Global Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) Industry Outlook to 2023 with Abbott Labs, Canon, Heidelberg Engineering, Nikon Corp, Phoenix Research Labs, Thorlabs, and Topcon Dominating

5/10/2019, 5:20 PM (Source: GlobeNewswire)

Dublin, May 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Markets and Technologies for Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)" report has been added to's offering.

Growth factors include technological advancement in OCT products, adoption of OCT systems in different application areas and strong investment in R&D activities by key market players, such as CarlZeiss Meditec Inc., Abbott and Topcon Medical Systems Inc., among others.

Within the context of this report, the global markets and technologies for optical coherence tomography (OCT) are segmented based on product type, application and region.

Among product type segments, the frequency domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) segment accounted for the highest market share in the global market for optical coherence tomography in 2017.

Growth in FD-OCT technologies is evident from the diverse acceptance of OCT products in areas like cardiology, oncology, ophthalmology, dentistry and others. The advantages of FD-OCT, such as speed of acquisition, reduced motion artifacting, two to three times better sensitivity, and speeds 50 to 100 times faster than those of TD-OCT, all lead to better imaging technique and thus a higher market value of the FD-OCT systems.

The report includes:

  • 15 data tables and 34 additional tables
  • An overview of the global market for optical coherence tomography (OCT)
  • Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2017 to 2018, and projections of CAGRs through 2023
  • Comparative study of traditional/time domain (TD-OCT), frequency domain (FD-OCT), and polarization sensitive (PD-OCT) OCT and discussion of their characteristics
  • Insights into significant funding initiatives from government agencies and regulatory framework
  • Discussion of technological advancement and growing adoption rate of OCT
  • Comprehensive company profiles of major players, including Abbott Laboratories, Canon, Heidelberg Engineering, Nikon Corp., Phoenix Research Labs, Thorlabs Inc. and Topcon
