Fact.MR – A Market Research and Competitive Intelligence Provider: The optogenetics market is expected to grow in the assessment period due to technological advancements and increasing behavioral disorders which are providing avenues for market growth. A new forecast by Fact.MR estimates that optogenetics market revenues will nearly double in the period of 2021-2031 with a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17%.

In Neuroscience, optogenetics is used to study neural activity by combining genetic engineering and optical tools. Optogenetics enables researchers to conduct a wide range of studies in order to better understand neuronal circuits in both abnormal and normal behavior. Optogenetics has a benefit over other conventional techniques due to its high ability to provide spatial and temporal specificity for cell targets. Thus, demand in prevalence of abnormal disorders will expand optogenetics market.

According to the Parkinson's Foundation, there are currently 1 million people suffering from Parkinson's disease, further it is expected to rise to 1.2 million by 2030. It is also estimated that 60,000 Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson's disease per year. As a result of the increasing number of cases of Parkinson's disease, a better treatment option will be required, boosting the growth of the optogenetics market in this region.

"One of the important factor responsible for market expansion is advancements facilitated by various public and private institutions, as well as industry leaders. Thus, increasing research and development will lead to development of new products, which is anticipated to create a positive impact on the market growth", said by Fact MR analyst.
