Biophotonics Market Trends

  • The noteworthy technological advancements over the decade is driving the market growth

Many optical technologies that enable the interaction of light or photons with different biological species, molecules, cells, and tissues are developed using biophotonics. There are two subcategories of biophotonics: research and clinical applications. Three subcategories of research—photo mechanics, spectroscopy, and fiber optic sensors—can also be made. In dentistry, photomechanics is utilized to examine the connection between macroscopic mechanical stress and strain gradients. Studying the interplay between radiated energy and matter is made easier by spectroscopy. Last but not least, chemical and physical properties can be remotely sensed using fiber optic sensors.

Big data technologies and machine learning are rapidly being employed in biomedical and healthcare research because enormous volumes of clinical and biological data are being generated and acquired at an unparalleled size and speed. The existing analytical methods employed in biophotonics can only collect data from datasets' surface, which results in the loss of important information that these datasets may be able to supply. As a result, technologies like machine learning and big data have been integrated to perform an in-depth analysis of these datasets and produce more usable information.

Users that utilize machine learning techniques can detect more subtle and complicated signals as well as particles. Despite the fact that researchers have been able to capture images with extremely high content that show the locations of numerous molecules of moving particles, some of these images have very low contrast, a noisy background, and fuzzy edges, making it difficult to count the precise number of particles present in the image and necessitating manual counting. Researchers have started employing machine learning techniques, which train the computer to recognize and identify specific particles in the image, to get rid of these complexity. The adoption of biophotonics is being accelerated by the thorough analysis and extraction of crucial information that machine learning may be able to enable. Thus, driving the Biophotonics market revenue.

Biophotonics Market Segment Insights

Biophotonics Application Insights

Based on the application, the market segments of biophotonics is divided into Microscopy, See-through Imaging, Light Therapy, Biosensors, Inside Imaging, and Surface Imaging (endoscopy) and Others. In 2022, the see-through imaging segment accounted for the largest share of the market, with 42.4% and a market revenue of over USD 21.9 Billion. The see-through imaging market maintained the largest market share as a result of the ongoing need for radical non-invasive surgical procedures in a number of medical specialities, including cardiology, neurology, brain imaging, and oncology.
