The Adaptive Optics Global Market was assessed at USD 215.7 million in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 1,089.6 million in 2023 at a staggering CAGR of 31.3%. Adaptive optics (AO) use a blend of complex sets of deformable mirrors for correcting distorted images in real-time from the earth’s atmosphere. Adaptive optics solution enables the operator to obtain better details of the subject located far from the source. The high definition mirrors are controlled by a system or a computer to get possibly sharper images. Adaptive optics operates at a frequency of nearly 1000 Hz. At this frequency rate, it becomes a challenge to modify the primary mirror used in the system due to the difficulties caused by vibrations, and a secondary mirror is utilized in addition to other optical components to overcome these challenges. These mirrors are connected to computers for calculation.

The importance of these images is higher in numerous industry verticals such as aerospace & defense, healthcare, and industrial manufacturing sectors. Adaptive Optics is used in microscopy, retinal imaging systems, astronomical applications, and optical fabrication, among others, and is useful in decreasing optical issues by recompensing for optical distortions. Adaptive optics was primarily applied in retinal imaging, and technological advancements have enabled its applications in other sectors.

One major growth factor driving the adaptive optics market is the increasing investment in research and development of optical solutions and advanced optics. Also, the rising demand for adaptive optics in the healthcare segment and high application of adaptive optics in numerous sectors and industries adds to the market growth. Designs which include adaptive optics are highly composite and require high skill which is lacking to some extent, thus restraining market growth. Moreover, the high preliminary cost of investment is expected to impact the market negatively. However, the development that is ongoing in the AO technology and demand for sharp and properly corrected images is likely to reveal opportunities in the coming years.
