Optical imaging is a medical technique which uses visible light to get detailed images of tissues, organs and even micro structures such as cells and molecules. The advancements in the technology have transformed the medical industry in a big way and optical imaging is one such example which has revolutionised the healthcare sector by effectively increasing the diseases detection.
Global optical imaging industry is envisioned to behold a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.3% to reach USD 1.8 Billion over the forecast period i.e. 2015-2021. Geographically, the global optical imaging market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Western and Eastern Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of World. At present, North America is believed to dominate the global optical imaging market followed by Europe.
