Global Terahertz And Infrared Spectroscopy Market To Grow At A CAGR Of 21.09% During The Forecast Period

13-Jul-2022 | Zion Market Research

The global terahertz and infrared spectroscopy market was valued at over $1.2B in 2021 and is projected to reach $.4.3B by 2028 while growing at a CAGR of 21.09% during the forecast period.

Terahertz spectroscopy has managed to gain world attention because of its unique features like fingerprint spectrum, biosafety, and excellent penetration. THz is a band of the electromagnetic spectrum that lies between microwaves & far-infrared and is defined by radiation between 0.1 and 10 THz with the corresponding wavelength of 3mm to 30 µm. Some of the remarkable characteristics of the THz radiations are fingerprint spectrum which can be used for substance detection and recognition, possesses excellent biosafety in comparison to X-rays, provides coherent measurements, has high spatial and time resolution along with good presentation thus being able to penetrate dielectric materials like clothing, plastics, and ceramics.

Infrared spectroscopy is an absorption method used for quality and quantity checks. The infrared region comprises a spectrum including electromagnetic radiations that alter between rotational and vibrational states of covalent bonds found in organic molecules. The IR spectrum of any organic compound is like an exclusive physical property used to identify unknowns by interpreting characteristic absorbances along with a comparison with spectral libraries. The technology is widely used in forensic sciences to back criminal or civil cases. With advancements in technology, infrared spectrometers are now manufactured in compact sizes that can easily be transported for field trials.

The global market received a positive push due to the onset of Covid-19 which was majorly due to the rise in research activities for vaccine development and gaining knowledge about the virus. Governments increased their funding and private companies expanded their research activities to tackle the virus's spread.

The global terahertz and infrared spectroscopy market growth can be attributed to the use of these technologies in the pharmaceutical sector where they are used to determine the integrity and heterogeneity of pharmaceutical coating & cores in case of solid dosage analysis. For table coating thickness in-line control, a THz spectrometer is used to monitor and guide in-line pharmaceutical products thus aiding product understanding and process designing. Owing to the enormous implications of pharmaceutical products on the general health of the population, each country has its own set of rules and regulations to be followed if a pharmaceutical manufacturer wishes to expand its user database. These regulations have become stricter in recent times given the increasingly reported case of unethical practices thus forcing the manufacturers to make use of THz and IR technology to provide accurate results to the concerned agencies.

The high cost of THz and IR spectrometers is expected to restrain the global market growth. The rising demand in the healthcare sector may provide growth opportunities in the global market expansion. The lack of affordability in emerging economies may pose challenges to global market growth.

Global Terahertz And Infrared Spectroscopy Market

The global terahertz and infrared spectroscopy market is segmented by technology, spectrum, end-use, application, and region

Based on technology, the global market segments are microcopy, benchtop, hyphenated, and portable & handheld.
