LED usage in NVIS-compatible lighting to grow from $74.98m to $178.13m in 2021

Global consumption of light-emitting diodes (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 $74.98m in 2014 to $178.13m in 2021, according to a new market research study from ElectroniCast Consultants.

Military sector dominates NVIS marketĀ 

The use of LEDs in NVIS-compatible lighting (night-vision goggle-friendly lighting) will continue to be dominated by the Military market sector. The use of LEDs in Military-category night-vision goggle (NVG)-friendly lighting rose from $60.14m in 2013 to $72.32m in 2014.

"The increase in use of LEDs in night-vision-compatible (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. The displays also must be readable to those not using night vision," Montgomery added.

NVC ship/watercraft lighting

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