightweight cameras with good-quality military-grade performance. This is the major factor for CMOS sensor GigE cameras being predominantly used in the segment.”

Global GigE camera market for industrial application

“GigE cameras have numerous industrial applications, such as factory automation, food and packaging inspection, electronics manufacturing, and other machine vision applications. Therefore, these cameras should have a flexible mechanical design, support industry standard protocol, and be compatible with third-party peripherals,” says Ujjwal.

Some of the prominent industries where GigE cameras are used include automotive, pharmaceuticals, mining, robotics, and design and integration. In these application areas, cameras are required to face shocks and vibrations, extreme temperatures, and long-time operational durability. GigE cameras' resistance to high industrial environments makes them ideal for varied industrial applications.

Global GigE camera market for commercial application

The commercial segment is the fastest growing segment of the market due to increased adoption of GigE cameras for security and surveillance. The segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 11% during the forecast period. An increasing number of commercial stores in developed countries such as the US, the UK, Germany, and Japan are deploying GigE cameras for security applications.

Another major application of GigE cameras in the segment is in traffic surveillance and process monitoring installation, which require real-time viewing. These cameras are also used for image storage and post-processing analysis such as automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) and automatic license plate recognition (ALPR). These high alert assignments require a high-speed camera that can transfer uncompressed video and MPEG images over the high-definition serial digital interface (HD-SDI).

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • Teledyne DALSA
  • Allied Vision
  • JAI
  • Point Grey Research
