Increasing Popularity of Terahertz Imaging Solutions Fuels Demand for Terahertz Components and Systems
“Terahertz technology has found a widespread application in the fields of biology, molecular spectroscopy, medical science, and space sciences”, states an analyst. As terahertz radiation does not possess any ionization threat for biological tissues, thanks to its low photon energy, terahertz imaging solutions are gaining immense popularity in medical applications, increasing the demand for terahertz components and systems significantly.
Going forwards, the advancement in terahertz technology and the augmenting application of terahertz components in medical imaging and non-destructive testing are anticipated to boost the market’s growth over the next few years.
On the other hand, the limited penetration level of terahertz radiation may hamper the application of terahertz components and systems in various other industries in the near future. Their demand may also be influenced negatively by the lack of awareness pertaining to the benefits offered by terahertz technology and the dearth of skilled professionals for the management of terahertz devices.
North America to Save Leadership but Lose Significant Amount of Shares
According to TMR’s estimations, the global opportunity in terahertz components and systems in 2014 was worth US$56 mn. Expanding at a CAGR of 25.90% between 2015 and 2023, analysts expect it to increase to US$415 mn by the end of the forecast period.
North America emerged as the leading contributor to this market in 2014 with a revenue share of 45.2%. The region although will remain leading, it will lose a significant number of shares to Asia Pacific in the coming years, which is likely to register a rise in its total revenue share from 18.5% in 2014 to 23.2% by the end of 2023.
In 2014, terahertz components and systems were mostly utilized in research laboratories. However, their application is anticipated to increase significantly in industrial process monitoring during the forecast period. Terahertz sources were the most prominently demanded components in 2014. However, terahertz detectors are projected to exceed the former by 2023.
