OCT segment holds the largest market share by product

Optical imaging is a rapidly evolving medical imaging technology that uses light spectrum to assess the optical properties of several body structures. This developing technology represents a huge opportunity for enhancing disease prevention, medical diagnosis and management, life science, and clinical research. In 1996, Carl Zeiss Meditec AG launched optical coherence tomography-based imaging devices; the world established its first optical imaging solution. Since its advent, there have been enormous technological progressions in this field, and several new technologies have been introduced in the global optical imaging market.

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is utilized in various areas of research & clinical applications. The OCT allows high-resolution cross-sectional imaging of tissue structures on the micron scale in real-time and in laboratories. OCT is a three-dimensional non-invasive real-time imaging modality based on advanced photonics and fibre optics technologies. The OCT technique commanded the largest global optical imaging market share, mainly attributed to emerging technological advancements. By OCT imaging of optically scattering, non-transparent tissues have become possible. It has enabled the use of OCT in various biomedical applications.

Increasing applications in the pharmaceutical industry is a major factor driving the growth

Optical imaging is widely used to monitor disease progression during treatment and understand treatments' efficacy. Moreover, it is also used in preclinical activities to gain enhanced knowledge about protein interaction, degradation of proteins, and their proteolytic activity. With a wide range of applications, biotechnological and pharmaceutical companies demand optical imaging is rapidly increasing. In addition, rising strategic alliances such as collaborations, partnerships, mergers, and acquisitions among research institutes and companies are increasing the number of clinical studies; this is expected to provide greater revenue growth opportunities for market players in the coming years
