Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) has a similar information collection process like other spectral imaging across the electromagnetic spectrum. The primary goal of hyperspectral imaging is to achieve the spectrum for every pixel in the image scene captures and identify the target with high precision and details. Hyperspectral imaging, also known as imaging spectrometry, provides high accuracy and detailed information. HSI has a wide range of applications in vegetation, archaeology, forensic, crime detection, food quality, diagnosis, and many more. The emerging application has led to an increase in the demand for HSI in non-invasive diagnosis, especially in surgical guidance.

Hyperspectral imaging assists in distinguishing spectrally unique materials and also helps to extract the detailed information that is not possible with other types of remotely sensed technique. It is a type of imaging with a large number of narrow wavebands, where each scene contains information about the radiation reflected/absorbed range of wavelength. This has become one of the key methods for evaluating any target in non-destructive and remote-based imaging.

Market Scenario

The global healthcare hyperspectral imaging market has immense growth opportunities in both developed and developing regions. The manufacturers are focusing on developing healthcare hyperspectral imaging systems to support image analysis and fasten the process of various imaging facilities, especially during surgeries. There is increased adoption of imaging systems for high-quality imaging, screening, and diagnosing due to improved access and encouragement from the government & other healthcare institutions, especially in the US, Canada, France, Germany, and the UK.

Imaging mass spectrometry and functional magnetic resonance imaging are the forms of hyperspectral imaging with a wide range of applications in healthcare. The advancements in hyperspectral imaging systems have changed the way the diagnoses in healthcare are being done, and a significant change is witnessed in the optical imaging market.

A majority of the leading healthcare hyperspectral imaging companies focus on developing high-quality cameras that provide an assessment of diagnosis and treatment for various chronic diseases. The manufacturers are emerging with different strategies to compete in the market along with various brands, models, and designs.

The factors such as the rise in the aging population, increased incidence of chronic diseases, the introduction of portable/handheld hyperspectral imaging systems with high operability and safety, and an increase in the number of diagnostic procedures are expected to positively impact the growth of the healthcare hyperspectral imaging market, thereby leading to the high demand for advanced healthcare hyperspectral imaging devices.
