Region : Global | Report ID: FBI101784 | Status : Ongoing



Night-vision device is used in low light areas to detect the object. It is an optoelectronic device which creates images with the levels of light approaching total darkness. The night vision device has various applications in industries such as military & defense, law enforcement, hunting,    wildlife observation, surveillance & security, navigation, among others.

The first reason for night vision was to find enemy targets during the night or low light areas.  It is used extensively by the military for monitoring purpose, as well as for navigation, surveillance, and targeting. Police and security frequently utilize both thermal-imaging and image-enhancement technology, especially for surveillance. Law authorization has utilized this to find things that have been covered up by lawbreakers, including money, drugs, and bodies. Likewise, ongoing changes to the area around, for example, dividers can be seen utilizing warm imaging, which has given significant insights in a few cases.

Key Market Driver -

Key Market Driver – • The growing need for crucial equipment’s in wars and boundary conflicted areas for patrolling and combat operations • Its small size, low cost and low power requirement is boosting the demand for night vision goggles

Key Market Restraint -

Key Market Restraint - • Low level of sharpness, unclear images may hinder in the operations

The keen wildlife observer can look for much wildlife during the day, but many animals are more active at night, with night vision devices animals night activities can be observed. Night vision binoculars give the alternative of proceeding with our perceptions after the sun has set furthermore to observe the activity of animals in the night, the opportunity is less to see subtle animals that are less dynamic during the day. When a decent pair of night-vision binoculars are used, one can locate the best spots to spot critters. Light vision devices are likewise conveyed in a marine container, aerial vehicles, and defense ground equipment for navigation and monitoring purposes in low light.

Key Players Covered:

The key players in night vision device market are FLIR Systems Inc. (Armasight), ATN Corporation, BAE Systems, Harris Corporation, Meopta, Newcon Optik, Optix, Sofradir EC, Elbit Systems Ltd., Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL), among others

For instance, Harris Corp. is entering the night vision binocular program for the army’s operations by the end of the year 2021. The Army is moving from monocular to binocular night vision goggles and will utilize the prominent other expert consent to secure them; an industry source said at the SHOT show January 2019. The new framework will combine customary picture squared night vision with a warm sensor, and overlay "enlarged reality" as information and other data, Darrell W. Hackler, ranking executive of worldwide business advancement for night vision at Harris Corp., said in a meeting. The Enhanced Night Vision Goggle-Binocular is the fourth in a progression of updates for the innovation. The initial three were monocular. Harris and ITT Exelis took an interest in the initial two cycles and gave picture cylinders to the third. Harris obtained ITT Exelis in 2015 and acquired its night vision business.
