Global $2.7Bn Optical Imaging Market by 2023: Analysis by Product, Application, End-User and Region -


The "Global
Optical Imaging Market - Segmented by Product (Imaging Systems and
Software), Application, End User (Diagnostic Imaging Centers, Hospitals,
and Research Laboratories), and Region - Growth, Trends, and Forecast
(2018 - 2023)"
report has been added to's

The optical imaging market was worth USD 1.42 billion in 2017. The
market is projected to reach a value of USD 2.7 billion by 2023, growing
at a CAGR of 11.35% over the forecast period (2018-2023).

The healthcare sector is witnessing a tremendous amount of investments
in this technology, as the demand for effective solutions and focus on
early diagnosis of diseases are rising. Moreover, a few of the fields
where such investments have risen are fibre-optics and photonics, which
are also expected to act as a driving factor for the growth of optical
imaging technology.

Owing to the growing relevance of this technology in pharmaceutical and
biotechnological industries, along with medical diagnostics and
therapeutics, the optical imaging market is poised to witness a steady
growth in the upcoming years.

Technological Advancements Lead to Higher Market Penetration and
Drive the Market

Initially, technology for optical imaging was primarily limited to
laboratory use. This would no longer be the case as fast, compact,
user-friendly, and low-cost imaging systems with advanced technological
features are being developed across the world. It is expected to witness
a significant demand in the near future, as the preference for a better
and effective technology arises.

Technological advancements are enabling optical imaging to capture
comparably more data for lesser size. Systems, which are smaller in size
and with the same functionality as that of traditional technology, are
being developed. Imaging is being micronized with the sole purpose of it
being easy-to-use, especially in the healthcare sector, as smaller the
hyper spectral imaging camera, the easier it is to integrate the
technology with endoscopy instruments.
