Owing to technological advancements and an increase in the application areas of optical imaging techniques in the pharmaceutical and biotechnological sectors and medical diagnostics & therapeutics, the Optical Imaging Market recorded a healthy growth rate in the last decade. Optical imaging is extensively used for several applications including preclinical research, disease diagnosis, and the study of various cellular and molecular processes in vivo such as protein interactions, protein degradation, and protease activity. Thus, increasing research activities in the biopharmaceuticals segment, and the rising applications of optical imaging for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes, has had a positive impact on the growth of this market. In addition, the adoption of optical imaging, due to its noninvasive modalities, and the ability to integrate different optical imaging techniques into a single platform, is expected to drive the demand for optical imaging products in the coming years. However, the high installation cost, complex regulatory requirements, and the lack of skilled operators is likely to hinder the market growth to a certain extent.
