The global night vision devices market size is expected to reach $9.9 billion by 2025, rising at a market growth of 8.3% CAGR during the forecast period. The growing need of contemporary armies to function at night and under bad visibility circumstances has resulted to important advances in night vision devices technology. The escalated spending by governments on these devices to fulfill the demand for combat operations and night patrolling has helped in evaluating the significant growth prospects during the forecast period.
Night vision devices can detect and identify targets at night and even under poor visibility conditions, which is of very essential benefit for the military. The army needs to operate at night under conditions of extremely poor visibility, which has led to major advances in the development of these devices.
Furthermore, soldiers have to often fight in the dark at night, due to which they have to face severe stress while detecting the location of target. Therefore, to provide the forces with up-to-date and sophisticated night vision capabilities, the developers of these devices are careful in choosing which components to use.
The human eye has a number of physical limitations, due to which electronic image intensifiers can provide a fundamental improvement and perception gain through capturing more photons and using them more efficiently. Photons are collected by using an objective lens of larger diameter as compared to the pupil of a dark-adapted eye.
