Component – Segment Analysis
On the basis of component, the Wavefront Sensor segment dominated the Adaptive Optics Market accounting for 44.82% of market share in 2019 and is estimated to continue this trend during the forecast period 2020-2025. Wavefront sensor is a key component of adaptive optics and is used in various adaptive optics applications; for instance, wavefront sensors are used for many laser applications such as laser beam diagnostic and laser material processing for controlling laser beam shape and size to increase accuracy and for measuring the aberrations of an optical wavefront. Moreover, wavefront sensors helpful in evaluating the wavefront with enough spatial resolution and suitable speed for real-time compensation. Alongside this, the high price of wavefront sensors compared to other adaptive optics components has further resulted in its high revenue share.
End-user – Segment Analysis
On the basis of end user application, the Astronomy segment is expected to grow with the highest CAGR of 21.2 % during the forecast period 2020-2025. Over the last twenty years, several exoplanets have been found, and their study has become a high priority in the scientific field. Direct imaging of nearby these exoplanets and the surrounding in which they form and evolve is challenging due to the smaller angular separation relative to the central star and high contrast ratio. To tackle these challenges, ground-based telescopes are needed to be equipped with adaptive optics systems optimized to get high-contrast images. According to the Space Foundation, the global space economy in 2018 grew by over USD 85 billion, or 26% from the year 2016. With the increasing government spending in the field of astronomy, the adoption of advanced technology has increased in the recent past years. Moreover, in 2017, Europe commenced the European Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) project to build the largest telescope for the study of the universe. The project is expected to complete by the year 2024 and will make extensive use of adaptive optics systems to gather 13 times lighter image possible today. With such more projects to come in the recent future the demand for adaptive optics systems is expected to grow significantly in the industry.
Geography – Segment Analysis
North America has been analyzed to attribute to the majority of shares in the Adaptive Optics Market during the forecast period 2020-2025 accounting for 40.28% of the total market share. The U.S. and Canada emerged as a lucrative market for adaptive optics in North America market. The astronomical community has been an early adopter of this technology once it was declassified. The 200-inch Hale Telescope in California uses a laser in its adaptive optics system to correct the effects of atmospheric turbulence and enhance the capabilities of the telescope. In addition to the astronomy application, the United States, with its high defense budgets and well-developed industrial defense complex, continue to use technologies like adaptive optics for developing high energy laser systems along with other applications. American defense spending is expected to continue to remain very high, and it is expected to drive the development of modern defense technology using adaptive optics. Bio medical application of adaptive optic systems are also expected to drive the market during the forecast period.
