Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Over the five years to 2016, conditions dimmed for the Night Vision Equipment Manufacturing industry. The longer term impact of the recession eventually strained local and state government budgets, with governments having to cut spending on law enforcement to balance their rising deficits. Moreover, greater federal budget deficit concerns and the withdrawal of troops from the Middle East caused federal funding for defense to contract. Consequently, demand for industry products plunged from previously abnormal levels. Therefore, in the five years to 2016, industry revenue is expected to decline. The industry is projected to stabilize over the next five years, as defense and homeland security budgets bottom out... ... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry Products Chapter

Infrared systems

Night vision devices and components based on infrared technology accounts for 65.4% of industry revenue. Devices in this category use various sensors and chemicals to detect infrared radiation and convert it into visible light. Thermal imaging devices are also included in this product category. Thermal imaging devices usually detect radiation in the long-infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum and produce images of that radiation. Since all objects with a temperature above absolute zero generate infrared radiation, thermal imaging devices do not require visible illumination.

Light amplification systems

Light amplification devices and related components such as image intensifier tubes account for an estimated 34.6% o.. ... purchase to read more
