A thermal scanner or infrared thermal imager is a kind of equipment for photosensitive imaging of infrared rays emitted by objects. The thermal scanner is widely used in military, fire, medical, industrial production, customs inspection, and other fields for monitoring and suspecting purposes.
The Benelux thermal scanner market has the potential to grow with historical CAGR in the forecast period from 2020-2027. The factors that are driving the market demand of the Benelux thermal scanner are the emerging need for security monitoring, structural monitoring of building, detect of coronavirus, propelling healthcare infrastructure, and advanced technology of thermal scanner.
Under the continuous impact of the epidemic, the demand for AI infrared thermal imaging scanners has surged across the region. Communities, schools, shopping malls, and other crowded places all require body temperature screening, which has dramatically increased the market demand for AI infrared thermal scanner in the Benelux market.
Moreover, in the future, with the advancement of artificial intelligence, thermal scanner in Benelux products as standard, and schools, and enterprises. It will also monitor the temperature measurement and make them into a large data center for statistical analysis and optimization of parameters to provide a scientific data basis.
Also, the demand for the thermal scanner is emerging with current epidemic prevention and control work. The detection of body temperature in public places is already the primary means of preventing epidemic situations. The advantage of a thermal scanner is an intuitive, non-contact, rapid response, automatic alarm, and 24-hour uninterrupted work. It can display through different colors on the screen and directly determine the hot spot.
Furthermore, from a technical point of view, the addition of AI technology to the thermal scanner is mainly in the identification and tracking of portraits. It helps in accurately positioning each face in the camera picture and then combining the infrared temperature dot matrix to calculate the face (mostly for forehead) temperature.
The infrared thermal scanner system has multi-point, regional, and thermal tomography inspection functions. By comprehensively inspecting the cellular metabolic thermal radiation data of different depths of various tissues and organs of the whole body helps in fully understanding the health status of the body.
The infrared thermal scanner is getting an inevitable part of the security monitoring system. It is mainly used in a crowded and busy place such as airports, bus stations, etc., for inspection and early monitoring of security incidents. The thermal scanner can easily, quickly, and accurately detect heat-generating objects such as fire source by sensing infrared radiation and notify security to control suspicious object.
Based on type, the Benelux thermal scanner market categorized into Fixed, Portable. The fixed equipment segment is capturing the largest market share in the Benelux thermal scanner market. It is mainly due to the increasing use of a fixed thermal scanner in commercial and industrial purposes. Moreover, with the recent outbreak of corona, Benelux countries require to deploy fixed thermal scanner in train stations, airports, and crowded areas such as commercial buildings that are proliferating.
Based on wavelength, the Benelux thermal scanner market classified into LWIR, MWIR, SWIR. Longwave infrared segment will dominate the largest share in the Benelux thermal scanner market. It is mainly owing to the emerging demand for LWIR in the market for detection and measurement programs. Moreover, the bolstering use of LWIR in automobiles, food, and beverages, civil infrastructure, medical care, and also for inspection. Thus, LWIR is propelling the highest market share of the Benelux thermal scanner.
Based on the application, the Benelux thermal scanner market segmented into Thermography, Security & Surveillance, Search & Rescue. Thermography will propel the market share for the Benelux thermal scanner in the forecast period. It is mainly owing to the emerging demand for monitoring buildings’ structural health and majorly used in the airport. It is also used to detect the human body temperature and bolstering its growth with the widespread of coronavirus.
Based on vertical, the Benelux thermal scanner market classified into Industrial, Commercial, Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, Healthcare. The aerospace and defense segment dominates the demand of the Benelux thermal scanner. The thermal scanner helps in identify soldiers, target enemy, and helps in locating as well. In addition to it, they used in the border for low enforcement, ship collision, also used for monitoring the health structure of aircraft. Thermal scanners can also work in extreme conditions; thus, Benelux countries are propelling their demand in the thermal scanner market.
Based on technology, the Benelux thermal scanner market bifurcated into Cooled, Uncooled. uncooled technology segment will bolster the market demand for the Benelux thermal scanner. As cooled technology, thermal scanners only used to monitor small temperature differences, whereas uncooled thermal scanners used for monitoring and screening fever. Moreover, uncooled thermal scanners have low maintenance costs and have better penetrating moving parts in weak environmental conditions.
Based on geography, the Benelux thermal scanner market segmented into Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg. Belgium is dominating the market share of the Benelux thermal scanner. It is mainly owing to rising active cases of coronavirus up to 50,000, and the death toll is also increasing day by day. Thus, the adoption of a thermal scanner will help to support the healthcare infrastructure.
