Based on the spectrum, the report categorizes the global inspection cameras market into the following segments:

  • Ultraviolet spectrum
  • Infrared spectrum
  • Visible spectrum

Ultraviolet spectrum

Ultraviolet spectrum inspection cameras are the most popular offering in the global market and is expected to be the fastest-growing segment. The higher efficiency of ultraviolet inspection cameras is driving their quick growth,” says Navin Rajendra, a lead analyst at Technavio for semiconductor equipment research.

There are two ways of using ultraviolet radiation in inspection cameras - reflected ultraviolet and ultraviolet induced fluorescence photography. Reflected ultraviolet is widely used for healthcare, criminology, and theatrical applications. Sunlight is the most abundantly available free UV radiation source and a bright day is rich in ultraviolet radiation.

Infrared spectrum

The global inspection cameras market by infrared spectrum is expected to be worth USD 284.76 million by the end of 2017 and continue to grow quickly over the forecast period. In infrared spectrum inspection cameras, the image sensor used is sensitive to infrared light. An infrared passing filter is usually used to let only the infrared light pass through to the camera and block most of the visible light. The advantage of infrared spectrum cameras over the ultraviolet spectrum cameras is that ultraviolet spectrum inspection cameras require expertise to handle, whereas infrared spectrum inspection cameras are easier to handle.

Visible spectrum

Visible spectrum inspected cameras occupied more than a quarter of the global market in 2016, and is expected retain its shares over the forecast period,” says Navin.

The wavelength of the visible spectrum ranges from 400 nm to 700 nm. Consumers usually buy full spectrum cameras to capture pictures in all the three light spectrums. However, infrared and ultraviolet spectrum cameras are used for specific applications and cannot be used interchangeably with full spectrum cameras.
