Market Report Description

The Global Adaptive Optics Market size is expected to reach $433.2 Million by 2026, rising at a market growth of 13.5% CAGR during the forecast period. Adaptive Optics (AO) is quickly picking up demand as a possibility for enhancing the performance of optical systems. Optical instruments experience errors while measuring and imaging because of distortions found in light waves. Adaptive optics assists with nullifying these mistakes, in this way, improving the performance of the optical instruments. The increasing prevalence of retinal degeneration diseases is anticipated to impel the development of the market. Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) are the most well-known retinal degenerative diseases across the world.

Adaptive Optics Market Size, By Component, 2020-2026

Adaptive Optics Market Size

High-resolution phenotyping with adaptive optics imaging alongside molecular genetics analyses is anticipated to improve the clinical imaging of AMD and RP in the beginning phases. The increasing use of Adaptive optics for clinical application and research is anticipated to fuel the overall market development. Adaptive optics alongside Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is slowly penetrating the market because of its viability in giving enhanced and high-speed imaging. Advanced deformable mirrors are being created to exactly control the incident wavefront by reshaping a reflecting membrane with the assistance of precise magnetic actuators.

Adaptive Optics Market Share, By Application, 2019

Adaptive Optics Market Share

The improvement of these deformable mirrors is anticipated to decrease the size, cost, and complexity of AO-OCT gadgets, accordingly, making adaptive optics broadly adopted for different clinical applications. In this manner, the development of cutting-edge Adaptive optics devices alongside increasing endeavors of vision researchers, ophthalmologists, and entrepreneurs in its development and research, is anticipated to drive the market.

The increasing prevalence of various retinal infections, for example, retinal degenerations, inherited color vision deficiencies, albinism, glaucoma, and numerous other eye diseases is anticipated to drive the market. Furthermore, the increasing awareness of Adaptive Optics (AO) and its efficient utilization in research for retinal imaging is also anticipated to contribute towards market development.

Recent Strategies Deployed in Adaptive Optics Market

  • Sep-2019: Teledyne e2v launched its Flash CMOS image sensor family, specifically developed for 3D laser profiling/displacement applications and high speed, high resolution inspection. The new Flash sensors feature a 6μm CMOS global shutter pixel that effectively integrates high resolution and fast frame rate.
  • Jan-2019: Teledyne Technologies took over the scientific imaging businesses of Roper Technologies, a company that designs and develops software (both license and software-as-a-service) and engineered products and solutions for a variety of niche end markets. The acquisition added imaging solutions, primarily for the life sciences and academic research, to Teledyne’s already strong portfolio of imaging products.
  • Oct-2018: Boston Micromachines Corporation introduced fully-functioning 2040 element MEMS deformable mirror. This launch was the part of a NASA Phase II Small Business Innovation Research Program (SBIR) contract, monitored by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), to develop DM technology needed for exo-planet imaging on the next generation space-based telescopes. The SBIR project resulted in developing new manufacturing approaches for small-stroke, high precision DMs scalable to 8,000 or more actuators.
  • Oct-2018: Teledyne DALSA and Teledyne e2v introduced a portfolio of vision solutions CMOS image sensors. These sensors includes Snappy and Emerald series, Calibir, Genie Nano 5GigE, Genie Nano CXP, Linea HS, Linea ML, Piranha4 Color, Xtium2, and Z-Trak.
  • May-2017: Teledyne signed an agreement with ESO for designing and producing a set of Large Visible Sensor Modules for use on the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT). The ELT is at the forefront of telescope technology. The ELT uses highly sophisticated adaptive optics systems, which enables it to adjust for changes in the atmosphere above it. These systems will require sensors of the highest quality.
