Global Adaptive Optics Market to Reach $4.8 Billion by 2026

Adaptive optics (AO) technology is utilized for improving the performance of various optical systems. This is achieved by lowering the effect of incoming wavefront distortions via a mirror’s deforming so as to offset the distortion. The technology works by measuring the distortion in the wavefront and compensating the same by using a corrective device for the errors like liquid crystal array or deformable mirror. At present, magnetics concept deformable mirrors and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) deformable mirrors are among the most commonly used techniques for wavefront shaping applications for AO technology, mainly due to the mature nature of technology, higher versatility and stroke, as well as high resolution offered by wavefront correction. The mirrors used are controlled by a computer system for gainig sharper images. Such images are of critical importance in several industries such as healthcare, aerospace & defense, and industrial manufacturing.

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global market for Adaptive Optics estimated at US$1.4 Billion in the year 2022, is projected to reach a revised size of US$4.8 Billion by 2026, registering a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 35.5% over the analysis period. The United States represents the largest regional market for Adaptive Optics, and is projected to reach US$1.8 Billion by 2026. China is expected to spearhead growth and emerge as the fastest growing regional market with a CAGR of 39.5% over the analysis period. The market is witnessing growing demand from advanced optical systems, with applications such as laser communications, beam shaping, laser countermeasures, microscopy and retinal imaging fueling market growth. Given the technology’s ability to correct wavefront distortion effects in the real time, AO is increasingly finding use in a variety of applications. The growing demand for optics imaging solutions in defense applications, primarily for identification of long distance targets, is anticipated to boost growth in the global adaptive optics market. Demand for AO systems is growing from healthcare industry, while technology usage continues to grow in astronomy, cellular imaging, and aerospace applications. In particular the escalating demand for advanced optical systems for astronomy applications and the growing need for high resolution microscopy for use in the area of biological research are propelling market growth.

Advancements in AO technology, growing need for corrective eyewear, increasing use of AO in ophthalmology and retinal imaging, and rising adoption of ADAS (adaptive driver-assistance systems) in automobiles are also driving demand for AO systems. A notable trend expected to drive adoption of AO is the growing use of free-space laser communication technologies in a range of industries and the rapid pace of advancements being witnessed in the field of professional astronomy. The market for adaptive optics (AO) is being fueled by driven by the steadily rising investments in R&D initiatives focused on advanced optics and optical solutions. Constant advancements in technology are leading to low cost production of various components, thus aiding further adoption of AO systems.

North America accounts for a substantial share of the worldwide AO market. The region’s growth is being fueled by the escalating demand for AO technology in the fields of astronomy, defense, and ophthalmology. The adoption of the technology is poised to grow further in the defense and security, healthcare and astronomy fields in the coming years. In the US, the defense and security mechanism is increasingly making use of AO technology both ground-based and airborne missile defense systems. With defense spending levels continuing to grow, there is tremendous growth potential for AO market in the defense sector. In the coming years, increasing emphasis of regional economies on strengthening ISR (intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) capabilities, growing use of electronic countermeasures for gaining protection against various weapons, and the constant need to improve lethal attacks over enemies will fuel adoption of AO systems in defense sector. North American nations are also leading markets for satellite services, with well-established infrastructure facilities and active space programs expected to fuel need for AO technology. Growing investments in healthcare technology space, increasing use of AO in laser eye surgeries, and the development of AO systems for delivering sharper astronomy images augur well for the market. Europe is another ¬promising market for AO systems, with growth attributed to the important role played by AO technology in the success of E-ELT (European Extremely Large Telescope) project. Adaptive optics market in Asia-Pacific is expected to record strong gains in the coming years, led by expanding applications in astronomy field and increasing focus on R&D initiatives targeting various industries specifically in healthcare and biomedical sectors.  More
