dominate the market

Dublin, Nov. 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets
(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/27zdkj/global_thermal) has
announced the addition of the "Global Thermal Imaging Market 2012-2016" report
to their offering.

Analysts forecast the Global Thermal Imaging market to grow at a CAGR of 20.5
percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this
market growth is the need for predictive maintenance of electrical systems.
The Global Thermal Imaging market has also been witnessing the emergence of
the incorporation of communication interfaces. However, the need for increased
investment could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

This report, the Global Thermal Imaging Market 2012-2016, has been prepared
based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The
report covers the Americas, and the EMEA and APAC regions; it covers the
Global Thermal Imaging market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming
years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in
this market.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the engineering team said:
''Although the thermal imaging cameras facilitates in capturing the thermal
images of electrical installations, the thermal images cannot be obtained if
the electrical and mechanical installations are housed inside certain
materials such as glass. Thus, the thermal imaging vendors have started
developing infrared windows that can be fixed/mounted over these housings.
Thus, the effective deployment of infrared windows facilitates in regularly
maintaining electrical installations, thereby preventing the occurrence of
accidents such as arc flash accidents.''

Further, the report discusses that, end-users in the market demand regular
support and services in order to retain the optimum efficiency of thermal
imaging cameras for improved organizational productivity and easy operability.
However, some vendors are unable to meet this demand, thus leading to customer
dissatisfaction. Further, the third-party service providers are not closely
monitored by the market vendors. This deters end-users form even adopting the
effective and efficient thermal imaging cameras. Hence, vendors need to select
the right vendor for obtaining constant support to attain operational
excellence and enhanced convenience.

The key vendors dominating this market space are Flir Systems Inc., Fluke
Corp., and NEC Avio Infrared Technologies Co. Ltd.

The other vendors mentioned in the report are Testo AG, Sierra Pacific
Innovations Corp., Global Maintenance Technologies, and Thermoteknix Systems
Ltd.
