Hyperspectral imaging is becoming an important part of optical spectroscopy-based imaging services. These include space missions, airborne remote sensing programs, industrial inspection and grading, medical applications, health diagnostics, food quality inspections, and defense and security applications.

The report "Hyperspectral Imaging - Market and Technology Forecast to 2030" offers a detailed analysis of the global hyperspectral imaging systems’ market over the next eight years, and provides market size forecasts. Furthermore, it covers key technological and market trends in the industry and analyzes factors influencing demand for hyperspectral imaging systems.

Global hyperspectral imaging markets will reach US$49.4 bn through 2030 from US$20 bn in 2022. The availability of hyperspectral scanners in all types of spectral ranges has created ample industrial and commercial application opportunities for hyperspectral imaging worldwide. By 2030, the hyperspectral imaging business in the world will flourish in almost all types of end-use applications.

Non-destructive and non-invasive monitoring is making hyperspectral imaging popular among many commercial and industrial applications such as food quality testing, diagnosis of cancer, identifying counterfeits, identifying fake art, sorting recycled material, automotive dashboard cameras, and so on. The list will grow as many startups are entering into service-oriented businesses based on hyperspectral imageries.

Many hyperspectral imaging system developers and manufacturers are tech-driven and lack vision for the scalability of the business and lack skills for marketing. Headwall selling the majority of the equity to Arsenal Capital Partners or Specim selling their business to Konika Minolta are examples where lack of ability to scale has made these companies make such decisions.

Going further in the next ten years we could see more of such decisions from other hyperspectral imaging companies. Mostly due to lack of capital or lack of ability to scale the business. The business is going to be huge and will expand in many countries and applications.
