Global Medical Fiber Optics Market: Growth Dynamics

Fiber optics thus become a key enabler for the standard of care in the healthcare systems world over. Salient characteristics that make a versatile component in wide range of diagnostic devices and surgical instruments are their being immune to strong electromagnetic fields, their non-toxicity, and chemical inertness. The broad imperative for advances in the medical fiber optics market is the need for improvements in the diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment of diseases for a rapidly aging worldwide populations. There is a consistent demand for minimally-invasive surgeries in neurology, gastroenterology, and cardiology. Surgeons are increasingly deploying instrumentation equipped with miniaturized sensing technology, thus boosting the prospects of the medical fiber optics market.

Growing popularity of disposable sensing catheters has bolstered the uptake of fiber optics in medical diagnosis and treatment technologies. Additionally, world over, medical fiber optics help in advancing kidney care by being part of surgical technologies used in urology. Strides made in medical instrumentation technology have propelled the prospects of the use of fiber optics in sensing technologies.

Global Medical Fiber Optics Market: Notable Development

Optical equipment manufacturers have been harnessing the potential of medical fiber optics for cutting-edge sensing technologies used in wide range of diagnostics and surgical instrumentation. Growing body of research in fiber optics for medical applications is paving way to next-generation diagnostics for humans. Investigators from Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) and the University of Salento, recently teamed up and developed an optics mechanism to capture and pinpoint the epicenter of neural activity in the brain. The new development—using tapered optical probe–is considered to have transformative potential in neuroscience. The fiber optics technology can map connections across different brain regions by capturing light coming from different neurons lying over a long distance. The study comes under the aegis of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program, and is also funded by the National Institutes of Health.

Growing quantum of research grants will expand the potential of the medical fiber optics market by bringing novel technologies to the healthcare fraternity.

Some of the players vying for substantial stakes in the medical fiber optics market are IPG Photonics, Vitalcor Inc., Laserscope, and American Medical System LLC (AMS).
