Fmi: Optical Imaging Market Revenue, Opportunity, Forecast and Value Chain 2015-2025

Optical imaging is an emerging non-invasive technology that enables detailed and more precise assessment of tissues, organs and even molecules. Optical imaging uses visible light and photons to obtain exhaustive images of tissues and organs as well as smaller structures such as cells and molecules. Compared to other imaging technologies such as X-ray and MRI, which use ionizing radiation for obtaining images; optical imaging proved to be much safer and efficient. Optical imaging has also been observed to be of great potential for disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Optical imaging uses various colors and spectra of light in order to measure and perceive the varied properties of a tissue or an organ, simultaneously. However, other imaging technologies are restricted to just few measurements. Although, optical imaging technology is in the early phase of development, they offer a wide range of technological advantages (such as multi-applicability and non-invasiveness) over existing imaging technologies.

In terms of geography, North America closely followed by Europe is the leader in optical imaging market owing to the rising geriatric population and high adoption rate. The elderly population has grown radically around the world. According to the WHO, population above 65 years has grown the highest. This population is expected to rise from 13%...
