LED usage in NVIS-compatible lighting to grow from $62.6m to $170.5m in 2020

Global consumption of LEDs used in night-vision imaging system (NVIS)-compatible illumination (lighting) in non-civilian applications, such as military, law enforcement, emergency medical services (EMS) etc, will rise from $62.61m in 2013 to $170.52m in 2020, according to a new market research study from ElectroniCast Consultants.

The use of LEDs in NVIS-compatible lighting (night-vision-goggle-friendly lighting) will continue to be dominated by the Military market sector. In 2013, the use of LEDs in Military category night vision goggle (NVG) friendly lighting reach $60.14m.

“The increase use of LEDs in night vision compatibility (NVC) devices is driven by the following market dynamics: technological advances, size, weight, and durability in harsh environments (such as military/warfare), lower-maintenance and ecological/energy-saving concerns,” says Stephen Montgomery, director of the LED Lighting market research group at ElectroniCast.

“Military and law enforcement personnel using night vision goggles (NVG) must be able to read illuminated displays without those displays interfering with the performance of the goggles,” he adds. “The displays also must be readable to those not using night vision.”

The Naval/Military sector is aggressively increasing the use of night vision compatible (NVC) lighting, notes the report. This sector is upgrading the NVIS lighting as it addresses the requirement to provide convert aviation capable ships. The NVC ship/watercraft lighting provides the benefit and safety of on-board personnel without affecting the ability of aviators to land safely while using night vision goggles.
