Also, large enterprises are increasingly installing mounted cameras enabled with night vision features to monitor their facilities.

By Type Analysis

the scope devices segment accounted for the largest market share in 2020 and was valued at USD 2.56 billion. The demand for scopes is relatively higher than goggles as they offer better performance. Scopes are mainly used as weapon sights despite the fact that they are large and heavier than goggles. In addition, this product can be used for navigation as well as scouting purposes.

The camera segment accounted for a substantial market share in 2020 and is expected to register a steady CAGR over the forecast period. The growth of the camera segment is attributed to lower purchasing and maintenance costs. Moreover, cameras are more flexible, lightweight, and are detachable.

By Technology Analysis

Based on technology, the market can be segmented into image intensifiers, thermal imaging, and others. Thermal imaging accounted for the largest market share and was valued at USD 3.27 billion in 2020. There are two types of thermal imaging devices, namely, uncooled and cryogenically-cooled. 

The image intensifier is expected to be the fastest-growing segment owing to the high popularity and significance of devices based on the technology. These devices are categorized by a generation with each significant change in night vision technology giving rise to a new generation of devices.

By Application Analysis

the defense segment accounted for the largest share of the market in 2020 and is expected to expand at a significant CAGR over the forecast period. The notable rise in military activities at nights and during conditions with poor visibility has led to a significant rise in demand.

the wildlife conservation application stood as the second-largest segment owing to the rise in night safaris and wildlife research activities. Funding provided by governments to carry out wildlife research has enabled researchers to employ advanced products.

By Regional Analysis

 North America led in 2020 owing to the extensive usage of products in the U.S. army. In addition, intensive R&D activities undertaken for devising advanced devices contribute to the promising development of the regional market.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth, attributed to the rise in border disputes, extensive rise in expenditure on weapons and devices in the defense sector, and a notable rise in demand from the commercial sector.
