12.7% CAGR for Optical Imaging Market to 2019 Says a Research Report Available at offers "Optical Imaging Market by Technique (Optical Coherence Tomography, Hyperspectral Imaging, Photoacoustic Tomography), Product (Imaging System, Imaging software) & by Application (Ophthalmology, Neurology, Oncology, Cardiology) - Global Forecasts to 2019" global research report in its store.


Dallas, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/30/2014 -- The global optical imaging market is expected to grow at a strong CAGR of 12.7% from 2014 to reach 1,669.2 million by 2019. The market is mainly driven by increasing research in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology segments, a growing demand for noninvasive modalities for therapeutic and diagnostic applications due to increasing healthcare awareness, and the successful application of optical imaging technology in medical diagnostics and therapeutics in the end-user markets. However, the high cost and data requirements, stringent regulations regarding medical devices, reimbursement challenges, lack of data validation, and operator skills are hampering the growth of this market.

During the forecast period, the OCT segment will continue to dominate the optical imaging market. OCT is growing primarily due to its successful clinical applications, especially in ophthalmology. Furthermore, the growing demand for optical imaging in pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries for drug formulation and other usages is also expected to drive the growth of the optical imaging market.

By 2019, North America is expected to contribute the largest share to the global optical imaging market, followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific, and RoW. However, developed geographies like North America and Europe are likely to grow at lower CAGRs as compared to Asia-Pacific. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to show the fastest market growth during the forecast period, largely driven by increasing research funding from government and private investors, and the growing number of research laboratories in the region.
