The global Terahertz Technologies Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 644.97 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 23.% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Terahertz technology involves generating and manipulating electromagnetic radiation in the terahertz frequency band which ranges from 0.1 THz to 10 THz. Terahertz radiation exhibits properties between infrared and microwave frequencies. Terahertz imaging is useful in applications where materials with differing electrical conductivity or water content need to be probed or distinguished.
Market key trends:
One of the key trends in the terahertz technologies market is the increasing adoption of terahertz spectroscopy and terahertz imaging systems in non-destructive testing and quality control applications. Terahertz systems provide high resolution defect detection capabilities without being invasive. They are increasingly being used for inspection of semiconductor wafers, solar panels, pharmaceutical tablets and other industrial components to check for defects, foreign object inclusion etc. Terahertz systems allow real-time, non-contact inspection of manufactured products and help improve quality control. Their non-invasive nature promotes rapid terahertz adoption across industries.
Strength: Terahertz technologies have various applications in security imaging, biomedical research, material characterization and other areas due to their ability to penetrate non-polar materials which makes them suitable for identification of foreign materials and chemical composition analysis. They provide high sensitivity and contactless detection capabilities.
Weakness: There is lack of standardization in terms of regulations for licensing terahertz technology which hinders the large scale commercialization of terahertz devices. Additionally, limited power of sources and low signal to noise ratio possess technological challenges.
Opportunity: Growing demand for terahertz spectroscopy techniques across industries like healthcare, defense and security for applications like medical imaging and non-destructive testing offers significant growth prospects. Increasing R&D investments by governments worldwide to develop novel terahertz sources and components also opens new opportunities.
Threats: High component costs and complexity of fabrication poses economic challenges for commercial applications. Emergence of alternative technologies for certain applications like UV-vis spectroscopy also threatens the demand and acceptance of terahertz technology to some extent.
The global terahertz technologies market analysis is expected to witness high growth, exhibiting CAGR of 23% over the forecast period, due to increasing demand for terahertz devices and systems from healthcare sector for biomedical and medical imaging applications.
North America dominated the market with highest revenue share in 2023 owing to large presence of key terahertz technology manufacturers and significant government funding for R&D activities in the region. The Asia Pacific region is anticipated to be the fastest growing market during the forecast period driven by increasing investments in healthcare infrastructures and rising biomedical research in countries like China and India.
