Dublin, Feb. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) - Global Market Outlook (2017-2026)" report has been added to's offering.

Global Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) market accounted for $690.0 million in 2017 and is expected to reach $1128.11 million by 2026 growing at a CAGR of 5.6%.

Growing geriatric population, rising incidences of skin and neurology based disorders, demand for non-radiation imaging modalities and increasing patient awareness are some key factors propelling the market growth. However, factors such as insufficient clinical data and lack of reimbursement facilities are inhibiting the growth of the market.

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a promising technology for performing high-resolution cross-sectional imaging. OCT is analogous to ultrasound imaging, except that it uses light instead of sound. OCT can provide cross-sectional images of tissue structure on the micron scale in situ and in real time.

Based on application, ophthalmology segment commanded considerable share during the forecast period owing to the rising prevalence of eye diseases and technological advancements in ophthalmic devices. By End user, hospitals and clinics segment is likely to register significant share due to increasing rate of supplying OCT imaging to hospitals to boost efficiency and improve brand image.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow at a steady rate during the forecast period and the growth of this region can be attributed to increasing adoption of OCT system for diagnosis and expansion of competitors and establishment of manufacturing units in the region.
