Xenon Light Source Market By Type (Long Arc Xenon Light Source, Short Arc Xenon Light Source), By Application (Endoscopic Procedures And Surgeries, Life Science Applications), Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

Industry Outlook

The global xenon light source market is expected to reach US$ 526.5 Mn by 2026, and exhibit sluggish compound annual growth rate of 1.2% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. Xenon light sources are characterized by high power and true color projection making in ideal for endoscopy surgeries that require bright light. Moreover, xenon lights are widely used as illumination sources for a large number of investigations in wide-field fluorescence microscopy, and other life science applications such as in-vitro diagnostics, proteomics, drug discovery, and blood analysis. The xenon light source market is projected to grow at a sluggish rate due to growing preference of LED lights over xenon lights. LED lights offer lower risk in compared to xenon lights especially during surgeries as it overheats, making it difficult to handle and posing a potential risk to the patient as well as the medical practitioners. Hence, growing uptake of LED lights would hinder the growth of xenon light sources market.

Market Synopsis

Xenon Light Source Market

Short Arc Xenon Light Source to Retain Dominance through the Forecast Period

Short arc xenon light sources offer intense and small light focused in optical systems. Xenon short arc lamps currently dominate the market and generate ultraviolet light and readily pass through the fused quartz lamp envelope. Therefore, some short arc xenon light sources have envelopes made from ultra-pure synthetic fused silica allowing emission of useful light into vacuum ultraviolet region. Xenon short arc lamps found in two variants: pure xenon and xenon-mercury. Long arc lamps are mainly used where spectrum is like sunlight such as in test laboratories demanding heavy exposure to sunlight. Xenon long arc lamps have wide application encompassing non-biological uses such as age testing of materials, assessment of plant growth and rapid thermal processing. However, long arc lamps have limited exposure in life science application, yet commonly used in monitoring photochemical reactions.

Lifescience Applications to Render Stability to the Global Market

Xenon arc lamps used for lifescience applications encompass microscopy processes. These products have replaced mercury lamp sources as they have enhanced intensity across the visible spectrum and do not have high spectral intensity peaks. Short arc xenon lamps are more desirable in lifescience applications due to their smaller arc size, therefore, avoiding wastage of light intensity. Xenon arc lamps also have a longer lifetime. Xenon arc lamps are more suitable for applications requiring simultaneous excitation of multiple fluorophores with wide wavelength range. However, the introduction of LED light source will challenge the position of xenon light sources as they have an average lifetime of 10,000 hours and emit less heat.

Flourishing Contract Research and Manufacturing Industry in Asia Pacific will Reflect Sustenance in the Region

At present, North America is dominating the global xenon light source market. Greater outreach of healthcare infrastructure, persistent RD activities, and higher affordability are the key factors driving the dominance of this region. Additionally, adoption of novel technologies is also very swift in the region. This has therefore led to the rapid replacement of xenon light sources with LED counterparts, therefore rendering sluggish growth in North America. This scenario has further resulted in the diverted attention of major manufacturers to the emerging markets of Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa. The proliferation of local players in Asia Pacific is also high. Flourishing CRO and CMO activities in the region has also led to swift uptake of xenon light sources in this market.
