Optical Coherence Tomography Market Trends, Business Outlook 2020, Expansion of Current Industry Status by Most Key Players 2031

The report by ESOMAR-certified consulting firm Future Market Insights predicts healthy growth for the optical coherence tomography (OCT) market. According to the report, the market is expected to reach a valuation of $1,349.09 million over the forecast period of 2021 and 2031.

The growing application of OCT in ophthalmology in China, UK, Germany and Japan will boost the demand for optical coherence tomography worldwide.

According to IMF analysis, the optical coherence tomography market in Japan and China is expected to grow by more than 9.8% and 4.6%, respectively, in 2021. The increasing prevalence of eye disorders such as retinopathy diabetic, glaucoma and others will improve the adoption of OCT imaging systems.

The development of advanced OCT imaging systems, coupled with the increase in government and private initiatives for eye care programs across the world, is propelling the adoption of OCT imaging systems.
