Acoustic Camera Market Outlook - 2026

The global acoustic camera market was valued at $122.63 million in 2019, and is projected to reach $274.57 million by 2026, registering a CAGR of 11.3% from 2020 to 2026.

Acoustic camera is used to detect, locate, identify, and categorize the sound source. It collects signals simultaneously and process it to represent the location of the sound source. Acoustic camera consists of a microphone array from which signals are collected and processed simultaneously to form an image of the location of the sound source. These cameras are being increasingly utilized to combat noise pollution in metropolitan cities. In addition, these cameras are also being used in mapping rocks and for identifying faults in machinery and mechanical parts.

The acoustic camera is used for the quick identification of mid- to high-frequency noise sources. Live measurements are possible using far-field beamforming and near-field holography measurements for detailed analysis of noise radiating from its source at a given frequency. Images are animated and sound are recorded for further analysis and to demonstrate the phase or sound wave. These cameras are designed to provide qualitative data in the form of noise maps.

As per acoustic camera market analysis, a wide range of noise sources can be tested using acoustic cameras. For instance, Ventac, a company based in Ireland uses acoustic cameras to test passenger vehicles, industrial vehicles, heavy machinery, and electronic equipment. This enhanced technology allows users among various industry vertical to conduct detailed noise source identification analysis, providing targeted solutions for noise problems.

TOP IMPACTING FACTORS

The factors such as maintenance optimization by various industries to ensure safety & efficient performance, increase in usage of acoustic cameras in oil & gas and power generation projects, stringent safety government regulations, high manufacturing and maintenance cost of acoustic cameras, and increase in use of advance NDT equipment are expected to significantly impact the growth of the global acoustic camera market size.

Maintenance optimization by various industries to ensure safety and efficient performance of the machines

Acoustic cameras are used to identify and locate sound and its frequencies to identify defects in material properties before they cause equipment or infrastructure failure. They are used to maximize both tester and tested product safety. Most of the tests are completely harmless to users. Acoustic camera acts as a preventive measure in industries where volatile or high-pressure equipment and machinery are manufactured or used. The main aim of acoustic camera is to identify and resolve issues that otherwise would prove harmful. In addition, acoustic camera is reliable as it eliminates the risk of oversight or inaccuracy. Considering these factors, the impact of this driver is currently high, and is expected to remain so during the forecast period.

High manufacturing and maintenance cost of acoustic camera

Acoustic camera is quite expensive and faces significant obstacles for its adoption majorly in the developing nations. Lack of adequate funding from the government in developing countries such as Qatar, South Korea, and others for the adoption of the security technologies in various end uses hamper the growth of the market. The use of enhanced technology involves major investment, which acts as a barrier for the acoustic camera market. The installation and maintenance of these cameras are usually high, which increases the cost of the technology. Thus, initial investment acts as a major threat to the developing regions or small enterprises and hampers the growth of the acoustic camera market share.

Increase in usage of advance NDT equipment

Advancement in technology in the non-destructive testing equipment acts as an opportunity in the acoustic camera market as it offers more reliable and accurate inspection data. Advanced technologies in this equipment include eddy-current array and phased array ultrasonic, which provide superior ways of presenting data and generate inspection reports of advanced value to consumers. For instance, phased array ultrasonic produces an image that can interpret a color-coded c-scan. Similarly, a color-coded eddy-current array c-scan is used to interpret the accurate characteristics of the material. Therefore, this advanced NDT equipment are expected to offer lucrative acoustic camera market opportunity with future trends and innovations.
