Summary
Raman spectroscopy is a spectroscopic technique used to observe vibration, rotational and other lowfrequency modes in a system.The Raman effect was discovered over 70 years ago, but Raman spectroscopy was not used as an analytical tool until the invention of the laser.

The initial Raman spectra of biological materials were measured with visible laser excitation, primarily using gas lasers.In chemistry, Raman spectroscopy is commonly used to provide a fingerprint by which molecules can be identified.

Raman spectroscopy relies on Raman scattering or inelastic scattering of monochromatic light, usually from a laser in the visible, near infrared or near ultraviolet range.The laser light interacts with molecular vibrations, phonons or other excitations in the system, resulting in the energy of the laser photons being shifted up or down.

The shift in energy provides information about the vibrational modes in the system. Infrared spectroscopy yields similar, but complementary, information.

In terms of instrument sales, probe-based Raman spectroscopy accounts for the largest share of the global market for Raman spectroscopy, and this product segment is expected to continue to lead the market throughout the forecast period of 2018 through 2023.The major factor driving the market for probe-based Raman spectroscopy is its ability to conduct Raman spectroscopy in real time and easily provide information regarding the materials or samples.

Probe-based Raman spectroscopy accounted for REDACTED of the Raman spectroscopy market in 2017. With advancements in technology, the other types of instruments, such as micro-Raman and Fourier-transform (FT) Raman, are likely to be adopted
by industry for various types of applications.

In terms of sampling techniques, surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) accounted for the largest market share, with REDACTED of the global market for Raman spectroscopy in 2017. Increasing demand forreal-time analysis of samples in the harshest conditions is expected to propel the demand for SERS during the forecast period of 2018 through 2023.

In terms of applications, the life sciences segment led the global market for Raman spectroscopy in 2017 and is expected to continue to do so throughout the forecast period.In addition to the analysis of blood samples, this technology is also used in the analysis of diseases such as cancer.

The need to diagnose disease at the earliest stages is driving the growth of the market.

Among geographic regions, North America accounted for the largest share of the global market for Raman spectroscopy in 2017, and it is expected to continue to do so throughout the forecast period. This is attributed to the well-developed infrastructure and skilled work force in North America.

Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing region. With the growing economies of China, India, South Korea, Australia and Japan, a huge increase in demand for Raman spectroscopy is likely to occur in this region.
