Increasing number of start-ups in the OCT market and rising number of agreements with distributors to increase product reach likely to boost revenue growth of the global optical coherence tomography market

Applications of OCT are growing as research and innovation are continuously paving way for the development of solutions for various disease treatments and medical diagnoses. OCT is used to examine tumours in the human body in real time, which will help in identification and treatment. It is also used in dental medicine for the estimation of the mineral density of teeth and observation of various dental surgeries. Dermatology and Ophthalmology are the two branches of medical science that use OCT applications. OCT is used in dermatology to identify skin cancer and visualise the different layers of the skin, while it is used in ophthalmology for the diagnosis of various diseases. OCT is also used in non-medical applications for identifying the layers, dimensions and characters of semi-conductor chips and LCD layers. This frequent usage of OCT applications is driving its growth in the global optical coherence tomography market.

Optical coherence tomography has covered a long journey from lab valve to commercialised devices as the first device introduced in the market in 1996 was a basic model working with the technology on Time Domain OCT. Now-a-days, OCT devices work on various technologies such as Fourier domain OCT. There are various medical innovations such as in April 2017, Optovue launched high-density OCT angiography for ophthalmology to provide high resolution and peripheral visualisation of the vasculature in eyes, while detection of macular edema of eye and identification of blood and cardiac walls in beating embryonic hearts are under innovation. Product innovation is also boosting the global optical coherence tomography market.

Companies are collaborating with a number of distribution channel partners in different locations to provide their products and services. This concept of partnering with regional distributors saves the company revenue and time spent in understanding local markets. For instance, in October 2016, Optopol Technology announced a partnership with BiB Ophthalmic Instruments, U.K for the distribution of OCT systems in the U.K. market. Another example is the partnership of Optovue with ROCOL SA for the marketing and distribution of medical and ophthalmology equipment. Agreements with distributers to increase product reach is creating a positive impact on the global optical coherence tomography market.

About the Report

Manufacturers in the global optical coherence tomography market are focussing on developing different product types such as spectral domain-OCT devices to retain larger market share. In a new report titled “Optical Coherence Tomography Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment, 2017–2027” the analysts of Future Market Insights have observed that optical coherence tomography manufacturing companies are entering into mergers and acquisitions with medical device manufacturers or ophthalmic equipment manufacturers to expand their product type portfolio and market presence across the globe. Furthermore, they have noticed that the companies are focussing on the advancement of technology for different optical coherence tomography products such as spectral domain-OCT and other devices in order to reduce costs and thus compete in the market with reduced prices.

As far as regional analysis is concerned we have observed that North America represents the most lucrative market, followed by Western Europe and Asia Pacific Excluding Japan, while the optical coherence tomography market in MEA is expected to record comparatively less growth due to low awareness among key stakeholders such as patients and healthcare professionals.
