Biophotonics is a field of science that employs the power of light (in terms of photons) and other types of radiant energy to examine the functional, structural, biological, mechanical and chemical properties of biological materials and systems.

Though the initial focus of this technology has been in providing enhanced diagnosis for various health conditions, the current application of Biophotonics in a multitude of verticals, such as agriculture, biotechnology, food diagnostics and therapeutics has been the primary driving force behind its wider adoption. This has been made possible by untiring research efforts aimed at attuning the technology to encompass a wider base of applications in the more promising areas of environment control and monitoring and agriculture and food applications.

Advancements in optical technology, high incidences of chronic diseases and increasing demand for minimally invasive surgeries are also contributing to the growth in Biophotonics. Emerging economies have yet to fully exploit the opportunities offered by Biophotonics, which is slated to propel demand in regions such as Asia-Pacific and Latin America. Despite these developments, it is anticipated that a bulk of the market for Biophotonics would be accounted for by its use in the medical sector.

The technology offers capability of addressing some of the essential healthcare needs of an aging global population, which will remain a key factor in bolstering demand. Other significant factors contributing to growth in the market for Biophotonics include ongoing research and development activities in various applications and government support for novel cost-effective medical technologies.
