Existing technological advancements such as wireless microchips and the growing use of optogenetics in neuroscience are favorable signals to the market's growth rate. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2017, an estimated 300 million people were affected by depression globally which is the primary cause of disability.

The growing number of research institutes worldwide and rising awareness for effective treatment procedures propel the global optogenetics market growth. In addition, factors such as the growing prevalence of launching new applications in the biotechnology field with advanced technology and growth in the scale of healthcare centers are ascribed to drive the development of the global optogenetics market. The growing number of neuropsychiatric disorder cases is further expected to strengthen the market growth. According to Alzheimer’s Disease International, an estimated 55 million people worldwide lived with dementia in 2020, and it is estimated to reach 78 million by 2030 and 139 million by 2050. Diverse initiatives have been undertaken by the organizations such as NIH and WHO; these initiatives are expected to favor the growth rate of the market.

Furthermore, the available funds required for R&D activities and the growing incidences of mood disorders, depression, Parkinson's disease, and other related diseases are projected to accelerate the growth rate of the global optogenetics market. According to the Parkinson’s Foundation study report, around 60,000 Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson's disease yearly. About 10 million people had Parkinson's disease in 2016. In addition, the growing adoption rate of optogenetics technology in behavioral and neuroscience is another significant factor boosting the market growth.

MARKET RESTRAINTS

The lack of comprehensive understanding and awareness about optogenetics among researchers, clinicians, and potential end-users is one of the major factors hampering the market growth. The high cost associated with the instruments and reagents, technological challenges and stringent regulations and ethical guidelines surrounding the use of optogenetics techniques further impede the market growth. Compatibility challenges, limited availability of skilled researchers and technicians proficient in genetics, neuroscience, optics, and data analysis and the regulatory landscape surrounding optogenetics research and its potential clinical applications inhibits the growth rate of the optogenetics market.

SEGMENTAL ANALYSIS

Optogenetics Market By Sensor Type

Based on sensor type, the pH sensors segment is anticipated to show the fastest growth throughout the forecast period. The growing applications of optogenetics in neuroscience research and the increasing need to understand pH-dependent cellular mechanisms and their impact on neuronal function drive the growth of the pH sensors segment in the global optogenetics market.

The genetically encoded calcium indicators segment is another noteworthy segment among all and is estimated to grow at a healthy CAGR during the forecast period. The growing demand for calcium imaging techniques in neuroscience research, drug discovery, and understanding of brain disorders majorly propel the segmental growth. The ability of genetically encoded calcium indicators to visualize and monitor calcium dynamics in real time provides valuable insights into neural circuits and signaling pathways further boosting the growth rate of the segment.

Optogenetics Market By Techniques

Based on technique type, the channelrhodopsin segment is predicted to account for the major share of the global optogenetics market during the forecast period. The versatility and effectiveness of channelrhodopsin in modulating neuronal activity leads to a better understanding of neural circuits and their role in various neurological conditions primarily driving the growth of the channelrhodopsin segment in the global market.

The halorhodopsin segment is anticipated to account for a notable share of the global market during the forecast period. The growing interest in understanding the inhibitory processes in neural circuits and their implications in neurological disorders drives segmental growth.

Optogenetics Market By Application

Based on the application, the neuroscience segment is anticipated to hold the major share of the global market during the forecast period owing to the growing demand for advanced tools and techniques to study the brain, uncover its complexities and develop potential therapeutic interventions for neurological conditions.

The retinal disease treatment segment is expected to account for a notable share of the global market during the forecast period. The growing need for innovative treatments for retinal conditions such as retinitis pigmentosa and age-related macular degeneration where traditional treatments have limitations primarily drives segmental growth.

Optogenetics Market By Light Equipment

Based on light equipment, the LEDs segment is estimated to account for the major share of the global market during the forecast period. Since they are cheaper, smaller, more reliable, and easy to control, LEDs are found to surpass lasers in every aspect. They are integrated into implants, enabling the delivery of untethered light. However, the major downside and why they were not widely adopted in the optogenetics sector was the difficulty connecting the light with a high-efficiency fiber optic cable. Though single LEDs can emit as much as five watts of light, light is emitted in all directions, not in a coherent beam. These are among the main factors limiting the market segment's growth. However, a new group of fiber-coupled LEDs provides significantly higher fiber-coupled light intensities. Therefore, there are many advances in LED technologies and their implementations. For treating cutaneous and neurological diseases, efficient LED therapies are being used.

The laser segment is estimated to showcase a healthy CAGR during the forecast period. The rising need for targeted and localized control over neuronal activity in neuroscience research drives the demand for lasers in optogenetics and propel segmental growth. The growing number of advancements in laser technology, such as the development of compact and tunable lasers further contribute to the growth of the laser segment in the global market.
