The visible light range scientific camera market is projected to reach USD 0.6 billion by 2028 from USD 0.4 billion in 2023; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.9% from 2023 to 2028.
Medical cameras are widely used during endoscopic procedures. They are less invasive, save expenditure on pre-and post-operative care, and reduce the length of the stay at hospitals. Also, health insurance providers in selected countries are increasingly covering these procedures. All these factors have led to a higher preference for endoscopy procedures among patients and physicians. According to Gastroenterology, in 2019, in the US, nearly 11.0 million colonoscopies, 6.1 million upper endoscopies, 313,000 flexible sigmoidoscopies, 178,400 upper endoscopic ultrasound examinations, and 169,500 endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography procedures are performed annually. Endoscopy is increasingly being used for the treatment/diagnosis of several orthopedic, neurological, and gastroesophageal reflux disorders and cancer. According to Cancer Research UK, 17 million cancer cases were diagnosed worldwide in 2017, and it is estimated to reach 27.5 million by 2040 (an increase of 61.7%). This number is expected to result in significant growth for cancer surgeries, as ~80% of cancer cases require surgery (Source: Lancet Commission on Global Surgery). Thus, the rising incidence of target health conditions is expected to drive the demand for visible light range scientific cameras in the coming years.

The Ontario government, in August 2022, invested USD 1.8 million new scientific cameras and better technology to enhance police efforts to prevent crime, especially gun and gang violence. The funding will go through Ontario's CCTV (closed-circuit television) grant program. The government announced that the funds would replace outdated equipment systems, install new and more CCTV surveillance scientific cameras, and expand current technology-based infrastructure. The authorities also announced that the cameras would be set up in areas prone to violence, as well as to prohibit drug and human trafficking. The program was launched in August 2022 and is part of the gun, gangs, and violence reduction strategy of the province.
