Hyperspectral Imaging Market Growth Challenges, Opportunities and Forthcoming Developments 2026

Hyperspectral Imaging Market Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2018-2026


Seattle, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/08/2019 -- Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) (imaging spectroscopy) is a technique that analyzes a wide range of spectrum of light instead of only assigning primary colors to each pixel. HSI is used in various industries such as healthcare, research and development, food industry, defense sector along with remote sensing, calorimetry, and night vision. Hyperspectral imaging and multispectral imaging are different from each other on the basis of quality of image and provides greater sensitivity than conventional or multispectral imaging. For instance, multispectral imaging provides 2 to 20 images per dataset, while hyperspectral imaging provides over 20 images per dataset. Also, multispectral imaging gives 4 to 20 data points per pixel, while hyperspectral imaging provides full spectrum per pixel.
