Upper Lake, CA, United States, 2012/06/11 - ElectroniCast provides an extensive 2011-2018 market forecast & analysis for LEDs, which have night vision compatibility with night vision imaging systems (NVIS) - ElectroniCastConsultants.com.
ElectroniCast Consultants, a leading LED market research company, today announced a new market forecast report of the global consumption of light emitting diodes (LEDs) in Night Vision Imaging System (NVIS) compatible lighting in non-civilian applications, such as military, law enforcement, emergency medical services (EMS) and related applications.
LEDs used in Night Vision Imaging Systems must provide an environment that will not have near infrared (NIR) noise, which would interfere with the nighttime sensitivity of the NVGs. It is important to note that night vision compatibility (NVC) is only achieved when the design of the lighting equipment allows for proper use with and without the NVIS, at night or during the day.
According to the ElectroniCast (electronicastconsultants.com), the use of LEDs in NVIS compatible lighting will continue is dominated by the Military market sector. The Military sector includes the following: Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard, National Guard (and State-level Guard/Defense) and the equivalent from countries worldwide.
The Law Enforcement sector includes Local, State and National Law Enforcement (National: all of the “3-letter” agencies, plus other/related– FBI, DHS/ICE, DEA, ATF, CIA, DSS, etc, plus many other relative law enforcement), as well as the equivalent from countries worldwide. The application category also includes Emergency Services: Emergency Medical Services-EMS, Fire/Rescue/Forestry, etc.
The Ship/Watercraft category under the Military sector is forecast with the fastest growth (2011-2018), led by LEDs used in exterior NVIS compatible lighting. Another category with a large market share is the Aircraft category, with over 25% of the total worldwide consumption of LEDs used in Night Vision Imaging System compatible lighting in 2012.
The American region held the market share lead in the consumption value of LEDs used in NVIS compatible lighting in 2012. The American region, led by the United States, is forecast to maintain the lead in relative market share throughout the 2011-2018 forecast period; however, the Asia Pacific region is forecast for the fastest growth.
