Market Overview

The acoustic camera market is expected to register a CAGR of 4% over the forecast period (2021 - 2026). An acoustic camera is an innovative way of locating, visualizing, quantizing, and auraling sound sources. It uses the capabilities of a microphone array with a camera to “paint” a picture of the sound and the various sound intensities.

  • The drivers responsible for the growth of the market include the growing adoption of room and building acoustics, and emerging audio and video combined microphone and camera array technology.
  • The rise in demand for process automation, adoption of artificial intelligence and machine learning, and stringent regulation against noise pollution is also responsible for the growth of the acoustic camera market.
  • The market is highly competitive in terms of varying prices of raw materials, and advancement in technology in the market has completely shifted the industries toward the adoption of automation. Thus, the usage of the acoustic camera provides industries the digital analysis to find faults in the machines by mapping of the machine in its initial face and after the fault.
  • Therefore, the usage of the acoustic camera market has been increased in sectors such as energy and power, which in turn boost the acoustic camera market trends.
  • Due to the adoption of inorganic strategies by established players, there is a tight competition for new entrants, thereby restricting the growth of the market. The high manufacturing cost of the product is hindering the growth of the market.

Scope of the Report

An acoustic camera is an imaging device that is used in order to locate sound sources and to characterize these sound sources. The acoustic camera consists of a group of microphones, also called a microphone array that is simultaneously acquired to form a representation of the location of the sound sources.
