Biophotonics refers to a multidisciplinary research field that uses light-based technologies to study life sciences and medicine. It involves the production and utilization of a light source to detect and manipulate biological materials. Techniques such as spectroscopy, photo-mechanics and fiber optic sensors, which are based on see-through imaging, inside imaging, molecular Spectroscopy, microscopy, analytical sensing and biosensing solutions, are used to study biological tissues, cells and molecules. These techniques aid in emission, detection, absorption, reflection and modification of radiations from biomolecules and biomaterials. As a result, biophotonics finds extensive applications in the fields of life sciences, agriculture, environmental science, dentistry and medicine.
The increasing prevalence of chronic medical ailments, along with the widespread adoption of biophotonics for disease diagnostics, is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. The rising geriatric population, which is more susceptible to such ailments, is also driving the market growth. Furthermore, the widespread adoption of biophotonics from the non-medical sector is creating a positive outlook for the market. It is being used for testing chemicals, toxins and microbial materials for environmental monitoring and defense applications. Additionally, various technological advancements, such as the advent of nanotechnology and novel photoacoustic tomography (PAT) systems, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. These systems use gold and silica nanoparticles for biomedical imaging and accurate sensing of cancer cells in the patients. Other factors, including increasing investments in the development of diagnostic and testing facilities for proteins, nucleic acids and viruses, along with extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are anticipated to drive the market further.
