The global multispectral camera market size was valued at $1.9 billion in 2022, and is projected to reach $4.7 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 9.4% from 2023 to 2032.

A multispectral camera is a kind of imaging device that records information not just at the visible light spectrum that is visible to the human eye, but also at numerous wavelengths across the electromagnetic spectrum. Thus, these cameras are able to view and capture data that is not visible to the human eye. Thermal imaging, night vision, and medical diagnostics can benefit from the ability to detect heat fingerprints through the use of infrared radiation. UV radiation: It is possible to utilize this to identify specific minerals, sunburns, and ozone depletion. In addition to being utilized in environmental research and plant health monitoring, near-infrared radiation can be used to see through haze and fog.
