Holography for Industrial Applications - A Global Strategic Business ReportGlobal Industry Analysts, Inc.3, San Jose, CA, USA
February 08, 2011 -- Global Holography for Industrial Applications Market to Reach US$13.85 Billion by 2015, According to a New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.
GIA announces the release of a comprehensive global report on Holography for Industrial Applications markets. The global market for Holography for Industrial Applications is forecast to reach US$13.85 billion by the year 2015. Key factors propelling growth include increased utilization in specialized applications, including aircrafts and automobiles, television, telecommunications, computing and designing of assembly and scanning.
Holographic technology is utilized in industrial applications for quality control in production and fracture testing such as holographic nondestructive testing. Holographic technology is also used in civilian and military aircrafts, which utilizes? heads-up? displays or holograms. Holography is also utilized by artists for exploring pure light and 3D space. Medical professionals would most likely use improved holograms for examination of three-dimensional data gathered by CAT and MRI scan cameras in complete three-dimensional format. Several researchers consider MEMS (micro electric mechanical systems) would play an important role in making practical holographic devices, as they would make the technology less costly. MEMS are an integration of sensors, mechanical elements, electronics and actuators on a common silicon substrate. The achievement of a total systems-on-a-chip is the outcome of the combination of silicon-based micromachining technology and microelectronics.
The United States represents the largest regional market for industrial applications of holography worldwide, as stated by the new market research report on Holography For Industrial Applications. European market is a distant second, followed by the Japanese market. Holography is now being adopted for specialized applications in the production of aircrafts and automobiles, television, telecommunications, computing and designing of assembly and scanning. The two largest segments of the global holographic market include Holographic scanning and Holographic testing. The market for Holographic Scanning is projected to record a compounded annual growth rate of 7.4% during the analysis period. Holographic Optical Elements is projected to register the fastest compounded annual growth rate of 8.5% during the analysis period.
Electron holography, a method used to create images from materials at atomic dimensions is currently being improved as a result of accessibility of electron microscopes that provides coherent emission of electron. This improvement results in changes in fields of nanostructured materials, DRAM capacitor design and high temperature superconductors. At present, various companies are supplying commercially viable electron holographic microscopes and the method is being utilized for exploring structure of materials. Many companies are searching for new applications for different electron-holographic methods. Another application of electron holography is being established by investigating the characteristics of complex molecules, including catalysts, polymers and different types of electronic materials such as nanostructured superlattices and cadmium telluride.
