Factors such as the growing industrial applications of hyperspectral imaging and increasing funding and investments are driving the growth of the global hyperspectral imaging systems market. However, data storage issues and the high costs associated with the use of hyperspectral imaging are expected to restrain market growth.
On the basis of product, the Hyperspectral Imaging Systems Market is segmented into cameras and accessories. Cameras are expected to command the larger share of the market, by product, in 2019. Technological advancements, the development of affordable hyperspectral imaging cameras, and the increasing adoption of hyperspectral technology for defense and industrial applications are driving the growth of the hyperspectral cameras segment.
Based on technology, the Hyperspectral Imaging Market is segmented into pushbroom (line-scanning), snapshot (single shot), and other technologies [whiskbroom (point-scanning), tunable filters (wavelength scan), and imaging FTIR (time scanning)]. The pushbroom segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the market in 2019, while the snapshot segment is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the advantages offered by snapshot hyperspectral imaging systems, which make this technology most suitable for real-time analysis.
