Rugged thermal camera is a type of thermo-graphic camera that is mainly used for firefighting.  By rendering the infrared radiation as the visible light, these thermal cameras allow the firefighters to perceive areas of heat through darkness, smoke, snow and heat permeable barriers. These thermal cameras have the capability of distinguishing the temperature variances in the infrared range which can further be converted to electronic signals and can be displayed on the screen. Due to these capabilities the rugged thermal cameras are used in an extensive range of applications such as threat detection, surveillance & security, firefighting and numerous more across various industries comprising the healthcare, automotive and military & defense.

Rugged Thermal Cameras Market: Drivers & Restraints

Rugged thermal cameras are gaining importance in the commercial applications such as personal vision, firefighting, surveillance & security. Moreover, as the scope of the rugged thermal cameras is growing, they are making their way in more customer oriented applications. This growing usage of the rugged thermal cameras for commercial applications and reducing cost are the two major drivers driving the growth of the global rugged thermal cameras market. Also features such as ease of use as a digital camera, performing inspections, measuring temperatures, storing the information and saving time & money are further fueling the thermal cameras market growth.However, the decreasing military & defense spending by major countries such as U.S., Italy, France and Canada are restraining the growth of the rugged thermal cameras market globally.
