A hyperspectral imaging system can be defined as a technique used to analyze a wide spectrum of light through a spectrometer. The device uses reflected, transferred or emitted light from the object to generate its spectral-based image in multiple colors (including red, blue and green). It also measures the absorption of electromagnetic radiations, reflections and emissions from the object. The imaging technique is commonly used to monitor the development of crops, identification of contaminants in food products, screening of manufacturing defects and automated sorting of products. Owing to this, it finds extensive applications across various industries, including military and defense, mining, agriculture, food and beverage, medical diagnostics, etc.

The growing medical and healthcare sector, along with the increasing adoption of medical imaging systems, is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Hyperspectral imaging systems are widely utilized for the diagnosis and treatment of various diseases by analyzing the composition and physiology of the tissues and cells in the body. Furthermore, it is used for detecting the presence of cancerous cells and analyzing the progression of other chronic diseases. Additionally, the increasing deployment of these imaging systems in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Technological advancements in imaging sensors and improvements in spatial resolution are making surveillance, mapping and imaging more effective. Other factors, including growing industrial and agricultural applications, along with extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are projected to drive the market further.
