By Fiber Type Analysis

The multimode optical fiber segment dominated the market and accounted for a revenue share of over 60.0% owing to the widespread adoption of multimode optical fibers in illumination solutions and surgical lighting purposes.

These optical fibers are used when a signal or a light wave has to be transmitted over a shorter distance and are often used in transporting light from the laser source to the locations. Single-mode optical fibers are anticipated to register the fastest growth rate over the forecast period owing to the numerous ongoing research studies on optic-based sensors and growing demand for advanced imaging solutions.

Compared to multimode optical fibers and they are being used in telemedicine and wearables and the emergence of technologically advanced products is expected to boost the growth of this segment. They are mostly used in medical applications such as Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) catheters to deliver image signals or as sensors for the delivery of high-intensity signals.

By Application Analysis

The illumination segment dominated the market and accounted for a revenue share of over 30.0% owing to the growing adoption of fiber optics as a source of illumination in endoscopies and as lighting solutions used in surgical procedures.

The growing usage of high-power lights in healthcare therapies such as light therapy and phototherapy is driving the segment. Biomedical sensing is anticipated to register the fastest growth rate over the forecast period owing to the growing use of biomedical sensors in medical devices and wearables and several ongoing research studies on sensor technology.  Imaging sensors are being used for advanced imaging techniques such as Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and photoacoustic imaging.

Researchers currently are using biosensors for detecting coronavirus at an early stage. Recently, a team of researchers at The Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (Empa), ETH Zurich, and Zurich University Hospital developed an optical thermal biosensor for detecting the presence of coronavirus.

By Regional Analysis

Asia Pacific dominated the market and accounted for a revenue share of over 30.0%. The market growth can be attributed to the improving standard of living, growing imports of high-quality medical devices, increasing medical tourism, advancing healthcare infrastructure, increasing favorable government initiatives, and rapid economic development.

The Middle East and Africa region is anticipated to register the fastest growth rate over the forecast period owing to the growing incidence rate of cancer, growing awareness of benefits associated with minimally invasive surgeries, and constant developments in healthcare infrastructure.
