The line scan market is anticipated to be valued at USD 1,824.6 million in 2021 and is expanded to grow at a significant CAGR of 7.7% over 2022-2028. The increasing number of cancers in the world population is propelling the growth of the global line scan market. Even though OCT devices have been on the market for a long time, technological developments will lead to a wider application of OCT imaging in biomedical domains, replacing or complementing some of today’s diagnostic instruments and medical treatments. OCT imaging is projected to have a substantial impact on existing medical practices. This will change current practices, such as the early detection of cancerous growth, and in turn, increase the demand for line scanners application in the early detection of cancer. Increased pharmaceutical applications create growth opportunities for the line scan market. Paper, metal rolls, fiber, railway inspection, solar cells, textiles, pharmaceuticals, semiconductors, and postal sorting are just a few of the uses for line-scan inspection. For instance, SWIR cameras are commonly used in hyperspectral imaging systems for pharmaceutical applications. For example, similar tablets of generic drug compounds such as aspirin, acetaminophen, vitamin C, and vitamin D can be inspected. Moreover, line scan cameras are constantly improving in performance while becoming more and more affordable The linear detector arrays segment is projected to dominate all the other segments in the global line scan. In 2020, Linear Detector Arrays (LDA) accounted for a larger revenue share and are projected to grow with a CAGR of 7.6% from 2022-2028 to reach USD 2,270.3 Mn by 2028. Based on application food industry segment accounted for the highest share.
