Global Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) for Ophthalmology Market to Reach $754.4 Million by the Year 2026
Optical coherence tomography (OCT), a non-invasive, diagnostic technology is fast becoming an established imaging technology in ophthalmic diagnosis. OCT relies on light waves for capturing high-quality 3D retinal images in a non-invasive manner, enabling medical professionals to study eye conditions.

An aging population, growing prevalence of ocular diseases, rapid increase in diabetic population and increasing focus on curbing healthcare expenditures continue to drive the demand for ophthalmic diagnostic equipment. With rise in the average life span, there is an increasing incidence of ophthalmic and ocular conditions which is a natural phenomenon of aging.

In addition, lifestyle trends and rising levels of pollution in developed and developing countries have put an ever-increasing number of people at risk of developing potential eye allergies, hypersensitivity to environmental elements such as pollen, dust, and dry eye syndrome among others. A key trend in the space is integration of various devices into single equipment. The ongoing shift to spectral domain OCT technology from time domain OCT is spurring growth in the market.

Spectral domain OCT, an advancement in imaging technology enables efficient examination of ocular pathologies. Further infusing growth into the segment is the integration of built in devices such as fundus cameras and OCT scanning laser ophthalmoscopes. Software upgrades in OCT systems are introducing advanced disease-progression analysis featuring greater range in data capture and imaging.

The U.S. Market is Estimated at $169.9 Million in 2021, While China is Forecast to Reach $96.9 Million by 2026
