Europe Optical Coherence Tomography Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The size of the Europe optical coherence tomography Market is estimated to hike at a promising CAGR from 2023 to 2028.

The growing demand for new biomedical applications is significantly driving the optical coherence tomography market in the European region. Also, Innovative technologies are necessary to support the shift towards new applications; therefore, the continuous development of innovative technologies is expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities for market growth. Non-melanoma skin cancer, diabetic retinopathy, age-related Macular Disease, cardiovascular disease, Barrett's esophagus, prostate cancer, and other worldwide public health challenges are addressed through OCT. It is intended to be used in medical applications other than ophthalmology, such as the life sciences industry. As a result, label-free, non-invasive in vivo imaging approaches to diagnose and monitor these disorders, such as OCT, are in high demand.

On the other hand, the growing advancements in the technology for developing higher scanning abilities with more excellent resolution and improvements in the technology such as better results with advanced data collection abilities are likely to increase the demand for optical coherence tomography devices and propel the market growth. The European market for optical coherence tomography is highly competitive due to the increase in technology with the increasing competition between the key players for maintaining their position in the market by developing and introducing advanced devices in the market and adopting various strategies such as mergers, an acquisition which helps the optical coherence tomography market to increase their market growth.

In 2020, more than one-fifth (20.6 %) of the EU population was aged 65 and over. Moreover, the share of people aged 80 years or above in the EU's population is projected to have a two-and-a-half-fold increase between 2020 and 2100, from 5.9 % to 14.6 %. Hence, increase in the elderly population, owing to greater life expectancy. Therefore, it is giving rise to various chronic illnesses and diseases with a high prevalence of eye problems such as cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and many more among older people. In this region, the prevalence of glaucoma is higher among the people who come under the 40 to 80 age group, which is 2.93 percent. Furthermore, the increase in the initiatives and investments from government and non-government in research and development activities such as OTC devices for drug invention and the rising demand in biomedical applications are accelerating the market's growth. 

However, the high cost of the equipment and diagnosis and the lack of proper reimbursement policies limit the market growth. Also, lack of awareness among the people and lack of sufficient data related to clinics affect the development of the European optical coherence tomography market.
