Near Infrared Spectroscopy Market Trends – Increasing Need for Medical Treatment Due to Rise in Prevalence of Various Chronic Diseases


Rising prevalence of chronic and acute diseases and increasing medical applications of near-infrared spectroscopy are some key factors contributing to the global near infrared spectroscopy market revenue growth

According to Emergen Research, the global near infrared spectroscopy market size was USD 270 million in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 437.3 million in 2028 and register a revenue CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period, 2021-2028.

Market Dynamics:

Factors contributing to substantial revenue growth of the global near infrared spectroscopy market are growing prevalence of chronic and acute diseases worldwide, rising demand for advanced drugs and therapeutics, increasing pharmaceutical applications of the near-infrared spectroscopy technique, and rise in research & development activities in the fields of proteomics, genomics, and forensic science. Near-infrared spectroscopy, abbreviated as NIRS, is a spectroscopic technique using the near-infrared region (780 nm to 2500 nm) of the electromagnetic spectrum. Some of the key applications of this technique include pharmaceuticals, medical research and diagnostics, combustion research atmospheric chemistry, atmospheric chemistry, and quality control of food and agrochemicals.

Near-infrared spectroscopy finds applications in several areas of medical diagnostics, including pulse oximetry, blood sugar, functional neuroimaging, urology (bladder contraction), neurology, neonatal research, as well as in sports medicine, rehabilitation, brain computer interface, and ergonomics. Near-infrared spectroscopy is used as a non-invasive screening tool for intercranial bleeding, and it also used in assessment and monitoring of various brain functions. The technique is widely used in the life sciences, chemical, food & beverage, micro-electronics, and materials science industries to measure and analyze the physical and chemical properties of different products. One of the key applications of near infrared spectroscopy is food quality testing & control. According to the WHO, food-borne disease is one of the major causes of death in the world, and approximately 420,000 people die each year due to intake of contaminated food. Hence, growing concerns of food contamination among consumers and increasing use of the NIRS technique in food testing labs further boost market revenue growth.

Portable Segment Accounted for Largest Revenue Share in 2020:

The portable segment dominated other segments in terms of revenue share in the global market in 2020. Growing demand for portable near-infrared spectroscopy instruments, mainly owing to their advantages over benchtop NIRS instruments such as more compact and ergonomic design, simpler functions, ease of use, in-situ analysis, and high portability, is one of the key factors contributing to revenue growth of this segment.

Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) Spectroscopy Segment to Account for Fastest Revenue CAGR:

. The Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy segment is expected to register the fastest revenue growth rate in the global market over the forecast period. Revenue growth of this segment is mainly driven by factors such as increasing use of the FT-IR spectroscopy technique in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, chemical, food & beverage, and materials industries for applications such as analysis of organic and inorganic compounds and composition of liquids, solids, and gases. Advantages of this technique over other spectroscopy methods, such as improved speed and sensitivity, further drive this segment’s revenue growth.

North America Market Accounted for Largest Revenue Share in 2020:

Among regional markets, the North America near infrared spectroscopy market accounted for the largest revenue share in the global market in 2020. Increasing applications of near-infrared spectroscopy in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, food & beverage, chemical, and materials industries, and continuous advancements in near-infrared spectroscopy techniques are among the major factors providing impetus to the North America market revenue growth. Presence of leading market players in the region, including Bruker Corporation, PerkinElmer Inc., Thermo Fisher Scientific, and Agilent Technologies, further boosts the regional market revenue growth.
