The global imaging colorimeters market was valued at USD 402 Million in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 710 Million by 2027, expanding at a CAGR over 6.9% during the forecast period. The imaging colorimeter offers quick recording of colorimetric quantities with a spatial resolution. In comparison with other measuring instruments like spectrometers without spatial resolution, imaging colorimeter offers various advantages that contains, major time savings with instantaneous capture of a large quantity of measurements in a single image and wide range of image processing software. It offers features like measurement of homogeneity and contrast of flat panel displays, measurement of luminance and color distribution of panel graphics, and capturing luminance distribution curves of small lamps and luminaires.
An imaging photometer/colorimeter is a robust CMOS or CCD based instrument which offers vastly increased efficiency compared with spot colorimeters and luminance meters. An imaging colorimeter measures the luminance or color of millions of points instantaneously. It offers various features like accurate measurement and defect detection capabilities in the automotive applications and avionics displays and controls, sensors with around 12 megapixels for enhanced image quality, in-vehicle lighting, flat panel displays.
Imaging colorimeters is an accurate assessment of color which is essential in many applications. A colorimetry technology is designed to serve this purpose by providing tristimulus values for a given color stimulus. Colorimetry systems often consist of a measurement device, and a corresponding calibration mapping. A colorimeter is a device that measures the absorbance of particular wavelengths of light by a specific solution.
High Demand for Consumer Electronics
The need for the calibration of electronics devices, such as LED, OLED and other consumer electronics with displays, is increasing rapidly since the past few years due to the increasing need for brightness and color contrast adjustments. Considering the above-mentioned factors, the demand for imaging colorimeters is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The flat panel displays (FPDs) market is showing significant market growth rate, driven mostly by ongoing demand for televisions, smart phones, laptops/computers, and smart cameras among others. Likewise, applications for solid-state sources are mounting and consist of surgical lamps, automotive lighting, LED signs, architectural luminaires, and a range of consumer lighting products. The requisite to support higher production quantities, along with growing consumer demands for competitive pressure & quality, requires a metrology system that provides high speed, accurate measurements of source luminance and display, color and defect characteristics.
Full Frame Charge Coupled Device (CCD) is Propelling the Market Growth
The Charge Coupled Device (CCD)’s manufacturing process is exclusive and has the capability to carry charge throughout the chip without distortion. The full-frame CCDs process leads to excellent quality sensors in terms of fidelity and light sensitivity. Full frame CCD holds a major share as well as propelling market growth due to the upsurge in demand for LCDs and displays. Furthermore, the market is in demand due to the upsurge in the need for accuracy in the measurement of color and light. Also, full-frame CCD’s are used in measurement testing and measuring angle and in flat panel display.
Based on type, the market has been divided into Full Frame CCD, interline transfer CCD, Others. The Full Frame CCD segment is expected to hold a substantial market share during the forecast period. The main reason behind it is that it features high-density pixel arrays with the capability of producing digital images with the highest resolution currently available. This widespread CCD architecture is known for wide adoption for its simple design, reliability, and ease of fabrication. The Interline Transfer CCD segment is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of around 7.2% during the forecast period. Interline-transfer CCDs are favored for application that requires high speed measurement as here the image capture and readout/scan processes can be managed simultaneously. Second benefit of interline transfer CCD sensors is here the sensor area is comparatively small and so comparatively inexpensive to manufacture.
Based on the application, the market has been bifurcated into display test, light measurement, surface inspection, keyboard inspection, automotive solutions, others. The display test segment is the dominant segment in terms of market share as well as expected to register a considerable CAGR growth rate of 7.5% over the forecast period. Imaging colorimeters used in a wide range of display tests/defects and can be identified as pixel defects and line defects, damage to the screen, physical imperfections in screen manufacture, and imperfections in image uniformity.
Based on regions, the global imaging colorimeters market is bifurcated into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa (MEA). The United States is considerably leading the global imaging colorimeter market owing to the rise in industrialization, wide range of application areas of imaging colorimeters, and rise in the use of LCD and LED displays. Europe accounted for the second-largest share in the global market due to the increasing use of imaging colorimeters in pharmaceutical laboratories. In the Asia Pacific region, the growth in China and India is driven by development in technology and increasing industrialization which is eventually increasing the market growth. Furthermore, cheap labor developed technologies and the cheap raw material is fueling the market growth in developing economies.
