Transparency Market Research Report Added “Medical Fiber Optics Market” to its database.
Overview of the medical fiber optics market
The findings of this market study indicate that the global medical fiber optics market-which was valued at US$ 863.1 million in 2013-will register a CAGR of 7.6% between 2013 and 2019, and is estimated to grow to US$1,336.1 million by 2019. This moderately healthy rate of growth will be spurred by several factors such as a rising preference for surgeries that are minimally-invasive (where fiber optics lend better maneuverability) and the advancement in diagnostic technologies. While there are many other factors that work in the favor of this market, the two aforementioned factors alone will drive growth to a large extent.
The secondary factors that will bring about the development of the medical fiber optics market are applications such as: light therapy, X-ray imaging, lab and clinical diagnostics, ophthalmic lasers, dental head pieces, surgical microscopy, surgical and diagnostic instrumentation, and endoscopy. As the scope of these applications continues to expand, the market for medical fiber optics will reap the benefits. Fiber optics also complements the miniaturization of medical devices—a factor that cannot be overlooked while studying this market.
Yet, this players and key stakeholders in this market will have to plan strategies around key challenges such as: the increasingly stringent nature of regulations governing the medical fiber optics market, strict standards of compliance, and the risks associated with high-intensity fiber optic lights, as these lights are known to disrupt tissue during histopathology examination.

A geographical overview of the medical fiber optics market
By geography, the largest medical fiber optics market is North America. Here, medical infrastructure is better than that in most other geographical regions. The number of minimally-invasive surgeries conducted in North America each year is considerably high. This has created immense opportunities for the use of medical fiber optics. Market growth is also supported via the initiatives taken by industry bodies such as the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons, Association of Canadian Academic Healthcare Organizations (ACAHO), and the Canadian Healthcare Association (CHA).
Besides North America, developed European countries such as the United Kingdom, Germany, and France boast modern healthcare systems that have reported an increasing adoption of medical fiber optics. However, growth here will be moderate. The fastest growing region within the global medical fiber optics market will be Asia, where infrastructure development is firmly on track, and the formulation of favorable government policies has been highly beneficial. Besides these aspects, the diagnosis of diseases and age-related disorders is on an upswing.
