Recently, the international famous market research company Yole Developpement released the latest edition of the 2020 thermal imager and thermal detector report, focusing on the global thermal imaging market output, market share, technology status and future development trends. Throughout the full text of the report, Chinese manufacturers who master infrared core technology are rising strongly and taking advantage of the situation to reshape the new pattern of the global infrared industry.
Yole：2020 global thermal imaging market share FLIR ranked first
Looking at the global civil infrared market in 2020, Chinese manufacturers are changing the global infrared industry competition pattern, which has also been verified in the Yole research report.
Yole research report shows that in 2020, the U.S. FLIR market share of 35% of the global infrared thermal imaging machine shipments, the second is the Chinese manufacturer Guide infrared, market share 17%, but also the market share of the first Chinese thermal imaging manufacturers. Among the top 10 in the world, Chinese manufacturers occupy four seats, namely Guide Infrared, HIK Vision, IRAY and Dali Technology.
2020 is no longer a year for overseas giants to occupy a strong share. The market share of several major Chinese thermal imaging manufacturers has reached 44%, almost half of the global infrared thermal imaging machine shipments in 2020. Not only to solve the huge demand for domestic thermal imaging systems, but also to expand to the world, strong momentum of development.
Yole： forecast 2025, infrared thermal imaging market or more than $7.5 billion
With China's thermal imaging manufacturers in product development and technological innovation, its global market share will continue to expand steadily. Yole research report shows that the global market share of China's infrared thermal imager in 2020 has reached 44%, up 29% from 2019. such a high growth has led Yole to come up with new predictions: by 2025, china infrared thermal imager will have a 64% share of the global infrared market, or will create a 2025 that belongs to "made in china.
At the same time, the Yole also left room for readers to think, as Chinese manufacturers catch up, the momentum of development is strong, there will be the result of the traditional game "bean eaters ": catch up with and gradually" eat "the share of other competitors...... This is a bold prediction about the possibility of the future, everything is possible.
When it comes to the global thermal imaging market, there is another important data to mention. Yole report points out that the global thermal imaging market will grow at an average annual compound growth rate of 8% between 2019 and 2025, with a market value of about $7.5 billion by 2025. In the face of such a huge infrared market cake, the domestic infrared thermal imaging leading enterprises led by Guide infrared, can we seize the 2025" China infrared core "development dividend bend overtaking? We'll see.
Why can China's infrared manufacturers rise rapidly and even catch up
In 2020, the new crown outbreak, thermal imaging automatic temperature measurement technology has become an important scientific and technological means to resist the virus, so that infrared thermal imaging technology has been widely used and popularized, and began to create more application scenarios after the epidemic. The rise of Chinese manufacturers is due to the importance and rapid response to the prevention and control of the new crown epidemic, but also from many years ago we successfully tackle China's infrared "core ".
China's infrared rise is not a smooth path. Infrared technology is the core technology of national defense. For a long time, Europe and the United States and other countries have adopted a strict technical blockade on China, and high-end infrared thermal imaging sensors are prohibited from being exported to China. In order to "the core key technology is not under the control of others ", from the state to the private enterprises, they can not wait to catch up with each other and embark on the development road of independently developing domestic infrared chips.
Nowadays, the domestic Guide infrared and other latecomers are in the forefront, the reason is closely related to the domestic excellent innovation environment and the independent exploration of enterprises.
1. domestic environment advocating independent innovation of science and technology
2. the unremitting exploration of domestic manufacturers, detectors are not controlled by others, but more than Western manufacturers
