;

Medical cameras are a common component of surgical procedures. Recently, the number of surgeries has significantly increased due to the rapidly aging global population and the rising frequency of chronic diseases, raising the demand for cutting-edge medical equipment. Older patients opt for non-invasive procedures than invasive ones as these procedures allow them to recover more quickly & include fewer complications. Non-invasive procedures typically use cutting-edge camera technology to perform microscopic and endoscopic surgeries.
 

Microscopic cameras are frequently utilized in various surgical procedures from spinal and neurosurgery to cataract and dental operations. The development of surgical microscopes, from simple magnifying tools to information & communication hubs, has effectively aided in examining patient conditions while lowering morbidity rates. As a result, endoscopy, dermatology, ophthalmology, surgical microscopy, and dentistry extensively use medical cameras. The need for medical cameras is anticipated to rise along with the number of surgical procedures in these domains.
 

Dust, microparticles, contaminants, and shocks can damage 3D image sensors. The quality of an image can be significantly reduced by a small disturbance. Thus, these 3D sensors need to be handled carefully. Technologies including 4K, ultra-HD, and 3D depth sensing are more expensive than CMOS & CCD image sensor camera technologies. This restricts the placement of cameras along a production or assembly line to specific locations. Although the price of these cameras has drastically dropped over the past few years, small-scale businesses still find it too expensive. The high cost of camera technologies is restraining the market for visible light range scientific cameras.
 

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the visible light range scientific camera market. The pandemic created disruptions in the global supply chains, leading to shortages of crucial components and delayed production & delivery of scientific cameras. The pandemic also led to an increased demand for scientific cameras in research related to COVID-19. These cameras were used in applications such as microscopy, fluorescence, imaging, and spectroscopy to study the virus & its effects on cells and tissues. This resulted in a surging demand for scientific cameras during the pandemic.
 

Visible Light Range Scientific Camera Market Trends

Visible light range scientific camera industry has witnessed several trends in recent years including the increasing demand for high-resolution & high-speed cameras, the growing use of scientific cameras in life sciences, the adoption of CMOS sensors, the increasing demand for hyperspectral imaging, and the integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Machine Learning (ML). The integration of AI and ML into scientific cameras enables advanced image analysis including automated image, segmentation classification, and quantification. The technology is particularly useful in high-throughput applications where a large amount of data needs to be analyzed quickly. Overall, the visible light range scientific camera industry is expected to continue to grow as imaging technology improves and the demand for high-quality images in research & scientific applications increases.

Based on type, the market is segmented into sCMOS (Backthinned), sCMOS, CCD (Backthinned), CCD, and EMCCD. The sCMOS segment accounted for over 20% share in 2022. As sCMOS cameras use more modern technology than CCD cameras, their market acceptance and appeal are rising. The trade-offs involved with traditional CMOS cameras are eliminated with sCMOS technology. In contrast to earlier CMOS & CCD sensor generations, sCMOS cameras deliver quick frame rates, incredibly low noise, a wide field of view, excellent resolution, and a broad dynamic range. sCMOS uses dual amplifiers and dual analog-to-digital converter readout to achieve a high dynamic range. The data is merged after being simultaneously read from a low-gain channel and a high-gain channel, resulting in a remarkable dynamic range. sCMOS cameras offer low noise, fast speed, and a huge field of view for various applications, ranging from microscopy to astrophysics. Due to these factors, the sCMOS cameras segment is expected to witness substantial growth over the forecast period.
