Global optical imaging market overview

According to the optical imaging market analysis, the global optical imaging market is anticipated to grow at a steady rate and will post a CAGR of more than 8% during the forecast period. The increasing market penetration of digital technologies in the optical imaging and medical imaging areas will drive the growth prospects for the global optical imaging market over the next four years. According to the global market research, the application of laser technology includes optical imaging, medical imaging, and microscopy. Also, to increase the process efficiency, the optics and photonics technology is integrated to develop advanced optical imaging systems. Furthermore, the radiation-free Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) technology is used for dental diagnosis and treatment, whereas, the sound navigation and ranging (SONAR) technology are used for capturing images as a part of digital technology in the medical imaging process.

Based on the optical imaging industry insights, the Americas accounted for the maximum market share during 2016 and will continue to dominate the market until the end of 2021. One of the major factors responsible for the increasing number of installations of optical imaging systems is the continual demand from North America that holds the largest market share in the region. Also, according to the industry research report, the adoption rate of optical imaging systems in the US clinics and operating rooms is witnessed to be very high. Moreover, the rate of adoption of these devices is high because they are cost-effectiveness and have non-invasive nature. Furthermore, the developing public-private partnerships would reduce the overall healthcare expenditure, which would boost the influx of end users and accelerate the market’s growth opportunities during the forecasted period.
