Global optical imaging market was valued at $1,386.8 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $3,865.7 million by 2030 registering a CAGR of 10.8% from 2021 to 2030. Optical imaging is the technique for taking images of the internal body parts non-invasively. Visible light and photons are used to take the detailed image of internal organs and tissues. It further captures images of smaller structures includes cells and molecules. These images are used by doctors for diagnosis and treatment of diseases and by scientists for different research work.

The growth of the global optical imaging market is majorly driven by rise in government initiatives to control visual impairment and surge in geriatric population, which is more prone to wide array of diseases such as neurology disorders, ophthalmic conditions, and cardiovascular conditions. In addition, surge in prevalence of eye disorders such as glaucoma and cataract boost the growth of the market. However, lack of access to optical imaging in underdeveloped countries and decrease in demand of optical imaging product, owing to COVID-19 outbreak hamper the growth of market. On the contrary, developing nations show a potential of high growth during forecast period, owing to surge in investments related to healthcare infrastructure and rise in awareness related to optical imaging, which is expected to create opportunity for manufacturers to capitalize in the market.

Optical-Imaging-2021-2030

The COVID-19 pandemic surged the need for social distancing among physicians & other healthcare professionals. Owing to COVID-19, many imaging & diagnostic departments have faced a rapid decrease in optical imaging case volumes. The decrease in optical imaging case has significant implications on the short-term & long-term economic stability for all practice settings. For instance, according to a study provided by the Journal of the American College of Radiology (JACR), nearly 28% decrease in the total imaging volume was observed over a seven week-period during this global health crisis, compared to 2019, including all patient service locations & imaging modality types. The impact the pandemic on the optical imaging market is still seen in 2021 as hospitals & imaging facilities strive to manage under the situations of the world slowly reopening post isolation of almost a year. In addition, nonessential imaging procedures were postponed till further notice in almost all countries. Moreover, the key vendors in this market such as Abbott Laboratories, Canon, Koninklijke Philips, Carl Zeiss, and PerkinElmer, Inc. faced severe issues due to mismanagement in the supply chain of their solutions. Thus, decrease in demand for these optical imaging services due to the COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the growth of optical imaging market.
