IR camera was initially developed for military applications and this application had contributed to a major chunk of the revenue to the total IR imaging market. For many years, this technology was restricted to military and defense, academia, and narrow niche markets. However, due to developments in uncooled IR imaging technology and availability of affordable IR cameras, the IR imaging market has witnessed a shift in focus towards the applications related to commercial segment. Now, IR cameras have emerged as a new mainstream device for numerous applications such as security, firefighting, surveillance, and industrial imaging. By 2011, security and surveillance, which is the part of commercial application, had become a key market and major IR camera manufacturers like FLIR systems (U.S.), Axis Communications AB (Sweden) started focusing on this market. Continuous reduction in price of LWIR cameras throughout the forecasted period will be one of the strong factors for increasing the penetration of LWIR cameras in fast growing application like security/surveillance and automotive markets.
