By Application: The Analytical Sensing segment held the largest market share of the global biophotonics market in 2021.

  • It is a two-part analytic device that consists of two major components: a (bio) chemical microzone (recognition element) that comes into contact with the sample and is closely associated (connected or integrated) with an optical, electric, thermal, mass, or acoustic transducer for converting the recognition pattern into a (usually electric or optical) primary signal that can be amplified and measured by a detector (instrument).
  • Furthermore, they typically respond to the presence and/or concentration (activity) of an analyte species.

By Geography: North America accounts for the largest share among all regions within the Global Biophotonics market.

  • Rapid advancements in the development and adoption of digital health technologies (DHT) across North America, notably in the United States, are one of the major contributing factors to the growth of biophotonics.
  • Increasing regional government initiatives and strategies, favorable healthcare infrastructure, increased investment in R&D activities to develop the industry, and regulatory science activities across the healthcare industry are also propelling the biophotonics market growth in North America.
