Optogenetics Market

Based on the type of sensors, the global optogenetics market is subdivided as follows:

  1. Voltage-Sensitive Fluorescent Proteins (VSFPs)
  2. Genetically Encoded Calcium Indicators (GECI)
  3. Chloride Sensors
  4. pH Sensors
  5. Neurotransmitter Release Sensors

 Optogenetics Market

VSFPs are expressed by cells, thus this allows them advantage from genetic targeting perspective. Initially, voltage-sensitive dyes were used for visualization of voltage changes, however, localized expression was difficult to achieve. VSFPs have higher precision compared to its precursors. Yet, there is very limited data available demonstrating the benefits of use of VSFPs. VSFPs are opined to have come to a stage where their potential will be effectively harnessed. A basic issue with using calcium levels as a parameter for action potentials is that some cellular processes use alteration of Ca2+levels. Hence, no matter how precise and sensitive GECIs are made, they still possess a risk of overestimating action potential. GECIs have been successfully used for assessment of synaptic and spiking activity across neurons. Further evolution in this field will increase information about mechanism of synaptic circuits.

For the purpose of this study, the global optogenetics market is categorized as follows:

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Canada
  • Europe
    • U.K.
    • Germany
    • Rest of Europe
  • Asia-Pacific
    • Japan
    • China
    • Rest of Asia-Pacific
  • Latin America (LATAM)
  • Middle East and Africa (MEA)

Optogenetics Market

North America and particularly United States is the largest market for optogenetics. Large-scale neuroscience and optogenetic research activities being conducted in North America. Optogenetics in North America is anticipated to follow the overall biotechnology market trends in the region. Europe is second in lead in terms of regional revenue. High awareness and breakthrough research activities being conducted in this region by both academic institutions and related companies. Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Middle East and Africa are still in the adoption stage of this technology. However, among these regions, Asia-Pacific is estimated to be the fastest developing regional market. Large-scale CRO activities being conducted in the region also allow the growth of Asia-Pacific optogenetics market.
