Near-Infrared Imaging Market Trend - Rising Number of Cosmetic Surgeries and High Preference for Near-Infrared Imaging Over Conventional Imaging Methods

Rising prevalence of various cancers including breast, lung, prostate and colon worldwide, rising number of cosmetic surgeries, and high preference for near-infrared imaging over conventional imaging methods are expected to drive global Near-Infrared Imaging market growth

According to Emergen Research, the global near-infrared imaging market size was USD 950.1 million in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 2,252.5 million in 2030 and register a steady CAGR of 10.1% during the forecast period, 2022-2030.

Market Dynamics:

Near infrared (NIR) imaging system is a diagnostic tool that uses near infrared light between 650 and 950 nm to detect chances of abnormalities in the body caused due to injuries or diseases. It is a minimally invasive and non-ionizing method that measures the concentration and oxygenation in the muscles, brain, and other tissues. Near infrared imaging is widely used in physiological and medical diagnostics and research-based activities. These systems are rapidly gaining traction owing to rising number of surgical procedures to cater to increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, cardiovascular disorders, various types of cancers, and neurological diseases.
