Acoustic Cameras An Up-And-Coming Market
By Mat Dirjish
A brief primer, more than just a fancy term for microphone, an acoustic camera is an imaging tool for locating and characterizing sound sources. An acoustic camera consists of a microphone array of analog or digital microphones and an optional imaging camera, depending on the application. The microphones detect audible events simultaneously or using time delays to determine phase differences between sound signals.
According to Allied Market Research, the global acoustic camera market is set to reach $274.6 million by 2026 at a CAGR of 11.3% from 2020 to 2026. Applications driving this somewhat mild, yet consistent growth are diverse industrial maintenance routines to enable safety and efficient machine performance.
