Segmental Analysis

The MRFR report includes a comprehensive analysis of the market based on phosphor type, generation, end-user, and region.

On the basis of generation, the global image intensifier tube market has been segmented into generation II, generation I, and generation III. In 2018, the generation II segment held a 58.65% share in terms of market value. over the forecast period, the segment is slated to grow at a notable CAGR of 7.35%. Second-generation tubes have become relatively common and are the preferred generation of image intensifier tubes due to their advanced features as compared to the older generation and cost sustainability over the third-generation variations. They are deployed in night vision devices such as handheld nonocular and goggle and binocular configurations. Based on the phosphor type, the market has been bifurcated into green phosphor and white phosphor. The green phosphor segment held a 64.63% market share in 2018, with a market share of USD 535.92 million. It is now projected that the segment will expand at a CAGR of 7.74% during the projection period. As green is a highly visible color to the human eye, most night vision devices have phosphor green as the color of the screen. On the other hand, the green phosphor is likely to be placed by the white phosphor in the future.  On the basis of end-user, the image intensifier tube market has been segmented into healthcare and biotech, military, electronics and semiconductors, and others. In terms of value, the military segment held a 71.74% market share in 2018 and is poised to grow at 8.51% CAGR over the forecast period. Meanwhile, the electronics & semiconductor segment accounts for the second largest market share and is slated to remain highly appealing over the next few years.

Image Intensifier Tube Market Generation Analysis
