Optical Coherence Tomography Market

Based upon the applications, the optical coherence tomography market is categorized as:

  • Diagnosis
    • Ophthalmology
    • Cardiology
    • Bronchoscopy
    • Dermatology
    • Others
  • Life science Research

The diagnosis segment held the largest share of optical coherence tomography market. The ophthalmology segment has been witnessed to contribute major growth in the optical coherence tomography market. The involvement of OCT device among ophthalmologists is becoming more popular as it enables surgeon to take better surgical decisions and provides improved patient outcomes. Cardiovascular diseases are most common cause of death across the globe. The application of OCT devices is increasing in cardiology with expanding cases of atherosclerosis or myocardial infarction in order to diagnose plaques at the earliest stage. 

OCT has been shown to be very useful tool in dermatology; especially in the diagnosis of skin cancer, skin infections or any inflammatory skin diseases. The real-time structural images of skin obtained from optical coherence tomography improves the diagnostic procedures. The simple and efficient application of optical coherence tomography along with high-resolution detailed images of skin makes the treatment easier and drives the optical coherence tomography market to grow significantly. 

The optical coherence tomography market is predicted to witness substantial growth on account of emerging biomedical application in research field of life science.

 

Optical Coherence Tomography Market

Based on the types of technology involved, the optical coherence tomography market is classified as below:

  • Time-domain OCT (TD-OCT)
  • Spectral-domain OCT (SD-OCT) or Fourier-domain OCT(FD-OCT)
  • Others

The first ever invented and commercially available optical coherence tomography is time-domain OCT. Time-domain OCT is sensitive but not able to acquire the data quickly. However, spectral-domain OCT or Fourier-domain OCT brought about significant changes in OCT market with emerging latest technology. The accuracy of data, better quality of image and high speed technology of SD-OCT help to boost up the optical coherence technology market. The advancement in recent technology of SD-OCT overcomes the limitations of TD-OCT and increases the competitions among manufacturers which in turn drives the OCT market to grow substantially. Swept source OCT is a type of SDOCT where laser being deployed, and preferred in biomedical application on account of its high speed and improved resolution. Micro OCT is one the optical coherence tomography commercially available with highest image resolution which is predicted to drive the OCT market in upcoming years.
