Global hyperspectral Imaging Market is segmented on the basis of product type, technology, form factor, system, application and geography. The imaging technique used for collecting and processing information through electromagnetic spectrum termed as hyperspectral imaging (HSI). It is the combination of spectroscopy and digital imaging techniques to obtain the spectral and spatial information about object.
Hyperspectral imaging is better known as imaging spectroscopy or imaging spectrometry. Main purpose of the hyperspectral imaging technique is to identify and create a spectrum of each pixel of the image to study object. It gives physical and geometrical features of objects such as shape, size, appearance and color, along with the chemical composition of the object via spectral analysis. This imaging is performed to identify different objects and materials.
Hyperspectral imaging is a combination of various spectral methods like fluorescence imaging, near infrared, and so on. This type of imaging is dependent on the principle of spectral based contract. Hyperspectral imaging technique is used in the analysis of retinopathy, recognizing & detecting contaminants in food and development of crops. In research areas like nano-drug delivery and nanotoxicology, hyperspectral imaging technique plays a major role. Using an instrument imaging spectrometer hyperspectral images are produced. The image is produced at multiple wavelengths and produces three-dimensional hyperspectral data cube along with one spectral dimension and two spatial dimensions.
In addition, hyperspectral imaging measures absorption of electromagnetic radiation, reflection, emission, and gives a unique spectral signature for every pixel. It is useful in image-guided surgeries and analysis of diseases. It also gives large-scale information for the analysis of the image. The factors that play an important role in the hyperspectral imaging (HSI) market are technological creation in sensor design, growing number of research projects using hyperspectral imaging system, industrial applications of HIS, and manufacturing low-cost cameras that are lightweight and compact.
