Digital Imaging Market Outlook – 2027
Digital imaging is the development of a digitally encoded image of an object's visual properties, such as a physical scene or an object's internal structure. Digital imaging systems are a full digitization solution tailored to rare and precious items of cultural heritage. Digital imaging is used by scholars and organizations from the digital humanities to digitize artifacts or precious items.
The ability to create digital copies indefinitely without any loss of picture quality is one of the advantages of a digital image over an analog image. In addition, digital imaging provides ability to recreate the quality of partially damaged images, thereby removing the risk of modifying or damaging the original.
The global digital imaging market is segmented on the basis of technology, application, industry vertical, and region. Based on technology, the digital imaging market is divided into machine vision, metrology, radiography, and LiDAR. In terms of application, the market is categorized into inspection, reverse engineering, and surveying. On the basis of industry vertical, the market is divided into automotive, aerospace, oil & gas, energy & utility, manufacturing, construction, consumer electronics, food & beverages, and pharmaceutical. Geographically, the market is analyzed across several regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa (LAMEA).
