DUBLIN, Mar 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Optical Coherence Tomography Market 2017-2021" report to their offering.
The global OCT market to grow at a CAGR of 8.16% during the period 2017-2021.
The report, Global OCT Market 2017-2021, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
According to the report, the growing acquisition of small hospitals has helped increase wound care, which has indirectly impacted the growth of the peripheral vascular diagnostic market positively. Tier-1 hospitals acquire small specialized hospitals, which helps to train the healthcare staffs, including the physicians and nurses. As small hospitals get acquired by larger ones, it helps meet patient needs by providing a range of patient monitoring equipment. Owing to the brand name of large hospitals, many people opt to receive healthcare services from them, which increases the need of patient monitoring equipment. Hence, to provide better care at lesser time, these hospitals purchase more equipment in bulk.
Further, the report states that optical imaging systems are low-cost instruments, but the investment involved in laboratories setup and additional renovation cost of medical facilities acts as a constraint for market growth. Countries such as Mexico and South Africa where hospital infrastructure is in the developmental stage require huge investment to setup imaging modalities. The healthcare sector is now focusing on integrated operating rooms, which also referred as hybrid operating rooms, for efficient diagnosis process. The average cost of setting up hybrid operating rooms with optical imaging and other medical imaging systems is about $3-5 million. The setting up of optical imaging systems is not enough for medical facilities as the healthcare sector is undergoing a transition. These optical imaging systems find huge application in the cancer screening process. Investments in cancer hospitals and screening centers are higher owing to the sensitivity of the procedure and the installation cost of medical imaging.
