Biophotonics Market: Overview

  • Biophotonics is a term derived from the combination of photonics and biology. Photons are central entity in the field of information technology in the same manner as electrons are in electronics. Biophotonics is the application and development of optical methodology such as imaging and diagnosing to study cells and tissues. It refers to detection, emission, absorption, modification, reflection, and creation of radiation from tissues, organisms, biomaterials, and cells. Major applications of biophotonics market are in the fields of life sciences, agriculture, environmental science, and medicine.

Biophotonics Market: Key Drivers

  • Increasing demand for high-quality healthcare and growing elderly population are major factors driving the global biophotonics market. The major benefit of using biophotonics is that it preserves the cells for a specific period when they are examined. Apart from this, advancements of optical technologies in aerospace and telecom industries and availability of funds for research and development are also propelling the global biophotonics market.
  • In addition, rising demand for minimally invasive surgeries and increasing awareness about food security are expected to drive the global biophotonics market during the forecast period. Increasing demand for non-medical applications, including prevention of unauthorized access to data and detection of pathogens in agricultural food products, offers growth opportunities to the market.

Biophotonics Market: Key Segments

  • Medical diagnostics was the leading end use segment of the global biophotonics market in 2018. On the other hand, the non-medical segment is expected to register the most rapid growth rate from 2019 to 2027. Rising use in the detection of pathogens in agricultural food items, need for constant blood monitoring, and need to prevent unauthorized access to data are driving the non-medical applications segment.
  • Among applications, see-through imaging was the leading segment in 2018, owing to rising demand for minimally invasive surgeries and the large number of applications of biophotonics in the field of oncology, cardiology, neurology, and brain imaging. However, the biosensors segment is expected to register the maximum growth rate during the forecast period. Increasing prevalence for diabetes, rising awareness about food security, and surging demand for prevention of unauthorized access are major drivers of the market in the next few years.

Advances in Biophotonics Market Pave Way to New Avenues in Disease Diagnostics

Biophotonics encompasses studying various optical processes in biological systems, whether they are bioengineered or occur naturally. The novel, emerging discipline straddles across four distinct areas comprising lasers, photonics, nanotechnology, and biotechnology. Potential use in diseases diagnostic is fast emerging as a new avenue shaping the evolution of the biophotonics market. An array of biophotonics is harnessed by clinicians to assess biological properties of tissues to make a better clinical assessment of breast cancer. The use of optical biopsy uses near-infrared (NIR) light is a case in point. Another application area that is fast emerging is chronic wound healing.
